Our Easter baskets are brimming with ‘Goodtaste’! We’re always grateful for a table full of food on Easter Sunday, but especially one with a juicy ham or lamb dish at the center. Scroll for new ham and lamb recipes for sharing with your loved ones this Easter Sunday.
Don’t forget the wine! I’ve found a few Easter Sunday wine finds that you can pick up at your local H-E-B.
Cola Brown Sugar Glazed Ham

We love everything about this ham from Elizabeth Heiskell’s new cookbook, What Can I Bring? Just as its name proclaims, this Cola Brown Sugar Glazed Ham uses a little soda for this exceptionally juicy ham recipe. There’s even a little hint of orange for a delightfully bright twist.
A beautiful ham lunch is definitely worth celebrating with some bubbles! Bring on the Mistinguett Brut Rosé Sparkling– a weekend winner for just $16 at H-E-B.
Racks of Lamb with Whole-Grain Mustard and Apricot Glaze
Apricot preserves make this recipe for racks of lamb absolutely mouthwatering and perfect for spring. Our friends at Cline Cellars in Sonoma make this luxurious Lamb with Whole-Grain Mustard and Apricot Glaze on the grill.
Tangerine-Glazed Easter Ham with Baby Carrots
Keeping in the citrus theme, we love this recipe for a Tangerine Glazed Ham with Baby Carrots. Those bright citrusy flavors give the ham a signature ‘spring’ taste, tasting totally unique from the ham you may have served at Christmas.
Couple those bright spring flavors with Josh Cellars Pinot Gris, a great buy for just $14 at H-E-B.
Marinated Lamb Chops

This dish is all about the meat, with simple ingredients like fresh thyme, garlic and a little ground mustard. My favorite part? The little addition of a little red wine! You can make the marinade for Lamb Chops in minutes. You’ll find this recipe in Valerie Bertinelli’s new cookbook, Valerie’s Home Cooking, where she recommends using the highest quality chop you can find.
Texas Lamb Duo

This perfect pas de deux of lamb, incorporating both lamb chop and lamb shoulder, is from our friends at the Cabernet Grill. It’s served on top of a creamy bed of blue cheese white bean ragout for an especially celebratory centerpiece at Easter. Get the Texas Lamb Duo recipe here.
Slow Roasted Dry-Rubbed Mustard Glazed Ham
Hop to one of our longtime favorite recipes for preparing an impressive ham with your handy slow cooker. This juicy Slow Roasted Dry-Rubbed Mustard Glazed Ham from Phyllis Goods’ Stock The Crock uses a blend of spices to create a moist and flavorful ham that cooks up happily in your crockpot.
It’s a great time of year for Rosé wine and I’m a new fan of the Fleurs de Prairie Côtes de Provence Rosé, a gorgeous new wine at H-E-B for about $17 a bottle.
