Easy Easter Sunday Dinner Recipes

Easter Sunday is almost here and it’s a time for family, friends – and delicious food.

Whether you’re hosting a gathering or simply looking to enjoy a special meal with your loved ones, having the perfect Easter recipes can make all the difference.

From classic dishes to twists on family favourites, here are some of the best recipes for an Easter Sunday dinner that will surely delight your guests and create lasting memories.

Devilled Eggs

Forget chocolate eggs, devilled eggs are a great starter for your Easter meal – and very easy to prepare too. Simply boil, peel, and halve hard-boiled eggs, then mix the yolks with mayonnaise, mustard, and spices before piping the mixture back into the egg whites. Garnish with paprika or fresh herbs for an elegant finishing touch.

Roast Leg of Lamb

A traditional Easter favourite, roast leg of lamb is a succulent and flavourful centrepiece for any dinner table. Marinated with garlic, rosemary, and olive oil, then slow-roasted to perfection, this dish is sure to impress. Serve it with roasted vegetables and a side of mint jelly for a classic combination that never fails to please.

Spring Vegetable Tart

Celebrate the season with a vibrant spring vegetable tart that showcases the best produce of the year. Layer thinly sliced courgettes, asparagus, and cherry tomatoes on a flaky puff pastry crust, then top with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese and a drizzle of balsamic glaze. Bake until golden brown and serve warm with a mixed salad for a stunning and delicious dish.

Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Icing

No Easter dinner is complete without a decadent dessert, and carrot cake is a perennial favourite. Moist and spiced cake layers are sandwiched with tangy cream cheese icing, and then decorated with chopped nuts or a sprinkle of cinnamon for a seasonal touch. Serve slices with a cup of coffee or tea for the perfect ending to your Easter feast.

Hot Cross Buns

And if your guests have any room left at teatime, these soft, lightly spiced buns studded with raisins provide a must-have Easter treat. Serve them warm from the oven with a generous slathering of butter.

With these simple but delicious recipes, you can create a memorable Easter Sunday dinner that will delight your guests and provide something for everyone to enjoy as you gather to celebrate this special day.
