Easter meal ideas

Easter is just around the corner! Do you know what your plans are yet? Maybe you’re meeting up with some friends for a scrumptious brunch. Perhaps you’re inviting your family over for a wholesome Easter dinner. Or maybe you just want to have your friends over to enjoy a smorgasbord of Easter-themed desserts.

Whatever your plans are for Easter this year, make sure that you impress your guests with some delicious, easy-to-make concoctions. Not sure where to start? Here are some ideas for brunch, dinner, and dessert!

Easter Brunch

Light and Lovely – Keep your Easter meal simple yet delicious this year! Serve a juicy roasted chicken with a fresh fruit salad or asparagus pasta for a tasty, easy meal. Top it off with cucumber finger sandwiches, hot herbal tea, and lavender cookies for dessert!

Delicate and Festive – Enjoy a more refined Easter brunch with an easy-to-prepare yet tantalizing menu! Serve prosciutto and melon salad with cantaloupe vinaigrette, potato and leek cakes, sautéed green beans with bacon, and lemon-blueberry poppy seed muffins.

Brunch Buffet – Go all out with a springy brunch buffet! Let your guests choose between ham and lamb, and serve a roasted vegetable medley, freshly-made bread, fruit salad, spring rolls, and a dessert selection of your favorite fruit pie, angel food cake, and Easter-themed cookies. Delicious!

Easter Dinner

Seasonal and Sumptuous – Welcome spring by choosing seasonal foods to serve during your Easter dinner. We’re thinking juicy glazed ham, watercress-buttermilk soup, salad, and fluffy bread rolls. It’s sure to be a hit!

Fancy and Satisfying – Impress your guests with a plethora of savory and seasonal food this Easter! Your menu can include brown sugar and mustard-glazed ham, green beans with toasted garlic and almonds (way better than green bean casserole – trust us), herbed potatoes au gratin, and hot cross buns.

Traditional Feast – Not everyone likes fancy faire. A traditional, no-fuss Easter dinner can help solve all of your picky-eater problems! Bake a delicious ham, serve up mashed potatoes or potatoes au gratin, roasted asparagus, and top it all off with hot-out-of-the-oven dinner rolls.
