6 Easy to Make Recipes for Easter Dinner

Each year, our family gathers in our home for a big Easter dinner after church. We all look forward to this time together and I do my best to make it special. As I was planning our menu for this year, I came across some delicious recipes and thought I would share them with you. Whether you want a little inspiration or are looking for an entire Easter menu, I hope you find it here. I’m warning you though, you WILL be hungry after reading about these mouth-watering dishes!

Let’s begin with the main dish – Baked Ham with Brown Sugar Mustard Glaze. I love simple, easy, recipes with only a few ingredients and this recipe is just that. But don’t let the simplicity fool you. All fifty-eight reviewers gave this recipe five stars.

A  cheesy,  starchy, side dish is essential at every family gathering. This Potato Gratin recipe by Joanne at Fifteen Spatulas will surely fit the bill. Hot and cheesy potatoes with garlic and thyme – oh yeah!

For the health conscious, this Fresh Broccoli Salad by Food Network’s Alton Brown combines ingredients such as broccoli, tomato, lemon juice, and basil. This salad could be served with grilled meat, as a picnic side dish, or stand alone for a great weekday lunch. A recipe as versatile as this deserves a place in everyone’s collection.

For a fresh take on a traditional side salad, try this Blackberry Honey Walnut Salad. With blackberries, apples, creamy feta, and honey roasted walnuts this salad is sure to please. Jen at Carlsbad Cravings has also created an easy Blackberry Basalmic Vinaigrette to go along with it. YUM!

My hubby loves lemon pound cake and this Lemon Buttermilk Pound Cake recipe posted by Sarah Copeland Sawicki on All Recipes looks divine. The actual name for the recipe is Lemon-Buttermilk Pound Cake with Aunt Evelyn’s Lemon Glaze. Any recipe special enough to have a relative’s name in the title has to be good! (And Sarah claims this recipe won her mother a blue ribbon.)

It’s a perfect dessert to complete Easter dinner. Is your mouth watering?
