Easter Recipes – From Brunch to Dinner
Can you believe we’re already approaching another holiday?! Happy (almost) Easter!!
Whether you are Christian or not, Easter always feels like such a happy holiday to me. The church services are always a little bit more joyful than normal, little kids get excited about hunting for eggs in cute little outfits, and it’s an excuse for families to come together. So, if you’re hosting Easter, or you’re in charge of bringing a dish to the party – this post is for you!
Ditch the syrup on Sunday and whip up this light lemon yogurt glaze instead. These pancakes can also very easily be made gluten free!
Making a bunch of fried eggs and bacon for a group can be daunting… plus, it’s likely you’ll have at least a few oil splatters on your shirt when you’re done, if you’re anything like me! The strata ensures everyone gets their eggs – and bread, kale, caramelized onions, cheese and prosciutto, too 🙂
In charge of bringing something to your in laws? Hint: everyone likes banana bread. I mean, everyone.
I usually make these around Christmas time, but they totally work for Easter, too. I’m always on board for sweet snacks that aren’t processed candy!
I know most people make lamb on Easter, but I don’t ever cook it or eat it… and then I remembered that I filmed this lamb kabob video with Learn To Cook last year! I personally think you could follow the exact same recipe with chicken if you don’t eat red meat like me 🙂
Easter seems like the perfect time to serve up hot pink hummus, right?! Even little kids might want to get in on this candy colored action.
My personal favorite side dish is also ridiculously simple. I like to get the super skinny stalks because they roast really quickly. I also love to throw them in a pesto dish as a main course!
Just like the strata, this is an easier way to make sure all of your guests get some eggs – without making each dish to order. I also love serving this as lunch with a big salad!
This is kind of an old recipe now (not the pretties pictures – woops!), but it’s such a favorite of mine. It’s an easy, hearty dinner that everyone loves on a weeknight or a holiday.
Bright, fresh and pairs well with almost any entree? Pin this one, for sure!
This stuff is straight up magic, and SO much healthier than any of the chocolate bunnies in Easter baskets. Stay away from that and make this fudge instead!

Amazing mouthwatering recipes! I loved the look of the String bean salad. It looks so fresh! I got quite a handful of ideas of dishes I could prepare on the next Easter! This year I had made macadamia nuts australia and maple tartlets and my kids and husband absolutely loved them. I would probably try all these dishes throughout the year because each of these look so good and so delicious! Thanks for sharing these wonderful recipes!
