Today we decided to dedicate our typical recipe of the week article to highlight our favorite Easter recipes.
Each week we bring you a recipe that we have made in our OWG kitchen. Whether it be a recipe that comes straight out of the garden or our favorite holiday recipes that we share with our own family and friends.
To make it easier to find recipes for your Easter holiday gathering we have included our favorite Easter recipes in this post.
From breakfast ideas to dinner and dessert, you will get a look into what we serve and enjoy on Easter day with our family and friends.
We like to start off morning with breakfast already prepared and ready to cook. We have so much to do in the morning and it is important to us that breakfast is cooking while we get ready with no prep work required.

When everyone begins to arrive, we always like to have a few appetizers on the table to snack on.
We usually have a few different types of deviled eggs, cheese trays, fruit trays and a few special dips served with vegetables or chips.
We nibble on these delicious appetizers until everyone arrives. And isn’t there always that one individual that we need to tell to arrive an hour earlier than everyone else so they show up on time??
Our favorite part about Easter dinner is the variety of delicious side dishes that so many bring to the table.
In our extended family, you can always expect the same people to bring their speciality Easter recipe, year after year!
Does your family do the same?
Although we could list a lot of side dish recipes, here are a few of our must have favorites!
Of course, the star of the show at our Easter dinner is the main dish. We actually make two main dishes for our family meal. Easter ham that we prepare with a honey glaze is the favorite of many at the table.
However, due to dietary restrictions of some, we also prepare our moist and delicious turkey for those that can’t or choose not to eat pork.
As if we haven’t already had enough food, there is usually a whole table designated for desserts.
From classic pies to carrot cakes to cookies and chocolates, there is enough for everyone to sample a few sweet treats to end the meal.
We would love to know what Easter recipes that you will be making this year! Send us a comment on Facebook so everyone can see what you will be sharing with your family!
