3 Easter menu ideas from Rowe Farms

3 Easter menu ideas from Rowe Farms

Easter Sunday is just over a week away, and the Rowe Farms 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. If you’re hosting Easter brunch instead of an evening meal, consider grabbing some farm-fresh eggs, peameal bacon, classic pork bacon and other family favourites. We’ve got plenty of delicious breakfast options to choose from in store and online! Now back to dinner—if you’d like personalized recommendations or help placing your holiday pre-order, please contact us—we’d be glad to help.

1. 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 Rowe Farms 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.

2. 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! We have country-style and Black Forest varieties available. Here are a few recipes to help inspire your menu, starting with a classic side dish.

3. Prime rib with elegant side dishes

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

A few quick Easter reminders

Now that you’ve got your Easter dinner planned, here are a few practical reminders from the Rowe Farms team. First, please visit our holiday website to pre-order your turkey, ham or roast if you haven’t already—this ensures that you get the products you want in the size/weight you need for your holiday dinner. Our holiday website will be accepting pre-orders until March 26th—after this date, purchases can be made in store. As in-store availability will be limited, we strongly recommend placing a pre-order to avoid disappointment. If you have any questions or require assistance, just ask! We'd be glad to help.

One more thing before you go—don’t forget that when you order a fresh local turkey from Rowe Farms this Easter season, you’ll get a coupon for 50% off a package of our delicious grass-fed sirloin burgers (8 patties per package)—just in time for BBQ season. This offer applies to anyone who orders a fresh whole turkey (including our ReadySetRoast turkeys) by April 2, 2024. Coupons will be sent by email on April 5th and be valid until May 19, 2024. Consider it a token of appreciation for shopping local this Easter! Thanks and enjoy your holiday weekend.
