Serve them with tender pieces of broccolini, Brussels sprouts with crispy bacon, and creamy macaroni and cheese (yes you can make it in your air fryer!), adding depth and variety to the meal.

Finish on a sweet note with indulgent desserts like vibrant brightly decorated Easter donuts, moist lemony cake, and don’t forget the classic hot cross buns that capture the essence of the holiday with every bite.

Using an air fryer for your Easter meal will cut down your cooking time. It acts just like a conventional oven by circulating hot air around the food in a small appliance.

Tips for a Great Easter Dinner

  • Timing Easter dinner is often enjoyed in the late afternoon or early evening of Easter Sunday, however, this special occasion is often enjoyed at lunchtime after church services.
  • Prep Plan for your meal ahead of time and make a list of the main dish and all of the sides. Prep as much as you can, then store it in the refrigerator until it’s time to cook. Also, don’t be afraid to ask guests to bring a side or dessert.
  • Decor Set your Easter table with pastel linens and tablecloths. Add in some warm touches like hand-woven vine placemats and fresh flowers as a centerpiece. Check out Prudent Penny Pincher’s 100 DIY Dollar Tree Easter decorations for inspiration.
