This year, break out of routine and try a new recipe or two! To make it easy for you, we’ve gathered 12 Easter Recipes Worth Saving in this handy recipe round up!
Ham is to Easter what the Ribeye is to steak lovers. There are three main types of ham which are typically prepared at Easter: fresh ham, cured and smoked ham, and cured ham. Fresh ham is ham that has not been cooked, cured or smoked. Cured ham has usually been pre-cooked, or requires only some cooking, and cured and smoked ham has also been smoked.
Most Easter ham recipes involve cured, or cured and smoked ham, which simply needs to be heated before serving. Be sure to read the instructions on your ham to ensure that you prepare it correctly and safely.
As a matter of preference, we recommend choosing a fully cooked, spiral-sliced ham for Easter…and any other occasion that warrants a delicious ham. The convenience of simply heating and glazing the ham simply cannot be beat, and the flavor is flawless. With that being said, take your Easter ham to the next level this year and try one of our favorite ham glaze recipes.
Lamb has been the highlight of many an Easter dinner table for centuries, and with the numerous delicious recipes available, we can certainly understand why! Lamb is traditionally served as rack of lamb, lamb chops or leg of lamb, or lamb roast, and is truly a hallmark of spring. The rich herb flavors of lamb pair wonderfully with a wide variety of vegetables and salads, so choose an assortment of sides you love to serve with a great Easter lamb recipe.
Prime Rib Roast is a go-to holiday staple year-round, and we’re not complaining. Rich, tender prime rib roast cooks and plates beautifully, and leaves everyone asking for more. Serve prime rib with au jus or sauce, or both, and choose a bright assortment of sides like Crispy Asiago Asparagus, Twice Baked Potatoes, and Broccoli Au Gratin.
There’s never a bad time for steak, and we love that Easter dinner has evolved to include steak as a favorite Easter entree. Choose from Filet Mignon, Ribeye, Kansas City Strip, T-bone or Porterhouse…or whichever succulent cut your heart desires. Serve with Hashbrown Casserole or Baked Potato Casserole, Creamed Spinach, Green Bean Casserole, and dinner rolls for an Easter menu your guests will applaud!
