This is an M&S Easter roast, with tender slow-cooked lamb shoulder, vibrant veggies and a showstopping family pudding. Discover all you need in store to make the long weekend taste amazing
Our succulent slow-cooked lamb shoulder has a meltingly tender texture as if it’s been cooking away for hours and because we've done the hard work for you, it's ready in just 70 minutes, making it the ideal family roast.
Sourced from our Select Farms, which meet our high-quality animal welfare standards, the lamb is seasoned with an aromatic rosemary and garlic rub, and comes with a tangy mint sauce. And for an Instagram-worthy lunch decorate the table with spring flowers and handwritten name tags tied with sprigs of herbs.
For the ultimate fuss-free accompaniment to your Easter feast, choose our extra-special cauliflower cheese. With its intensely cheesy sauce and tender cauliflower florets, it's about as irresistible as a side dish gets. All you need to do is pop it in the oven and wait for the top to go golden and bubbling: heaven.
Make your roast lamb sing with a selection of flavour-packed spring sides. Think family-sized packs of Boston green beans, crisp, golden cook-from-frozen Jersey Royal roasties and, of course, British asparagus.
For extra flavour, cook the asparagus in a griddle pan and serve with charred lemon and a drizzle of olive oil. Steam the Boston beans then sprinkle with toasted almonds and lemon zest, and toss Jersey Royal roasties with fresh rosemary and sea salt flakes.
There’s always room for pudding, so here’s how to end Easter lunch on a high note – choose Our Best Ever Trifle. It’s generously layered with juicy strawberry and raspberry compote with fruit sourced from farms we know and trust, luxurious homemade-style vanilla custard made from Channel Island milk and a topping of freshly whipped British cream. The recipe took us a year to perfect, so it's sure to help finish your Easter celebrations in sweet style. With six servings for £5, it's amazing value, too.
