Easter Dinner Made Easy!

Easter weekend is fast approaching. My favourite part about any holiday is sharing a great meal with family and friends. However, any meal can be stressful when food allergies or intolerances are involved, especially when it’s something as serious as Celiac disease. To help you out, we’ve compiled some of our favourite gluten-free recipes that are both easy and tasty. If you’ve got ideas to add to the list, please share them with us!

Brunch Ideas

Ultimate Brunch Casserole has become a staple in our house since discovering this recipe last summer. You can’t go wrong with chocolate-banana pancakes, either! Round the meal out with a fruit tray and some gluten-free toast.

Main Course

Ham is a traditional favourite for Easter. We love this three-ingredient recipe that can be prepared in the slow cooker. (If you don’t have a slow cooker, just place the ham in a roaster, rub the ham with brown sugar, pour a can of pineapple over top, and cook as directed on the package.) For a bone-in ham, try this delicious recipe that features balsamic vinegar.

If you’re looking to go with poultry for your main dish, this Wine and Tomato Braised Chicken is a great recipe for crowds. Our Roast Beef-Style Steak is another hearty choice that can be prepared in the oven or the slow cooker.

Side Dishes

If you’re serving ham or pork as your main course, why not continue the theme with bacon & maple scalloped potatoes? Or, for a decadent treat, try our sweet potato recipe!

To jazz up your vegetables, try these unique side dishes:


No holiday meal is complete without a sweet treat! Our current favourites are Peanut Butter-Brownie Pie (just use gluten-free brownie mix and follow the instructions on the box) and Chocolate Chip Ice Box Cake. For something a little lighter, try Fast Fruity Delight!
