Easter Supper

Postby MauEvig » Sat Mar 29, 2014 3:48 pm

Traditionally my family, both my mom and dad's sides respectively, would have baked ham, baked beans, and sweet potatoes for Easter dinner. My step dad also would make a ham gravy which was pretty good, and we'd have mashed potatoes as well.
It was usually a pretty big feast, maybe not as big as thanksgiving, but still pretty big. We'd usually have rolls too, and often get some pork stuffing.
What do y'all have for Easter supper? I kind of miss the traditional meal. i wonder what we'll do this year? I'll probably end up working knowing my luck. :/

That sounds delicious. Is that different from a regular ham?

I had country ham before, too salty. lol.

The problem with a lot of the canned hams is that they are often riddled grizzled. Polish ham has no grizzle at all, is very lean and has a wonderful taste to it. I think it cured rather then cooked, but I do like to put it in the oven with a little brown sugar and pine apple on top.

A spiral ham is my 2nd choice, but again, let the buyer beware, it can look really good, be priced really reasonable, and you get it home and it has more grizzle than a horror movie. I love ham, but I hate grizzle.

The cooking is sort of a challenge for me, because my husband and I both sing in the church choir, and there are so many services Easter weekend--Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and twice on Easter morning. The church always serves a breakfast that morning, which can vary from year to year. This year I think people are bringing casseroles. I have a recipe for an egg casserole with plain yogurt which I love, but I may not get to do that because of all the singing I do.

At home I generally have a baked ham and deviled eggs, because I always dye eggs on Easter Eve and have a yard hunt on Easter afternoon. Now that my kids are older, they hide the eggs for me! And they can be fiendish about it, too.

The sides vary. Often in the spring I do something with asparagus. Not sure otherwise. Maybe mashed potatoes, or the Irish herbed potatoes everyone in my family likes on St. Patrick's Day.

When I worked at the little store in New York I was given a ham at Christmas time once, and that was the only time I really cooked a ham, aside from the slab of ham I bought to make Scalloped potatoes once. It was a really delicious ham and boneless too. So that's my only experience cooking a ham, and it was pre cooked so I think that was pretty easy.

I DO plan on having ham Sunday, thank goodness I got this Sunday off coming up for Easter. I don't know how I managed it, but I got Sunday off.

They are going to have some spiral hams on sale next week, might get one of those.

Deviled eggs would be a good idea to use up those hard boiled eggs from dying them lol.

Murf, a polish ham would probably be a means to an end for you. It's really good and you don't really have to do a lot of preparation and baking. Just warm it up in the oven. You might want to add a little brown sugar and pineapple slices.

MauEvig my sister makes the most scrumptious deviled eggs I ever ate. We have deviled eggs at Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter. I also may be coloring a dozen eggs just for fun, but I like to make egg salad and pack my lunch bucket with egg salad and ham sandwiches for lunch at work. Of course, after the 29th of May there won't be any more work, because I'm retiring. My sister is going to give me a party, but I am going to either barbecue a boneless rib eye roast, or do a Krakus Polish ham like I do at Easter.
