3 Easter menu ideas from Olliffe

Easter Sunday is just over a week away, so the Olliffe team is busy preparing all of your holiday orders. We’re also looking forward to some delicious local food and quality time with our own families over the holiday weekend. We hope that whatever your plans are, you get to enjoy the same!

As you plan your Easter dinner, here are a few ideas to get you started. You can also peruse our Easter menu on our website or speak to one of our expert butchers in store. For personalized recommendations or assistance, please contact us—we’d be glad to help.

A classic roast turkey dinner

Whether it’s Christmas, Thanksgiving or Easter, you can’t go wrong with a classic roast turkey dinner with all of the fixings. Start with a fresh whole Ontario turkey from Olliffe or one of our innovative ReadySetRoast turkeys that have been expertly de-boned for your convenience. Make sure you’ve prepared stuffing and gravy (or ordered them from our prepared foods menu). Finally, make some creamy mashed potatoes and a few side dishes. Here are some recipe links to inspire you.

Smoked ham with scalloped potatoes

Many families enjoy a smoked ham for Easter dinner every year, and with good reason—it’s a delicious, easy-to-prepare meal that the whole family will love. This year, we have country-style smoked ham and Black Forest hams available. Here are a few recipes to help inspire your menu, starting with a classic side dish.

Prime rib with elegant side dishes

There’s nothing like a delectable aged prime rib roast shared with family and friends. We also love an Ontario beef tenderloin roast on a holiday Sunday, or a Frenched pork rib roast. And that’s only a few of the delicious roasts we have available—you can take your pick! We recommend serving these dishes with gravy, fresh dinner rolls and a few elevated side dishes—here are some suggestions.

Final reminders–and a special offer
