Easter dinner is the ultimate of all Sunday dinners. And a feast worth enjoying with family and friends should be a joy to prepare, too. So until the Easter bunny decides to leave complete meals in your basket, these easy versions of classic Easter recipes are the next best thing.
It’s the most popular salad in the universe, and now it’s the best thing to happen to deviled eggs since the chicken. A quick DIY Caesar dressing puts a new twist on this go-to appetizer, which we serve up on a bed of—what else—romaine lettuce.
This tart looks fancy as all get out, and if anyone asks, we’ll back you up on that. But lucky for you, it’s actually incredibly easy and completely ready in just 35 minutes.
Pillowy golden-brown scratch popovers get a little something extra in the form of savory bacon and cheese. Please and thank you.
When you’re prepping a holiday dinner, oven space is valuable real estate. Conserve that precious resource with this easy slow-cooker version of classic spiral ham. The slow cooker keeps it warm and prevents it from drying out.
We’re bringing hasselback (sorry, not sorry) with this sheet-pan version of a complete Easter dinner. The melted cheese in every slice is our little gift to you.
Minimal effort and cleanup, with maximum adulting cred: all hail the foolproof simplicity of this beautiful roast chicken. Because sometimes you want a non-ham option for Easter dinner.
What Easter menu would be complete without some asparagus (aka the unofficial vegetable of spring)? Show this seasonal favorite the respect it deserves by wrapping it up in bacon.
These are not your average scalloped potatoes. The deep, rich flavor of savory caramelized onions makes this the most decadent, flavorful version you’ll ever have.
Even the French can’t resist the pull of a good potato salad. This easy take on French-style potato salad features pretty tri-color potatoes and an olive oil and herb dressing so light and flavorful, you won’t even miss the mayo.
The Midwesterners are on to something: no holiday table is complete until the cheesy potatoes are served. This restaurant copycat is one of the most popular recipes we’ve ever posted at Tablespoon, and once you have a bite we think you’ll see why.
First things first: we left out the pineapple and raisins (debate amongst yourselves). This is, hands down, the easiest carrot cake you’ll ever make. We took a couple shortcuts with the cake, and went all-in on an incredible, easy and incredibly easy homemade cream cheese frosting.
We’ll have to double-check this, but we heard somewhere that it’s not officially Easter until the lemon bars show up. With a sugar cookie crust and creamy cheesecake filling, these are the ones you’ll want on your table this year.
Is pineapple upside-down cake the OG cake-mix hack? Ponder that while you enjoy the moist cake, sweet pineapple and gooey brown-sugar topping that’s been gracing American tables for nearly 100 years.
Champagne. Juice. Done. (Don’t overthink it.) If you’re going to serve an adult beverage at your holiday table, this is the only one you need.
These pretty non-alcoholic bellinis are every bit as special as mimosas. Who says you need champagne to have fun?
