How To Choose The Best One-Pot Meal For Your Dinner Party
There’s a wide variety of one-pot meal choices for dinner parties, but you can narrow down your options by considering how many guests you’ll be hosting.
You should choose a dish that will provide just enough food for everyone, so you don’t run the risk of running out of servings or having excessive leftovers.
Melissa Clark, author of “Dinner in One: Exceptional & Easy One-Pan Meals,” says that sheet pan and smaller skillet meals will provide enough food for groups of two to four.
Recipes that use a Dutch oven, 12-inch skillet, or casserole dish are great for parties of six, while soup pots and Instant Pots are designed to accommodate six to eight people.
Using two pieces of cookware instead of one will feed parties of 10 or more. When deciding on a recipe, you should also consider the complexity and preparation time.
Choose a dish that aligns with your cooking skills and your available time. Selecting a recipe with few ingredients and simple steps will save you trouble in the kitchen.
