Easter Dinner Leftovers Casserole

What’s better than all of the individual items on the Easter dinner spread? Why, combining them all into one dish of course! Food Network has a recipe for anyone that loves a good casserole and/or quiche! The filling consists of that leftover baked ham you don’t know what to do with, as well as kale, carrots, eggs, and a few other ingredients. What’s our favorite part of this recipe? The mashed potato crust that works as the base of the casserole! Our mouths are watering at just the thought of this scrumptious dish!

Skillet Shepherd’s Pie

Lamb is another popular main dish to serve on Easter Sunday. Skillet Shepherd’s Pie is the perfect answer to that lamb you have leftover from dinner. While this specific recipe calls for ground beef, if you have lamb leftover from Easter dinner, you can absolutely substitute it! This dish contains lots of scrumptious ingredients like mashed potatoes, cheddar cheese, veggies, and lots of flavor from spices like rosemary and thyme! We guarantee you this recipe will bring new life to those leftovers you may already be tired of eating!

Thanks to Valerie’s Kitchen for coming up with this delicious creation!

The Ultimate Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Leftover hard boiled eggs are common to have sitting in your fridge after celebrating Easter. Many would think to go with your traditional egg salad sandwich, and while we do love a good egg salad, we wanted to go with something different. Thankfully, The Pioneer Woman has just the recipe to change it up! This grilled cheese is no joke! She stuffed this sandwich full of mouthwatering ingredients like bacon, caramelized onions, hard boiled eggs, and the list goes on! This is the perfect sandwich for your day-after-Easter lunch, so give it a try and let us know what you think!

Candylicious Junkyard Cookies

Did the Easter Bunny bring a little too much candy that you don’t know what to do with? No worries! Mr. Clean Can found a recipe for cookies that combines all of your candy favorites into one delicious dessert! These Candylicious Junkyard Cookies, created by Meagan with A Zesty Bite, are the perfect answer to your leftover piles of Easter candy. She uses speckled M & M’s, KitKats, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, and Butterfingers in this recipe, but we’re sure you could substitute basically any leftover chocolate candies you have lying around.
