Cooking For A Crowd: 8 Easy Family-Style Dinners For A Full House (RECIPES)

The idea of hosting a full house for the holidays always seems like a lot of fun. Until, that is, you start planning the menu. Doubling, tripling and even quadrupling recipes gets tricky when it comes to pan sizes and cooking or baking times, never mind finding dishes that will please everyone.

It’s hard to go wrong with these comforting, family-style casseroles and bakes that serve anywhere from 10 to 16. Who doesn’t love lasagna? We’ve thrown in a chili recipe for good measure. The recipes are all on the healthful side, too, so you need only count heads, chairs, plates and silverware, not calories.
