Summertime in the South means fresh produce, good food, and potlucks — especially potlucks. I’ve always loved going to summer potlucks for two reasons — quality time with friends and family and quality time with good food. My grandma saw potlucks as a place to showcase any crazy, newfangled casserole recipe she’d found. She could gauge their interest and determine if the recipe was truly a good one. Folks, these 20 recipes are the good ones.
If you’ve ever been to a potluck, you’re probably familiar with the staple recipes for a potluck. Deviled eggs, pulled pork sandwiches, pie, and every type of casserole you could possibly dream up. My grandma makes the best deviled eggs ever! I would eat a whole plate if I could.
No matter which portable potluck foods you like, there is something for everyone in these great potluck recipes. Some call it church supper food. Some call it funeral food. Whatever you call it and no matter the occasion, these recipes are here to provide some inspiration for your next summer potluck!
