Lunch or Dinner:
With Easter only a few days away, here is some food ideas you could serve for Easter lunch. This is just food I really love to eat and serve family and friends.
Tomato and Basil Bruschetta: One of my favourite things to eat. Simple, fresh and tasty.
Spinach and Ricotta Rolls: I love these, they can be made in advance and frozen until needed.
Prawn and Corn Cakes: I have yet to meet a person who doesn't love these. One of my favourite things to serve and eat.
Guacamole: Could eat this every day.
Smoked Salmon Pancake Rolls: I have been making these for years, and they are always well received by guests.
Lunch or Dinner:
Tagliata for Two: a simple recipe that is easily doubled. Recently my husband cooked the steaks on the barbecue instead of pan-frying them which made it easier for me, all I had to do was make the marinade. For a party, I would scatter the sliced steak on a platter, then drizzle over the dressing and scatter over the tomatoes.
Slow Cooked Lamb Shoulder: Probably my favourite roast lamb recipe. It is so easy to make and I love it served with some Tzatziki, a Greek Salad, and an Eggplant Relish.
Lasagne: the ultimate party dish. It feeds many and you can make it weeks in advance and freeze it. Then defrost and cook when needed.
Green Salad: We love a green salad in our house. Serve this at your next barbecue, it's delicious.
Potato Gratin: Always a crowd pleaser, I love that you can assemble it earlier, then bake it when needed.
Greek Salad: Simple and goes with so many things.
Almond Bread: my favourite biscuit, just try stopping at one.
Tiramisu Torte: Here is something a little bit fancy. Great as you make it the day before.
Chocolate Cheesecake: I love chocolate and I love a good cheesecake.
Baked Ricotta Cheesecake: My all time favourite cheesecake. I love this.
Vanilla Pannacotta with a Berry Compote: The easiest dessert you will ever make.
Fresh Fruit Salad with a Vanilla Lime Syrup: Simple, fresh and tasty.
Chocolate Mud Cake: It's Easter, you have to indulge in chocolate.
Madarica: This is amazing. It takes a bit of work to make, but you need to do it at least 4 days in advance. So great for parties. Freezes well to.
Choc Vanilla Slice: The easiest slice you could ever make.
Sparkling Wine: At any party I have, there has to be spaarkling wine. Prosecco is a favourite.
Triple Berry Margarita: I do love a Margarita and this triple berry version is beautiful and delicious.
Sparkling Fruit Punch: My favourite non alcoholic drink to serve at parties. My kids love this
So there you have it, a few ideas to serve for Easter or any party for that matter.
I am simply someone who loves to cook, and loves seeing my family and friends enjoy my food.
