Easter dinner ideas

Easter is coming up! It's a great holiday to have a family dinner. Whether you're doing a casual potluck or a fancy family dinner, I have some delicious ideas for you!

Shrimp Deviled Eggs

You have to start the meal off right with these shrimp deviled eggs! They make the perfect appetizer for Easter dinner and are so good. 

Burrata Caprese Salad

This is a simple and elegant salad bursting with flavor. Creamy burrata adds a little twist on traditional caprese salad. 

Short Rib Ragu

This slow cooked beef ragu is rich and savory, perfect for a special occasion! The recipe is easy to double to make a big batch. After searing, the oven does most of the work!

Crab Stuffed Slamon

A fun and fancy seafood dish to serve. Tender salmon filets are stuffed with crab meat, cheese, and breadcrumbs for a delicious salmon dinner. Ready in under an hour. 

Roasted Turkey

Roasting a turkey is a great way to feed a crowd. This roasted turkey recipe comes out juicy every time. There's a savory gravy to go on top. 

Braised Short Ribs with Risotto

This dish always feels so special. Tender braised short ribs and mushrooms over parmesan risotto. Sounds fancy, but is easy to make with my step by step instructions. It's an impressive Easter dinner!

Corn and Shrimp Bisque

Another really impressive dish that will make your guests feel like they are at a New Orleans restaurant. This soup is creamy, decadent, and so delicious. 

Garlic Mashed Potatoes

I feel like no matter what your main course is, mashed potatoes make the perfect side dish! These have lots of garlic, butter, and cream cheese for the best flavor and texture. 

Crispy Prosciutto Salad

This side salad is special enough to be the main course. It has marinated tomatoes, crispy prosciutto, creamy goat cheese and a homemade vinaigrette. 

Smothered Green Beans

Green beans made even more delicious with bacon, ham, and cajun spices. These green beans are melt-in-your-mouth good and make a great side for Easter dinner.
