From classic hot cross buns to creamy pasta primavera, we’ve compiled a dazzling array of both traditional and less-conventional Easter foods.

Without further ado, let’s dive into our Easter Recipe Book! 

Section 1: Appetizers & Savory Snacks

#1: Deviled Egg Hatching Chicks

Ingredients

  • 12 hard-boiled eggs

  • 1 small carrot (peeled and sliced into rings)

  • 6 black olives

  • ⅓ cup mayonnaise

  • ½ tsp. Dijon mustard

  • ½ tsp. apple cider vinegar

  • ½ tsp. salt

Servings: 12 

Prep time: 30 minutes               Total time: 30 minutes

Recipe

  • Peel the eggs and wash them. Create a v-shaped tool by cutting a straw down the middle and folding it in half. Use this to cut the top off of each egg in a way that’s jagged, and looks like the egg’s been hatched.

  • Slice a small amount of egg white from the bottom of each egg to make it flat.

  • Carefully, remove each egg’s yolk and put them in a bowl or food processor.

  • Stir your remaining ingredients with the yolk. Mix or process until the mixture is as smooth or lumpy as you like.

  • Spoon or pipe the filling back into each hollow egg white. Put the tops back on the eggs, making sure there's enough space between the egg-white tops and bottoms to create a small chick face on each yolk filling.

  • Add eyes and a beak to each of your yolk fillings to create your hatching chicks. To make the eyes, poke an olive with a plastic straw until you have several small olive circles. To create the beaks, thinly slice a few rings of carrot and cut each into 6 triangular segments. On each egg’s filling, press in 2 olive spots for eyes and 2 carrot triangles for a beak. To serve, garnish with fresh parsley or dill. Enjoy!

#2: Asparagus and Pancetta Puff Pastry Bundles

Ingredients

  • 1 large egg

  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese (shredded)

  • 8 slices (2 ozs.) pancetta

  • ½ lb. asparagus (ends removed)

  • Salt and pepper

Servings: 8 

Prep time: 20 minutes               Cook time: 12 minutes               Total time: 32 minutes

Recipe

  • Heat the oven to 425F/220C/gas mark 7. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.

  • On a floured surface and using a rolling pin, roll out the puff pastry until it’s rectangle-shaped and roughly doubled in size. Square off the edges, and cut it into 8 equal-sized squares or rectangles.

  • Coat the asparagus in olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.

  • Whisk together the egg and 1 tablespoon of water to make the eggwash.

  • To construct your bundles, take a segment of puff pastry and brush it with egg wash. Lay a slice of pancetta, 3-4 asparagus stalks, and parmesan on top. Wrap the pancetta around the asparagus, followed by the puff pastry. Make sure both ends of the pastry overlap, and press them together to seal the bundle. Brush with more egg wash.

#5: Spinach and Feta Spanakopita

Ingredients

  • 2 packs (10 ozs. each) frozen chopped spinach (thawed and squeezed dry)

  • 1 pack (8 oz.) cream cheese (softened)

  • ½ cup feta cheese (crumbled)

  • 2 large eggs (lightly beaten)

  • ¼ cup onion (finely chopped)

  • ¼ cup mayonnaise

  • 2 tbsps. fresh dill (snipped)

  • ¾ tsp. seasoned salt

  • ¼ tsp. pepper

  • 15 sheets phyllo dough (14x9-inch size)

  • ½ cup butter (melted)

  • Tzatziki sauce (optional)

  • Lemon wedges (optional)

  • Fresh dill sprigs (optional)

Servings: 30

Prep time: 45 minutes               Cook time: 15 minutes               Total time: 1 hour

Recipe

  • Preheat the oven to 425F/220C/gas mark 7. In a large bowl, mix the spinach, cream cheese, feta, eggs, onion, mayonnaise, dill, salt, and pepper. Lay out a piece of phyllo dough and brush it with butter. Layer 2 additional phyllo sheets on top, brushing each with butter as you go. Cover the remaining phyllo with a damp towel to stop it from drying out.

  • Arrange ¾ cup spinach mixture in a narrow row lengthways along the phyllo. Leave a 1 inch gap between the filling and the top and bottom of the phyllo. Fold the bottom of the pastry over the filling, and then roll it up. Brush butter over the end of the phyllo and press it down to seal it. Repeat 4 times until the phyllo sheets and spinach mixture is used up. 

  • Line a baking sheet (roughly 15x10x1-inches in size) with parchment paper. Place in your rolls, seam side down.

  • Cut them diagonally into 2-inch thick pieces, but don’t separate the halves from one another. Brush each roll with butter and bake them until golden brown (12-15 minutes). (Optional) serve with tzatziki, lemon, and dill sprigs, if desired.

