This Easter dinner menu is very sumptuous and elegant. A leg of lamb is boned then butterflied by your butcher, so it cooks perfectly in very little time. The rich meat is traditionally served with a mint sauce or mint jelly to help cut its unctuous richness. And simple side dishes keep the lamb the star of the menu.
Make sure to set your table beautifully with your best china and lots of crystal and silver. Or keep the setting colorful with earthenware pottery and colored glasses. A basket of Easter eggs colored by the kids makes a festive and simple centerpiece.
Roasted Leg of Lamb Easter Dinner Menu
Roasted Butterflied Leg of Lamb
When leg is lamb is properly roasted, it's delicious, juicy, and tender. Serve it with some purchased mint jelly to help cut the rich flavor.
Make this casserole ahead of time and reheat it just before serving. The creamy potatoes are delicious.
Lemon Mint Couscous
Couscous is one of the easiest grains to cook. And when it's flavored with lemon and mint, it makes a delicious side dish for your lamb.
Strawberry Asparagus Salad
This gorgeous salad, with sweet strawberries and tender asparagus, is the perfect spring side dish.
Another yeast batter bread recipe! I love these fabulous soft and sweet dinner rolls; and they're so easy to make.
Fluffy Raspberry Dessert
This creamy and smooth frozen dessert is wonderful topped with some whipped cream and mint sprigs.
