With Easter right around the corner, it’s time to be thinking about what to serve alongside your Easter Ham. All of the recipes below would be wonderful additions to your main dishes. I have you covered with vegetables, potatoes, salads, and homemade rolls. These side dishes are also great to have on hand for any dinners that need just a little something extra added to the menu. 

Favorite Sides

As a seasoned Easter host, I can confidently say that these are my absolute favorites. From warm and buttery biscuits to tangy deviled eggs, your guests are in for a real treat. With these mouth-watering side dishes on your Easter table, your guests won’t be disappointed.

Ranch Mushrooms

Ranch Mushrooms are a rich, flavorful side dish or appetizer made with butter, white button mushrooms, and ranch seasoning mix. So good they can be served on their own!


Vegetable side dishes are often served at Easter because they are a delicious and healthy way to complement the main course. In addition, they are a great way to balance out the richer, heavier main courses.


We can’t forget about potatoes at Easter. From sweet potatoes to mashed potatoes to scalloped potatoes, they will all satisfy your guests’ taste buds!


Dill Pickle Roasted Potato Salad

Dill Pickle Roasted Potato Salad is dill-seasoned roasted potatoes mixed in with tangy dill pickles, crispy bacon, eggs, red onions, and a creamy dressing. It’s a delicious and unique variation of my Favorite Roasted Potato Salad. And when I say delicious, I am not kidding! Once you taste the difference roasting potatoes make in a potato salad, you will never boil the potatoes again!

Salads are typically light and refreshing, which can be a welcome contrast to heavier, richer main dishes served. Plus, they are a great way to incorporate fresh, seasonal produce, which is often abundant during the springtime.
