Try Out These Recipes for Easter

I know we are still a few weeks away from Easter, but seriously, it is never too early to plan out the day. Especially if you are hosting the holiday this year, you’ll want to make sure you have the meal all figured out! The last thing any of us need is to be running to the grocery store that morning because we forgot something, we’ve all been there and it’s stressful! I’ve scoured the internet for the perfect recipes for Easter and I can confidently say, I think you’ll all like these! Each item has the original recipe linked.

Let me know if you try any out! I’d love to know your favorites!

Honey Baked Ham

Let’s start with the most iconic Easter meal: Ham. It’s traditionally what most people cook for the day and it’s easy to see why. It’s delicious! This recipe is broken down really easily, so I promise you, it’s not going to be something you could mess up! The honey glaze makes the dish, you can’t skip that part! But let’s be honest, the best part is that by making this yourself at home rather than buying it pre-made, you are actually saving so much money. These babies can get expensive! What would Easter time be without this as a main course? It’s our favorite holiday meal to have each Easter Sunday. But what’s even better is that it saves really well from your Easter feast! Leftover ham on hot cross buns is something my whole family looks forward to as leftovers from main dishes.

Roast Beef Tenderloin with Peppercorn Sauce

Here’s something that’s not ham! I love this recipe because it’s something different and it’s broken down into such simple steps. This is something that meat lovers will definitely enjoy! Delicious food paired with Easter appetizers makes for the perfect family dinner. If you aren’t a fan of ham, you’ll want this on your Easter menu! It’s the perfect addition to the dinner table. Put it in good company with mashed potatoes and you’re having a fun holiday!

Smoked Salmon Frittata

How fancy does this look and sound!? The best part is that it’s totally not difficult to make, think about how impressed your guests are going to be when they see that you made this! And maybe this could even make it to the Sunday brunch menu every week, who knows.

Orange Baked Ham

If you’re not super into the honey glaze trend, try out the orange glaze! It’s very spring friendly and tastes amazing! Don’t be intimidated though, the oven does a majority of the work, so you can tackle this recipe and be the perfect host.

Bay-Crusted Salmon with Creamed Spinach and Wild Mushrooms

Salmon is a great dish to go for as a meat alternative option. It pairs well with a lot of sides and I love the creamed spinach addition to this! Getting as many vegetables into a dish as possible is sometimes a challenge, but this sounds fantastic!

Lamb is another pretty popular Easter dish! This recipe claims to be the best ever, and from the looks of it, I think they might be right! It looks so juicy and has the option to add mint jelly, which sounds so intriguing.

Roasted Vegetable Lasagna

Adding in a great vegetarian main menu item for the holiday! You can never go wrong with lasagna and this one is full of veggies. If you are looking for dairy-free options, you can totally revamp this recipe and swap out the cheeses for your favorite dairy-free products.

Deviled eggs are a super popular party finger food and it’s because they are so yummy yet so easy to make. I thought this recipe was a great twist on the classic appetizer. It’s always fun to add more color to the table, and hide veggies in food!

Caramelized Carrots with Chermoula

I think carrots are another commonly cooked dish for the holiday, ad why that is I’m not exactly sure. Maybe because that’s what the Easter Bunny prefers? I struggle with finding good carrot dishes my kids will like and I think I have officially found the most delicious recipe! How amazing does this look?! Fresh veggies make for tasty appetizers and side dishes at an Easter lunch or Easter dinner. A pinch of salt can also make the world of a difference if you don’t want a creamy sauce.

Potato Salad

Potato dishes are another traditional part of Easter meals. They are normally pretty easy to make and can feed a lot of people, which is perfect if you have all of your family coming over- or you like leftovers! This potato salad recipe has my mouth watering!

Creamy Garlic Mashed Cauliflower

If you’re not into potatoes or there are too many potato dishes already, this is a healthier alternative! It has the same type of mashed potato feel, but it’s just cauliflower! It’s an easy way to take a classic recipe and make it into a special meal that is healthy.

I’m really excited to try this one out this year and since my girls love to help me bake, it’ll be even more fun to do together. I love the decoration part, as well and the pineapple twist on the classic cake will be a crowd pleaser!

Pink Lemonade Thumbprint Cookies

Thumbprint cookies are such an underrated treat! They are easy to personalize with the filling, as they are normally a jam or a chocolate, but the pink lemonade flavor is the perfect change for spring. I recommend bringing these to family and friends for the holiday!
