Traditional Easter Foods

April 29, 2013 Emily Murray Chicago 0 Comments

Traditional Easter Foods

Every holiday has its signature foods, and Easter is no exception. As you prepare your Easter meal, consider adding a few of these traditional and trustworthy foods to the menu.

Hot cross buns
These sweet treats are typically eaten on Good Friday and are meant to be shared with a friend. While it’s counterintuitive to be superstitious on a Christian holiday, the history of this food is a bit superstitious. The idea is that if you share a hot cross bun with a friend, then you are meant to be friends forever. If hot cross buns aren’t your favorite, look for or make other sweet breads and pastries, which are also common at Easter time.

Hard boiled eggs
We all know this one. It’s not only about decorating Easter eggs and then hiding them for the hunt later; it’s the egg’s symbolism of renewal and rebirth that make it a holiday favorite.

Lamb
Biblically speaking, the lamb is often sacrificed in praise of God. Fortunately, a rack of lamb and legs of lamb make beautiful additions to the table as well. Ham and roasted chicken are also Easter favorites.

In-season produce
Get fresh at Easter. Fresher always tastes better. Look for in-season produce such as artichokes, asparagus, horseradish, lettuce, and navel oranges.

Marshmallow bunnies
The famous “Peeps” marshmallow bunnies have been around since the 1950s. Whether you choose to buy or make your own, it’s not Easter without a few.

More homage to the Easter bunny
Try a carrot cake for dessert. Create centerpieces using Easter bunny cutouts.  Get creative with your dinner table. It is Easter after all.
