Easter is almost here! And if you grew up like me, you earned grocery store points until you could get a free spiral ham and dinner was done. While there’s nothing wrong with a traditional Easter holiday, sometimes you want something different. Here are nine deliciously Unique Easter Dinners for a non-traditional holiday menu that is sure to please.
1. Don’t totally abandon the ham.
Try this amazing boozy, glazed ham – Bourbon Orange Glazed Ham from The Chunky Chef.
2. Spice up your average chicken.
A sweet and Spicy glaze makes this Honey Mustard Roasted Chicken (from yours truly) a contender for unique Easter dinners.
3. Try a new protein.
Unique and One-Pot! Greek Lamb with Lemony Garlic Potatoes from Scrummy Lane.
4. Drown your meat in soup-inspired deliciousness.
This French Onion Soup Roasted Pork Tenderloin from Lydi Out Loud is like combining your favorite appetizer and dinner!
5. Impress them with your fancy self.
Can you get snazzier than this Easy Beef Wellington with Mushroom & Jamón from HappyFoods Tube?
6. Fire up your grill!
Crank up the heat with this elegant, flavorful Cedar Plank Harissa Smoked Salmon from Taste and See.
7. Give everyone their own mini chicken.
Okay, I know cornish hens are not “mini chickens” per se. However, they completely eliminate any debates over who gets the legs. Cornish Hen with Lemon and Caper Sauce from Glebekitchen.
8. Have breakfast for dinner.
Just because it’s dinner time, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy Easter brunch. Swiss Chard with Caramelized Onion Quiche from The Happiness Kitchen is perfect any time of day.
9. Make it all about the sides.
My favorite part of dinner is the side dishes, anyway, so why not a side dish buffet for some unique Easter dinners? Be sure to include this Pesto Scalloped Potatoes and Asparagus from Trails to Table.
These nine unique Easter dinners go well above and beyond the free supermarket ham of yesteryear. No matter what you serve at the center of your table, I hope you have a fantastic, happy, and delicious Easter!!
