How to Feed a Large Group Without Stressing Yourself Out

Imagine you’re going to be hosting a huge party soon. This party is going to have at least 30 people in attendance, but coming up with a menu is seemingly next to impossible.

Don’t fret, though. There are a ton of big meal options out there that you can choose to whip up. Plus, the food choices below won't stress you out, which means you can enjoy the party like everyone else.

Any Slow Cooker Meal
Anything you make in your slow cooker is typically super simple and won’t force you to slave away in the kitchen all day. You can even make your meal the night before your party and heat it up throughout the day. You can literally make anything in your slow cooker. From mac and cheese to pulled pork and chili -- it’s an easy way to make a lot of food without having to waste a lot of time.

A Taco Bar
Taco bars are great because they require very little preparation and you won’t have to worry about people bothering you for extra toppings. Everything will be laid out right in front of your guests so they can make the taco creation of their dreams. You can cook the meat right in your slow cooker and put sour cream, shredded lettuce, tomatoes, and cheese in disposable bowls. The cleanup will be easy and people will leave your party happy and full. Just don't forget to add a bowl of veggies for vegetarian guests.

Ice Cream Bar
You can’t forget about dessert. And there’s nothing easier for a dessert option than an ice cream buffet. Just pick up a few tubs of ice cream in different flavors. A recent survey of International Ice Cream Association member companies shows vanilla remains the most popular flavor among their consumers at 28%. Also, don't forget to grab some frozen treats that your dairy-free friends can enjoy. Lay the ice cream, the toppings, spoons, and ice cream cups out on a table in a cool location. You can also throw some ice cream cups with lids out on the table so people can bring their treat home with them. It’s a great idea for a summer party sweet tooth, especially if there are kids around.

Making food for a big crowd may seem intimidating, but it doesn't have to be. Consider making food in your slow cooker, creating a taco bar, or making an ice cream buffet for party-planning filled with ease.
