3 Easter dinner menu ideas from VG Meats

Easter Sunday is just over a week away, so the VG Meats 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 menu, here are a few dinner ideas to get you started. If you’re hosting Easter brunch instead of dinner, consider grabbing some farm-fresh eggs, peameal bacon, classic pork bacon and other family favourites. We’ve got plenty of delicious breakfast items 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 VG Meats 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 Ontario beef prime rib roast, and Easter is the perfect reason to indulge in this exceptional dish. Our prime rib roasts are available in 21 days aged or 45 and 60 days aged varieties. You can also prepare an aged beef tenderloin roast with delicious results. Just add gravy 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 VG Meats 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 3pm on March 22nd—after this date, purchases can be made on VGFarmToCity.ca until March 26th or in store at our Simcoe or Stoney Creek location. 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!

One more thing before you go—don’t forget that when you order a fresh local turkey from VG Meats this Easter season, you’ll get a coupon for 25% off a case of our bestselling chopped sirloin burgers—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.
