|"Cheeseburger Casserole" Uploaded to Flickr by lynn.gardner|
They are out in their yard quite often and the Husband and I always say hello and we typically spend about a half hour chatting about things. So we decided to actually invite them over, inside our house, this past weekend. I just made some BBQ chicken and a salad and the neighbors brought these extremely delicious potatoes. They said they were just steamed and topped with butter and fresh parsley, but I swear there was a secret ingredient because they were so good!
Anyway, the neighbors brought the potatoes over in a fancy casserole carrier. And even though we didn't eat as soon as they got over, the potatoes stayed so nice and hot until we did actually eat!
I don't have one of those fancy carriers, do you? If so what kind do you have? Because I might have to invest.
In case you don't have a fancy carrier, here is what I do (and what Better Homes) recommends: prepare your hot foods in the dish you are going to serve it from. Cover the dish with a double layer of foil. Then, wrap the dish in one or two (in my case I use three) clean kitchen towels. This should keep the dish and food warm until you get to your friend's house.
If you don't have a casserole carrier, how do you keep your dishes warm when traveling to a BBQ or pot luck?
