Sharing today, 52 of my favorite dinner recipes to entertain guests or for festive family dinner on Easter this year.
Time passes so quickly. It was just New Year and Jan is finishing already!
This year I wanted to give you a huge selection for Easter dinner menu. So, was compiling this post for a while. I found 52 of my top favorite recipes which will be perfect for Easter dinner. Once I had it ready, I thought why wait until Easter month to share it. So here you go! Bookmark it, pint it to reference later.
To make dinner menu selection easier.. I have divided these recipes into 4 courses:
2) Sides - Salads and Bread
3) Main Course - Meat or Vegetarian
How to use this Menu?
Easter dinner or otherwise, I always decide my family dinner party menus in same order as mentioned above.
1) Pick few appetizers (I prefer to mix some homemade and some good quality store bought to keep life easy.)
2) Decide main course - meat or vegetarian. (I always have combination of two). And then pick sides which will work best around the main course.
3) Pick a dessert.
That's it. Dinner menu is ready!
If planning a Chicken Dinner or Lamb Dinner? Vegetarian dishes can be served as hearty side.
If planning a healthy Easter dinner? Bread can be skipped and you can pick one lite and one loaded salad with a meat or vegetarian main course.
I mostly make cakes for dessert. If time pressed, go for a store bought ice cream and serve family-style.
Even for weekly menus, these 52 recipes can make more than 30 meal plan combinations. (hint hint)
