If you are looking for something delicious to make for Easter, then take a look at these 15+ Easter Recipes including starters, main dishes, sides, desserts, and sweet treats.
I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t have a whole bunch of Easter recipes on The Purple Pumpkin Blog.
It’s not that we don’t celebrate Easter – we do – it’s just I guess recipes for this time of year aren’t something I’ve really focused on (especially when compared with Halloween or Christmas!).
However, I’ve decided to corral all of my recipes for Easter into one post so that you can easily take a look through them all!
Some of the recipes that I shared originally were not necessarily made for Easter, however, they might be a dish that I think would be great to prepare.
Before I get into the recipes, here is some handy information for you.
Easter recipes are not the only ones I have on my blog, there are 500+ Recipes here for you to enjoy! Please feel free to check them out too.
If you are looking for a specific recipe, please use the search function below. If you can’t find what you are searching for, then please do contact me as I take all reader suggestions on board!

I seem to have a lot more lamb recipes on my blog than I realised, and lamb is a meat that is often associated with and eaten for this spring festival.
I’ve also included a couple of other recipes that would make a great Easter Sunday lunch or dinner.
