An Easter Buffet Roundup

What’s for Easter dinner?  Lemon and lamb and lots of spring salads I hope!  Here I have collected 12 delicious options for a special meal that’s not too stressful.

Easter Buffet Recipes

Of Easters past I have fond memories that include visits from my grandparents and singing hymns together in church, as well as hunting in the backyard for Easter candy and eggs.  Worship and feasting are still the most important aspects for me, as we celebrate the most significant event in the Christian faith.

What I have also enjoyed in recent years are celebrations that extend outward, inviting others to join us for a meal that is festive without being too elaborate.  Since we will be away at church in the morning, practically speaking, as much of the meal should be made ahead of time as possible.

As I contemplated what I might serve this year, quite a number of dishes from this blog came to mind.  For your convenience and mine, I have compiled a roundup of recipes that are strong candidates for the Easter table and other spring occasions.  Are you ready to celebrate?

Furthermore, I hope that we each find someone to join our tables for an even more blessed experience.
