Simple Easter Dinner Menu

Slow Cooker Beef Pot Roast

Let’s start with the meat. It seems every good holiday menu needs meat. Slow cooker recipes are my favorite because you can fix it and forget it!

This easy slow cooker beef pot roast is so delicious. It can be served on sandwich buns for a lower key menu as well. Wanting it for lunch? Just cook it on high for 4-5 hours instead of on low. Get the full recipe here.

You can even cook it ahead put it on the warm setting on your slow cooker while you are at church or hunting eggs. Plus, the leftovers are delicious!

Easy Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole

No Easter holiday dinner menu would be complete without potatoes. These aren’t just any potatoes. Filled with cream cheese, sour cream, shredded cheese and more – these potatoes are full of flavor. Plus, you can make them ahead and store in the fridge or freezer. Find the full hash brown casserole recipe here.

Easy Sautéed Green Beans with Bacon

There wasn’t an Easter dinner growing up that didn’t include my Grandma’s famous bacon green beans. You’ll never eat green beans without bacon again. Plus, they are so easy and cook up fast so it’s an easy vegetable to have as part of your Easter holiday menu. Check out the full recipe here.

Sweet Resurrection Rolls Recipe

These resurrection rolls or empty tomb rolls, as some call them, are not only delicious but are a great way to demonstrate why we celebrate Easter to guests young and old. My kids love to get in the kitchen and help make these plus they take under 15 minutes to make so they are a great sweet bread addition to your Easter dinner menu.

We like to make them for Easter breakfast as well so you could make a double batch and rewarm them for Easter lunch or dinner. Check out the simple resurrection roll recipe here.

Simple Easter Dinner menu sides ideas

A Few More Simple Sides

Bagged Salad Kit

Grab a bagged salad kit and toss it together in a pretty bowl as an additional side that takes no extra time to prepare.

Fruit or Veggie Tray

Another easy addition that even the tiniest sous chefs can help you prepare. Cut and wash the vegetables ahead or buy a pre-made vegetable or fruit tray.

Place it on your own tray and no one would know you didn’t do it yourself. Add a yummy dip as well and you have yourself another simple side.

Refrigerated or Frozen Bread

Grab some crescent rolls or a frozen bread dough and cook that up. Place it in a towel lined basket for another simple side.

You can even make them ahead and warm them up in the oven for 5 minutes if you are short on oven space on the day of your Easter holiday dinner.

We Can’t Forget About Dessert…

Easy Ice Cream Pie

This ice cream pie recipe can be made in a hundred different ways depending on your taste buds. We love making it with mint chocolate chip ice cream but you can use any hard serve ice cream. Make a few with different flavors and let your guests pick or maybe they’ll want a sliver of each.

The best news is that this recipe is best made ahead meaning it will take no work on the day of your Easter dinner. Get the full ice cream pie recipe here.
