Easter Brunch ideas

I'm thinking about having family and friends over for Easter Brunch.

I've got some ideas, but wondered what you creative low-carbers out there might come up with.

I'm trying to steer away from things that'll need to be tended to at the last minute, such as scrambled eggs and the like.

Any favorite brunch recipes?

There's a good one on the recipe board. I think it's called overnight sausage breakfast casserole. It's great! I did add some mushrooms and green onions. No one would ever think of it as "low carb". It's just one of those egg bake dishes you make ahead and bake in the morning. You could add a fruit salad and bread or rolls for the non-low carbers. I made this last night and we love it!

Pami,

Is the sausage cooked ahead of time or do you put it in raw?

This sounds like an awesome recipe.....

I'm also having brunch at my house for Easter sunday..11 guests at least. I'm going to make 4 different crustless quiches, a huge spinach salad, bacon and breakfast sausages (both easy to cook ahead and keep warm), gingerbread egg custards, a baked ham, a fresh fruit platter, individual sf jellos in a multitude of colours each with a dollop of whipped cream, and for those in the crowd who don't low carb (only my 11 year old son and I low carb) I have to make my annual Easter Treat Pie...but since everything but that will be low carb, it will be easy

It's crumbled, browned and drained before it goes into the crockpot.

I just realized something.
This is an old, old recipe.
I think the more modern-day crockpots cook at a higher temperature
than the older ones did and this recipe was developed (I think) around
the time that crockpots were becoming popular.
You might want to check it at 6 hours or so....

I've made the white castle hamburger pie using breakfast sausage instead of hamburger. It's very good. Leave out the onion soup mix too.
