Put Together an Easter Feast


Whether you are making an Easter feast at home or you are visiting relatives for the holiday, make sure your vehicle is running great by bringing it in to SouthTowne Motors for service or a checkup. Even if you are staying home, you’ll probably have to hit the grocery store or the department store before the holiday and you need to be sure that everything goes smoothly and with no hitches.


For appetizers, make your favorite deviled egg recipe. Instead of cutting the eggs in half with a straight cut, use a sharp knife to make small V shapes all around the edge. When you pull it apart to remove the yolk, you’ll have a decorative serrated edge. Garnish the eggs with parsley, chopped chives or paprika – or a combination of them – for some color.

Main Course and Sides

For the main course, prepare the ham by sprinkling a liberal layer of brown sugar over the top. Place pineapple rings all over the top of the ham. Use toothpicks to hold the in place. Place a half of a Maraschino cherry in the center of each pineapple ring. Finally, stick whole cloves in the ham. Use at least 15 cloves for a 10-pound or larger ham. Bake as directed or according to your favorite baked ham recipe.

When making mashed potatoes, boil the potatoes until they are soft. Drain them thoroughly. Put them back into the cooking pot. Add milk, butter, salt, pepper and garlic – about a stick of butter for 5 pounds of potatoes, garlic, salt and pepper are to taste, and the milk is to get the texture you like. Put the pot on the hot burner and mash everything together. Garnish the potatoes with parsley.

Depending on the number of people you expect, you may want to make two or three different vegetables. Make something common and easy – corn, for example, for the finicky eaters. You can also make carrots, broccoli and cauliflower with cheese sauce or Brussels sprouts with cheese sauce.
