Main Dish

If you're looking for good main dish ideas, you've come to the right place! Whether you're heading to a potluck or you need to mix up your weeknight menu, Yummly has hundreds of ideas to cook up for your next entree…

Potluck Dishes

If you're going to a potluck, selecting the right main dish can be tricky. Typically, comfort food like macaroni and cheese or a good chicken and broccoli casserole are winners, but there are healthy recipes that you can contribute to the party. Try slow cooker low mein or vegetarian black bean chili recipes to please the crowd. If you want some extra spice, try Mexican ground beef casserole or a spicy Italian sausage ravioli casserole -- both add an extra kick, but the heat can be adjusted to suit guests.

Easy Main Dish Recipes

Weeknight mains are a snap when you're cooking ahead with slow cooker recipes. Looking for a good Indian dish to try? Slow cooker butter chicken is a great main dish recipe to serve with naan bread. If you're looking for a sweet and spicy Asian dish, slow cooker Thai chicken or turkey goes well with a vegetable stir-fry and rice. A tame night in might call for crock pot beer pork chops to go with potatoes and broccoli. If you want a throwback meal, the slow cooker makes a mean meatloaf that's easy to put together.

Healthy Main Dish Recipes

Healthy doesn't have to mean "hard". The sheet pan can be your vessel for easy recipes that are also healthy! Chicken and roasted winter vegetables or Southwest salmon and sweet potatoes are good diabetic-friendly recipes and one-pan pork tenderloin with squash is a great low-calorie weeknight dinner. Spinach artichoke pasta with chicken is healthy and you can get it on the table in under 30 minutes. "Bowls" can be easy, healthy meals as well -- they also lend themselves to special diets. Easy vegan fried rice or fried rice-style quinoa can be a gluten-free, dairy-free, and egg-free main course.
