Easter is a very special time for our family. We enjoy spending time together, going to church, and yes, even hunting eggs! After church on Easter, we love to sit down with a delicious Easter meal, which usually includes a ham, vegetables, and bread. I am always on the lookout for simple, easy to prepare foods that aren't full of unhealthy stuff. Last year, I read about Ecce Panis on one of my favorite blogs and we have been enjoying their products throughout the year. Ecce Panis breads are different because they are "Bake At Home" breads, which make them taste better! We love to use the breads for sandwiches, dipped in olive oil, or for the perfect side item.
When shopping at our Walmart, I knew I wanted to get an Ecce Panis bread product, but I wondered which would be best for our Easter meal. There were many different kinds to choose from. There was the European baguette, Ciabatta, dinner rolls, and more.
After thinking about who would be eating the meal and what, exactly, I would be making, I decided to get the French dinner rolls. Yum! I appreciate that Ecce Panis breads are priced right so I don't feel like I'm spending a fortune on a high quality, delicious bread.
I also love that Ecce Panis breads don't contain high fructose corn syrup, like many of the competitors do! Their ingredients list is much cleaner than other bread companies.
About an hour and a half before time to eat, I prepared the small ham we purchased and stuck it in the oven first, since I knew that would take the longest. Then, I prepared the roasted potatoes by cutting four potatoes and tossing them with olive oil and seasonings. I softened them in the microwave for about six minutes before mixing in my chopped zucchini. When it was all mixed in well, I put the mixture on a cookie sheet and put it in the oven where my ham was cooking. Then, I sliced up some fresh carrots from our garden and roasted them in olive oil, as well:
After reading the directions for the bread, I waited until everything else was almost done cooking and then I put the Ecce Panis dinner rolls in the oven for about 5 minutes.
Our meal turned out PERFECT!!! The warm, fresh, crusty Ecce Panis dinner rolls were the perfect addition to our meal and the vegetables were just delicious, too! This meal definitely past the test for the perfect Easter meal.
