Sorry it took my so long to post this but I was just checking this thread to get some final menu plans today.

Ham with a brown sugar and mustard sauce; scalloped potatoes, green bean casserole( neither my husband and I like asparagus all that well and I am allergic to green peas-the traditional spring veggies); cole slaw ; deviled eggs, dinner rolls and some kind of dessert ( our guests are making that) . For drinks we plan to have soda pop, beer and white Russians. We do have a little wine for anyone who wants it.

Probably having the traditional spiral sliced ham with brown sugar/mustard glaze, rutabega , potatoes au gratin, dinner rolls, broccoli/cauliflower, and maybe some deviled eggs or potato salad. And lots of chocolate bunnies...and not the cheap hollowed out kind lol.

Default Inexpensive Easter Meal

Can't afford the over-the-top Easter meal this year and it is only me and two kids. I was thinking about a special Easter Breakfast. But no limits-

Let's have your menu for a modest Easter Meal.

If you are into the traditional ham for easter, check out the hams at aldi. also, jewel is running a great coupon. for your small dinner, you could do ham, au gratin potatoes, salad, jello. You should be able to get a ham less than $10 at aldi. a box of au gratin pototoes is 89 cents. aldi has the bags of salad on sale for only 49 cents this week. jello is less than a buck. the mini carrots are only 49 cents too. plus, you will have some leftovers! you can always pick up a dozen eggs and cut up the leftover ham into mini chunks and scramble it together!

I don't know if your kids would like this, but mine used to like creamed eggs. Have the kids color the Easter eggs the day before. Then on Sunday, use them to make creamed eggs on English muffins or biscuits. Buy an inexpensive ham slice to serve with it (you can cube it and put it into the creamed eggs or serve it on the side), and also some pineapple chunks or other fruit.

Assuming you have the basic eggs, milk and spices, then stuffed french toast would be nice. A loaf of french bread you can slice thick for a pocket, cream cheese and a bag of frozen berries is all you'll need. Mix the cheese with some berries, warm the rest of the berries for a sauce. A simple sweetened and spiced milk and egg custard for the toast. Dust with powdered sugar. That's around $5-6. You can also do Eggs Benedict. Tell them it's the original egg McMuffin. There are make-ahead blender recipes for the Hollandaise sauce using common ingredients; you buy some Canadian bacon or a ham slice, divided; and a package of English muffins. You can google a poaching method in the microwave, in a glass of water, for the poached eggs. Asparagus on the side would be nice, and asparagus microwaves nicely too. Navel oranges are not too expensive for fresh squeezed juice.

I'd calculate all at around $20.

I switched from ham to prime rib, due to an irresistable sale, so then I had to readjust from the ham menu I had.
Roast beef
Yorkshire pudding
cheese hashbrown casserole
asparagus gruyere tart
gingerale salad
baby carrots
