We celebrate Easter every year and it is a beautiful spring holiday that brings the end of winter, the beginning of spring and is also a time for feasting and preparing Easter delicacies. The date of Easter is set each year for the Sunday after the first full moon of spring. But its Christian preparation begins on Ash Wednesday and lasts for forty days until Easter Sunday, preceded by Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and White Saturday.
In our country, the best known Easter traditions are the grease, the bunny, dyed and decorated eggs - a symbol of life force, birth and life, Easter Judas, meeting families and neighbours in caroling. Everywhere is full of laughter and good mood.
We are going to knit pomlades, dye eggs, decorate indoor and outdoor spaces with decorations with spring motifs, chicks, different kinds of bunnies, coloured ribbons and Easter eggs.
Let's keep the strongest message of Easter for each of us.
Let's get rid of everything old inside and out, cleanse the home and body of impurities and prepare for the rebirth of nature.
Easter delicacies are traditional in every family and today we will try to make traditional recipes a little differently together.
Recipe for juicy Easter stuffing
Although this recipe is not exactly traditional, it is slightly Italian-style and acts as a savoury pie. Don't be afraid to experiment. You can add fresh cheese, spring onions and bear garlic is great too.
1 onion, 250 g English bacon (or smoked meat), olive oil,
1 teaspoon dried garlic, 1 teaspoon dried thyme
4 large pickled sun-dried tomatoes, 125 g baby spinach, 4 bunches of nettles
250 ml cooking cream, 3 eggs, salt and pepper, 4 old rolls
butter to grease the baking dish, breadcrumbs to line the baking dish
Peel the onion and cut it into smaller cubes. Cut the bacon into cubes. Heat the oil in a frying pan, add the onion and bacon. Fry. Then add the dried garlic and thyme and sauté. Add the sliced sun-dried tomatoes and sauté.
Coarsely chop the baby spinach with nettles. And add to the mixture in the pan. Let simmer for a while, set aside. Preheat the oven to 180 °C. Grease a baking dish with butter and sprinkle with breadcrumbs.
In a bowl, whisk the cream together with the eggs, salt and pepper. Be careful not to make it too salty! Cut the rolls into cubes, dip into the cream and eggs and then mix with the mixture in the pan. Transfer everything to a baking dish and bake until golden brown, about 35 minutes. Serve while still warm. The stuffing is moist and juicy.
