When we think about Easter, we think about spending time with family gathered around the table laughing, talking and sharing delicious food. That’s why we’ve put together a collection of our best Easter lunch ideas — divided into starters, sides, mains and, of course, Easter desserts — to make it easy for all of you to put together your lip-smacking Easter meals.
Easter lunch ideas: starters and nibbles
Starters can be a life-saver when that main meal runs a bit late. They stop guests from getting hangry (that’s hungry and angry) and they make you look like you’ve been slaving away in the kitchen all day transforming ordinary ingredients into Easter masterpieces. But actually you just used our clever, easy Easter starter recipes! Genius.
Easter lunch ideas: showstopping sides
We love side dishes! Potatoes, vegetables, gravy and even salad are among our favourite Easter food, so we’re most excited about this section of our Easter lunch ideas feature.
Easter lunch ideas: the main event
Of course, no Easter lunch would be complete without some kind of roasted or baked main dish. And don’t worry, we’ve also included some vegetarian dishes so that no one feels left out during Easter lunch.
Easter lunch ideas: delicious desserts
At last, the part we’ve all been waiting for! No Easter menu is complete without one or two (or three or four) Easter desserts. From chocolately treats to egg-inspired creations, the most difficult part of throwing your Easter feast will be deciding which of these Easter desserts to make.
We’ve even got Easter dessert recipes that use up any leftover hot cross buns you have lying around — waste not, want not!
