Easter Cooking with Del Monte #10minutewow

I love a good excuse to cook for a crowd: birthday parties, holidays, summer barbeques.  It's a great time to combine tried and true recipes with some exciting new ones.  With Easter coming up, I am gathering recipes and ingredients to make some delicious sides to go with the huge dinner my mom is preparing.

Ham is always on our menu at Easter, so corn casserole is a must.  Over the years, I've tried several variations on the recipe.  This year I'm planning to make Del Monte's Cheddar Corn Casserole.  It combines sweet corn with savory flavors to create a rich dish, perfect for the holiday table.  Thankfully for us, there are lots of vegan cheeses and gluten free stir-ins I can substitute in the recipe to make it a dish all of us can enjoy.

If lamb is on your menu, Del Monte has a recipe for Peas 5 Ways, that is easy to customize to ensure a great pairing.  The Asian-style sweet peas, with teriyaki and almonds, sounds like it would be a hit in our house.

Making salmon for Easter?  Try Del Monte's Lemon-Garlic Green Beans with Crispy Crumbs.  It's a lighter alternative to green bean casserole, using lemon juice, garlic, and bread crumbs.

There's only a few days left until Easter, but Del Monte has your side dishes covered with their #10minutewow recipes.  Easy to make and minimal ingredients, they'll help you serve a delicious Easter lunch with plenty of time left to hunt Easter eggs with your little ones.
