Easter wouldn’t be complete without a massive feast to celebrate. Easter Sunday also marks the end of Lent, during which some Christians abstain from certain foods or habits. If you’re among the millions of Americans looking forward to a Sunday night full of comfort food, try any of these six recipes to really enliven your dinner options.
Glazed Ham With Horseradish Cream, from Martha Stewart
Easter wouldn’t be complete without a huge ham dish to share with the family. Martha Stewart’s recipe calls for honey, shallot, thyme, creme fraiche, and — in a fun twist — horseradish. After cooking the smoked ham through the oven in the usual way, take it out, baste it with a horseradish mix, then return it to the oven. After letting the ham sit for 20 minutes, you can serve it nice and warm.
Slow Roasted Citrus Salmon, from Better Happier
Ham doesn’t have to be the only savory protein you serve at Easter dinner. This salmon recipe, which is shockingly simple to make, is just as strong of a main course. Cut up some citrus and herbs, place them all in a large baking dish with salmon liberally coated in salt and pepper, coat everything with a thin layer of olive oil, and bake everything for about half an hour.
Deviled Egg Macaroni Salad, from Jo Cooks
This twist on an Easter classic is super quick to make. After hard-boiling eight eggs, remove their yolks and cut up their whites. Cook the pasta while you’re hard-boiling the eggs. Mix the yolks with classic deviled egg ingredients — dijon mustard, mayonnaise, paprika, and more — and then add the pasta and the chopped whites. Stir everything together for an unusual but fantastic Easter side dish.
Mom’s Scalloped Potatoes, from AllRecipes
Combine potatoes, onions, and a whole bunch of baking staples in layers in a baking dish. Pour milk over the mixture while the oven is preheating. After 45 minutes to an hour, this dish should be ready to go. Serve it warm or refrigerate it for next-day use.
Easter Egg Bread, from Baking a Moment
This recipe is among the more technically advanced on this list, but it’s worth the effort to make! Once you’ve made your dough, much of your time will be devoted to shaping the bread. As you work on the bread, boil four eggs in one pot each, and add a drop of gel paste food coloring in each. Once your colored Easter eggs are ready, you’ll nestle them in your bread and bake everything for just under half an hour.
Easy Hot Cross Buns, from King Arthur Flour
Fruits, baking staples, and seasonings combine to form delightful buns you won’t be able to get enough of. Separately, you’ll create icing and toppings, and then you’ll apply the latter before baking the buns (and the former after). Following an hour of letting the buns rise and just 20 minutes of baking, you’ll have a sweet, unforgettable take on a classic Easter sweet.
