Easy recipes for office potlucks include appetizers, salads and casseroles. To prepare an easy shrimp and wasabi mayonnaise appetizer, mix mayonnaise and prepared wasabi to taste. Top rice crackers with the mayonnaise mixture, pre-cooked shrimp and chopped scallions.
A salad is a classic potluck dish. To prepare a cold broccoli salad, mix 1 cup of mayonnaise, 1/4 cup of chopped red onions, 1/2 cup of raisins, 3 to 5 tablespoons of sugar, 2 tablespoons of vinegar and 7 cups of freshly chopped broccoli florets in a large bowl. Refrigerate the salad for up to 24 hours. Add 1/2 cup of sunflower seeds and 8 slices of crumbled bacon just before serving.
To make a crisp version of the salad, mix the mayonnaise, chopped red onions, raisins, sugar and vinegar, and refrigerate the mixture separately from the broccoli florets. Stir the dressing into the broccoli just before serving, and then add sunflower seeds and bacon.
A pizza casserole made in a slow cooker is another easy recipe. To prepare the casserole, cook a 16-ounce package of rigatoni or large tube pasta according to the package directions. While the pasta cooks, brown 1 1/2 pounds of ground beef and 1 small chopped onion over medium heat.
Drain the pasta, and transfer it to a 5-quart slow cooker. Add the cooked beef, 4 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese, 2 15-ounce cans of pizza sauce, 1 can of condensed cream of mushroom soup and 1 8-ounce package of pepperoni. Stir the ingredients, cover them, and cook them on low for two to three hours until heated through. This recipe makes 12 to 14 servings.
