INTRODUCTION

Yesterday I wrote a similar article:

And I promised a sequel. So here it is. And here is a similar introduction.

Easter is... well, tomorrow! Whether you celebrate this as a religious holiday, are only in it for gifts and family, or don't celebrate it at all, we all love the season of marshmallow peeps, Cadbury eggs, jellybeans, baked carrots, and other sweet and savory snacks. My last article was for sweet recipes, so for those of you who prefer meats over sweets, here are two of my favorite savory recipes for Easter!

NOTE 1: I do not own any of these recipes, nor are they sponsored by the creator. But I can tell you one thing: They are me approved!

NOTE 2: I tried to make these recipes accessible and easy for everyone, so they are in metric and customary form, and they have information on calories, common allergens, and if the recipe is vegan. Please forgive me if my customary to metric conversions were wrong, I used an online table and I have no clue how accurate it is! If something is terribly wrong, just send me a postcard, and I will fix it ASAP. I would love feedback!
