It’s that time of year again, the time for tinsel, trees, holiday parties and...potlucks. Every December we are invited to at least one potluck and I am always short on time to figure out what to bring. This year is no different. But I’m hoping to be more prepared by having some tasty recipes ready to make! Here are a few recipes that look delicious, super easy and quick.
Appetizer: Tortilla Pinwheels from Taste of Home
I love the look of these Tortilla Pinwheels! The combination of olives, green chilies, cream cheese, and tortillas sounds delicious! Prep time for these is 20 minutes and then they chill for several hours leaving you with time to get everyone ready or prep another dish. If you have kids at your potluck, you could make some Peanut Butter and Jelly Pinwheels for a kid-friendly appetizer option to go along with these!
Side Dish: Easy Cheesy Tortellini Bake
This Easy Cheesy Tortellini Bake is so easy to throw together! 15 minutes of prep time and 15 minutes in the oven and it’s done. You could even add some cooked Italian sausage to make it a main dish.
Main Dish: Make Ahead Fajitas from Mr. Food
How about these Make Ahead Fajitas if you are in charge of a main potluck dish? They are easy to whip up and have a cook time of 35 minutes. They look delicious and are a nice change from a typical casserole.
Dessert: Hello Dollies from allrecipes.com
This rich dessert is delicious and a family favorite of mine! Hello Dollies combine coconut flakes, graham cracker crumbs and chocolate chips in a gooey bar. It takes less than 15 minutes to throw together, 25-30 minutes to bake and they are fool proof!
I’d love to hear about your favorite quick and easy potluck dishes too!
