    Need some tried and true recipes for food to take to a family after the funeral. Have a great lasagna recipe already. They have small children also.

    Hi, Kimbercat
    You need to post this in the Recipe Request forum, not the Suggestions and Comments forum.

    A good lasagna dish is always very good served with garlic bread slices and a fresh green salad. Everybody likes lasagna, even children.

    And these are some other good suggestions that are always welcome, too:

    A tray with turkey, ham and cheese slices and dinner rolls, or finger mini sandwiches made with dinner rolls filled with sliced turkey, sliced ham and sliced cheese with some mayo or sandwich spread.
    A chicken salad, ham salad or egg salad.
    A pasta salad dish or scalloped potatoes, or Funeral Potatoes recipe -
    A tray with fresh veggies with Ranch dip.
    A tray with fresh cut fruits, or fruit kabobs and cheese cubes.
    Cookies, brownies or fruit bars.
    Coffe, Ice Tea, bottled water, and sugar & cream in small packets.
    Small paper plates, cups, napkins, plastic spoons, forks and knives.

    Or if you want to take some warm food, a crock pot with any cooked meat and buns are also well received.
    Or a good soup in a crock pot, rolls and bowl paper plates.

    TIP: try to take food on disposable serving plates and containers.

    Are you looking for recipes that will keep, so family can use them for dinner, etc in the coming days, or food to be consumed by friends/family immediately after the funeral?

    A lot of times family won't have much of an appetite.

    I'd take some homemade bread or bagels with cream cheese/jelly and coffees/teas and some fruit.

    Fruit salad would be good.

    I have and, quite recently, fresh breads and rolls with whipped butter.
