A brunch might be easier for your family to schedule than dinner would be. Typically, brunch is less expensive to serve than dinner is. Here are a few easy recipes for an Easter brunch that you can start with.

Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs
This recipe comes from KitchMe. It adds bacon and cheddar cheese to the typical deviled egg recipe. You will need:

* 12 eggs
* 1/2 cup mayonnaise
* 4 slices of bacon
* 2 tbsp cheddar cheese (finely shredded)
* 1 tbsp mustard

First, you need to hard-boil the eggs. While the eggs are boiling, place the bacon in a large, deep, skillet. Cook over medium heat until the bacon is evenly brown. Crumble the bacon, and set it aside.

After the hard-boiled eggs are done, and cooled, it is time to peel them. Cut each one in half lengthwise. Remove the yolks and put them in a small bowl. Mash the yolks with mayonnaise, crumbled bacon, and cheese. Stir. Fill the egg white halves with the mixture. Refrigerate them until it is time to serve. This recipe gives you enough servings for 24 people.

Cheesy Ham and Hash Brown Casserole
This recipe also comes from KitchMe You will need:

* 1 package of frozen hash browns (32 ounce package)
* 8 ounces of ham (diced)
* 2 cans of condensed cream of potato soup (10.75 ounce cans)
* 1 container of sour cream (16 ounce container)
* 2 cups of sharp cheddar cheese (shredded)
* 1 1/2 cups of parmesan cheese (grated)

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9 x 13 inch baking dish. In a large bowl, mix the hash browns, ham, cream of potato soup, sour cream, and cheddar cheese. Spread the mixture into the baking dish. Make sure it is evenly spread. Sprinkle the parmesan cheese on top. Bake for 1 hour (or until bubbly and light brown). This dish can be served immediately and it will serve 12 people.

The Easter Brunch can be held before Easter in place of dinner. Or, it might be fun to have the Brunch the day after Easter dinner. The above recipes are a good way to use up leftover hard-boiled eggs and ham. Turn them into something more interesting than ham and egg salad sandwiches.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
