Tips for Cooking Easter Dinner Recipes

  1. Plan ahead. Make a shopping list and prepare dishes in advance, so you’re not scrambling on dinner day.
  2. Choose some make-ahead recipes. When planning your day, choose some recipes that can be made a day or two ahead of time so that you don’t feel like you are spending all your time cooking. Choose make-ahead dishes like soups and desserts to give yourself a break.
  3. Consider dietary restrictions. If you have guests with dietary restrictions or preferences, make sure you have options for them. Consider making a gluten-free side dish or a vegetarian main course.
  4. Ask guests to bring a dish. Don’t be afraid to ask guests to bring a dish or help with the cooking. This will take some of the pressure off you and bring everyone that much closer when they feel like they contributed to the meal.
  5. Use seasonal and fresh produce. If you can, buy your seasonal veggies, like carrots and asparagus, from your local farmers’ market. Seasonal vegetables also tend to be more budget-friendly as there is more availability.
  6. Variety is key! If you are planning food for the whole day, plan a mix of sweet and savory dishes with a variety of ingredients – not everything has to contain carrots.
  7. Finally, don’t stress too much! Easter dinner is about spending time with loved ones and enjoying delicious food. As long as you have a few crowd-pleasers on the menu, everyone will have a great time.

How to Plan an Easter Menu

Planning a dinner menu for Easter can be exciting and fun, but it can also feel overwhelming if you’re unsure where to start. Here are some steps you can take to plan a delicious Easter dinner menu:

  • Decide on your main course. Lamb is a popular choice for Easter dinner, but you may also want to consider chicken, turkey, shepherd’s pie, or lasagna. You can also pick a vegetarian main dish for a lighter meal.
  • Choose your sides. Consider traditional Easter side dishes like mashed potatoes, green beans, and glazed carrots. You can also add some seasonal flair with dishes that feature springtime vegetables, like asparagus and peas.
  • Add some appetizers. Start the meal with easy and flavorful appetizers like deviled eggs, spinach artichoke dip, or a charcuterie board.
  • Don’t forget about dessert. What better way to end your meal than with a sweet dessert? Try carrot cake, lemon bars, or a fresh fruit cocktail. There are so many options!

How to Keep Food Warm During Easter Dinner

  • Oven: As long as you’re not cooking anything in the oven, you can set it to 200°F and store dishes in there to keep them warm.
  • Aluminum Foil: If your oven is not free, you can simply use aluminum foil, which has reflective properties that protect the food from light and oxygen. The foil reflects the thermal energy to the food, which maintains the moisture, flavor, and texture.
  • Crock Pots and Instant Pots: Think of recipes that can be made in your crock pot or instant pot that will keep warm during your Easter dinner. You can use these appliances to keep foods warm even if you don’t cook in them.
  • Insulated coolers: You can use a cooler to keep food hot as well as cold. The insulation technology that keeps out the heat to maintain cold foods also works to trap heat in and keep food hot for hours at a time. You can even line the cooler with aluminum foil for even better results.
  • Chafing buffet set: You can use disposable chafing dishes to keep everything warm. Set up a table to display all the hot dishes for easy access and maintain temperature throughout your meal.

How to Store the Leftovers

  • Follow the recipe instructions. Some dishes require refrigeration immediately, while others can be safely stored at room temperature. Always consider the recommended storage guideline provided in the individual recipe post to maintain freshness and ensure food safety.
  • Divide into smaller portions. That way you’ll have ready-to-go individual servings that can easily be reheated or incorporated into other recipes, streamlining your meal prep.
  • Store dry and wet foods separately. If possible, keep the salads undressed and have salad dressing on the side to maintain freshness and proper textures.
  • Freeze for longer storage. Following the individual recipe recommendations, many recipes are freezer-friendly. Not only does this extend the lifespan of your leftovers, it also provides the convenience of having ready-made meals on hand for busy weeknights.
  • Pack a complete meal for your guests. Using compartmentalized containers, create a well-balanced complete meal for your guests to take home with them. This way, they can enjoy a little bit of all their favorite Easter dinner recipes when they’re home.
