We’re going to a pot luck and I’m looking for some ideas. I usually bring cakes to these types of things, but everyone was asked to bring a side dish. (meat and desert are provided) What are some of your favorite dishes to bring to pot lucks? Do you have a dish that is a crowd favorite?

I always like to bring an enchilada casserole since it is easy and usually Mexican food makes people happy.

Hmmm, that depends on the season. During the summer, my mom’s tomato salad (balsamic, garlic, onions, etc.) is always REALLY popular!

Cheesey Potato’s is always a crowd pleaser. So is my Kick A$$ Taco Dip.

Ok so guess what? My answer is the same as Tessabella! I looooove my Au Gratin potatoes … they’re lethal. Everyone dies for them. My mil mexican dip … which I wish I could master is a huge crowd pleaser.
Tess…. care to share the recipe?

As a side, I like a napa salad. Napa cabbage, green onions, topped with ramen/almonds or peanuts/sesame seeds (all toasted with a little butter) and a dressing made of oil, vinegar, sugar, and a little soy sauce. Yum!!

@MHR-it’s very simple. An 8 oz package of softened cream cheese, an 8 oz container of sour cream, and a package of taco seasoning. Mix it all together with a mixer and then spread it in your dish and layer green onions, tomato’s, black olives, and whatever shredded cheese you like on top.

I really wish it wasn’t so simple … now I can make it all the time. Eeek bridal diet. Seriously. Thank you! It’s myfavorite thing ever.

Another fan of Au Gratin potatoes, or some nice, rich-as-hell mac and cheese!

LOL, Tessabella, that is the same taco dip recipe I was going to add- love it! I always hope for leftovers and rarely have them.

Black Bean and Goat Cheese Dip, Mexican Layer Dip or a Veggie Tray with Buttermik Peppercorn dip. I’m making the later on Thursday for Parent’s Night at the little one’s school.

Mmmmmmmmm mac-n-cheese…..with the crunchy good crust….
Good thing I’m off the the gym soon or I’d gain weight just reading this thread…
As for me I usually make a green salad with bleu cheese, candied walnuts and dried cranberries…you know, those salads that are more fattening than, say, a cheeseburger?

I usually bring dessert: red velvet whoopie pies. If it’s a side: mac and cheese. Mmm…
