This year’s Easter Dinner is all about ease of preparation! From the grocery store trip to the table, this holiday menu was made with you in mind. What’s the secret? Many of the recipes use the same ingredients! From appetizers to the main course, side dishes, salads and desserts, this Easter Dinner Menu makes it simple to host your complete holiday meal with style and grace.
There have been times when I’ve hosted holiday or family meals that required huge trips to the grocery store, tons of fridge space to store the ingredients… there were just too many components! Something had to give.
So how can a gal host a traditional southern holiday meal with all the side dishes and favorites without having to buy a second fridge and extra hands at the grocery to push a second cart?
The answer is all in the menu planning! Choosing dishes that all revolve around the same basic ingredients makes all the difference– from the store to the storage to the serving– cooking a big holiday dinner instantly becomes so much easier.
And this year’s Easter Menu takes full advantage of that little trick. The pineapple mustard we whip up for our appetizer tray also doubles as the glaze for our ham. The same fruits are used in the tea, the ham glaze, the fruit salad and the dessert. The deviled eggs and the potato salad share ingredients. Basics like mayo and mustard are used again and again.
I am so excited to share this Easter menu with you AND the secret to its success. Make some of the menu or all of the menu; it’s here for you to enjoy. Just remember, whatever you make this Easter, make it something your family will love!
