Who doesn’t love Easter Sunday?

It’s a wonderful holiday filled with family, food, and fun. Whether you’re having brunch or dinner after church that day, it’s common for friends and family to gather and celebrate. For these occasions, we love to serve Easter appetizers!

Why we love them:

  • Variety. There are so many appetizer options to choose from to complete a tasty spread!
  • For a crowd. With so many people hanging out, it’s nice to have food for your company to snack on while dinner is being prepared.
  • Easy. From quick and easy to make ahead, we have plenty of choices.

Spring Ingredients

  1. Spring vegetables are perfect for savory appetizers: artichoke, asparagus, broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, mushrooms, snap peas, green beans, assorted lettuce, kale spinach, baby carrots, beets, onions, shallots, young radishes, and more!
  2. Fresh herbs and spices can add flavor to appetizers containing fruits or vegetables. Some great spring herbs include parsley, chives, pepper, cilantro, dill, basil, rosemary, thyme, and mint.
  3. Spring fruits can create a sweet balance to more savory appetizers. Rhubarb, coconut, apricots, mango, some cherries, pineapple, orange, lime, lemon, grapefruit, and strawberries are readily available in spring. I love serving fruit platters and kids especially love Fruit Kabobs 
  4. Mini fruit tarts and mini vegetable quiche add variety to any appetizer spread.
  5. Puff pastries make a great base for both sweet and savory appetizers. 
  6. Cheese can be served plain on Charcuterie Boards paired with things like smoked salmon or prosciutto, fresh fruit, and crostini. Or they can be incorporated into other dishes.

Menu Planning

  • Variety. Plan to serve both cold and hot appetizers, savory and sweet, light and heavy. Use contrasting colors and textures too.
  • Plan ahead. Choose appetizers that are easy to make as well as ones that can be made ahead of time. If you do choose to make, or heat up, appetizers the day of, don’t forget to factor them into the cooking schedule.

Instructions

  • After 15 minutes, transfer the eggs to an ice bath for 5 minutes.
  • Remove the eggs from the ice bath and tap on the counter to crack. Remove the shells and rinse the peeled eggs under water to remove any remaining shell remnants.
  • Carefully cut each egg lengthwise, remove the yolk, and transfer yolks to a small bowl. Set the egg white shells aside.
  • Add mayonnaise and mustard to yolks and whip with a fork. Add salt and pepper to taste. When ready to serve, spoon mixture into the hole of each egg white and sprinkle with paprika.

    With Easter being this Sunday I appreciated that the easy to peel boiled eggs post was included. My kids always color the eggs then my husband I eat them throughout the week and it makes it soo much better when the shell comes off easily.
