The more crockpots the better! This All-In-The-Crockpot Easter dinner (with the exception of the salad) is so simple and mouthwatering. You do need five crockpots for this dinner, but you should really have at least two on hand at all times. Borrow three, or buy a couple of new models. There are even crockpots that have three crock in one base that make serving buffet-style much easier. If you entertain a lot, think about getting one.
Since almost everything in this menu is warm, I did have to add a green salad. This one is a favorite because it's fresh, crunchy, delicious, and bright.
One of the nicest things about this menu is that it's so easy on the cook. You just have to plate everyone on serving platters or bowls, but there's no rushing around stirring things on the stovetop or trying to cram foods into the oven with this menu.
Set your table with bright and colorful china, or use your best. Make sure you have flowers for a centerpiece, because it's spring, and have some nice music playing in the background.
Enjoy this easy dinner with family and friends.
All-In-The-Crockpot Easter Dinner
- Crockpot Garlic Smashed Potatoes
This easy recipe use lots of garlic, small red potatoes, and cream cheese to make a delicious side dish. You can mash the potatoes completely if you'd like (peel them before adding them to the crockpot) but I like a bit of texture.
- Crockpot Pineapple Glazed Ham
Any glazed ham is going to be good, but this recipe, which adds pineapple to the mix, is really delicious. You can use a regular cooked ham or a spiral sliced ham; it's up to you.
- Updated Green Bean Casserole
The classic holiday green bean casserole is updated with Alfredo sauce and the crockpot. This rich and creamy dish is very special.
- Pear and Greens Salad
This fresh and beautiful salad adds great flavor and color to the menu, along with a welcome temperature contrast. Add the pears just before you're ready to serve.
- Praline Pecan Cheesecake
This fabulous cheesecake cooks right in the slow cooker. That means it is tender, moist, and perfectly cooked. The greatest thing about making a cheesecake in the slow cooker is that the cheesecake has exactly the same texture from edge to center. And the flavor is simply fabulous.
