Easter Main Dishes
No holiday feast is complete without the centerpiece of the meal: the main dish! Easter ham is a traditional choice for the main dish, and for good reason. Salty, smoky, and perfectly seasoned ham is a great complement to many side dishes and perfect for feasting (not to mention that ham makes great leftovers). Perhaps you or your family aren't pork people; if that's the case, never fear. We have also included turkey and lamb recipes that are great for Easter lunch or dinner.

We have also included a couple of simple recipes for glazed carrots and our reader-favorite boiled Brussels sprouts that will be effortless to prepare. Don't confine these delicious sides to dinner alone; any of these savory side dishes would also be a great addition to the Easter brunch recipes above.
