Food Blogger Recipes for Easter Dinner
Deviled eggs are a quintessential appetizer. They’re easy to make in large batches if you’re entertaining the entire family and then some. We love the idea of serving this classic app with a spicy kick. Aubrey, the blogger behind Real Housemoms, added bacon and jalapeño to her deviled eggs. It’s an easy addition that is sure to make an impression on your guests!
This savory appetizer also comes to us from Real Housemoms. If you’re looking for a heartier start to your Easter feast, Aubrey offers a chicken meatball recipe that gets its kick from a honey glaze and a buffalo dipping sauce. Adjust the spices to your liking, but don’t miss out on this addictive appetizer. This is definitely a fun way to kick off Easter dinner!
If you’re looking for easy finger food, look no further than these cream puffs. Jeni, of Jeni Eats, put a fun twist on a normally sweet treat by filling cream puffs with egg salad. Just reduce the amount of sugar you use to make the pastry so you don’t have too much sweet competing with savory egg salad. Voila!
If you are looking to do something a little different from the traditional Easter ham, why not try a pork tenderloin? Sharon, of Grits and Pinecones, has an easy recipe that can even be started the day before. Marinate the tenderloin overnight and simply put it in the oven on Easter morning! The simple mustard sauce will add zing and color.
Just reading the recipe for this beef tenderloin will make your mouth water. Erin, of The Speckled Palate, crafted a truly sumptuous Mediterranean-inspired herb crust for her beef tenderloin. Serving this at Easter dinner will result in more than one guest asking you for the recipe.
If you truly want to do something different for Easter, why not serve up some fried chicken? This recipe also comes from Erin at The Speckled Palate. She put a Southern twist on this homestyle dish by marinating the chicken in a sweet tea brine for 24 hours before breading it and baking it in the oven. Have a little fun with your menu!
Sharon, of Grits and Pinecones, doesn’t just have a zesty pork tenderloin recipe! Her recipe for cheesy broccoli casserole has us craving this comfort food. It would be the perfect addition to an Easter menu- it is still a vegetable, even with all the cheese!
This vegetable salad from Kristin, of Yellow Bliss Road, is refreshing and super easy to toss together. The zesty lemon finish will add a bright, citrus flair to your Easter menu.
What’s Easter dinner without rolls? You might have to make a few pans of these because they will definitely go fast. Kristin, of Yellow Bliss Road, put together a simple recipe for rolls with savory spices and yummy cheese that will enhance your Easter menu. Yeah, definitely make more than one pan.
Ready to win awards for hosting the best Easter ever? Just serve these strawberry pudding cups for dessert and watch jaws drop. Kristyn, of Lil Luna, put together these adorable individual desserts. Each cup includes a chocolate-covered strawberry decorated to look like a carrot. Each is nestled in a pudding and Oreo confection to make it look like you’re eating carrots right out of the ground. Trust us, you’ll want to make these.
Let’s keep the carrot theme going with another sweet recipe from Kristyn of Lil Luna. Hey, it’s Easter! Everything you need to make this moist confection is probably already in your pantry or fridge. Let’s be honest, we’re all here for the cream cheese frosting (which is also homemade in this recipe!).
If your guests demand a decadent chocolate treat to top off Easter dinner, who are we to deny them? Kristyn, of Lil Luna, has plenty of dessert recipes to choose from. These three-layer brownies put a salty twist on your favorite treat by stacking brownie, peanut butter fudge and chocolate icing. Better save room for these!
