Easter is right around the corner! It’s late this year which means we’ve had extra time to plan for Easter. Did you use the extra time? I did not. I totally forgot until just recently. In case you forgot too, I came up with the simplest Easter dinner that has ever been an Easter dinner. Why? You ask? Why is this the easiest Easter dinner in the history of Easter dinners? It cooks on one sheet pan in the oven for about 20 minutes. DONE.
It leaves you plenty of time to egg hunt or go to church or do what ever else you like to do at Easter. Sleep in if you want. You’ll still get an epic Easter dinner on the table - or make it brunch. You do you.
Just don’t forget the cocktail. Scroll to the bottom for this epic cucumber drink you won’t want to miss out on.

GREENS, EGGS, & HAM
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Chop vegetables and toss with 2 tbs olive oil. Spread out vegetables on a cookie sheet. Slice the ham into one-inch slices and brush one side with 1 tbs peach jam. Snuggle the ham into the veggies and pop into the oven. Let roast for 15 minutes.
Mix vegetable dressing by combining balsamic, remaining olive oil, mustard and remaining peach jam in a jar. Shake well and set aside.
Remove sheet pan from the oven and make 4 small wells. Crack and egg into each well and sprinkle tomatoes on top of everything. Return the pan to the oven and cook about 5 minutes until the eggs are set.
When everything is cooked, dress the vegetables and serve everything together.
