We’ve Got An Easter Menu That Will Wow Your Guests
Life’s too short for a dinner spread you don’t love — and for one that takes forever to make. Fortunately, you don’t have to worry about that. We’ve created — and cooked — a dinner menu for Easter that weaves together all the classics plus some new favorites. The spread is pretty enough to inspire people to take out their phones to grab a photo, delicious enough to earn a hashtag like #besteasterdinnerever and easy enough to assemble so you can focus on entertaining your guests and not checking the oven constantly to see if the ham is finally done. Here’s our menu.
What’s better: an Easter ham at the center of the holiday table or sandwiches made with the leftover ham and dinner rolls the next day? Well, either way, it’s a win.
Spiral-Sliced Ham with Maple-Mustard Glaze
Our pre-cooked, spiral-sliced ham is a crazy simple entertaining shortcut — just reheat and serve. Its glaze blends sharp mustard seeds with caramel-y maple syrup, meaning you get tender slices of sweet and savory ham. (Be sure to stir leftover glaze into mayo for ham sandwiches the next day.) No synthetic nitrates or nitrites and from pigs raised with no antibiotics, ever.
If you want to serve a memorable meal, your side game has to be strong.
Roasted Beets with Sherry Shallot Vinaigrette
Sweet deep purple beets, earthy kale, roasted shallots and a pleasant tangy dressing make this a must at the holiday table. Bonus: This colorful veggie side brightens your table and your Instagram posts.
Asparagus with Lemon, Parsley and Roasted Almonds
Think of this as the perfect springtime dish. Warm it up or eat it at room temperature. It also serves as a great contrast to richer favorites, like…
Potato Gratin with Gruyère
Creamy potato gratin is a classic side and essential partner for Easter ham. Our version takes the flavor up a notch thanks to nutty Gruyère and fragrant nutmeg.
Macaroni and Cheese
Rich. Creamy. Nirvana. We’re not sure exactly how simple ingredients create such magic, but what we do know is that our crowd-pleasing macaroni and cheese will round out any Easter meal.
Don't Forget the Bread
We also recommend adding on our butterflake rolls. Layers of butter make them extra flaky. And rich. And did we say buttery?
Add King of Rabbit Rosé to the table. You'll taste aromas of ripe strawberries and sweet raspberries. It's fresh and juicy on the palate with good balance. Plus, it goes great with dessert, which brings us to...
Easter is inevitably tied to sweets; here’s how to surpass your guests’ expectations.
Galup Colomba di Pasqua
Buttery, pillowy-soft, studded with candied orange peel and baked in the shape of a dove, this traditional Italian Easter cake is considered a cousin of panettone, the Italian Christmas dessert. Pair like a pro with fresh berries, whipped cream, preserves, a drizzle of dark chocolate or a glass of prosecco. Oh, and it comes in a gift-wrapped box. (Psst: easiest host gift ever.)
More Desserts. Fresh berries, delicate layers of vanilla cake and a creamy almond and whipped mascarpone frosting come together for Berry Chantilly Cake. Or, if chocolate is your thing (and we wholeheartedly approve), check out our rich and creamy Chocolate Hazelnut Crunch Cake.
Plan ahead: The ham and sides are packed cold and may need reheating.
