Easter Recipes and Menus

Easter is a special holiday that is important to those of the Christian faith. It is celebrated with an egg hunt, with church services, and with food. You can serve special menus for Easter breakfast, especially before a sunrise service, or serve a brunch after church. These menus must be special, featuring eggs in some form, spring fruits, and special breads.

Easter dinner usually features a moist, tender, and salty ham, with accompaniments that range from asparagus to potatoes to fresh fruits....MORE And Easter desserts are special too. Have a wonderful Easter celebration with family and friends.
