Welcome back to Southern Plate’s Meal Plan Sunday!
For this week’s Meal Plan Sunday, we’re bringing you a long list of Easter menu ideas. This post has recipes for side dishes, dinner rolls, main courses, desserts, and beverages! Some of these can be made in advance, so you can spend less time in the kitchen and more time with your family, which is what we all want, right?
From The Southern Plate family to yours, we hope you have a wonderful Easter and enjoy a delicious Easter feast!
To have a proper Easter celebration, you gotta have deviled eggs on the table! They’re a tradition around here for good reason. The creamy yolk filling mixed with mustard and mayo is just right, and they look cute garnished with paprika or bacon bits. If you want to make sure your Easter feast is top-notch, whip up a batch of these devilishly delicious eggs.
No list of Easter menu ideas is complete without mashed potatoes. These homemade mashed potatoes with evaporated milk simply melt in your mouth. For something different, opt for a serving of mashed sweet potato instead.
Creamy, cheesy comfort food. What more could you want? This is also a great option for Easter brunch. You can assemble this the day before your Easter meal. Bake the casserole in the oven.
I love this stuff, my Daddy loves this stuff, my Mama loves this stuff, and my Grandmama loves this stuff. I call it a taste and texture explosion, as it’s simultaneously creamy, crunchy, sweet, and savory. You don’t want to miss adding this to your Easter menu.
This recipe for baked ham features the easiest 3-ingredient brown sugar glaze. No Easter celebration is complete without a baked ham! The sweet and savory flavors of the glaze, mixed with the succulent and tender meat, make for a mouthwatering centerpiece for any table. And the aroma that fills the house while it’s baking is enough to make your mouth water!
One of the most popular Easter recipes, instead of a traditional carrot cake, why not try these delicious carrot cake blondies? They can be made and stored in the fridge up to 3 days in advance.
