The Best Recipes for Easter Lunch in Your Annexe

Easter is just around the corner and by the sound of the weather forecast, it’s going to be a scorcher! The annual holiday is the perfect time to gather the family and cook up a great lunch – whether you celebrate Easter or not. Family time is precious so take advantage of the holidays and invite the family to your annexe for Easter lunch – traditional or not, we have some great recipes to ensure that you have the perfect Easter!

Easter Recipes to Cook in Your Annexe

Lamb is a traditional option for Easter lunch but maybe you’re vegetarian or don’t celebrate Easter in a traditional way? Either way, we have listed some great lunch options below to tempt the family round to your granny annexe.

Traditional Roast

Who doesn’t love a Sunday roast? Mouthwatering roast lamb, potatoes and vegetables make the perfect lunch for the family. We are fans of roast lamb studded with rosemary and garlic. The lamb is best prepared a day in advance to really release the flavours.

BBQ Chicken

As mentioned, the weather is set to be warm this Easter so you may choose to enjoy a BBQ in your granny annexe garden. Take advantage of the rare British sun and get your grill on! Jamie Oliver has a great recipe for the best BBQ chicken. Don’t forget the beers!

Simnel Cake

Tasty marzipan Simnel cake is an Easter classic but did you know the significance of the fondant balls usually found on top of the cake? They are said to represent Jesus and the twelve apostles. Delicious and interesting! Mary Berry has a great recipe for the classic Easter treat on her website.

Vegetable Casserole

If you fancy a lighter vegetarian option this Easter Sunday, Waitrose has a great suggestion – a creamy vegetable casserole. If you think veggie casserole sounds boring, then take a look at the photos to see how great the dish actually looks.

Fish Friday

Waitrose also has an entire set of Easter fish recipes on their website. Fish is traditionally eaten on Good Friday, but nobody will mind if you break the rules. With warm weather predicted for the bank holiday weekend fish might be a lighter option for anyone not wanting a heavy meal.

Hot Cross Buns

What Easter lunch would be complete without the traditional hot cross bun? A firm family favourite, we are big fans of Nigellas’ recipe.

Go Greek

We have plenty of traditional British options to choose from but why not mix it up this year and try a traditional Easter lunch from a different country? Magiritsa, sometimes known as ‘Easter soup’ is a sort of chunky stew or soup that is traditional in Greece. Made using lamb offal, it’s budget friendly and delicious.

Easter Ham

A specially prepared joint of ham is traditional at Easter because historically, Easter is the right time to eat hams that have been cured over winter. Take a look at Delish for 12 Ham Recipes For A Crazy-Flavorful Easter Dinner.

One Pan Lamb

Although your granny annexe kitchen will be big enough to rustle up a feast, one pan dishes are a great choice to save time and not have a mountain of dirty dishes at the end of lunch. BBC Good Food has a great recipe for one-pan Easter Lamb.
