My Easter Dinner Menu + Other Easter Favorites

I usually dilly-dally around finalizing the specifics of a holiday menu for the simple reason that I have a hard time deciding what to serve when there’s so many incredible recipes to choose from and am often debilitated by the thought that I’ll get to the big day and realize I chose the wrong thing to [...]

I usually dilly-dally around finalizing the specifics of a holiday menu for the simple reason that I have a hard time deciding what to serve when there’s so many incredible recipes to choose from and am often debilitated by the thought that I’ll get to the big day and realize I chose the wrong thing to make (I feel this same way when ordering at a restaurant). This line of thought sometimes keeps me awake at night. I realize I have issues.
However, this year, I’ve surprised myself with my very solid Easter dinner plan. I’m not sure why it was so easy to figure out this year. Let’s just pretend I finally learned how to be decisive and effective with my time! A new me (I hardly recognize myself). We don’t mess around with lunch or brunch on Easter (usually we are at church during that time anyway) – it’s all about breakfast and dinner and of course, dessert. Here’s what we’ll be eating. I can hardly wait.
Breakfast

Overnight cinnamon and sugar sweet rolls.

Ok, I’m kind of lying. Or rather, withholding information. Later this week, I’m posting a variation on these overnight rolls that totally rocked our world and that’s what will be happening Easter morning. Stay tuned. Dinner

Sweet Baked Ham

I’m showing you an InstantPot version of this ham on Thursday and it’s life-changing; it’s always a toss up between this sweet baked ham and my go-to slow cooker brown sugar and maple ham but I’m feeling like the sweet baked ham this year.
Cheesy Au Gratin Potatoes

Besides being incredibly tasty, the main perk of these potatoes, in my book, is that they can be made ahead of time.
Roasted Asparagus

With a drizzle of lemon juice and freshly grated Parmesan cheese, of course.
Spinach Salad with Sweet-Spicy Nuts, Apples, Feta and Bacon

I know that salad is often mocked at holiday dinners but I’m a salad fan through and through and look forward to this one on the table.
Raspberry Ribbon Salad

This is a bit Christmas-esque but I feel like serving it, and so…I am.
Lion House Rolls

Gotta go with a classic this year even though there are about a hundred other rolls I adore – and actually, I have another fabulous roll recipe coming at you Friday if you want a delicious change.
Dessert

Lemon Blueberry Cake with Whipped Lemon Cream Frosting

Because this is just screaming Easter dessert, don’t you think"
Carrot Cake

This is one of my favorite cakes of all-time even though I’m nearly sure I’ve tried every version of carrot cake out there; I just can’t do this holiday without carrot cake.
