The Easter Bunny is gearing up for his trip and you probably are too! Many RVers take advantage of this holiday to hit their favorite campground and just get away from it all. No matter where you are, Easter dinner is still something we all look forward to and even in your RV kitchen, you can cook up a storm. Here are some amazing Easter dinner recipes for your RV holiday adventure.
SIMPLE CITRUS HAM
Not only does this recipe give your Easter ham a flavor twist, it’s really easy to make. All you need are a few ingredients and a slow cooker and this ham will take care of itself for the most part.
1 (6-7 lb.) bone-in precooked ham
¼ C. honey
¼ C. spicy brown mustard
¼ tsp. ground ginger
¼ tsp. ground cloves
¼ tsp. ground cinnamon
¼ C. orange juice
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
2 Tbsp. lime juice
1 C. ginger ale (we love Vernor’s)
Step 1: Place your ham into a 6-quart slow cooker.
Step 2: In a small bowl, combine the honey, mustard, and spices. Rub over the ham.
Step 3: Pour the citrus juices over the top of the ham.
Step 4: Pour the ginger ale around the base of the ham (not on top).
Step 5: Cook the ham on high for 3 hours or on low for 6 hours. Reduce to the warm setting until you’re ready to serve.
SAVORY SCALLOPED POTATOES
Unlike a lot of recipes that involve cooking the sauce before you can even put the potatoes in the oven, this one just requires warming one part in the microwave for a minute and then pouring the sauce over the top before cooking. The leftovers reheat well and are great with any leftover ham diced up and thrown in.
4 lbs. russet potatoes
½ tsp. onion powder
2 C. heavy cream
1 C. milk
¼ C. flour
¼ tsp. black pepper
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 400° F.
Step 2: Wash and cut potatoes into thin slices.
Step 3: In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the heavy cream and milk, then microwave for one minute. This will make whisking in the flour much easier.
Step 4: Whisk in the onion powder, flour, and black pepper until the mixture is smooth.
Step 5: Layer ⅓ of the sliced potatoes into a greased 9" x 13" pan. Pour ⅓ of the mixture over the potatoes. Repeat twice.
Step 6: Cover the potatoes and bake for 40 minutes. Then uncover and bake for another 20-30 minutes or until potatoes are tender and the top is browned.
GLAZED ORANGE CARROTS
The orange glaze on these carrots goes perfectly with the citrus ham. This is a stovetop recipe so while your ham finishes cooking in the slow cooker and your potatoes are browning in the oven, you can easily whip up this side dish.
1 lb. carrots
1 C. orange juice
1 Tbsp. butter
Salt & pepper to taste
Step 1: Peel and coarsely chop the carrots.
Step 2: Put the carrots, orange juice, butter, salt, and pepper into a large sauce pan and add in enough water to cover the carrots.
Step 3: Bring it to a boil. Then reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 20 minutes or until the carrots are tender and liquid is a glaze consistency.
Now that your Easter dinner is all planned, you can get to the more important things like egg hunts, family, and relaxation. Let us know what part of this dinner was the biggest hit with your family or guests.
