Sharing meals for the family this Easter

Perfect dishes for a family dinner.

SHARE

If you're planning Easter dinner this weekend, then you'll need to make a meal that will please everyone's tastebuds.

We think sharing meals are the best option here - if you leave a showstopper at the centre, everyone can help themselves, meaning you won't have to spend too much time in the kitchen. Read on for our top Easter sharing meal ideas.

Banana, cocoa and hazelnut breakfast bread

Stephen Chisholm's banana, cocoa and hazelnut bread is ideal for an Easter brunch as it will fill you right up until lunch, as well as starting your day out with some tasty chocolate flavours – Easter is a day for chocolate after all! Click here for the recipe.

Fish pie

While this isn't a traditional Easter dish, this delicious pie is a winner. You can use any fish you like and, when it's ready, leave it on your dining room table and let everyone help themselves. Serve with some green veg to help lighten it up. Try the recipe here.

Whole roast chicken with stem broccoli

Roast chicken for Sunday lunch is always a solid plan and this recipe from Rob Krawczyk always turns out perfectly. Adding breadcrumbs to the broccoli instead of the chicken is a great way to add some texture to the veg. Get the recipe here.

Stuffed leg of lamb with herbs and smoked garlic

Lamb is a classic Easter dish, so we didn't think this list would be complete without a lamb option. This dish from Kevin Dundon is jam-packed with flavour and the smoked garlic gives the dish an extra dimension of flavour. Try this lamb recipe here.

Chocolate and coffee mousse cake

Easter is all about chocolate, so your meal wouldn't really be complete without a chocolate-based dessert. This mousse cake involves a little bit of work, but the flavours are exceptional, so the result is well worth it. Check out the recipe here
