Easter Lunch Menu Ideas

If you plan on sleeping late or going to Easter services, you don’t have to forgo Easter entertaining. A lunch between noon and 3 p.m. may meet your needs. You’ll just need to go over your Easter lunch menu ideas carefully. Lunch can be served either buffet style or as a sit down affair. However, if you want to eat immediately after church, I would suggest opting for buffet style.

Whichever you choose, your lunch menu will need to offer more than a brunch menu with additional hot dishes. You can still serve finger foods but adding more meat and vegetable dishes will make your lunch-time meal a hit.

Consider serving any combination of these items:

  • Ham
  • Potato salad
  • Spinach salad
  • Deviled eggs
  • Green beans
  • Butterbeans (lima beans)
  • Glazed carrots
  • Boiled or steamed cabbage
  • Macaroni and cheese
  • Sweet potato souffle
  • Cornbread or Biscuits
  • Raw vegetables & dip

Include an Easter themed punch or drink, kid-friendly of course, and your meal will be wonderful.

Easter lunch is usually pretty casual. You may choose to serve buffet style or a sit down dinner. To decide which option best suits your needs, take a look at where you will be just before you dine. Then come up with Easter lunch menu ideas based on your needs.
