Remember when the Easter Bunny came around and hid eggs for you to find in your yard? And sometimes in your grandparent's yard? And sometimes the park? Man, that bunny can get around! Well that was practically the only tradition I had for Easter every year. I don't recall large family gatherings and lavish meals.
My better half, on the other hand, has grown up with Easter being a huge family get-together. Neither of us are around family this year, so in honor of one of the traditions that her family celebrates, we prepared a traditional Croatian Easter Breakfast...even though she's not Croatian (but her uncle-in-law is).
Honestly, I don't think a tradition could be any easier. 4 things make up breakfast. That's it. They all go hand-in-hand, yes they do. It's quick to prepare as well (unless you make one from scratch). Learn all about Croatian Easter Breakfast after the jump! Happy hopping!
1 hard-boiled egg
1 slice of ham
1 green onion
1 slice of raisin bread
1. Hard-boil an egg. Easy. Done.
2. Heat up a piece of ham (or not - either way works). Easy. Done.
3. Wash a green onion. Easy. Done.
4. Slice one piece of your favorite raisin bread. Easy. Done.
You've gotta love how absurdly simple that was. I did! Yet it tastes great. Most importantly, it brings a little tradition into the home for us to enjoy.
