Easter is fast approaching, and it’s time to start planning the family feast. If you’re looking for a little inspiration, we’ve compiled a list of delicious recipe ideas with a creative spin on classic Easter dishes, using some of our favorite products available at Alsip!
It wouldn’t be Easter without fancy eggs! These Aioli Deviled Eggs have quite a kick to them, thanks to our spicy Horseradish Aioli from Stonewall Kitchen. Simply start by boiling a batch of eggs, shelling them, and cutting lengthwise. Remove the yolks and mix them up with aioli and seasoning, and for a fancy finish, pipe them back into the waiting egg halves. Top them off with some tasty crumbled bacon, or if you’d prefer a vegetarian option, you can opt for the traditional paprika, or a sprinkle of fresh herbs like cilantro, parsley, or dill.
Cheeseballs are always a hit at holiday get-togethers, and our Zippy Horseradish Cheeseball will be a perfect companion for the Aioli Deviled Eggs at the appetizer table. This no-fuss, no-bake recipe is a total breeze to whip together using only four ingredients– you’ll just have to refrigerate it for a few hours so it retains its shape. The star performer in this recipe is our Zippy Horseradish Dip Mix from Country Home Creations, really highlighting the flavor of the cheese and cream cheese as you mix it together into a ball.
A classic glazed baked ham is the quintessential Easter comfort food that takes center-stage at the dinner table, and it couldn’t be easier to prepare. All you need is a fully-cooked ham and a jar of our New England Ham Glaze from Stonewall Kitchen to create this mouth-watering salty-sweet main course by glazing the baking ham.
For an updated version of the traditional glazed ham that packs some serious flavor and aroma, why not try Maple Glazed Ham, featuring a maple mustard sauce with a hint of orange zest, made with Stonewall Kitchen’s Maine Maple Syrup. Glaze your ham partway through the cooking process to bake in the flavors. Your kitchen is sure to smell divine cooking up this main course.
Glazed carrots are definitely one of the most decadent vegetable dishes out there. Even the pickiest kids who aren’t big on veggies will enjoy this sweet and buttery side dish. We love this updated version of candied carrots with a citrussy twist, using our Orange Cranberry Marmalade from Stonewall Kitchen ーsimply cover your carrots with marmalade and cook to infuse with flavor.
Mashed potatoes are another must-have for any holiday feast. You can probably tell by now, we’re pretty big on horseradish, and tthese piquant horseradish mashed potatoes are absolutely phenomenal. Our horseradish mustard from Stonewall Kitchen adds some serious attitude to this traditional side dish. Simply cook and mash your potatoes as usual, but add in goat cheese, cream, horseradish, mustard, and spices to kick it up a notch and become unforgettable.
Why not glaze some more veggies? After all, Easter is all about the sweet treats, and our Maine Maple Syrup is unbeatable. These maple glazed brussels sprouts are perfectly balanced with the smokiness of crumbled bacon and chopped pecans topping them.
Potato salad is one of those rare comfort foods served cold that is just as satisfying as any warm, creamy potato dish. Our Garden Medley Dip Mix from Country Home Creations adds a complexity of flavor to this potato salad that you absolutely must try. All you need to do is slice your ingredients and combine them in a bowl with your sauce (complete with your secret ingredient of dip mix).
A simple Carrot Bundt Cake is definitely Easter Bunny approved. The sweet and lightly spicy batter smells like heaven, and it’s pretty easy to whip together with the help of our Carrot Cake Dip Mix from Country Home Creations. Just combine all of your ingredients, mix, and bake!
While carrot cake is pretty popular among the adults, kids aren’t always quite as keen on it, so this fruit pizza is sure to win them over. Let your kids arrange the fruits in a pretty pattern on the pizza– it’ll help keep them busy before dinner, especially if they’re all hopped up on Easter candy. Pick up some of our Peaches and Crème Dip Mix to make this sweet pan pie come together.
