Having hard cooked eggs on hand is one of the best parts of Easter. These wonderful little protein-packed packages are delicious, nutritious, and so easy to use in wonderful recipes. Try my Hard Cooked Eggs Benedict, Deviled Eggs, and Bacon Deviled Egg Potato Salad. Yum.

Now that Easter is over, you have some wonderful foods in the fridge to make recipes for the rest of the week. Think of ham, hard cooked eggs, potatoes, and veggies are the perfect ingredients for these Easter leftover recipes. Ham and Scalloped Potatoes is my personal favorite this year, but I also love Ham Filo Roll, Ham Stuffed Manicotti, and Wild Rice Chowder. Yum.

Classic Easter Dinner Menu

Saturday April 19, 2014
One of the best menus I have ever served for Easter is this one, which combines classic recipes with some convenience foods. A bone-in ham has far more flavor and better texture than a boneless piece of meat, and when glazed with a zipped-up raspberry preserves mixture, is wonderful. Scalloped potatoes are easy and delicious when made with prepared refrigerated potatoes, Alfredo sauce, cheese, and cream. Add some tasty side dishes and a simple but rich make-ahead dessert for a fabulous dinner.
