From egg hunts and church ceremonies to the many various sorts of traditional Easter meals, every family has their own unique Easter traditions. Sure, glazed ham and hot cross buns are probably the first things that come to mind when thinking of Easter food, but there are plenty of other foods from around the world that are well worth trying. In truth, traditional Easter recipes differ by country, and some meals have Easter origins dating back to ancient times. This list will teach you everything you need to know about Easter food customs, and you might even get some ideas for your own family's Easter dinner or brunch.
Easter Sunday wouldn't be complete without deviled eggs and Ree Drummond's favourite ham recipes. But did you know that lamb is one of the most popular Easter main courses? Because it grew more accessible in the twentieth century, ham became a viable Easter alternative in the United States. Another interesting food fact: many cultures bake delicious Easter bread. In Italy, it's topped with colourful boiled eggs, but in Greece, it's customary to put red eggs on top. We've included recipes from Mexico, Portugal, Poland, and more, in addition to American, Italian, and French fare. While these delights have been passed down through the years, you might find them to be a pleasant new addition to your Easter feast this year!
- Rack of Lamb: Lamb is a must-have on any list of traditional Easter meals. It's immensely popular throughout most of Europe, and this simple roasted version is topped with rosemary and garlic, just like in France.
- Easter Bread: Many countries have their own variation of this traditional sweet bread. It has a delicate, rich flavour comparable to challah bread, but it's made with colourful whole eggs baked directly into the braided loaf!
- Candied Carrots: Candied carrots evoke images of the Easter Bunny, who is said to visit on the eve of Easter. This recipe brings out the flavour of the orange vegetable, and it's a terrific side dish for those who aren't eating meat for Lent.
- Asparagus: Asparagus is one of the most colourful and tasty side dishes to serve with ham. It's a springtime veggie that appears in the early spring (just in time for Easter). It's a traditional side dish in Greece and Italy, as well.
- Deviled Eggs: Around the world, eggs are a traditional Easter food. Whipped deviled eggs with dill are a great party appetiser or snack!
- Hot Cross Buns: For years, these sweet, spicy buns have been an Easter ritual in England. They're traditionally eaten on Good Friday to commemorate the conclusion of Lent, which makes sense—after all, who wouldn't want to rejoice with warm, cinnamon goodness?!
- Honey-Mustard Glazed Ham: On Easter, there's nothing more traditional than a glazed American ham! For the sweet-and-savory glaze, only five ingredients are required. Also, here's a bonus tip: Look for a bone-in ham that isn't spiral cut; it will be easier to score and keep its juices during the cooking process.
- Babka: In many Polish people's swicone baskets, a food basket taken to church to be blessed on Easter Saturday, sweet, buttery Polish yeast bread takes the cake. Chocolate swirls run throughout this dish, tearing away into luscious, tempting layers.
- Lemon Bars: Another spring flavour that can be found in classic Easter platters is lemon. The right mix of crust and filling may be found in Ree Drummond's favourite lemon bar recipe. They're so excellent that they vanish in the Drummond household in a matter of minutes.
- Capirotada: This classic Mexican bread pudding is served during Lent and Easter. This variation includes of layers of bread, raisins, bananas, and sweetened cinnamon milk, though no two households make it the same way.
These lovely goodies are not only delicious to eat, but also fun to make with your family. With Easter fun just around the corner, make this year's Easter the best ever by serving any (or all) of these wonderful sweets that everyone in the family will love!
