What Makes a Good Sunday Dinner?

What is Sunday dinner to you?

For me, it’s a meal that brings everyone together. These days families can be so busy that anything more than a rushed dinner at the end of a hectic weekday can be hard to come by. That’s why we love these easy dinner recipes!

Over the years I’ve found that cooking something just a bit special on the weekend gives everyone a chance to slow down and enjoy some time together. It’s a wonderful way to reset and start the new week!

Sunday dinners do not need to be complicated to achieve its purpose. In my experience, it just needs to be two things: comfort food and something you wouldn’t typically make during the week.

I’m talking cheesy casseroles, roast chicken, pot roast, and creamy mashed potatoes. Maybe they take a little more time to make but they are always worth it!

Below are some of my favorite ideas, including recipes that are perfect for the slow cooker, instant pot, air fryer, and oven – so matter what your preferred cooking method is, you’re sure to find an easy dinner idea that your family will love.

Instant Pot Sunday Dinners

Like the slow cooker, many of these Instant Pot recipes are a matter of adding the ingredients and letting the Instant Pot do its thing – though in this case, it’s much less time than using a slow cooker. The Instant Pot recipes featured below include many classic dishes, like spaghetti and glazed ham, made easier and healthier.
