Sunday Supper Recipe Ideas

Sunday is for rest and gathering with family and friends. Whether you congregate to carry out traditions or to pass down family recipes, coming together over a hot sunday meal does the soul good.

Gathering over a family meal provides a calm before the storm—a busy week ahead. It’s a chance for storytelling, teaching opportunities and so much more. Many remember weekly Sunday dinner at Grandma’s house, where the family came together for a meal after church. Somewhere along the way, many of us stopped this tradition, with the excuse that life had simply gotten too busy. Yet cooking a meal for loved ones exemplifies an act of service and also conveys gratitude for those in your life. God says, “Let all that you do be done in love” (1 Corinthians 16:14 ESV). Let love trickle into every bite of your Sunday meal.

Herb-Roasted Prime Rib with Baby Hasselback Potatoes

Warmth and gratitude fill the room when the aroma of succulent prime rib emanates from the oven. Butter, garlic and herbs coat the roast, creating a richly-colored exterior crust. Delicate baby hasselback potatoes pair perfectly with every bite of the luscious meat. Reserve garlic-infused drippings at the bottom of the pan to drizzle over the tender potatoes.

Expand Recipe
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh rosemary, plus additional for garnish
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh thyme, plus additional for garnish
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp plus ½ teaspoon flaky sea salt, plus additional for garnish
  • 1 tbsp plus 1 teaspoon cracked black peppercorns, plus additional for garnish
  • 1 (5-pound) boneless beef ribeye roast
  • 1 lb baby Dutch yellow potatoes
  • 2 ½ tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 2 bulbs garlic, halved crosswise
  • Combine butter, ¼ cup rosemary, ¼ cup thyme, minced garlic, 1 tablespoon sea salt and 1 tablespoon black pepper. Rub mixture evenly over entire surface of ribeye roast. Place roast, fat side up, on rack in a shallow roasting pan. Let stand at room temperature 45 to 60 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 475°F. Cut a thin lengthwise slice off one side of each potato so it doesn’t roll. Place a potato on a cutting board between 2 chopsticks. Slice the potato vertically, making cuts about 1⁄8 inch apart and about three-fourths of the way through the potato, using the chopsticks as your guide on when to stop slicing. Repeat with remaining potatoes. Toss potatoes with 2 tablespoons olive oil, remaining 1 teaspoon black pepper and remaining ½ teaspoon sea salt.
  • Place potatoes around roast in pan. Roast beef and potatoes, uncovered, for 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350°F and roast for 40 minutes.
  • Toss halved garlic bulbs with remaining ½ tablespoon olive oil; place around roast. Continue roasting for 20 to 35 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the roast reaches 130°F for rare or 140°F for medium-rare.
  • Remove roast from oven. Loosely cover with foil; let stand for 15 to 20 minutes before slicing. (Temperature of meat will continue to rise 5°F to 10°F during standing to reach desired doneness.) Garnish with additional rosemary, thyme, sea salt and cracked pepper, if desired.
Scalloped Potatoes with Leeks and Prosciutto

Make-ahead individual servings of scalloped potatoes serve as a cozy suppertime side. Earthy leeks and briny prosciutto cut through the velvety cheese and potato layers. Place assembled ramekins in the oven before guests arrive and heat until edges are slightly bubbly.

Expand Recipe
  • 5 tbsp unsalted butter, divided
  • 3 cups sliced leeks (white and pale green parts), rinsed
  • Coarse kosher salt
  • Ground white pepper
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 ½ lb baby Yukon Gold potatoes, thinly sliced
  • 8 oz thinly sliced prosciutto, torn into 1- to 2-inch pieces
  • 8 oz smoked Gouda cheese, shredded
  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly grease 6 (8-ounce) cocottes or ramekins with 1 tablespoon butter; set aside. Line a large rimmed baking pan with foil; set aside.
  • In a large nonstick skillet, melt remaining 4 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Add leeks and cook 6 to 8 minutes or until softened, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle with ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon white pepper. Transfer leeks to a bowl; set aside.
  • In the same skillet, heat cream and garlic over low heat just until cream begins to simmer. Remove from heat.
  • In the bottom of each cocotte or ramekin, arrange potatoes in an overlapping fashion. Top each with 1 tablespoon leeks, a few pieces of prosciutto, 1 tablespoon Gouda cheese and 1 tablespoon cream mixture. Lightly sprinkle with salt and white pepper. Repeat the layers 3 more times. Sprinkle each with remaining cheese. Drizzle each with remaining cream mixture.
  • Cover each cocotte or ramekin with foil; place in prepared baking pan. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove foil; bake for 14 to 16 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
Spicy Chicken with Mustard and Lime

Spice up traditional Sunday chicken with a fiery crushed red pepper rub and a tangy mustard-lime marinade.
