Easter side dishes for a lovely family meal

Holiday meals don’t need to be complicated. Using simple ingredients in creative ways gives you the opportunity to offer your family delicious food that seems elegant and special, without taking you all day — or involving cooking skills only seen on TV.

Vegetable dishes you’ll adore

Lemon Green Beans with Feta and Fried Pecans will satisfy even the most stubborn non-veggie eaters at your Easter table. The recipe from The Food Charlatan is fresh, filled with the delicious addition of feta and fried pecans and delivers non-soggy green beans every time — so important for cooked vegetable recipes.

The Endless Meal brings you her Bacon Roasted Brussels Sprouts, and your Easter guests will thank you for them. Not only does roasting vegetables turn them into a delicious, irresistible dish, the inclusion of bacon makes everything better. Kristen even includes a fantastic tip for how to time the cooking of the Brussels Sprouts to help get everything ready for your holiday meal at the right time.

Fabulous potato side dishes

Seasons & Suppers offers an Easter side dish that hits many of the favorite ingredients on your guests’ lists. Creamy Stood-up Potatoes with Bacon and Aged Cheddar is a recipe that takes a classic dish — scalloped potatoes — and tweaks it into the type of dish everyone will beg you to make for every holiday meal.

Herbed Potatoes Anna uses only five ingredients, but the finished result is a beautiful, elegant side dish that will look lovely on your Easter table. NeighborFood has identified an impossible-to-ignore flavor combination — potatoes and butter — and added three simple ingredients to create a flavorful side dish that tastes as amazing as it looks.

Creamy Purple Potato Salad from Zestuous adds a gorgeous pop of color to traditional potato salad — and a burst of flavor, too. The creamy potato salad uses Greek yogurt instead of mayo, which makes it a perfect recipe to try if you’re looking for a slightly different version of a traditional side dish.

A delicious, gluten free side dish

Gluten Free Spring Vegetable Stuffing from Little Leopard Book is a delicious way to accommodate gluten free friends and family members during your holiday meal. Dealing with dietary restrictions can be difficult during holidays, but this stuffing recipe combines your favorite flavors and a cozy, favorite dish using gluten free ingredients.
