How to Transport Your Potluck Dish from Point A to Point B

BBQ season is upon us and with that comes backyard parties, summer soirees and al fresco dining! You’ve probably been invited to a BBQ before with an invitation with something like “Bring a dish to share!” I know each year for our Memorial Day party, Reggie and I take care of the meat while we ask our guests to bring a side!

But if you’re like me, sometimes I have a hard time actually transporting the meals to the get togethers! Here are some of my favorite ways to get your creation from point A to point B, in style!

How to Dress Up a Foil Pan

Most of the time I make my potluck dishes in a foil pan, but when I discovered there was away to dress the pans up, I was so excited! Fancy Panz has 2 options in the 11x9 inch foil pans. If you have a shallow pan of 1.5 inches you can use a riser, and if your pan is 2.5 inches deep then you can just directly insert them into the fancy pan and close! Fancy Panz gives the look of a gorgeous casserole dish without any of the clean up!

To keep your food hot or cold for longer, Arctic Zone suggests that you take your dish out of the oven and put it directly into the bag. Not only that, but the more food you have in the bag the longer it stays hot or cold!
