Maybe you are planning on having a large breakfast for the family on Easter Sunday.
Or, like me, you are planning on eating Easter brunch.
I think most people, however, will be preparing and serving a lunch for the Sunday holiday. Whatever the case may be, if you are completely clueless on what to make, have no fear! I’ve gathered up all of my favorite Easter and springtime recipes so you can easily plan your menu.
I’ve got you covered from breakfast, to brunch, side dishes, mains and dessert. Happy meal planning!
This is probably the most stress-free holiday recipe you could make. Just prepare the dish the night before, and pop in the oven on Sunday morning!
This sweet biscuit recipe is easy to make and kids will love it. Stuff the biscuits with jam and then bake, instead of jam/jelly getting all over the place when serving!
The Easter brunch I’ll be going to will be serving a few spring salads, so why not serve a delicious one at YOUR Easter brunch? This salad is sure to please just about everybody at the table.
My favorite chicken salad sandwich, fancied up a notch by being served on ciabatta bread.
A flatbread recipe fit for a king (or queen). Your vegetarian friends will thank you!
You can’t have a breakfast or brunch without muffins! These are more fall themed, but they are delicious year-round.
The best part of this recipe (other than the incredible taste)? The recipe list is only five ingredients long.
Kid-friendly finger food that ensures they eat their vegetables. They taste just plain-ole good.
You’ve got to have a dip when you have a get-together! This one is spicy, creamy, and best of all? BACON. Need I say more?
Start off your Easter meal with this hearty soup. Plus, ham is the real star for Easter meals and it is featured here!
Au gratin potatoes are an Easter staple, and these have an extremely cheesy twist: Hasselback style!
Asparagus is the vegetable of the season. Celebrate its existence by smearing cream cheese on it and wrapping it in bacon. That’s the correct way to eat it, right?
Regular potato salad? Nah. You’re more fancy than that. Slather some roasted red potatoes with buffalo sauce and crumble blue cheese.
Speaking of being fancy…your guests will be impressed with this fresh and different pasta salad. It’s not even difficult to make!
I don’t make many bread-type things, but when I do, it’s always delicious.
Seeing a theme here? I might have a slight obsession with bacon…
Fire up the grill! Who says that Memorial Day is the official start of grilling season? This grilled chicken is a fiesta in your mouth.
A simple main dish if you’re having a small gathering.
You’re probably sick of fish by now, but trust me when I say this main dish is well worth making.
You didn’t expect me to NOT include a casserole, did you? This one is perfect for the springtime holiday.
One pot main dish? Check. Spring flavors? Check. Full bellies? Super check.
For the vegetarian you may have at lunch. Oops, there’s prosciutto in this. My bad.
Can’t celebrate Easter without a lemon treat! Lemon + cheesecake = AMAZING.
…and don’t forget the limes. Limes need love too. Lemon, lime and cherry is a pretty wonderful combination.
I love bundt cakes. Everyone will too with this sweet, lovely pear & honey bundt.
My all-time favorite cake recipe. So easy, so delicious, so much whipped cream.
Like ambrosia, but Italian. Great as a dessert OR a side dish.
And there you have it! Happy cooking, and happy Easter!
