If you are looking for the best country ham for Easter, you are in luck. I just made the most fantastic meal using all Omaha Steaks products and it simply wowed my family. But enough about them, let’s talk about me – the COOK. I want to tell you all about the time you will save in the kitchen and how you won’t sacrifice any flavor or quality. That is a MEGA WIN and one that you cannot beat.
As a mom… let me rephrase that… as a busy mom of three who runs her own business but still wants to make sure that she puts a great meal out for her children every single night, I am always looking for lifesavers. And you know what? Omaha Steaks has been just that for many years now. I’m lucky enough to have one of their stores pretty close by to my home and I frequent it all the time. The deals I find whenever I do are pretty incredible.
The Best Country Ham For Easter
When I started to think about Easter and what I wanted my day to look like, I knew that I wanted most of it to be spent with the people that I love. Holidays are many things, and the hostess usually doesn’t get to experience any of them. Hey! I’m just being honest, here.
So, when I put together my shopping list, I decided to put together an Omaha Steaks holiday instead and opted for a Country Ham that melted my tastebuds and made Bill propose to me again. Is that strange? That my husband is easily swayed by pork? Whatever – that’s why I love him.
I wanted to do a test run before the big day when I plan on inviting over my mother, grandmother, and a few cousins. And I am so glad that I did because the menu I put together was simply divine! In case you are in need of some inspiration for your Easter menu, here is my official breakdown. Perhaps, you’d like to make an Omaha Steaks holiday of your own. LOL!
It all begins with that Country ham. Omaha Steaks offers up a Duroc Country Ham Dinner (click here to check it out) which retails for 79.99. Here’s everything that comes within that package:
- Duroc Boneless Country Ham (5 lbs.)
- Tri-Color Potatoes in Brown Butter Sauce (22 oz. pkg.)
- 2 (9.5 oz. pkgs.) Brussels Sprouts with Bacon & Shallots
- Two-Layer Carrot Cake (30 oz.)
Omaha Steaks’ Country Ham Is Heat And Serve
What’s great about the Country Ham is that it is a heat and serve. You can keep it in the freezer until the day before your guests are set to arrive. Then you need to let it defrost in your refrigerator for around 24 hours prior to heating. Since you are truly just heating the product, you won’t spend as much time in the kitchen which means that you get to spend more time with grandma! Yeah – total win!!
Even my side dishes came from Omaha Steaks this year and they were all insanely delicious! Oh, my word! Brussels sprouts with bacon and shallots? Who could say no to that? Nobody that’s invited into my home. That’s who! And what holiday isn’t complete with a side dish of potatoes? Since it’s Easter we get to indulge a bit. So, I opted for potatoes that were covered in brown butter sauce. They were as good as they sound. Truly.
To round out the entire evening, we gave a little nod to the Easter Bunny and brought out two-layer carrot cake that the children devoured. I just LOVE carrot cake and for some reason, I only eat it during this time of the year. Easter! It’s such a great flavor… I don’t know why it’s not more of a year-round dessert? I feel like I want to change that.
At the end of the night, the kids cleared up the plates and we all decided that ham needs to be on the menu more often.
Think About The Leftovers
If you have any ham left, don’t forget about all the delicious sandwiches you can make during the week! Or if you’d like, you could also make a beautiful ham soup or a quiche. More of a salad person after a heavy dinner? Dice up your ham and throw it into your favorite bed of greens. Don’t want to wait for lunch? How about tossing some into your morning omelet. Ham is super versatile! There are plenty of recipes that you can make using leftover ham. The options are limitless.
