Our 12 Best Funeral Foods for Those in Need

Funeral foods are best described as easy, comfort food recipes you can make and take with you to a funeral, wake, or other gathering after someone has passed as a gesture of compassion and support. Casseroles are one of the best options out there, so we've included a wide variety. Additionally, we've included some easy-to-make sheet cakes and some other shareable dishes that are sure to help comfort those in mourning.

When someone has just lost a loved one, the last thing on their mind is food or cooking. The reality of the situation, however, is that meals are still going to come around and it's the least the rest of us can do to help take care of and support our friends and family during the first few days of any passing. Be prepared with a quick and handy list of comforting recipes that you can prepare ahead of time and take with you to share. 

Please also be sure to check out these great resources below for tips on freezing food. This information will come in handy for those who want to make multiple meals at once and save and defrost them later.

COMMENT CONTEST: Tell us about your favorite comforting dish -- either one that you make or one that you love that someone else makes!

Simple Shareables

Ultimate Creamy Egg Salad

These shareable dishes are classic recipes you'll recognize because they make an appearance at almost every potluck. You've probably even made them before. Deli salads are popular for a reason. They're easy to make, easy to share, and comforting to eat. Choose from one of the 4 below, and just keep it in the fridge till you're ready to go.

Comforting Casseroles

Perogy-Stuffed Shells

We can't say enough good things about casseroles! They're just so easy to make and the possibilities are endless. The casseroles below are handpicked favorites of ours, because of their ability to put a smile on our faces and our... is it possible for a stomach to smile? If so, we're pretty sure these comforting casseroles could do the job. Make a tough time easier to get through with family, friends, and funeral foods like these.

Make and Take Desserts

Frosted Texas Brownies

Desserts may not be the first thing people think to make for their grieving loved ones, but they shouldn't be overlooked. While the casseroles and deli salads above are more substantial, desserts are very comforting too! Some people crave savory dishes, some crave sweets. For the latter, we've collected a few of our favorite, easy dessert recipes that we hope will bring comfort in trying times.
