Potlucks are a great way to have a party and keep work to a minimum, because instead of the host preparing the entire meal, each guest brings a favorite dish.

Here are a few quick tips for hosting a successful potluck party:

  • Provide the main dish and beverages, and let guests contribute all the extras.
  • For a menu with variety, assign each guest a type of dish to bring.
  • Keep things simple by choosing a recipe that can be made with ingredients you can readily find in your pantry and refrigerator.
  • Quick heat-and-serve dishes are best because they require little last-minute fussing.
  • Make sure there are plenty of plates, cups and utensils – the noncooks in your crowd will be happy to bring some.
  • Ask each guest to bring 10 copies of his or her recipe to share with others at the party.

Impress your guests with these surprisingly easy, crowd-pleasing casserole recipes that require minimal preparation and clean up, yet taste like you spent hours in the kitchen.
