If you are going to a party, pick in, church potluck or any other type of event where you have to bring a covered dish then I have 3 super simple and crowd pleasing recipes that you will want to use. These are my all time favorite and easy potluck recipes!

There are 3 things that you want to accomplish any time that you are going to an event like these.

  • You want a dish that is easy to make.
  • You want a dish that is easy to carry.
  • You want a dish that taste so good that you don’t end up with an uneaten dish that you have to take back home or throw out.

Using a slow cooker will make your life so much easier whenever you are going to a party or pitch in. You can buy carrying cases the not only make it easy to carry your slow cooker, but will also insulate it.
People tend to gravitate to food that is in slow cookers because it is warm and just seems like a safer choice when choosing what to eat at a pot luck.

Try out one of these 3 recipes the next time that you have to bring a covered dish. They are all very easy to make and will not take you more than a few minutes to put together, so they work great if you are in a hurry.

All the recipes are also super cheap to make but you will never hear a complaint if you show up with on of these.
