Which is your Easter dinner main course?
Ham or Lamb?
On the prairie, ham is the Easter meat of choice -- the bone going into the last pot of beans while it's still cool enough to enjoy a pot of ham and beans.
But . . . we adore lamb and since the last few years, it's just the two of us . . . a rack of lamb is PERFECT for Easter dinner.
That's what we'll have tomorrow along with asparagus and risotto with spring peas. Lamb cake for dessert. And deviled eggs -- THAT's a tradition that we have to keep!
So which is it for your family?
Ham or Lamb?
View my blog:
My father did and brother still does raise sheep so we had lamb for Easter while I was growing up and still occasionally do. So now it's mostly ham on Easter. However, I never have ham for any other holiday! Turkey on Thanksgiving and beef rib roast or other great beef entree for Christmas.
This year is my immediate family, not the huge family gathering as usual. I normally cook ham, turkey & dressing and hen. Dad loves hen,has to have it. LOL. I am only having ham and mac & cheese casserole,deviled eggs,rolls and some kind of beans.I thought of corn/cob too.
Both. Customs from my family's side dictated lamb for Easter - my husband's family always had ham - and I do both. And my children love both. I'll have a butt of ham, glazed with pineapple and a boneless lamb roast with oven-roasted potatoes & carrots & roasted asparagus. I also serve an ambrosia salad. Others will bring dessert. I will have trays of Easter candies & chocolate bunnies.
