Casseroles have long been the go-to dish when you need something quick and easy to feed a lot of people or when making a dish to give a friend. While we think casseroles are great, they’re certainly not the only option.Feed a crowd without a #casserole. #recipes and #entertaining #tips from @cabotcheese Click To Tweet
Here are a few tips for going beyond casseroles:
Give it a twist! Instead of making traditional lasagna in a 9×13 pan, try these Mushroom and Beef Lasagna Rollups! They’re perfectly portioned and you don’t have to cut before serving!
Lasagna Roll Ups: Take along a simple salad and the entire meal is set!
Fire up the grill! Burgers are so simple and you can easily make 2-3 different varieties to please everyone’s tastebuds. Grill burgers ahead of time, but deliver them to a friend stacked in a slow cooker to keep the patties warm.
Take ’em a taco bar! We all know people have different taste preferences. One of the easiest ways to please a large crowd is to provide a variety of options and let them choose for themselves. A taco bar is a great way to do this. Make a big batch of meat in the slow cooker or oven and then provide a variety of toppings (like shredded Pepper Jack, guacamole and fresh tomato salsa) and let people create their own tacos!
This Yogurt Marinated Slow Roasted Pork would be a great place to start!
Gluten-free? This Cauliflower and Hamburger casserole is perfect for a crowd.
We’ve also rounded up a few of our fave crowd-pleasers that are just as easy as casseroles, and we’re certain your friends will love them!
