If you plan to host or attend a Passover Seder, we have some delicious suggestions for what to bring to the table.

(Please confirm that all the ingredients you are using are Kosher for Passover, and choose the Kosher ingredient option when there is a choice of two.)

1. Chef Ludo's Potato Cake with Onions

This beautiful, layered potato side dish will impress your guests with its elegant presentation, but it has only a few ingredients and is quite simple to make.

2. Art Smith's Sweet Potato Salad with Cumin and Cilantro

This sweet potato salad is a slightly unconventional addition to a Passover table, but would pair well with any roasted meat.

3. Spezzatino Sicilian-Braised Lamb Chops

For your Seder lamb, may we suggest this rich, hearty lamb chop recipe? It cooks slowly, so the meat becomes extremely tender, and the flavor-bomb sauce features notes of citrus, herbs, and even chili.

4. Roast Half Spring Chickens with Potatoes, Olives and Lemon

This elegant roasted spring chicken is brined for 24 hours ahead of cooking to develop the flavor.

Tip: To easily peel pearl onions, simply boil them in their skins for three minutes, then put in an ice bath. When they're cool, you can simple squeeze them out of their skins. Couldn't be easier!

5. Scott Conant's Pan Roasted Chicken with Potatoes & Green Olives

This recipe may seem humble, but the hearty flavor of the browned chicken, roasted potatoes and savory olives will make your Seder guests feel right at home. Bonus – it easily feeds a crowd.

6. Brined Brisket

Brisket is another delicious way to feed a crowd. This brined recipe slow cooks for maximum tenderness.

Tip: Make sure your brisket is at room temperature before you brown it.

7. Michael Symon's Avocado Chocolate Mousse

For a nutritious AND delicious finale to your seder, try Michael Symon's avocado chocolate mousse, which can be made in advance so you only need to serve when the time comes.

"I know it's probably strange to see avocado in a dessert recipe, but it's the secret ingredient to a delectable dairy-free mousse with silky texture," Michael says.
