    Easter Dinner Dishes

    I'm trying to decide what to fix for Easter dinner. I will have ham, but it has been so cold and rainy here and there is nothing fresh in the garden. My asparagus is not even up yet. I want something cheerful and Springy on the table. What are some family favorites that make it to your Easter dinner table? There will be only 4 or 5 of us after we have attended sunrise services, breakfast at church, and then our regular Sunday services.

    Having ham also. Adding a Caesar salad, sweet potatoes, baked beans, and steamed snow pea pods and cauliflower. We'll have angel food cake with berry sauce for dessert. Only be 3 of us this year! DS and family/friends (usually 6 or 7) are heading out of town.

    Tiny new potatoes say spring to me but you can usually get them in the supermarket now. I year I did the bunny cake for dessert, it turned out cute .You do a round cake, cut it in half and ice it with cool whip and use jelly beans for the features. I used a styrofoam plate for the ears and whiskers.Name:  image.jpeg

    My kids always request Broccoli and Cauliflower salad. It goes well with ham. Hot dinner rolls, spuds, ham gravy.

    Gotta have creamed new peas and new potatoes. Coconut cake for dessert.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    We are having ham, corn, lima beans, scalloped potatoes, rolls, deviled eggs, fruit salad and sweet potato souffle. http://www.geniuskitchen.com/recipe/...souffle-149328. We love this. The only change I make is to put 1/2 cup brown sugar in the casserole instead of 1 cup of regular sugar. I will have 30 people this year. This potato dish is also delicious. https://www.cinnamonspiceandeverythi...H26XfQ2UZXT.32. I just put the whole thing in a casserole dish and bake it that way.

    I know that this is such a mid-west 1950 suggestions but how about a spring like jello. In a ring mold full of fruit like pineapple, mandarin oranges or pears all arranged in a pattern. It is a light dish and those gem tones of clear jello are spring like.

    Or... I just thought of another idea. A big salad with different kinds of greens. Hide a little bunny near by for a bit of spring frolic on this April Fool's Easter day.

    We always have either crawfish stew, bisque, or boiled crawfish for Easter. I live in southern Louisiana and crawfish is a staple here at this time of the year. Happy Easter! Enjoy your day.

    There will only be 4 of us this year. Having the usual---spiral ham with glaze, funeral potatoes (Recipe on this site), green bean casserole, deviled eggs, tossed salad, veggies and dip (our appetizer), Cherry Delight (this site again), Lemon Meringue pie.
    Kids have asked for "Throwed Rolls" like the ones they throw to the customers at Lambert's in Sikeston, Missouri, or in Gulf Shores...

    Making doubles of some things because we need gluten and dairy free for DH!

    i highly recommend "Peeps". They look springy and so cheerful on the table - while they last.
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    2 different kinds of egg bakes, sliced ham, caramel rolls, fruit salad, juice, coffee, poppy seed bread, and a dish of assorted Easter candy (mostly chocolate!).

    I like the jello ideas. I also like the 7 layer salad. Always seems fresh and includes yummy ingredients - eggs, bacon, onion, green peppers, peas with the lettuce. Yumm

    I opened this thread thinking I was going to see some cute Easter china/place settings because of the title! :-) Tells you my interest is more in the settings than what's on them! :-) :-)

    We will be having breakfast to accommodate different obligations. Sour dough waffles, fruit salad, those cinnamon rolls/pull apart (recipe was recently on here by tranum, thank you!) and either the overnight egg casserole or quiche. Just saw a new recipe and if I can find it again that’s what I will do. Although I am tired and the casserole might just win out!!!! There are 14 of us including the grands! !! Can’t wait for the little ones to look for eggs. That is always Such fun!!!

    My husband always liked to have orange jello with pineapple, shredded carrots, and celery. This yr I'm having ham, green bean casserole, Waldorf salad, layer lettuce salad, speghettios salad (Eagle Brand dressing) chips, and hash brown cheesy potatoes, another salad with homemade cranberry sauce and pineapple in cherry jello, and chicken dressing. Also pumpkin pie w Cool Whip and brownies (from mix for chocolate-lovers) Daughter is bringing deviled eggs and cheesecake. DIL is bringing snack tray. There will be 11 of us. My husband died in the last year and I don't cook for myself, so I'm counting on lotsa left-overs! LOL.
    Happy Easter to everyone.

    Some days I think I am one of the few people who really do not like ham.

    It is just my son and I for Easter, which is just fine be me. We will have prime rib roast, spuds, asparagus and probably the last of the spaghetti squash. Dessert will be chocolate Pavlova. My step mum used to make Pavlova for my son, we have not seen her in 3 years and he has missed it. I found a recipe to try.

    We will cook together and set a nice table.

    Usually we would have lamb, but we are having lamb burgers for dinner tonight.
    Attending University. I will graduate a year after my son and year before my daughter.

    Well, we were going to roast the duck my SIL bought for the occasion, but he now has to work, so duck another day and we are going to stuff and bake Cornish game hens, Brussels sprouts, avocado citrus salad, and hopefully scalloped potatoes (depends if I can figure out how to co ordinate baking them and the hens).

    (No, you are not alone. The only way I will eat ham is in a pot of beans.) way too salty otherwise.