  • 1 cup whole milk

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 large egg yolk

  • 3 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 ¼ oz. package active dry yeast (2 ¼ teaspoon)

  • ¼ cup plus 1 tsp. granulated sugar

  • ¾ cup confectioners’ sugar

  • 2 tsps. ground cinnamon

  • ½ tsp. ground nutmeg

  • 1 tsp. ground ginger

  • ½ tsp. ground cloves

  • 1 tbsp. orange zest

  • ½ tsp. Kosher salt

  • ¾ cup currants

  • ½ cup apricot jam

Servings: 12

Prep time: 2 hrs 30 minutes (incl. rest time)               Cook time: 20 minutes  

Total time: 2 hrs 50 mins

Recipe

  • Microwave the milk until warm (around 100F/38C). Mix in the yeast and 1 teaspoon of granulated sugar and set aside until frothy (roughly 10 minutes). Add the butter, 1 large egg, and 1 yolk, and whisk until combined.

  • Coat a large bowl and a 13x9-inch baking dish with oil. In another large bowl, combine the flour, zest, spices, salt, and remaining granulated sugar. Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients. Gradually add the milk mixture to the flour mixture, stirring from the middle outward, and slowly incorporating the flour. With a dough hook attachment, knead the dough until smooth (8-10 minutes) before mixing in the currants.

  • Place your dough in the oiled bowl and cover it with plastic wrap. Leave until risen to nearly double the size (around 50-65 minutes).

  • On a lightly floured work surface, cut your dough into 12 equal-sized pieces. Roll each into a ball and place them in a pan. Cover with greased plastic wrap. Let them rise for around 50-60 minutes.

  • Warm oven to 400F/200C/gas mark 6. Whisk together the remaining egg and 1 teaspoon of water; and brush it over the buns. Bake until golden brown (18-22 minutes). Transfer the buns to a wire rack while they cool.

  • Gently warm the apricot jam. Once it's melted, push the jam through a sieve, and then brush it over the warm buns.

  • Combine 1 teaspoon of water with the confectioners’ sugar in a bowl. Pour it into a resealable bag, and cut off a corner. Pipe a cross on top of each bun.

#13: Ham with Maple Gravy

Ingredients

  • 1 (6 lb.) boneless ham

  • 30 cloves garlic

  • ¾ cup maple syrup (divided)

  • 4 tsps. ground mustard

  • 6 medium tart apples (cut into ½ inch slices)

  • 2 cups apple juice

  • 3 tbsps. cornstarch

  • 2 tbsps. butter

  • 3 tbsps. water

Servings: 12

Prep time: 20 minutes               Cook time: 1 hour 15 minutes-2 hours 15 minutes

Total time: 1 hour 35 minutes-2 hours 35 minutes

Recipe

  • Place the ham in a roasting tin. Score the ham with a knife, slicing diamond shapes about ½ inch deep. Peel your cloves and insert one into each diamond in the ham.

  • Mix the mustard with ½ cup of maple syrup, and rub it over the ham. Pour apple juice into the bottom of the pan. Bake at 325F/160C/gas mark 3 for 1-½ to 2 hours, depending on the size of your ham. Baste frequently. The ham is cooked when a meat thermometer inserted into the middle reads 140F/60C.

  • Remove ham and keep warm. Add the juices from the roasting tin to a saucepan. In a separate bowl, mix cornstarch with 3 tablespoons of water until smooth. Add to saucepan and bring the mixture to a boil. Stir until thickened (around 1 minute).

  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Melt in butter, before adding the apples and the remaining ¼ cup of maple syrup. Cover the skillet and fry for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. To serve, slice your ham, garnish with maple apples, and pour over your gravy.

#14: Spring Chicken Pot Pie

Ingredients

  • 11 oz. sheet puff pastry

  • 3 tbsps. plain flour

  • 4-6 chicken thighs (skinless, boneless)

  • 3 ½ ozs. smoked bacon lardons

  • 7 fl. ozs. chicken stock

  • 3 ½ fl. ozs. white wine (or extra stock)

  • 7 ozs. crème fraîche

  • 1 egg (beaten)

  • 2 leeks (sliced)

  • 3 ½ ozs. podded peas (frozen or fresh)

  • 1½ tbsps. Dijon mustard

  • Small bunch of tarragon (chopped)

Servings: 6

Prep time: 15 minutes               Cook time: 1 hour 5 minutes  

Total time: 1 hour 20 minutes

Recipe

  • Season the chicken thighs with salt and pepper. Warm oil in a large, heavy-based saucepan and add the chicken. Cook until golden (around 3-4 mins on each side). Transfer to a plate and set aside. Add the bacon to the saucepan and fry until golden (around 5 minutes). Add leeks to the pan, and cook for 5 minutes more.

  • Sprinkle flour over the bacon and leeks and mix everything together. Add wine to the pan and simmer for a few minutes, then mix in the chicken stock. Slice the chicken thighs and return them to the pan.

  • Add the peas, crème fraîche, tarragon, and 1 tablespoon of mustard. Simmer for a few more minutes until the sauce has thickened. If the sauce becomes too thick, add water or more chicken stock. Once the filling is thick enough, remove it from the heat.

