40 Easy Easter Casseroles & Recipe Ideas
Whether you’re cooking for a crowd or need something to bring to the in-laws, these Easter casserole recipes are a terrific addition to any holiday feast.
And while most are ideal for dinner, there’s a few breakfast recipes on this list. Plus a couple of sides that go great with ham or lamb.
So, pick something you think your family will love, and let’s get cooking!
1. Pineapple Casserole
Pineapple casserole? Say what?!
Although it sounds unusual, this seven-ingredient casserole couldn’t be more alluring.
It’s sweet and fruity, with lots of buttery crackers for crunch. But it’s also cheesy.
If you like Hawaiian pizza, you’ll totally get it. And it goes great with Easter ham!
2. Cheesy Potato Casserole
Also known as funeral potatoes (though that name isn’t super Easter-y, is it?), this potato casserole will pair well with any meat entrée.
It’s chock-full of cheesy, creamy potatoes and has the most to-die-for crispy Cornflake topping.
A lot of the flavor comes from cream of chicken soup. And feel free to swap out the cheese to make it your own!
3. Blueberry French Toast Casserole
Start your holiday morning on a sweet note with this stunning blueberry casserole.
Make it the night before Easter, so the stale bread has time to soak up all that sweet custard.
Then bake first thing and cover with that yummy blueberry sauce. Easy peasy!
4. Ina Garten Mac and Cheese
Don’t just make a side of mac and cheese for the holiday – make a casserole that’s fit for a king!
Elbow macaroni, milk, butter, and flour are pretty standard ingredients.
But Ina makes this one extra special with Gruyère and extra sharp cheddar. Plus, there’s nutmeg in the mix and plenty of crunchy breadcrumbs on top.
It’s cheesy, rich, and hands-down the best!
5. Overnight Ham and Cheese Strata
Leave the stuffing to Thanksgiving because Easter is all about strata.
And this version could not be more fitting!
Each bite has a savory blend of bread, bell peppers, tomatoes, eggs, ham, and cheese.
It’s a make-ahead dish that requires a bit of prep work the night before. But then you just pop it in the oven when you wake up.
6. Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Strata
If you want something a little more kid-friendly, try this version.
You’ll combine all the best breakfast staples into one showstopping casserole. Easter or not, this breakfast strata will feed a crowd.
It’s a fantastic way to repurpose day-old baguettes, too. And everyone in the family will devour every last bite.
7. Crab Casserole
This sweet, cheesy, and savory crab casserole is a lovely appetizer or side dish for Easter.
It’s super fresh, meaty, and great with a few buttery crackers.
But it’s also a terrific dinner option for anyone steering clear of meat. So if you have someone who doesn’t eat ham, make this instead!
8. Spinach and Cheese Strata
If you haven’t noticed yet, I seriously love strata. But can you blame me?
At the base, it has eggs, bread, and cheese – three of my favorite things! And it’s an easy make-ahead meal, which is always a plus.
This version features spinach, garlic, and onions. So it’s green, flavorful, and filling.
9. Spring Vegetable Casserole
Easter is a celebration of spring. So why not make a casserole loaded with fresh spring vegetables?
From the sweet potatoes and carrots to the asparagus, green beans, and egg noodles, it’s colorful, textural, and scrumptious.
Serve this with baked ham, and everyone will ask for seconds.
10. French’s Green Bean Casserole
Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving – I bust this side dish out at pretty much every holiday dinner.
Made with just four ingredients, it takes boring old green beans and gives them a new life.
I mean, how can you beat cheese, mushroom soup, and crispy onions?
11. Paula Deen Breakfast Casserole
Instead of making eggs and sausages for a big group, make this simple breakfast casserole instead.
It starts with bread, over which you’ll scatter cooked pork sausage meat and shredded cheese.
Then comes a savory egg custard with mustard and even more cheese. Delish!
12. Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole
Holidays are about building memories with the family. And nothing draws everyone together quite like tater tot casserole.
It’s similar to the recipe above. But instead of bread, the bottom layer is jam-packed with tasty tots.
Kids and adults will agree, this is a new tradition worth starting.
13. Paula Deen’s Corn Casserole
Here’s another incredible side dish the kids will love.
Overflowing with sweet corn and cheese, it couldn’t be easier to whip up.
Just mix corn kernels with creamed corn and sour cream. Then add butter and corn muffin mix.
It’s like an extra textural cornbread pudding. And I love it!
14. Scalloped Potatoes and Ham Casserole
Try this recipe if you want to include ham in your Easter dinner but don’t want to cook a whole piece.
Between the potatoes, cheese, and salty ham, it’s a whole meal in one. And you can use any ham you like – even leftovers.
Add a salad on the side, and dinner is served.
15. Cheesy Spinach & Mushroom Casserole
Whether you’re looking to add greens to your meal or have vegetarians coming over, this spinach and mushroom casserole is just the ticket.
It’s kind of like spinach dip with onions, garlic, spinach, and cheese.
But you’ll also add eggs and mushrooms to bulk it out.
16. The Easiest, Cheesiest Brussels Sprout Casserole
Brussels sprouts have never looked so enticing!
Smothered in Gruyère, cream, mustard, and cayenne, this casserole will have even the biggest sprout hater asking for another serving.
Feel free to leave out the bacon if you need it veggie-friendly. But know it will lose some salty goodness, so taste and add more as needed.
17. Shrimp and Crab Seafood Casserole
Make this year’s Easter dinner a seafood feast!
The ingredients list is a little bit long, but there’s nothing too wild on there. Maybe you don’t have water chestnuts, but you’ll likely have the rest!
Full of rice, veggies, spices, shrimp, and crab meat, will dish will outshine any ham or lamb dinner.
18. King Ranch Chicken Casserole
Hailing from the vast Longhorn state, this King Ranch casserole is a whopper!
It’s got 11 layers, including juicy chicken and plenty of cheese. So you know this will feed a hungry crowd after an egg hunt.
Use leftover rotisserie chicken, and it’s ready in a flash!
19. Creamy Lemon Chicken and Rice Casserole
Lemon chicken is a springtime fave in my house. And this chicken and rice casserole is one of my go-to’s.
Sear the chicken, then pop it into a casserole dish with the rice and liquids.
That all cooks together, so the broth infuses into the meat, and the rice soaks up all the juices. Delish!
20. Baked Cream Cheese French Toast Casserole
Because you can’t have too many tasty breakfast casseroles, here’s one with cream cheese and a cinnamon crumb topping.
Like the French toast recipe above, it’s best made the night before. That way, the bread will be super tender and custardy.
It’s kind of like cream cheese coffee cake. So take the biggest piece and chow down!
21. Beef Enchilada Casserole
Liven up your Easter dinner with this beef enchilada casserole.
Savory, cheese, and hearty to the max, it’s the kind of scrumptious dish that’ll leave everyone speechless – because they’ll be too busy eating!
You’ll find black beans, cheddar cheese, green chilis, tortillas, and ground beef in every bite.
And guess what? It’s got a double layer of everything!
22. Paula Deen’s Squash Casserole
Even though this calls for summer squash, you’ll find it year-round in most places.
And that lovely yellow works so well with an Easter dinner, don’t you think?
That said, you can use any squash here, and it’ll be scrummy.
23. Ham Casserole with Broccoli and Rice
Full of salty ham, crunchy broccoli, tender rice, and a savory sauce, this one is a surefire hit.
Comforting and homey, it’s a simple dish, but it’ll please any crowd.
I typically make it the day after Easter with leftovers. But it’s impressive enough for the big day too!
