I make this hash brown potato casserole with cornflakes etc.... It's incredibly cheesy and delicious, "Cheesy Hash brown Casserole" is the name maybe. I can't remember the exact name of it, but whatever it is, that thing gets eaten at any gathering and very quickly. I've seen it at at many functions too. In fact I was at a funeral luncheon yesterday and it was being served.
I'm often faced with the need to take a potluck dish to church, but we live 30 minutes away so a hot dish is no longer hot. My solution is a cold pasta salad. One that is easy to put together is cook a pound (box) of pasta (we like the bow-tie shaped) and add a container of krab salad (the kind you get in the deli with artificial crab meat, onions, peppers, and a mayo-based dressing). I usually add some black olives, green onions, and a bit of fresh or dill or dried dill weed. If dry stir in some sour cream or Greek yogurt.
I have a carrot salad that is super healthy and super good that always goes over well: shredded carrots, few cloves of garlic, raisins, parsley, olive oil, honey, salt. My sister says she can successfully sneak this into gatherings where the offerings may not be so healthy and it gives people something positive to "think" about, like, "Maybe good food isn't all that bad after all."
What is a favorite, easy dish for you to take to potlucks?Every time I go to a potluck, I have to think about what I'm going to make to take. Do you have a favorite or signature dish that you usually take every time,...
