FAVORITE Easter Dinner Side Dishes

Yes, Easter Ham is a staple at Easter dinner, just as much as carrot cake, but you also can’t have the meal with some side dishes.

Today, we are rounding up all of our favorite side dishes that would be perfect for your Easter meal. From rolls to veggies to salads, there are so many options to choose from. And what’s great is you can pick and customize any of them to your family’s liking.

As a family, we also like to make food assignments so one person isn’t left doing it all. Divvy up the work and your Easter dinner will be simple and delicious.

We hope you enjoy this list of tasty sides for your Easter holiday meal.

Rolls for Easter

Side Tips – Choosing, How Much to Make + More

When hosting a dinner party you want every course to be delicious. This includes the often underestimated side dish. 

Choosing: Once you have your main dish selected you can start planning sides. 

  • Different than the main dish. This may seem obvious, but what I mean by this is that if you’re serving ham as the main dish stay away from sides that also include ham as an ingredient. 
  • Use seasonal ingredients they’re often fresh and cost effective. 
  • Complete the meal using at least one of each of the following vegetables, starch and salad.
  • Include sides that can be made or prepped ahead of time.
  • Mix in new and unique with tried and true. Once you have the traditional starch, veggie and salad recipes picked out go ahead and add something new. 
  • For 6 or fewer guests have 3-4 different sides, then add one more side for every 5 guests. 

How much to make: You do NOT want to run out of food, nor do you want loads of leftovers. The following information can help guide you in how much to make of each type of dish:

  • Potato dish: plan 6 oz per person
  • Vegetable dish: plan 4 oz per person
  • Rice: 1.5 oz per person
  • Plan 1 ½  rolls per person 
  • Pasta dish: 2 ounces for a side dish per person
  • Anticipate needing ½ cup salad per person

How to Keep Sides Hot?

Even if you’re able to make some dishes ahead of time, at some point many dishes will need to get heated and kept hot until it’s all ready to serve. Here are a few ideas you can use to help keep your food hot:

  • A cooler: Not just for keeping food cold. Its insulation will help retain heat.
  • Use the grill. A gas grill, with a thermometer, will work to keep foods warm. Keep the internal temp around 200°F.
  • A crock pot set to low or warm. 
  • Use an insulated food carrier
  • Chafing Dishes
