(StatePoint) With Easter just around the corner, you’re probably thinking about how to keep the holiday celebration fresh and new, while also honoring those family traditions everyone loves. One way to meld old and new in celebration of Easter is through everyone’s favorite holiday tradition -- the food!

The Main Dish

To avoid the same Easter meal year after year, consider spicing up your traditional entrees. If you’re hosting brunch for friends and family, keep the entrée light and save yourself some time by incorporating everyone’s favorite Easter staple – eggs. From quiche to frittatas to casseroles, several dishes can be prepared the day before and get you out of the kitchen and spending more time with friends and family.

If your family celebrates with dinner, serve a ham with a citrus glaze for a tangy approach or prepare your roast with a garlic mint rub for a new spin on the traditional dish.

Sides

For a new take on sides, switch up your vegetables and take advantage of the fresh spring produce, such as asparagus, chives, peas, artichokes, and shallots, and incorporate it into your dishes. Easter often involves heavy entrees so consider roasting vegetables with fresh herbs in olive oil to whet your guests’ appetites and balance the meal.

Sweet Treats

Easter isn’t Easter without delicious sweet treats! The holiday only comes once a year so make it a family tradition to serve something memorable and special.

Easter is all about variety, so fill your Easter baskets with hand-decorated eggs, chocolate bunnies, jelly beans, truffles, and lollypops that have no added preservatives.  American-made delicious, See’s makes their treats in their own candy kitchens, using only the finest ingredients.

Easter should be delicious so fill your holiday with fresh, seasonal meals and treats and enjoy!
