Easter Brunch

Easter Brunch

For our take on Easter brunch we decided to go traditional, with a Zepter twist! Glazed, cooked ham acts as our centerpiece and is paired with two superfood salads, refreshing crudités and decadent asparagus with hollandaise. For dessert, an Easter sweetbread to have with coffee.
This colorful spread is large enough to satisfy your guests until dinner time, thanks to a balance of proteins, slow burning carbs and salads bursting with vitamins.
As always, all these dishes were prepared with the help of Zepter Masterpiece Cookware and kitchen appliances. Subsequently, we were able to prepare our ham and asparagus without adding any additional oil, fats or water during the cooking process. This way, maximum nutritive value, flavors and aromas were maintained and the integrity of our ingredients was preserved.
Bon appetit!

  • Brush the tops with egg wash, top with almond slivers and place in oven to bake at 220°C for about 15-20 minutes
For the ham
  • Combine mustard, honey, apricot jam and seasonings to make glaze
  • Partially slice the cooked ham, leaving the bottom intact
  • Place in a Zepter Z-2030 casserole pot and cover in the glaze
