Poll: What Do You Eat on Easter?

by | Apr. 17, 2014



Every family does Easter their own way. It’s not like Christmas where a tree, stockings, and presents are all expected to be in the house by December 25th. Some families do an Easter egg hunt. Some do a candy hunt. Some families eat a honey-glazed ham. Some eat potato salad. Some families eat funeral potatoes. And some don’t. (And those people are just plain crazy.)

My family is definitely a ham-and-potatoes-on-Easter kind of family. Without fail, there is a Honey-Baked Ham and funeral potatoes (or sometimes potato salad if there’s time) on the table for every Easter dinner. I thought this a most appropriately delicious Easter meal. And that’s why I was so surprised when a coworker told me that turkey—not ham—was the norm for Easter. But after that, another coworker piped up, saying that roast beef was the way to go . . . Really? A roast-beef Easter? Inconceivable. 

So it dawned on me: what do Mormons really eat for their Easter feast? Take the poll below and tell us the menu for your perfect Easter dinner.
