Any Easter Dinner Ideas? : LUSENET : Cooking & Crafts : One Thread

I could use some Easter Dinner Ideas for a group of about 35. I want to try the hashbrown casserole recipe Karen shared earlier. Any other favorites for a crowd? Thank you!

That sounds like it might work Stan! LOL! I haven't tried llama yet, might be a crowd pleaser! Best wishes.

PIZZA! Now that is one of my favorites! I could decorate it with jelly beans and green coconut. LOL! Thanks Ardie!

My favorite crowd dessert is the banana split cake and so easy to make and everyone that's tried it likes it. Either mix up a white cake or buy an angel food cake, 2 lg containers of frozen strawberries, a bunch of bananas, a can of crushed pineapple and 2 lg containers of cool whip. Crumble 1/2 the cake in a lg bowl add 1/2 the other ingred. ending with the cool whip and then repeat the layers. Sometimes I add pudding to the layers. It's best to leave it set for a day to let everything combine. Garnish with nuts if you want. Now I want some and don't have a crowd to make it for.

Lots & lots of easy crowd pleasing----make ahead salads----for part of the dinner-

For the meat, I would go with a traditional glazed ham. It is easy, feeds a bunch, looks pretty, and for some people it just isn't Easter with ham. It would also compliment the hashbrown casserole. You could then just go with a another vegetable or two or salad, some nice dinner rolls or homemade bread and Terri's desert, which sounds quick and easy and could be made ahead.

Starting today, I will be posting some Easter recipes for the next 7 days, so you might want to stay tuned!

Thank you everybody! Ham, hashbrown casserole, salads and Terri's yummy banana split desert. Sounds like a winner to me! I might skip the llama and pizza this time. LOL!
