Here are 10 Delicious Easter Dinner Ideas:

1. Honey-Baked Ham with Pineapple

This is a classic ham recipe that is perfect for any Easter dinner. The pineapple and lemon juice sauce gives it a subtle citrusy taste that really makes it stand out from the other ham recipes out there.

2. Easy Baked Salmon

Salmon is quickly becoming a popular choice in many household during the holidays. It’s a healthy alternative to turkey or ham and it’s incredibly easy to make. This no-fail recipe is a great option for first-time hosts or those of you looking to cut back on the calories this Easter.

3. Stuffed Turkey Roll

Planning a small Easter dinner for just a few people but want to make something different? This unique stuffed turkey breast has some special flavors. It’s got a cranberry, apricot, pistachio stuffing. It’s a great seasonal dish to make if you’re only feeding 2-3 people.

4. Roast Pork with Crackling

Pork with crackling isn’t an easy dish to make but, when it turns out well, it’s absolutely delicious! Here is a pretty fool-proof recipe for this mouth-watering dish. If it’s your first time preparing a big feast for your family, you might want to opt for an easier recipe (like classic turkey or ham).

5. Classic Roast Turkey

This is your classic turkey recipe that’s perfect for any holiday and any size family. It serves about 6 but if you’re looking to make dinner for a larger crowd you can buy a larger turkey and adjust the cooking time accordingly. You really can’t go wrong with turkey for a holiday dinner.

6. Roast Chicken

This is a hot roast method. Pump up the temperature on your oven and then start. The other way is to cook for longer in a colder oven. Both are good, but this method tends to give a juicier result.

7. Cranberry Glazed Duck Breast

This sweet/sour duck combination is beautiful. It makes a really impressive special occasion dish but it’s actually easy to make. If you’re looking for something different but equally as easy as a traditional Easter dish, this may be the perfect recipe for you.

8. Honey Ham

This is our classic holiday ham. We buy spiral cut hams and they come with a package of glaze, but it doesn’t go far. So this is how we make our own. This incredibly easy recipe will make your guests think you spent hours slaving away in the kitchen.

9. Roast Turkey Breast

This recipe, which serves 8 people, is a wonderful holiday entree for a big family. The spiced cherry sauce makes this recipe a little more unique compared to some of the other recipes available for Easter dinner. The best part? It’s really easy!
