Easter is a time for reflection and celebration, and also for family and delicious food. Here at Butcher Boy, we firmly believe in upholding the traditional meals that bring families together. 

We carry a variety of ham, legs and racks of lamb, and roasts for your Easter dinner, and mouth-watering brisket perfect for Passover. We have sides to complement the savory meats, and homemade glazes, sauces, and gravy to top it all off. Visit our Bakery for your holiday desserts and fresh Produce section for the ingredients you need to make an unforgettable meal at home. 

Below are some of our favorite Easter recipes. 

1) Glazed Easter Ham

While we carry a delicious homemade honey ham glaze in-store, we can’t help but be intrigued by The Pioneer Woman‘s brown sugar glaze. Spicy brown mustard, apple cider vinegar, and get this, Dr. Pepper (or Coke) combine with brown sugar to create a sweet glaze with a slight tang. Our hams are fully cooked, so use our Ham Roasting Guide for reference when heating up the meat for this recipe.

2) Greek Lamb

This tender, roasted leg of lamb from Compass & Fork is a perfect table centerpiece for Easter. In true Greek form, the lamb is stuffed with bits of garlic and small sprigs of rosemary, with deep incisions made into the meat. The lamb is then marinaded overnight in sea salt, pepper, olive oil, crushed garlic, rosemary, and lemon juice. This meal is succulent and flavorful, and is sure to be a crowd-pleaser.

3) Asparagus with Hollandaise Sauce (Brown Butter)

With heavy meats, you may find yourself craving a lighter side. Low Carb Maven delivers just that with their brown butter hollandaise-covered asparagus. A tradition hollandaise is made by continuously whisking butter and egg yolks. This recipe goes more high-tech, slowly adding melted browned-in-a-pan butter to a slow-running blender with the egg yolks, lemon juice, and water.

4. Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes

Au Gratin Potatoes

via Yellow Bliss Road

Planning ahead is all a part of the meal process. This recipe from Yellow Bliss Road has you boil the russet potatoes whole and unpeeled, cutting down on precious cooking time. Prepare the creamy bechamel sauce loaded with shredded cheddar cheese while the potatoes boil. The ground Hungarian paprika and fresh chives for garnish help make this dish as colorful as it is delicious.

Happy Easter from all of us at Butcher Boy Market.
