When done right, they create amazing opportunities to share delicious foods, enjoy meals with family and friends, and to share the cooking. Great potlucks require great dishes, from all-in-one creations that can be prepared in advance and travel well to desserts that don't take too much time or too many ingredients to make. With a few simple pointers, potlucks can be perfect for any occasion. Tips like bringing dishes in reusable containers that can be left make the process easy.
If you don't have a casserole carrier, something as quick as covering it in foil and wrapping it in towels will keep it warmer longer. And having a few fun dishes on hand to take with you can make the whole process more fun. An Easter Potluck might be the perfect place for a Chocolate Truffle Pie with Amaretto Cream, and a glass of Champagne Punch. At Thanksgiving, taking along a Classic Sweet Potato Casserole will probably stand you in good stead. Think of dishes that travel well, and you'll be well ahead. You'll love sharing these recipes, and you'll love your potlucks.
