When you’ve got a slow-cooker ham that practically makes itself (tangy fruit glaze and all!), that frees up time to try a new twist on Easter’s most irresistible side—cheesy au gratin potatoes. Instead of the usual casserole presentation, break out your muffin tin for cute single-servings and brace yourself for an onslaught of compliments.

Pair with our four-ingredient, 40-minute potato packet and you’re well on your way to an unforgettable Easter feast!

If there’s a better way to start Easter Sunday than with this brunch, we don’t know what it is. This perfectly moist ham is cooked in a mouthwatering maple-brown sugar glaze than turns into the most amazing sauce to serve on the side. Serve with creamy, white cheddar scalloped potatoes that taste every bit as good as they look.

9.  Riesling Peach Glazed Ham + Cheesy Crunchy Broccoli Scalloped Potato Casserole

Each of these recipes is a delightful twist on an Easter classic, which naturally makes them a perfect pair. For the ham, we’re spicing things up with Riesling wine and peach preserves, and for the potatoes, we’re adding serious crunch factor with broccoli and a cheese cracker crust (looking at you Cheez-Its).

slow cooker southern style ham and sweet potato gratin

10.  Slow-Cooker Southern-Style Ham + Sweet Potato Gratin

A little planning leads to grand flavors in this laid-back pairing. The long, slow cook time of our Southern-style ham enhances the flavor tenfold, while a slightly longer-than-average bake time allows the sweet potato gratin develop the most amazing golden crust.
