Easter weekend is the perfect excuse to host gatherings with family and friends. If it’s the first time you are entertaining on the patio this year, why not take a look at our article on refreshing your luxury patio furniture set.
Otherwise, here is our list of top sweet and savoury recipes to ensure your gatherings stand out, whether you are hosting a family barbeque, picnic, or casual lunch this Easter:
1. Montgomery Cheddar and Chilli Hot Cross Buns
Hot cross buns start appearing in shops from New Year, but none are quite like these. If you’re looking for something a little different this year, we recommend these cheddar cheese and chilli versions for a truly special Good Friday treat.
2. Grilled Leg of Lamb with Garlic and Rosemary
Whilst lamb is an Easter weekend staple, this barbequed version allows the meat to develop a mellow flavour and a gorgeous, rosemary-infused crust for extra tastiness.
3. Next Level Potato Salad
The humble potato salad is a staple of any barbeque. This recipe elevates the versatile side dish, incorporating the additional flavours of mustard, horseradish, and crispy onions for a delectable take on the classic.
4. Whiskey Simnel Cake
Simnel cake – a fruitcake featuring a marzipan layer and 11 balls to represent the 12 apostles, minus Judas – is synonymous with Easter weekend. This version includes whiskey-soaked fruit for a modern, grown-up twist.
5. Earl Grey and Orange Hot Cross Bun Trifle
Sticking with boozy desserts, this seasonal take on the traditional trifle is a great way to use up any left over hot cross buns. It would make a fantastic finale to an Easter lunch gathering with its layers of cream, custard, and citrus curd. A true showstopper.
