Potluck Dishes

Taking food to a party? Before you hit the road, find out which dishes are best to bring along.

Perfect To-Go Potluck Dishes

Spare yourself unnecessary hassles. These types of side dishes make the best travelers:

  • Dishes that need no reheating
  • Pre-baked casseroles held together with cheese or eggs
  • Slow-cooked dishes
  • Salads with separate dressing to be mixed in just before serving 
  • Pasta salads 
  • Savory pies and tarts 
  • Dishes frozen ahead of time to be defrosted and/or baked at the destination

Tip: Before choosing a dish to bring, ask the host what she needs to fill out the spread. Also, find out whether or not there will be space in the oven,  stove, or refrigerator.

Some good tips. Another tip for securing your potluck offering in the car, put it on the floor, not on the seat! (BTW, I, too, was wondering what that dish is pictured at the top of the article.)
