One-Dish Foods for Your Southern Wedding? Yes, Of Course!

1 Comment

A lot of brides and grooms think that “wedding-worthy” food has to be really sophisticated. They also often feel the pressure to have fancy dishes because they think that’s what their guests expect when it comes to wedding cuisine.

While that might be valid in some circumstances (e.g. very elegant and luxurious black-tie weddings), the truth is that most weddings can be splendidly successful events with menus featuring dishes that are delicious but simple.

In fact, recent wedding trends have shown that most wedding guests wish the food to be simply good – they don’t actually expect fancy dishes, and they are frequently happier with classic foods that remind them of home.

One-dish entrée are a perfect example of this.

What are some great one-dish options you should consider including in your Southern wedding? We have some ideas for you – so read on and find out more.

  • Pork chops with squash and potatoes. This simple dish is comforting and delicious – and you really don’t need more from an entrée on your wedding menu. When made by a skilled caterer, it’s hard to go wrong with this dish. It’s an option that’s bound to be appreciated by many of your guests!
  • Baked pasta with tomato sauce. Baked pasta has something almost magical about it: it is universally appreciated by adults and children alike, it’s easy to pull off, and it’s satisfying for everyone. The secret lies in using quality tomato sauce and adding basil to it – this simple dish will explode with flavor and it will be a truly good option for your vegetarian guests too!
  • Chicken rice bowls. You really can’t go wrong with this one either: it has chicken (which, as everyone knows, is universally popular), it has rice, and it has vegetables. It’s a great one-dish entrée that will remind your guests of homemade dinners and cozy family moments. Precisely what you want your wedding food to achieve, right?
  • Bean cassoulet and cornmeal dumplings. Looking for a warm and comforting dish that even people who are not familiar it will appreciate? This one-dish dinner is usually made with three types of beans (like garbanzo, white, and butter beans) – but feel free to go wild with as many as you want for a bit of extra variety.
