Stop for a moment and think about your favorite Easter memories from years past. Close your eyes, and remember the aroma of tender, slow-cooked spiral-sliced ham drifting through the house… The taste of fluffy, piping hot rolls, fresh from the oven and dripping with butter… Hot, melted cheese-covered potato bake or potatoes au gratin… Joyful laughter emanating from moms and aunts, hard at work in the kitchen… The excited squeals of children as they eagerly seek out each brightly colored Easter egg.
Whether your loved ones will be near or far this Easter, a few things will never change: the love you feel for them and the comfort we can all draw from continuing to honor our time-tested traditions. Whatever your Easter holiday will look like this year, dinner is a given. Traditionally, Easter dinner menus have included entrees such as spiral sliced ham, leg of lamb, or even grilled salmon. The entree may headline every meal, but today we’re putting something different on center stage: Easter side dishes.
From creamy roasted asparagus to hashbrown casserole, there is no shortage of delicious Easter dinner side dishes to choose between. Today, we’re dishing out an all-star round up of our 8 Favorite Easter Side Dishes, and the best part? You can order every one of these to be shipped directly to your doorstep!
Potato Easter Side Dishes
Butter, sugar and fresh sweet potatoes, creamed and topped with a Dutch crust. Bake from thawed or frozen for a sweet taste of home-style cooking.
Decadent layers of golden potatoes, garlic, cream, butter, cheddar and Gruyere cheeses. Heat and serve this traditional Easter side dish for smiles all around.
Stuffed with thick cut potatoes and delicious cheese, this is one classic side dish worthy of serving at any meal.
Fresh, Idaho potatoes are sliced and mixed with a delightful blend of spices, then topped with sour cream, bacon, cheddar cheese and chives for a casserole version of the steak dinner favorite!
Vegetable Easter Side Dishes
Italian cheeses are blended with butter, cream, onions, and of course, spinach to make this mouthwatering masterpiece. Heat and serve with your favorite hickory smoked spiral sliced ham.
Green beans, creamy mushroom sauce and crispy french-fried onions make this comfort food royalty at its finest. Bake from thawed or frozen and enjoy the ease!
7. Creamed Corn
Fresh white corn is mixed with butter, rich asiago cheese, cream and a dab of maple syrup take everyone’s favorite corn dish to the next level.
This may technically be considered an appetizer, but we think our Crispy Asiago Asparagus should be in the running for Easter dinner side dishes, too. Asparagus and asiago cheese are wrapped in a flaky phyllo and sprinkled with more asiago. Mmm-mmm, delicious!
