What is Included in a Traditional Easter Dinner?

Of course, Easter dinner can be as formal or as casual as it suits you to be. Some prefer a sit-down feast, others celebrate with Easter brunch, and others might even gather with their families potluck-style. 

In general, however, a traditional Easter meal has a few key dishes that are classic to the holiday:

  • A roast or cooked protein, often ham or lamb
  • Side dishes like spring vegetables and traditional hot cross buns
  • Fresh salads with seasonal ingredients
  • And last but not least, unforgettable desserts

To help out with some inspiration, I’ve included a little bit of everything in my favorite Easter dinner recipes below!
