Hi friends! We’re counting down the days until Easter, and I’m so excited. The kids can’t wait to find treats in their baskets, but I can’t wait until Easter dinner. Some families do brunch, but we’ve always celebrated with an early dinner, and I’m really looking forward to getting together with the family. I’ve been showing you some of our favorite foods, and so I thought it would be nice to put together some Easy Easter Meal Ideas, just in case you still need some inspiration.
The Main Dish
Honey Mustard Crock-Pot Ham
We always have ham for Easter and Christmas, and I’ve found that the easiest way to prepare ham is to use the slow cooker. Not only does this free up your oven, but it also keeps the ham from becoming too dry.
Easter Side Dishes
Homemade Potato Salad
We’ve had potato salad for Easter as long as I can remember, and this is a very old-timey, vintage type of recipe. My grandmother used to make this, and then my mom did, and now it’s my turn. It’s super easy too!
Easy Mashed Sweet Potatoes
We serve sweet potatoes as an alternative dish for those who don’t like potato salad. This dish is very easy to prepare, and the kids just love it!
Asparagus is perfect for spring and only takes a few minutes to prepare. Adding bacon, lemon and Parmesan cheese takes this simple dish to a whole new level!
Basil Parmesan Deviled Eggs
A lot of people have deviled eggs at Easter, but you can make them taste even better by adding some extra flavor. And, you can always make them ahead of time, which is always a good thing!
Marshmallow Fruit Salad
This is a totally yummy side dish, and it’s one of the kid’s favorites holiday salads. Best of all, they can easily help you with this.
Candy Coated Pretzels
Nothing beats the combination of salty and sweet, and these tasty pretzels would be a great treat to serve along your Easter snacks and appetizers or even desserts!
No-Bake Chocolaty Peanut Butter Treats
These are my oldest kiddo’s favorite treats, and they taste just like Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs! Well actually, they taste even better!
Spring Marshmallow Krispie Treats
These are perfect treats to make for the kids, and the adults really love them too! If you’re hosting a lot of people, these tasty treats would be a great addition to a dessert station.
Strawberry Ice Cream Pie
When the weather warms up, ice cream pies make perfect desserts. Plus, you can easily make them in advance, and strawberries are ideal for any spring gathering.
Orange Creamsicle Cake
Peeps just scream Easter, and they can make the most ordinary dessert look extra special. If you love Creamsicles as much as we do, you’ll love this easy Orange Creamsicle Cake!
If you’re still putting together your Easter menu, I hope these Easy Easter Menu Ideas offer a little bit of inspiration. Let me know what you plan to serve or what’s on the menu that day!
