I love Spring with its lovely fresh colours, the buzzing and the gorgeous weather, no more grey everywhere. Such an exciting time! And with Easter fast approaching, we have never been busier in the kitchen getting all that yummy food ready.

So much to choose from. Since starters go first, the pressure is even higher as you want to impress right from the begging. And what a better choice than a lovely meatloaf.

Once on the table, it will be gone in seconds, there won’t even be crumbs left. Just pop it in the fridge beforehand, as it tastes a lot better cold and it feels even lighter.

Turkey is a lean and healthy meat anyway, so this my version of meatloaf is nowwhere near as dense and heavy as a combination of different cuts of other meat.

I know most people prefer lamb for Easter, but as you know, I have never ever even tried lamb, so turkey it is for me. Or, for a vegetarian version, you can use dried soy granules or quorn pieces which can be soaked in hot water, the result will be as delicious.

Another great vegetarian alternative can be mushrooms, they are the perfect substitute for meat, and they are highly nutritious too. When one needs a great appetizer, there is so much choice out there.

The hard-boiled eggs are not only a yummy addition to my moist turkey meatloaf, but they also help with a nicer presentation. Surely, a simple meatloaf is enough to impress, given the fabulous taste, but, if you want to go that extra mile to impress, be sure to use the eggs.

The final touch is the fantastic mixture of ketchup, yellow mustard and soy sauce, which then tops the meatloaf. A nice and bright colour to contrast with the pale brownish meatloaf.

You can also have some extra ketchup on the side if you like, I quite like to dip the meatloaf in extra ketchup. Another option would be a good old gravy to pour over the meatloaf, but that’s entirely up to one’s taste.

And, believe me, this really is a great appetizer for that special Easter Day. If you need more Easter recipes, my 15 Must-Try Easter Foods: Appetizers, Main Courses and Desserts is the right place to search for some more inspiration.

And I guarantee you that your meal will be a special one, just like this holiday. I could never decide which one I like best, Christmas and Easter, they are both special, different, but what’s the most important thing is that they bring the families together around the table.

And this is indeed priceless!
