When you're looking for the best potluck recipes to bring along, it can be difficult to know exactly where to start. Do you bring a plate of cookies or a savory appetizer? Can you make it the night before, or do you have to prepare it on the day? And you don't always want to recycle through the same recipes for parties every single time. You want to mix things up, add a little pizzazz, if you will. No matter what the occasion, the latest edition of the Mr. Food Test Kitchen's eCookbook collection, Must-Have Potluck Recipes: 37 Recipes for Parties, Potlucks, Dinners, and More, will solve all of your party planning dilemmas. With such a wide assortment of easy potluck recipes at your disposal, we know you'll be able to find just the right recipe to fit your needs — and you can choose a different recipe every time, so you're always keeping your friends and family on their toes!
What in the world is someone supposed to bring to a breakfast potluck? When you and a group of friends all get together for your weekly brunch, you've got to have just the right dish to "wow" the crowd. If unique is your thing, then you're going to love one of our best potluck recipes: Breakfast Lasagna (page 2). We know; it sounds a little wacky, right? If you're looking to make a splash at your next event, then this is the potluck recipe for you. To appease the sweet tooths in the gang, take a peek at our recipe for Chocolate Banana Baked French Toast (page 4). Fruity and chocolate-y come together to make one tasty combination. If you're into something a little heartier for breakfast, feast your eyes on our bring-along recipe for Bacon 'n' Egg Cups (page 6). We love this breakfast potluck recipe because it puts our favorite traditional brunch foods into an easy-to-transport form.
When you need that perfect recipe for mixing and mingling among the crowd, these potluck appetizer recipes will really fit the bill. Some of our favorite recipes for parties have a savory twist, and recipes like our Bacon Pierogi Bites (page 7) are no exception. Come on — who doesn't love bacon?! If you're looking to push the envelope, we dare you to try our hot 'n' spicy recipe for Jalapeno Cheese Bites (page 8). Keep some dip nearby in case things get a little too intense! We all know that kids can be pretty picky eaters. If it's not pizza or mac 'n' cheese, it doesn't get eaten, right? Well, one of our best potluck recipes will provide you with a tasty dish that guests of all ages will enjoy: Pepperoni Pie Squares (page 12). In fact, you can even top 'em off with your favorite pizza toppings for a customized potluck appetizer recipe you'll love.
It's the age-old battle of deli versus green, and it's bound to be a real fight to the finish! Salads are a must-have at any party, making the perfect complement to a filling dinner entree. For green salad fans, we recommend checking out our potluck salad recipe for Chilled Stacked Salad (page 13). Keep this one in your fridge, and it'll make a cool and refreshing addition to any spread. Plus, we know you're going to want to check out one of our all-time most popular recipes for parties: Best Broccoli Salad (page 14). A beloved favorite every summer, this is going to be one of those potluck salad recipes you'll make for decades to come. Plus, did you see the Seven Layer Potato Salad (page 17) photo on our cover? This impressive potluck salad recipe will make you the star of the party, especially if you put it in a clear container, so everyone can admire the different layers.
Whether it's time for a Cinco de Mayo party or you just need a batch of festive recipes for parties, then our spread of recipes for a Mexican potluck menu has you covered. Make your homemade dip recipe the star of the show with our colorful potluck recipe for Fiesta of a Spread (page 19). It may look fancy and difficult to make, but trust us — it's a quickie to prepare! If you need a shortcut recipe that'll appeal to everyone at the party, then our Border Biscuit Bake (page 22) is one of our best potluck recipes. Using one of our favorite secret ingredients, refrigerated biscuits, you can get a fluffy potluck casserole recipe without putting in a ton of effort. If you thing that Mexican food is all about the beef, never fear 'cause we've got a Mexican chicken recipe you're going to love with our Chicken Tortilla Cake (page 24). This savory cake recipe makes your Mexican potluck menu truly complete.
You've got dessert cooking in the oven and dinner on the stovetop. Where are you supposed to have room to cook anything else? Why, that's why we've got our slow cooker, of course! If your kitchen tends to get haphazard during big events, we recommend getting out your slow cooker for a hassle-free dinner recipe... like with our Saucy Italian Pot Roast (page 25). Italian potluck recipes are guaranteed crowd-pleasers, and when you combine that with your slow cooker... well... it just doesn't get much easier than that! Some of the best potluck recipes are slow cooker-friendly, like our summer-favorite recipe for Creamy Corn for a Crowd (page 27). No need to deal with messy corn on the cobs — just put it on your plate and take it to go. And if you're looking for a slow cooker potluck recipe that looks extra impressive, our Meaty Vegetable and Rice Stuffed Peppers (page 29) really take the prize.
And now, ladies and gentlemen, the part you've all been waiting for... potluck dessert recipes! For the most reliable recipes for parties, potluck desserts are the way to go. From unbelievable bite-sized favorites like our Mini Chocolate Chip Cheesecakes (page 31) to fun and decorative desserts like our Corn on the Cob Cupcakes (page 33), there's no limit to the decadent desserts we've got in store. These kinds of potluck dessert recipes are fitting for a variety of occasions, from club meetings to holiday parties to backyard barbecues and more. You can go traditional or add a bit of pizzazz like with our tropical dessert recipe for Zesty Lime Poke Cake (page 35). It's not your ordinary potluck dessert recipe; it's something special!
