20 of Our Best Easter Dinner Ideas

If you’re looking for some Easter dinner recipe inspiration, you’re in luck—we have lip-smacking ideas for the main course that are sure to satisfy. One of the most popular things to cook for Easter is lamb. From a crown rack of lamb that will feed a large family or individual lamb loins if you’re keeping your celebration on the smaller side, our recipes are just right for this joyful holiday. Try our recipe for Lamb Ghouzi, pictured here. Lamb shoulder is seasoned with a combination of saffron, ginger, garlic, cardamom, and cloves for warm, spiced flavor. Complete the meal with generous servings of basmati rice, roasted potatoes, and a citrus arugula salad.

If a spectacular roast turkey is more your style, keep it simple by roasting the bird with lemon and herbs, or pack a punch with a sweet and sharp glaze made from ingredients such as maple syrup, mustard, or fruit marmalade.

Of course, one of the best things about Easter falling during the spring is the abundance of seasonal vegetables—peas and asparagus, in particular, are at their peak and we can’t think of two produce items more befitting of Easter dinner. From pairing peas with saffron risotto and shrimp, to other unique flavors, you’ll love our delicious ways to prepare them. We can’t forget about the Easter bunny, so we made sure to include several carrot recipes guaranteed to please, including risotto made with carrot juice and plenty of other in-season dishes that are simple, but spectacular.
