This is also the most popular item in restaurant's "Holidays Buffet". I can't stand ham as a dish, however smoked/cooked ham as a cold cut, with horseradish is delicious!


I've read that Lamb was not normally available at Easter in colder climate Christian lands. However, it is much more traditionally associated with the Easter feast in Christianity worldwide than pork. To me lamb is to Easter... like turkey is to Thanksgiving.

As we say in my family "It is the lamb of God, not the ham of God".

Having said that I do like ham...just not at Easter.

Lamb was served during the Passover Seder and will be served again after the Third Temple is built.

So far, I already have the ham baked and ready to go. One of my sisters is supposed to bring a quiche and the other one is supposed to bring a casserole of some kind (it's a surprise--I hope it's not an unpleasant one). A friend of my mom and her husband are coming over and she's bringing homemade chocolate cake and lemon bars for dessert.

As far as side dishes, so far rice pilaf and possibly sweet potatoes, but I'm not positive on that yet.

Happy Easter to everyone! Enjoy the day with your families and create those special memories.
OK, everyone--there were a few changes to the Easter brunch menu from the original one I wrote above. Instead of the quiche and casserole, one of my sisters brought homemade eggs Benedict and the other one brought homemade breakfast potatoes made with onions and bacon--yum!

As far as dessert, we still had the lemon bars but instead of chocolate cake, my mom's friend made a red velvet cake instead. Those items were over-the-top delicious!

A very pleasant time was had by all. The weather was perfect, too, which was an added bonus (sunny and 67F).

I often make quiche for Easter. The one I made today was so fabulous, the best yet! Also we had ham, roast asparagus, & potatoes. Strawberries & bananas in (real) whipped cream for dessert.

Ham, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes & gravy & rolls & butter. Wow, could we be any more cliche'? lol Though my 6 & 7 yo's kept thanking us for such a great dinner. lol Maybe I need to get ham for dinner more often.

Default What foods will you be serving on Easter/Passover?

Easter Sunday will be at my house, same as last year. We used to go out for brunch but it was getting expensive and you felt rushed. I am making:
Chicken cordon bleu
Green bean casserole
Tossed salad
Corn in butter sauce
Homemade brioche muffins
Rice pilaf.
My SIL is making scalloped potatoes. For dessert not sure, maybe angel food cake or cheese cake.

Honestly, I've not even thought about it. This year, I've been so busy, I've kind of forgotten about it. Since it will just be me and hubby, we probably won't do much. Maybe I'll just cook some nice filet mignons on the grill. My oven is not working properly these days, and I'm not going to get it repaired because we are planning on remodeling our kitchen, so it would be throwing money away. So that kind of limits what I can prepare. No Easter ham this year.
