Perfect Potluck Casserole Recipes

The next best option when you're headed to a potluck? Casseroles! They're easy to make when you're in a hurry, totally simple to transport, and there are so many options out there to choose from, so you know your crowd will never get bored -- at least not when you're in charge!

Easy Dessert Recipes for Potlucks

Sweet and Salty Popcorn Bars

Don't forget about dessert, it's the best part! We've added an especially tasty group of potluck desserts to this list just for you. Desserts are fun because there are so many options! If you feel like bringing individual servings for people, try something bite-sized or handheld. We'd recommend brownies, cookies, cupcakes, or other dessert bars. Just make sure there's a refrigerator on site if you have something with frosting that could potentially melt. Another great option is cake because everyone loves cake and it's easy to slice up and share. The ultimate party food.
