Easter is just around the corner! Do you have any plans, yet? We normally like to go out for a nice Easter brunch, but this year we think it’ll be pretty low-key at home with some of our favorite recipes made with our favorite pre-cut Easter products. We’ll give you the lowdown on what some of the must-have Crazy Fresh items are for the ultimate Easter brunch, dinner or just snack!
1. Cored Pineapple
Pineapple is the staple at any Easter meal. It’s the ultimate spring fruit, and honestly, how could you not enjoy the sweet and tangy flavor?! You can use Cored Pineapple in a variety of ways: cut into spears as a snack, sliced into rings and grilled, chopped into chunks and sautéed in a pan – the possibilities are endless! While we currently sell a pineapple salsa, you could also make your own with the cored pineapple.
Some of our favorite recipes to use cored pineapple in include:
2. Butternut Squash Chunks
We love butternut squash, but absolutely hate the time, effort, and strength it takes to cut through one of those bad boys. That’s why our Short Cuts Butternut Squash Chunks are the most amazing fresh-cut Easter product! These already come in the perfect size pieces for your favorite recipes, therefore saving you so much time in the kitchen. Because Easter can still be on the cold side (fingers crossed we’re done with snow, though!) we think squash is a great addition to your holiday spread.
If it’s still cold outside and you want something hearty for dinner, we suggest trying our Butternut Squash Stew. Or, if you’re feeling something more sweet, try substituting the sweet potatoes for squash in our Candied Sweet Potato recipe. Either way, we think you’re going to love the ease of this squash!
3. Taco Dip
Now comes the good stuff – Taco Dip. No matter if you’re having a nice sit-down meal, a buffet brunch or just grazing, this is an absolute must-have at your Easter celebration. This dip is one of our best sellers, and for very good reason. We make this dip with all the zesty, creamy flavors you love, and top it with the crunch of green onion, more cheddar cheese than you can imagine, black olives and tomatoes. It’s the best combination of flavors you could imagine.
While this dip is amazing on it’s own with Gorilla Chips, we also like to use it in our Taco Cups recipe. Let us know if you have any fun ways you enjoy Taco Dip besides as the traditional dip with chips!
4. Veggie Bowl
Everyone loves veggies, but no one wants to be stuck in the kitchen prepping all of them for their guests. Our Fresh Value Veggie Bowl is the best option for your Easter party. We packed this full of fresh-cut broccoli, cauliflower, celery, carrots and radishes. We recommend it to anyone who doesn’t want to show up empty-handed to their Easter host’s house.
Our Veggie Bowl is meant for snacking with your favorite veggie dip. Just simply open the container, and let everyone have at it! What’s your favorite veggie in this mix?
5. Fruit Bowl
Now here is the real star of the show – our Fresh Fruit Value Bowl! If you don’t like cutting up veggies, then we can also guess you really don’t like cutting full melons and pineapple. This bowl makes fresh fruit snacking extremely easy. We cut pineapple, honeydew, cantaloupe and strawberries fresh for this bowl every day, ensuring you and your Easter guests only have the freshest fruit available for snacking.
Bring this as a nice host gift when arriving for Easter brunch, or have it at your own table to offer your guests. Either way, our Fruit Bowl makes an easy, healthy party snack everyone will enjoy!
