With Easter and spring entertaining season coming up, it is time to think about spring brunch recipes. It is totally amazing how many delicious meals can be made for under $10. A secret in a lot of them is eggs. Did you know an egg costs, on average, less than 50 cents? An plain omelet can be made for $1! This time I stretched the be $10 per dish since that is usually how much it takes to feed at least 4 to 6 people. These are all simple and straightforward meals that range from the expected (quiche) to the fun (strawberry oven pancake – pictured above) to the unusual (bacon and egg pizza!) and would be great for Easter entertaining and beyond!
