Easter is going to be different this year for sure, but I am still planning on cooking our family’s traditional Easter dinner. My little family and our close neighbor are all looking forward to the meal I am preparing. Almost all of the food for this meal was purchased in January. The ham is left over from Christmas dinner when I baked up a nearly 50# ham, that I was given by my boss, and ended up freezing a lot of it; including a package reserved for our Easter dinner!
I will also be using any leftovers from my Easter dinner to make 3 different kinds of sandwiches that will be served throughout the holiday weekend.
My menu for our Easter meal is: Ham, rich and cheesy scalloped potatoes, roasted carrots, brussel sprouts, and sweet potatoes, wild rice, parker house rolls, and lemon cheesecake.
On Easter morning I’m making this for breakfast–
Here are the three different kinds of sandwiches I’m going to make–
Ham Spread- the recipe I use is here- I skip the hard-boiled eggs and use Miracle Whip salad dressing for this sandwich. If you want a less sweet taste stick with the mayonnaise. I loved going to church events as a kid because these sandwiches were always served on bakery fresh buns/rolls. I have a great food grinder attachment for my KitchenAid and I use it to grind my ham extra smooth-I’m not fond of chunks of ham in this sandwich.
Ham & Cheese Sliders-the recipe I use is here. I fix these sandwiches a lot on game nights, our guests finish them right off. The Hawaiian Rolls are essential in these sliders.
Cuban Sliders are my favorite of all sandwiches. The best one I’ve had to date was at The Great Dane Pub and Brewing Company in Madison Wisconsin some years ago. Since then I have been regularly making my own. The recipe I use, by Tyler Florence, is here.
Friends, I’m not going to lie it’s been busier than usual around here with everything going on and it’s been hard adjusting to this temporary? new normal. I pray whatever kind of day you have planned for Sunday that it is a good day. I hope you are all well and thank you for stopping and visiting my blog during these difficult times. Until next time–be well and be safe!
