Easter dinner-what to cook?

I was wondering what you are cooking for Easter Sunday dinner? I've run out of ideas and would appreciate suggestions. I'm crossing out beef options as we are going out for a steak dinner on Monday. Thank you

Re: Easter dinner-what to cook?

I'm cooking lamb - no great significance - was just on special offer in coop. I would have done a turkey if such things were available. Will be rhubarb pie for pud.

Re: Easter dinner-what to cook?

Sounds like a good suggestion. What cut of lamb is it and do you have a tested recipe? I've never made lamb. Thanks!

Half a baby lamb, half a baby goat, a rack of ribs.

Plus stuff on the side.

Re: Easter dinner-what to cook?

What about having brunch rather than dinner? Omelettes or breakfast casserole, deviled eggs, quickbreads, pastries, muffins, finger sandwiches, fruit salad, mimosas, bloody marys?

(It is making me hungry just to type this reply! )

I love goat! Might have to try and persuade my OH to move to Ticino!
Anything I make tomorrow is just not going to be anywhere near as good!

Well, as the Manor here can order it, I would think the Manor in Zurich can as well.

I always order a week ahead, just to be sure, but generally it takes less. I also get my turkeys and suckling pigs from them.

Anyway, goat is very common for Easter in the Swiss-German part too, it should be easy to find.

I've got it all in the smoker, as we're going to friends tonight and tomorrow, so I'm cooking it here (for 5 hours or so).

Re: Easter dinner-what to cook?

It's called Gitzi up there, capretto around here.

If you do get some, long and slow is the way to cook it, I go 100-120C in my smoker for 5 hours or so, could do the same in an oven.

Isn't it obvious? ....... rabbit - but you have to get up early to catch him.

I think the OP was refering to a full Turkey (such as on Thanksgiving and Christmas), not turkey breasts. I don't know if they have them all year, but at Christmas time, I saw Migros had full sized frozen Turkeys We're going to the inlaws.... so no idea what the Swiss do for Easter lunch/dinner
