March 2, 2016 – From Easter egg hunts to Easter brunch, we’re here to help you hop right into the Easter holiday with some eggcellent ideas. These better-for-you swaps and Test Kitchen recipes will tickle any fancy.
Slow Cooker Ham
Sweet and savory flavors slow cooked into one juicy ham. And at only $1.34 per guest (for 10 people!), we’re drooling.
Easter Bunny Baskets
Your favorite breakfast fare perfectly nestled into a homemade French roll. Did we mention the bloody Mary sauce? Serves 12 under 50 cents per person (cost of alcohol not included).
A mimosa bar for 18 people for under 20 bucks? Pick a bubbly. Any bubbly.
Classic Carrot Cake
Bunnies aren’t the only ones who love carrots. $1.01 a slice for 8 guests makes party planning a piece of cake (pun intended).
Looking for ways to make your Easter food better for you? We have some ideas to get you started:
- Use creamy avocado instead of mayonnaise in your favorite deviled egg recipe. Guiltless and delicious.
- Healthier choices don’t mean you have to ignore your sweet tooth. Try homemade chocolate-covered fruit instead of sugary candy.
- Instead of filling your Easter eggs with candy, try filling them with fun-sized snacks like popcorn, cherry tomatoes or fruit cut with cookie cutters.
