Ham and Easter go together like Easter and Easter eggs. Even better, ham is naturally low in carbs. These new ham recipes can be the star of your Easter dinner, plus you’ll love the colorful rainbow carrot salad that celebrates spring. And don’t forget to leave room for dessert!
The Low Carb Easter Dinner Menu
The Easter bunny loves carrots, and for a good reason. They are packed with antioxidants and vitamins and are rich in fiber. This rainbow carrot salad provides beautiful color for your Easter table, while arugula and radishes bring a fresh flavor. The salad is tossed with a tahini-lemon juice dressing, and pistachios add crunch.
“Hasselback” refers to slicing food, so the cuts don’t go through. This technique enhances the dish’s visual appeal and helps with even cooking. In this unique and colorful variation of an Easter ham, a spinach and cream cheese mixture is layered between ham, sliced tomatoes, and layers of melty Gruyere cheese and drizzled with a melted butter-shallot sauce.
Elevate your Easter ham with this scrumptious maple syrup glaze infused with orange zest and the sweet spices of ginger, cinnamon and cloves. If you have leftovers, you can transform them into broccoli, ham and Swiss cheese casserole, a classic ham salad, ham and Swiss cheese frittata, crustless pumpkin, and ham quiche, ham and spinach egg bake, or easy ham roll-ups.
Indulge in your cravings for Easter candy with these apple “nachos”, which are drizzled with a peanut-buttery-caramel sauce and feature serious chocolatey crunch from Atkins Endulge Chocolate Peanut Candies and Atkins Endulge Milk Chocolate Caramel Squares.
