Choose An Ingredient Potluck Party: Corn!

Choose An Ingredient Potluck Party: Corn!

When you have to include such a delicious ingredient in a dish, it becomes a lot easier to decide what to cook. We’re hoping to make things that simple for you! For this Choose An Ingredient Potluck Party, corn will be the star of the show!

Give each of your friends or family members a category to make a dish that uses corn! They can choose from appetizer, main courses, sides or desserts. You can also send them this list of yummy corn dishes if they can’t come up with any themselves. If corn isn't your favorite ingredient to cook with, make sure to choose your own ingredient and search through a ton of delicious recipes that incorporate it on Recipe4Living. Enjoy!

Presentation Pointers:

  1. Since the potluck ingredient is corn, ask all of the guests to wear one item of clothing or an accessory that is yellow. The person with the most inventive clothing decisions can win a small prize, like a $5 gift certificate to a coffee house.
  2. As the potluck progresses, make sure to keep an eye on what needs to be cleaned or refilled. Once a serving dish has emptied, remove it from the table.  
  3. Ask guests to bring their dish in a disposable container so when the time comes for cleanup, it will be quick and painless.
