My favorite Spring and Easter meal recipes.
I love sharing my favorite holiday menus with friends and followers. I’ve always been one for traditional holiday menus with a few twists and turns thrown in for good measure! My favorite traditional Easter meal is below. You can click on any link to go directly to the recipe. Many of the recipes are accompanied by a video tutorial or tips + tricks for making the recipe easier. I hope you find something that you can make for your family.
What is a typical Easter meal?
There isn’t really a guidebook when it comes to what you should eat on Easter. But when thinking of an Easter meal, ham is a staple. This brown sugar spiral ham recipe is a perfect addition to your Easter spread! With all of these recipes, you are sure to have a wonderful assortment for your Easter meal.
Can most of these dishes be made beforehand?
Yes! Most of these dishes can be prepared beforehand. That way you can enjoy church and come home to an almost ready meal. This is so helpful because it minimizes time in the kitchen on Easter, you can spend it with your family instead!
Will these recipes work for large numbers of people?
Absolutely! These recipes have something for everybody in the family, with a wide range of sides to choose from. And if you’re having an extra-large crowd, you can always double the recipe to make sure everybody can have a portion.
What can you do with these leftovers?
If you have any food leftover after the family leaves, you don’t have to waste any of it! These recipes make the yummiest leftovers, and you have a lot of options of what to do with them. For example, you can use the leftover ham in ham sliders for a delicious lunch option. The roasted lamb is also wonderful in sliders as well, there isn’t a limit to these leftover options!
- Easter lamb. The Best Greek-style slow-roasted leg of lamb.
- Easter ham. We love this Brown sugar encrusted Kentucky Legend Spiral Ham.
- Corn pudding. Dynasty star Linda Evans’ corn pudding is the best! Cheesy with a kick!!!
- Boursin Potato Gratin. This cheesy scalloped potato dish is decadent and delicious!
- Salad. This shaved Brussels salad with pear, glazed nuts & gorgonzola is divine!
- Vegetable side instead of salad. Roasted Brussels sprouts & sweet potato medley.

- Cake. Best white cake with buttercream frosting (decorated as a naked cake).
- Icebox dessert. This old-timey Chocolate Eclair Dessert is yummy and make-ahead.
