Easter is coming up this weekend people and we all know one the best ways to celebrate Easter (and every weekend!) is with brunch! Brunch is probably my favorite time of the week, and Easter weekend in D.C. is one of the best times to brunch in the capital.
There is one slight problem. Brunch is not too kind to my bank account and brunch over Easter weekend, is definitely not intern budget friendly. So what’s an intern to do?
Homemade brunch of course! Having a homemade brunch with your fellow interns is the perfect way to brunch on a budget. To help you guys out, I’ve rounded up 5 top Easter brunch recipes to suit every taste.
1. Eggs Benedict

With the exception of the Hollandaise sauce, it’s a great super easy dish to prepare, and one that can be adapt in so many different ways. Don’t fancy bacon? Replace it with salmon or even cheese!
