More Easter Dinner Ideas

Thinking about Easter Dinner always brings back fond memories of sitting around my grandparents' table on Easter Sunday, preparing to pass around the ham, mashed potatoes and macaroni and cheese baked casserole. My grandmother is a farmer's wife so Easter Dinner included lots of hearty side dishes to go with the ham.

I've gathered a few other alternatives to Easter Dinner below to help you - in the event that planning a diverse Easter Dinner falls on your shoulders!
