    Pot luck
    I want to throw a party, but I am too lazy to make food.
    Does anyone here have a signature dish that they bring to such events?
    If so what is it and how do you make it?

    My granny used to take 2 big cans of pork n beans, mix in ketchup and brown sugar, add bacon strips to the top and bake. It was easy to make and people liked it. Some kind of scoffed at her always bringing the same thing for 50+ years. Maybe if they ever got ate up she's have made a fresh batch 🙂 lol jk

    That would be especially good with bacon from a a pot bellied pig that's been fed on bacon. I'm in, but I could also bring my special chili except that all the wimmenfolk would want to go home with me.

    Creamy Potato Salad (four portions)

    14-16 potatoes, ca 600 gram
    2 dl sour cream
    4 table spoons mayonnaise
    1/4 leek or onion
    Salt
    Black or white pepper

    You can add small pieces of apple, capers e.g.

    I usually use more of the ingredients that what the recipe says.

    Search Epicurious.com for "Israeli couscous Tabbouleh". Discovered it a year or so ago. Tip: add a much larger amount of parsley and mint at the final stage. No need to peel the cucumber (although if it's north American variety then yes, I guess you do). And get really good quality cherry tomatoes on the vine.

    Green bean casserole.

    Ok I'll spill my secrets that make party goers ask for my autograph.

    What You'll Need
    1 can (10 3/4 ounces) Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup Or can of just about any kind of a cream of ...soup. Cream of celery works good
    1/2 cup milk
    Dash ground black pepper
    1 Tbs soy sauce or salt to taste if you prefer.
    1tbl4 cups cooked cut green beans
    1 1/3 cups French Fried Onions
    1 to 2 cups Generous amount of shredded cheddar cheese

    Here is how to Make It;
    1 Stir the soup, milk, black pepper, soy sauce, beans and 2/3 cup onions in a 1 1/2-quart casserole.
    2 Bake at 350°F. for 25 minutes or until the bean mixture is hot and bubbling. Stir the bean mixture. Sprinkle the top with Shredded cheddar cheese and the remaining onions.
    3 Bake for 10 minutes or until the onions and cheese are golden brown.
    I have been known to add a handful of the cheddar cheese in with the original ingredients also for extra cheesiness.