  • Heat the oven to 400F/200C/gas mark 6. In a bowl, whisk the egg and combine it with the remaining mustard. Transfer the filling to a pie dish with a lip, and brush the sides of the dish with some egg mix. Lay pastry over the top. Crimp the edges of the pastry against the sides of the dish, before cutting off any excess.

  • Brush the rest of the egg mix over the pie. Punch a small hole in the middle of the pie lid. Bake until golden and puffed (around 40 minutes). (Optional) serve with steamed greens, carrots, and buttery new potatoes.

#15: Easter Spinach and Ricotta Pie (Torta Pasqualina)

Ingredients

  • 4 rolls puff pastry

  • 8 eggs

  • 8 tbsps. Parmigiano cheese (grated)

  • 2 cups Ricotta cheese

  • 2 lbs. frozen spinach

  • 4 cloves garlic

  • Nutmeg (ground)

  • Salt

  • Black pepper

Servings: 2

Prep time: 20 minutes               Cook time: 40 minutes               Total time: 1 hour

Recipe

To make the pie’s filling:

  • Add the frozen spinach along with some water to a pot. Cover and bring to a boil. When the spinach begins to thaw, uncover, set to medium heat, and cook for another 2-3 minutes.

  • Cut the garlic cloves in half and add them, along with a drizzle of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper, and a pinch of nutmeg.

  • Keep on medium heat until the water evaporates. Be careful not to let the vegetables stick to the bottom of the pot, removing from the heat occasionally and warming gently if necessary. Once the water has evaporated, remove the mixture and place it in a bowl to cool (around 20 minutes).

  • Once the spinach is cooled, add the Parmigiano, Ricotta, and season again with salt, pepper, and nutmeg if needed. Add 1 egg to the mixture and combine with a fork.

  • In a pot, add 3 eggs and some cold water, and bring to a boil. Once up to temperature, cook the eggs for 3-4 minutes, until they’re soft-boiled. Transfer the eggs to cold water, before peeling them gently.

To assemble the pie:

  • Heat the oven to 375F/190C/gas mark 5.

  • Line a baking pan with parchment paper, and lay in a sheet of pastry.

  • Poke the bottom of the pastry with a fork several times, then add half of the filling. Even the mixture and place in the soft-boiled eggs, before adding the remaining filling on top.

  • Cut out a pan-sized round of puff pastry from your other pastry sheet. Place it on top of your pie. Trim the edges of the pastry until there’s around 1 inch left, and then roll the edges to make a crust.

  • Beat 1 egg and brush it over the pie. Bake on the lowest rack of an oven for 30 minutes, or until golden. Enjoy warm or cold!

#17: Easter Egg Brownies

Ingredients

  • 3 large eggs

  • 6 ½ ozs. unsalted butter (cut into small pieces)

  • 3 ozs. plain flour

  • 9 ½ ozs. golden caster sugar

  • 1 ½ ozs. cocoa powder

  • 6 ½ ozs. dark chocolate (broken apart)

  • 5 ozs. mini chocolate eggs

  • 5 fondant-filled eggs

To decorate:

  • Mini fluffy Easter chicks (optional)

Servings: 10

Prep time: 30 minutes               Cook time: 30 minutes               Total time: 1 hour

Recipe

  • Add your butter and dark chocolate to a medium-sized, heatproof bowl. Place the bowl over a pan of simmering water, stirring occasionally, until the chocolate is melted. Or, you can cover the bowl with saran wrap and microwave the mixture for 30 seconds at a time until melted. Once done, set the melted chocolate aside to cool to room temperature.

  • Preheat the oven to 350F/180C/gas mark 4. Butter a 20cm square baking tin. Then, line it with two long strips of folded parchment paper or foil – one running horizontally across the tin and the other vertically. This will help you remove the brownie when cooked. Line the base with parchment paper as you would normally.

  • Crack your eggs into a large bowl and add the sugar. Set an electric mixer to maximum speed, and whisk the mixture until it’s thick and creamy, and has doubled in size (around 5-8 minutes). Pour over the dark chocolate and combine with a spatula.

  • Using a sieve, sprinkle the flour and cocoa into the wet mixture, gently folding everything together with a spatula as you go. To make sure you don’t over-mix the ingredients, it’s best to stop once everything is combined. 

  • Pour the mixture into your baking tin. Using a spatula, level the top of the brownie. Bake in the center of the oven for 20 minutes.

  • While your brownie cooks, slice the fondant-filled eggs in half and set aside. Crush the mini eggs into fragments with a pestle and mortar, leaving a few mini eggs whole too. 

  • When it’s time, remove your brownie from the oven. Press the fondant egg halves into the top of the cake, filling side up. Sprinkle over half of the mini eggs. Return the brownie to the oven and bake for another 5 minutes.

  • Remove the brownie and top it with the remaining mini eggs. Let it cool to room temperature, and then refrigerate for around 1 hour. Using the parchment paper strips, lift the brownie from the tin. Cut into 10 squares. To serve, place Easter chicks on top (optional).
