A delicious spring feast has been part of Easter celebrations for centuries. It’s an integral part of the holiday, so how will you put your holiday table together? What should you serve at your Easter party?
A great Easter meal always begins with at least one teaser course, small bites of food that can be enjoyed without plates or tabletops, if needed.
Deviled eggs are the perfect addition to the Easter buffet. Eggs and Easter go together perfectly, and deviled eggs are a great, bite-sized edible. Hard boil your eggs, soak them in cold water and peel them all. Cut your eggs in half, scoop out the yolks and mix them with the seasonings and ingredients you like.
Traditionally, the Easter dinner includes ham. It’s a popular and easy-to-obtain meat, and widely available in spring (when Easter occurs). To be a little different, try serving lamb instead. It’s also perfect as a spring dish, but can be difficult to prepare. Rack of lamb or lamb chops, when cooked correctly, can be a show-stopper at any gathering.
If you’re serving a meal, you’ll want to add side items for everyone to enjoy. Spring salad is the perfect option for Easter and an easy solution for a party. Put your greens and vegetables in a large bowl, and serve other salad items on the side.
All spring vegetables are appropriate at an Easter feast , but glazed carrots are a must-have. They are the Easter bunny’s favorite dish, after all.
Finish off your Easter meal with a dessert that truly celebrates the holiday: carrot cake. If you’re already making carrots for the meal, prepping for the cake won’t take too much extra work. A lot of chocolate is given away at Easter, so carrot cake is a perfect dessert. It offers a different flavor, but it’s still sweetly satisfying. Don’t feel like baking an entire cake? Make cupcakes instead.
No matter what you serve, enjoy it with friends and family and enjoy the holiday. Give your guests a spring feast, and keep the centuries-old tradition of celebrating Easter.
