Our 7 Most Popular Easter Dinners
Looking for top-rated Easter dinner menu ideas? We've paired our most popular Easter main dish recipes with top-rated side dish recipes that complement them perfectly. These are the traditional Easter dinner menus our home cooks turn to when they're planning their special Easter feasts.
1. Easter Ham Dinner Menu
Featuring Glazed Ham with Scalloped Potatoes and Green Beans.
This crowd favorite rivals that expensive spiral-cut ham (you know the one). Be sure to line your roasting pan with foil for easier clean-up because you're going to baste very generously with the delectable glaze. Of course, a ham Easter dinner menu is only half-way there without scalloped potatoes on the side.
2. Lamb Easter Dinner Menu I
Featuring Roasted Rack of Lamb with Mashed Potatoes and Baked Asparagus.
This impressive looking roast is actually easier to make than it looks. For easier carving, ask your butcher to remove the chine bone so you can slice between the ribs to make chops for serving.
3. Lamb Easter Dinner Menu II
Featuring Roast Leg of Lamb with Roasted Carrots and New Potatoes.
It really could not be easier to make this gorgeous, flavorful roast. Some reviewers added potatoes to roast right in the pan juices.
4. Prime Rib Easter Dinner Menu
Featuring Prime Rib with "Melting" Potatoes and Roasted Brussels Sprouts.
Be sure to use a meat thermometer to get an accurate temperature reading so your special-occasion roast turns out perfectly cooked.
5. Salmon Easter Dinner Menu
Featuring Baked Salmon Fillets with Sauteed Spinach and Rice Pilaf.
File these fillets under non traditional Easter dinner menu ideas. Topped with seasoned buttery breadcrumbs, this simple baked salmon makes an elegant presentation.
6. Pork Roast Easter Dinner Menu
Featuring Roast Pork Loin with Garlic Cauliflower and Easy Orzo.
The boneless pork loin you'll use for this recipe is a relatively lean cut of meat and will not give off a lot of juice. You'll want to have some wine or broth on hand to deglaze the pan for a simple pan sauce.
7. Lamb Shanks Easter Dinner Menu
Featuring Braised Lamb Shanks with Pear Salad and Saffron Couscous.
Lamb shanks go for a low, slow braise in a deeply flavored broth to make a fork-tender dish that's worth the wait.
