Show Me How 2: Celebrate a Family Easter
The Perfect Family Easter
I don’t know about you but when our family gets together we always have a big meal, especially when it’s to celebrate a special holiday like Easter! Here’s my delicious family celebration menu. Our traditional Easter lunch is centered around my famous brisket, a twice baked potato casserole, yummy green bean casserole and Sister Schubert’s Rolls (almost as good as mom’s). I don’t know what the Sister does, but her rolls are just so amazing!
Here’s my famous brisket recipe! The recipe is so simple, people don’t believe me when I share it with them, but take my word for it, it is!
This delicious brisket recipe is just like our Christmas decorating recipes; easy & quick and you can do it!
Spray pan with Pam before placing trimmed brisket, fat side up in the pan. I like to use disposable baking pans for easy cleanup!
Cover brisket with heavy duty aluminum foil (Reynolds) and seal tightly. Place in a pre-heated 250-300 degree oven on middle shelf. Cook for 8-9 hours, depending on your size of brisket.
After cooking, remove brisket from oven being careful not to slosh the liquid. Carefully open foil to release steam and heat, then allow brisket to rest, loosely covered.
Next, remove the top layer of fat and discard, place the brisket on a cutting board and use an electric knife for perfect slices! Pour off 1/2 of the liquid and discard. Return sliced brisket back into pan (or fancy serving dish) and top off with your favorite bottled BBQ sauce. Cover with foil until ready to eat. You may want to reheat slightly.

Show Me Decorating Tip: Plan a make ahead menu for large family gatherings. This brisket recipe is great prepared the day before and cooked overnight. Most vegetable casseroles can be made the day before and refrigerated until ready to heat and serve. Ask family members to bring a salad and desserts!
We finish off with an Easter egg hunt and fun desserts!
We love to celebrate Easter with the eggs, candy, rabbits and new clothes, but the real celebration is life. Life given to us because Christ is Alive!!
