Easter Dinner Party

Get into the Easter spirit with these delicious dinner party ideas - from classic Easter lamb recipes to unusual desserts, there's something for everyone

is such a great time to get your family and friends together and spend
some quality time celebrating. As with any celebration you’ll want
something delicious to serve up to your guests and we’ve got plenty of
choice for you to choose from.

For starters, why not try something special this year? Our Cheesy Marmite Wreath
is a great twist on an Easter classic – the hot cross bun. Its savoury
flavours are a great way to kick off any dinner party and as it’s a
sharer it’s super fun too.

When it comes to the main event,
it’s hard to imagine an Easter dinner party without having lamb, and
luckily we’ve got plenty of lamb recipes to choose from that your guests will just love. Whether you want something more traditional or want to mix it up a little and go for some more unusual flavours we’ve got plenty to choose from. Our Persian-Style Stuffed Lamb is full of unusual flavours while our Mediterranean Lamb with Feta Stuffing is a real treat for the taste buds.

When it comes to pudding, you can’t go wrong with a traditional syllabub recipe and we’ve got a delicious lemon version you simply must try. And of course, Easter is the perfect time to indulge in a traditional Simnel Cake.

For something a little different, try our Earl Grey Tea Cake for a no fuss recipe you can cook up in advance and serve to your guests, or our Easter Celebration cake is also a great dinner party dessert option.

And of course, it wouldn’t be Easter without Hot Cross Buns, so whether you want something traditional or a little more out there there like our Easy Easter Creme Brulees, you’re sure to find something your guests will just love in our guide to throwing the perfect Easter dinner party.

You can’t go wrong with a classic lamb recipe for an Easter dinner recipe and this slow-roasted lamb shoulder is flavoured with garlic, rosemary and wine, plus takes just 15 minutes to prepare.

This deliciously slow roasted meat serves six, so it’s great if you’ve got a lot of people coming over.
