What should I serve on Easter Sunday?
I often find myself asking, “what should I bring to Easter dinner?”. Every year I like to make traditional Easter recipes like ham and roast beef, and sometimes I’ll even cook up some grilled lamb chops. But I’ll tell you a secret… the side dishes are what I look forward to the most!
For my family, the perfect Easter dinner recipes include…
- A main course everyone will love – I like to serve ham and roast beef
- Scalloped potatoes or mashed potatoes – potatoes are a must!
- Vegetables like carrots, green beans, and brussels sprouts; my family also likes sweet potatoes
- Casseroles make easy side dishes for ham – I always serve one or two!
- Something sweet for dessert, of course!
What goes with ham dinner?
The best side dishes for ham are cheesy potatoes and roasted vegetables. I love serving ham with carrots, green beans, and potatoes au gratin. They make the most delicious Easter recipes!
