In an effort to make it easier on all of us, I pulled together a list of some of my favorites to help inspire your meal! Below, you’ll find some of my favorite appetizers, side dishes, entrees, cocktails, breads and desserts from this blog and others.

Any combination of these dishes could be used for an Easter feast, and they’re guaranteed to leave your guests with full bellies. (Currently, I’m daydreaming about all the combinations I could put together for Sunday. And lemme tell you, it’s gonna be DELISH.)

 

A few Easter Entertaining Must-Haves

Since I’m a lover of all-things-gold, here is a list of a few fun, festive items to jazz up your Easter table. 

Easter Appetizers

Have a ton of leftover hardboiled eggs from your Easter table? This take on deviled eggs is for you! Instead of making the Southern classic, turn these leftovers into Deviled Egg Bruschetta instead, making a creamy and delicious appetizer that calls for NO mayonnaise.
