Cheater Chef offers 17 Easter recipe ideas. We know deviled eggs are on the menu, but what else? We’ve looked through the Cheater Chef archives and offer a few suggestions. First of all, we’ve got easy directions for baking your own ham, probably the cheapest and easiest meat to cook. If you’re thinking lamb, we’ve got lamb chops. Sides–you’ll need some kind of potato like potato salad or au gratin potatoes. We also adore little twice-baked russets. Maybe stone ground cheesy grits suit you. Biscuits or cornbread? We’re thinking something lemony for dessert. Pair it with fresh strawberries. Leftover ham–make a big chopped salad the next day.
