Easter is a time for bunny rabbits and family, chocolate eggs and togetherness, candy and… candy. But also special dinners for friends and loved ones.

Tip: Want to make quick work of mincing the chives? Hold them in one direction in one hand and use clean scissors to snip.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Mince dill, leaves and stems.

    Mince chives.

    Coarsely chop pecans.

    Peel, trim, and cut carrot into 1/4" slices on an angle.

    Cut potatoes into 1" pieces.

    Halve and juice lemon.

  2. 2

    Start Potatoes and Make Sauce

    Place potatoes on prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 Tbsp. olive oil, seasoning blend, and 1/4 tsp. salt. Massage oil and seasoning into potatoes.

    Spread into a single layer. Roast in hot oven until tender, 14-16 minutes.

    While potatoes roast, combine 1 Tbsp. lemon juice, mayonnaise, chives, and a pinch of salt in a mixing bowl. Set aside.

  3. 3

    Cook the Carrots

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium heat. Add butter and stir constantly until butter smells "nutty," turns golden, and brown flecks appear, 2-3 minutes.

    Stir in carrot, pecans, honey, 2 Tbsp. water, and 1/4 tsp. salt until combined. Increase heat to medium-high and cover. Stir occasionally until carrots are tender, 6-8 minutes.

    Uncover and stir occasionally until liquid is evaporated and carrots are glazed, 2-3 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

  4. 4

    Finish the Potatoes

    Stir cheese into roasted potatoes until combined.

    Roast again until cheese is golden brown, 4-6 minutes.

  5. 5

    Finish the Dish

    Transfer potatoes and carrots to serving dishes. Garnish carrots with dill and potatoes with lemon-mayonnaise-chive sauce. Serve family-style with the main dish of your choice. Bon appétit!
