Easter Recipes and Menu

Easter is a very special holiday for many of us that is celebrated with family gatherings and good food. The menu usually includes ham or lamb, fresh produce and other foods available in early spring, depending on the culture and the region. My Pennsylvania Dutch family's traditional Easter dinner menu, listed below, always featured baked ham, potatoes and spring vegetables or, when Easter was too early for the harvest, vegetables that were home-canned during the previous season. A family favorite springtime dish, my grandmother's rhubarb pie, was the dessert served most often. In addition to the menu, I posted recipes for lamb, vegetables, eggs, desserts and other sweets to offer alternate choices so that you can design a menu based on personal tastes and your family's Easter traditions. There is also a link to recipes using spring produce, which includes dishes not listed on this page, as well as links to recipes for using leftover ham or lamb. Each recipe includes links to similar choices. If you still do not find what you are looking for, you can use the search box above or browse the Recipe Files for many more ideas. I hope you enjoy and....Happy Easter!
