Call me crazy, but I love a good holiday potluck. Filling my plate with a taste of this, a scoop of that, one or two of those — hand me a fork and I'm in foodie heaven. But before that can happen comes the agony of deciding what to bring myself. Finding that perfect dish that will simultaneously please and impress, plus be easy to shuttle along in a car or on a bus, is no small feat. Perhaps one of these this year?
All of these can be prepared ahead of time, packed up, and carried to your party destination. A few, like the chicken flautas and the bacon-wrapped potato bites, will need to be warmed before serving. If bringing a warm appetizer, I recommend checking with the host ahead of time to make sure you can snag some oven space (I learned this lesson the hard way!).
What's your favorite potluck dish?
