Let’s talk Easter menu recipes! I’m so excited to host Easter this year. With our home finally coming together, it’s the best time to gather together and celebrate with a big Easter meal.

My menu isn’t 100% decided yet, but there will definitely be glazed ham and green bean casserole, my husband’s favorite. A tray of homemade biscuits, my mother-in-law’s scalloped potatoes and hot cross buns, and a bright colorful salad will round out the meal. Dessert will be pineapple upside down cake and carrot cake.

Breakfast will be low-key– I’m thinking easy cinnamon rolls and fruit salad for snacking as everyone wakes up.

Since I’ve been gathering Easter recipes all week, I figured I’d share them with you too. Below you’ll find everything from egg dishes for breakfast, cinnamon rolls + scones, desserts, homemade candy, supper, and side dishes. This list should cover everything we need for our Easter Sunday!

    That Easter Nest Cake is amazing! And I’m so up for trying that Fruit Pizza – I saw the video for it the other day on Instagram. It looks so easy to make 🙂

    How about my Creme Egg Cheesecake? It would make the perfect showstopper dessert for an Easter feast – ://whatcharlottebaked.com/2017/03/25/creme-egg-cheesecake-no-bake/

    Although, Pineapple Upside Down cake is always a great idea too!

    1. creme egg cheesecake sounds fantastic too!

  2. Jenny from jennyisbaking.com says:

    Wow, what a compilation! I am sure everybody has the chance to find the perfect combination.

    I have gotten into meringue recently. I piped some nests made of meringue and filled them with Easter chocolate eggs. An alternative would be strawberries and cream, see here: https://jennyisbaking.com/2017/04/05/quick-easter-nests/
    Another idea is to make to meringue circles and then put some of your delicious lemon curd in between.
    In Germany eggnogg (well similar) is common for Easter. I was thinking of trying this eggnogg layer cake recipe: http://baketotheroots.de/kleine-eierlikortorte/ (it’s in English)

    1. meringue nests are an excellent idea too!

  3. Tori//Gringalicious.com says:

    Oh yes, yes, yes! These are all such great ideas. I totally want to make those adorable chicky eggs, oh and the walnut crusted chicken yum! I pretty much just wanna try it all. Thanks, Sally!

  4. Patricia @Sweet and Strong says:

    I always wish we had family nearby so I could host a big holiday dinner or brunch.  But my sister will be visiting so it will be her, my husband, and I to cook for.  My mom always made cheesy potatoes on easter which I loved.  I also had my first piece of king cake a few years ago, that was amazing!  

  5. Thanks for the amazing compilation!  I can’t wait to find something fun to make for Easter!  Thank you for posting!

  6. Sara @ Last Night's Feast says:

    Wow this is a great list! There is so much inspiration here =)

  7. It is wonderful list Sally!

  8. So, so, so yum! I can’t wait to try out some of these recipes! Especially saltine toffee, Easter bunny bark and the nest cakes! 😀

  9. I actually made my second batch of your easy from scratch cinnamon rolls today, trying to get better with yeast. I think this is way off topic but I just wanted to tell you! Not hosting Easter but I have a feeling more people will want me to make these for any gatherings in future. They truly are easy and they’re the best cinnamon rolls I’ve ever had!! Now back to perusing this list. It’s making my stomach growl!!

    1. glad you’re getting comfy with yeast! I absolutely swear by those easy cinnamon rolls. My favorite and very approachable if you’re new with yeast!

  10. Holy moly – I am not hosting Easter but I could certainly agree to share some of these with my peeps. What a fantastic list! Thank you Sally. It will be nice to show off your new house, won’t it?!

    1. Yes, we’re both so excited for that!

  11. Kelly @ Kelly Lynns Sweets and Treats says:

    What an awesome round up of recipes!!! I want to make them all! Xoxo 🙂

  12. Kelly @ Kelly Lynns Sweets and Treats says:

    Oh and I’ll be making these: 
    Soooooo easy and everyone always loves them. Plus Cadbury Mini Eggs are in them! Can’t go wrong with that! 😉

  13. Hi Sally, It is wonderful list! I will add just just one thing – Easter eggs. Please check link below – how to naturally dye eggs using onion skin.http://www.5starcookies.com/2017/04/08/onion-skin-naturally-dye-eggs/

  14. Laura | Tutti Dolci says:

    This is the best round up! Can’t wait to try your raspberry scones and flaky biscuits, and those roasted carrots look fab too!

  15. Our new family favorite ham recipe is going to sound odd but it is truly delicious and make ahead! Mel’s Kitchen Cafe Brown Sugar Baked Ham. Its like pulled ham and so good; its worth the vinegar smell the day before. Plus it uses the “cheap” shank cut so it is very inexpensive. https://www.melskitchencafe.com/sweet-baked-ham-the-most-unique-and-delicious-ham-ive-ever-had/
    Truly worth a try

    Sally, this is an amazing round up!! The big Easter meal has usually been at my Mom’s also so I’ve never hosted it either. I’m sure your dinner will be amazing. Happy Easter!! 🙂
