There’s nothing better than having the friends come together, whether it’s for the holidays, a reunion or just because. And when it comes time to feed everyone who’s in town — well, that’s when things can get a little stressful. But they don’t have to be! Instead of worrying about making some sort of gourmet meal, focus on what’s always a hit: cozy, simple comfort food.
Casseroles always fit the bill, whether you opt for something meaty or cheesy. And the slow cooker and Instant Pot are definitely your friends when it comes to preparing big batch meals; the slow cooker makes it easy to plan ahead, while the Instant Pot is there when you need to cook up a whole lot of food in a hurry.
Whatever the occasion, there’s nothing more special than sharing a meal surrounded by friend and family. These tasty recipes help ensure that you’ll spend more time talking and laughing with your loved ones and less time stressed out by the stove.
