Potluck Dinner Tip

Hosting a Potluck? Make a Chart

If you're hosting a potluck dinner this holiday season, make a chart to keep the dishes organized. Here's how you do it:

  1. On a blank sheet of paper, write down the names of each of your guests.
  2. Across the top of the page, write the courses: appetizers, entree, sides, dessert, etc.
  3. As your friends and family members let you know what they are bringing, fill in the chart.

Keep in mind the total number of people in attendance, and make sure that there will be enough food for everyone. Do you host a potluck? Share your tips and experiences with us below!

We do this when we have potlucks at work. It's definitely easier and you don't end up with twenty desserts and no entree.

Those sound awesome, Katie! Looking forward to it.

I usually tell people to bring enough for 4-6 people because that helps them know how much to bring, and curbs the need to pack a table full of leftovers. I also try to get people to bring their own serving ware too!

They are a family thing, think bacon-wrapped pigs in a blanket, but I was planning on taking some photos and sharing the recipe here. Look for it next week!
