As in many other countries around the world, Easter breakfast and Easter brunch are extremely popular in the Netherlands. Spending time with family is central to Dutch Easter celebrations, so what better way to start your day than by enjoying a delicious Easter brunch together?
Tips for an indulgent Easter brunch with a typical Dutch twist
Grabbing a well-deserved lie in before waking to a glorious spring day is how most Dutch prefer to start their Easter holidays. And, once the kids have hunted down their carefully hidden Easter eggs, it’s time to prepare a traditional Easter Brunch.
Our six handy tips below will help make sure your typical Dutch Easter brunch is a resounding success!
1. Nothing says ‘Easter’ quite like brightly painted eggs – boil enough eggs for the entire family to enjoy and either allow your children to paint them at the table or else cook them in special egg paint.
2. Fill a large basket with fresh, warm rolls – if your local baker isn’t open on Easter Sunday or Easter Monday, then use part-baked rolls, such as Plus Brunch Rolls or Danerolles Croissants, instead.
4. Ensure plenty of variety with a choice of popular Dutch bread substitutes, including Bolletje rusks, Peijnenburg breakfast cake, Wasa Crispbread, and don’t forget those two quintessential Dutch Easter goodies; Easter stollen and Hollandia Matze Crackers.
5. Prepare a pot of authentic Dutch coffee or tea and treat the kids to a yummy glass of rich and creamy Dutch Chocomel. If you’re planning a champagne brunch, remember to pop a bottle of your favourite bubbly!
6. Last but not least, get your guests into the Easter spirit by decking your table with colourful napkins and a vase filled with beautiful Dutch tulips.
