This Easter, the Pork Checkoff is showing pork lovers how they can freshen up familiar favorites for a one-of-a-kind Easter menu.

“Easter is a holiday where ham reigns supreme,” said Randy Brown, chair of the Pork Checkoff Domestic Marketing Committee and a pork producer from Nevada, Ohio. “It is also a time when cooks can unlock and explore new flavors. Pork makes that easy to accomplish because it has unlimited possibilities.”

The Pork Checkoff is teaming up with Haylie Duff – actress, cookbook author and host of “The Real Girl’s Kitchen” on the Cooking Channel – to inspire consumers and help them re-envision their Easter celebrations. Each of Duff’s new recipes incorporate timeless Easter ingredients, such as ham, fresh herbs and potatoes, into creative, modern preparations.

The new recipes include Prosciutto-Wrapped Pork Roast with White Wine and Herbs, Ham and Smoked Gouda Biscuits with Maple Butter and Ham Stacks Au Gratin with Thyme. Duff also revealed how she plans to put together her Easter table. These images can be viewed on Pinterest, Facebook and Instagram.
