Looking for Easter dinner ideas, but don’t want to spend all day (or week?) coming up with the big meal from scratch? A number of restaurants have put together special meal deals for Easter, available for pickup or delivery.
Enjoy the simplicity of a really good Easter dinner with pickup and delivery options from these restaurants (ranked by price):
Kroger Easter Dinner – $7.14/person
Pickup these Easter meals and pay in-store between March 24-April 4, 2021. Then, heat the precooked items and you’re ready to go.

Schwan’s Easter Dinner – as low as $7.49/person
The frozen food home delivery company is offering two Easter dinners delivered free, which can be ordered from Schwan’s website.
The Easter Ham Feast serves 8-10 and costs $95.33 (or $74.99 if you buy it through Costco). It includes 8.5 lbs of ham, 2.5 lbs each of mashed potatoes and corn, 36 oz of green peas, 18 dinner rolls, and two 10-inch pies.

Boston Market Easter Dinner – as low as $9.99/person
The restaurant is offering meal kits nationwide for home delivery, but their ham meals have sold out already. The home-cooking chain does still have the following Easter meals available (while supplies last, order by 7AM EDT on Monday, March 29):
- Complete Boneless Roasted Turkey Breast Meal for 4-6 – $99.99
- Essential Whole Roasted Turkey Meal for 12 – $119.99
- Whole Roasted Turkey Meal for 12 – $139.99
Click the links to see exactly what each meal comes with, but expect plenty of sides like mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, dinner rolls and in some cases, dessert.
You just thaw the frozen items, heat, and serve in just 2 hours.
If you’re still wanting that ham meal, call your local Boston Market ASAP to see if they have one available for pickup, or as part of a catered meal. Sadly, last year’s offer of free shipping doesn’t exist in 2021; each meal costs an additional $25 to ship.
