Grilled Easter Dinner

In many places, it's nice enough to grill outside on Easter Sunday. If it isn't, you can still cook this menu - just use an indoor grill or a grill pan on the stovetop.

In fact, if it's really nice, eat this dinner outside. There's nothing like basking in warm spring sunshine, with the aromas of grilling food drifting overhead. Put fresh flowers on the table and light candles in hurricane lamps. And use your best china, prettiest stemware, and silver flatware, if you have it.

Fold napkins into fancy shapes and put an Easter egg at each place.

Enjoy this festive and easy meal with your family.

Grilled Easter Dinner

  • Brie with Cherry Chutney
    No, this appetizer isn't grilled, but it's the perfect appetizer to pass while everyone is waiting to eat. The combination of cherry chutney with warm and melting brie cheese is simply spectacular.
  • Pineapple Lamb Chops
    Lamb chops are another fabulous choice for Easter dinner. This fresh recipe is mouth-watering. I love the combination of sweet and tart pineapple with the rich lamb.
  • Hobo Potatoes
    This easy side dish is cooked on the grill. You can omit the bacon if you'd like; in that case I'd add some fresh herbs like thyme or tarragon.
  • Strawberry Spinach Salad
    This salad is beautiful, colorful, and full of flavor. Make a double batch - people will come back for seconds with this recipe!
  • Grilled Butter Pecan Pound Cake
    You can cook this recipe on the outdoor grill too; just double the cooking time. I love to serve this one with butter pecan ice cream.
