Traditional Easter Dinner

Every year our family gathers together on Easter Sunday to enjoy a traditional ham dinner. We usually serve some kind of potato dish, a salad, and hot homemade rolls. Some families enjoy pork loin, pork chops, or even lamb for Easter dinner. These are all very traditional Easter dinner ideas as well. We know every family is different but we wanted to share with you our very favorite Easter Dinner ideas, including side dishes, salads, and even desserts! As an added bonus, we will also share with you a sample Easter Dinner including recipes!

Easter Potatoes

You can’t serve a ham dinner without a good potato side dish. Typically Easter potatoes are served “casserole-style” in a casserole dish with some kind of sauce and cheese. Some examples of this are funeral potatoes or potatoes au gratin. Our readers have commented saying that they have loved serving our creamy potatoes with peas or our parmesan potato halves with their ham dinners as well. Check them all out and decide for yourself what suits your family best! Any of these Easter dinner ideas will be a winner!
