As the fasting and penance of Lent wears off, it’s time to prepare for the grand feast of Easter! Now we all know the drill — butter lamb, Easter Ham, boiled eggs and hot cross buns are probably high on your list of to make. But if you have been trying this for a while now then how about trying something different this time? After all, variety is the spice of life! We scoured the net for some creative Easter recipes that you can try out. This is especially a good idea if you are planning to have some people over.
So without further ado, here are some ideas to try out this Easter…
Chocolate French Toast with Vitality Sauce
Giving you a vital shot of vitamins and minerals, this tasty French toast is a great side dish for your Easter party. The dish takes about 5 minutes to prepare, and its preparation is quite similar to a regular French Toast, only you need to add cocoa, cinnamon and milk to the eggs before dipping the toasts in it. The sauce itself is very easy to prepare too.

OK, so not one of our most creative suggestions, but can we even have Easter without some sort of boiled eggs? While most deviled egg recipes only require you to mix some quick seasoning with the yolk and fill it back in, here you will also be adding hot sauce, mayonnaise, smoked paprika among other things to amp up the taste!
