I really enjoyed putting together this collection of Easter dinner recipes for a traditional Easter dinner. If you're not quite sure what to make for Easter dinner, I've got ya covered with over 50 recipes.

Our traditional favorite is a good spiral cut ham in the oven, along with mashed potatoes, ham gravy, the most delicious corn casserole (with bacon), green beans with hamburger and onion, and of course, Grandma's bread rolls.

WHAT IS A TRADITIONAL EASTER DINNER?

We've always thought of ham as being associated with Easter because it's what we've always had, even growing up. However, traditional Easter dinner ideas include so much more.

  • Ham
  • Rack of lamb
  • Leg of lamb
  • Lamb shanks
  • Roasted chicken
  • Roast beef
  • Pork roast
  • Salmon

Yup, even roast beef, pork roast, and salmon can be part of a traditional Easter feast. I guess it just depends what your family loves to eat and what traditions have been passed down through the generations.

HOW TO HOST EASTER DINNER

My friend Linda, who blogs over at Life on Summerhill, has so many wonderful ideas for hosting and home decor. Beautiful ideas she gives for Easter tablescapes inspire much creativity when it comes to setting the table for family and friends.

Not to mention all of her wonderful ideas for putting up Easter home decorations, as well. From the centerpiece to festive garland ideas and table settings, you're sure to find loads of ideas for your own Easter celebration.

Whew! I don't know 'bout you, but I'm ready for all the Easter food! And if it's desserts you're looking for, stay tuned, as I'll be sharing a very scrumptious collection of Easter desserts very, very soon.
