8 Appetizers For Easter That Will Start Your Holiday On a Delicious Note

Smoked Gouda and Pepper Cheese Puffs: Cheese puffs go with almost any main entrée and everyone likes them. Each puff has smoked Gouda and freshly ground black pepper, making it a tasty snack for visitors.

Crispy Falafel Bites: Your guests will love these crunchy falafel patties. Creamy homemade tzatziki complements the nibbles' hot serrano pepper. These crispy, crunchy treats make a great Easter appetizer.

Fish Antipasto Board: If charcuterie is your favorite starter, try this fish antipasto platter. Its star is the rich, thick smoked trout spread, which can be cooked up to three days in advance and comes together quickly.

Cacio e Pepe Deviled Eggs: Start Easter with a traditional meal with a twist. Instead of making regular deviled eggs, you'll add some tasty changes. Mix hard-cooked egg yolks with Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise, then add umami-packed cheese and fresh pepper.

Carrot Hummus: Carrots don't generally go with hummus, but they provide more color than chickpeas and are excellent for an Easter presentation. This variation involves processing cooked carrots with tahini, lemon juice, and garlicky olive oil.

Black-Eyed Pea Salad: This delicious salad uses a can of black-eyed peas and cauliflower rice with collard greens. The combination of fresh cherry tomatoes and ready-to-eat Canadian bacon makes this meal a satisfying appetizer.

Hot Honey Lamb Meatballs: Lamb is a popular Easter protein, but this 35-minute appetizer is a fantastic way to include it in your holiday table if you're serving something different. Sriracha, honey, and powdered coriander make a powerful sweet-and-spicy.

Easter Bread: Easter bread is bright and festive in Greek and Italian homes. The pastry is braided bread packed with orange zest and rum-soaked dried fruit. The bread has colored eggs for color, but you may remove them before slicing.
