For many, an Easter feast isn't a feast without a glazed ham at the center of the table. And while the roast can surely hold its own, it definitely needs a few great supporting side dishes to make the meal a success. We rounded up our favorites, from roasted asparagus and creamy baked spinach to rosemary potatoes and buttery rolls, so you can set a table that brings a smile to everyone's face.
