Thanksgiving, Christmas, and other end-of-year holiday celebrations are near. One of the best parts of the holidays is all of the delicious food, but sometimes it’s hard to come up with ideas of what to bring to parties. To help you prepare, see our ideas for 5 potluck dishes to bring to your next holiday party.
- Pull-apart garlic bread pizza dip. Pizza is an amazing, versatile dish that is a certified crowd pleaser. This dish takes a spin on the classic Italian food in an easy-to-share dip. First start with your cheeses such as mozzarella and ricotta and Italian seasoning. Mix them and place them at the bottom of a 9×13 casserole dish. Next, add the pizza sauce. Assemble some Hawaiian rolls, top them with butter and Italian seasoning, and put them on top of the sauce and cheese. Bake at 350 and voila, you have delicious cheesy goodness.
- Stuffed mushrooms. Savory mushrooms team up with garlicy breadcrumbs and cheese to deliver a mouthwatering experience. All you need is baby bella mushrooms, cream cheese, bread crumbs, fresh thyme, and Italian seasoning to whip up this fabulous appetizer.
- Charcuterie board. Well-beloved, charcuterie boards can be a unique and filling appetizer complete with your choice of fruits, cheeses, crackers, meats, and more. You can make it your own and add grapes, tomatoes, salami, bread, or any other snack foods. Arrange it in an aesthetically-pleasing fashion and your guests will be sure to enjoy getting to pick and choose.
- Red velvet cake bites. Mix red velvet cake crumbles with cream cheese frosting and roll them into balls. Next, put them in the fridge for at least an hour. Then melt white chocolate candy in the microwave and dip the cake bites in the coating, and return to the fridge until the coating is solid. You can even choose a different cake mix flavor and top with sprinkles if you like. Enjoy!
- Slow cooked ham. This is a set it and forget it recipe you can prepare and cook in your slow-cooker for 6-8 hours. The ingredients you’ll need are brown sugar, cola, ground mustard, horseradish, and 1 fully cooked boneless ham. Combine everything together and rub it on the ham, transfer it to the slow cooker and let it cook through the day.
We wish you a great Thanksgiving and a very Merry Christmas. We hope you enjoy these recipes!
