The beauty of ham is that you most oftentimes buy it pre-cooked. So all you need to do is reheat it to an internal temperature of 140°F. You can also enjoy pre-cooked ham cold.


Leg and shoulder cuts of lamb can be cooked ahead of time and then reheated when ready to serve.

Mac and cheese

Mac and cheese can be assembled about two days beforehand, stored in the fridge, and then baked when ready to serve.

Green bean casserole

Green bean casserole can be assembled without the onions, refrigerated, and baked when ready to serve.


Mashed potatoes can be made completely in advance and reheated in a microwave with extra butter. If you're making roasted potatoes, you can boil them in advance and store them in the fridge or freezer with some oil.


You can chop your veggies ahead of time, as well as par-cook or blanch them ahead of time, if needed.

Pasta salads

You can make pasta salad or macaroni salad a few days in advance as it can stay fresh for three to five days in an airtight container in the fridge.


Deviled eggs will stay fresh for two to four days in the fridge. Egg salad will last about five days in the fridge. Hard-boiled eggs (including dyed eggs) will last about seven days in the fridge. While pickled eggs can last up to four months in the fridge.

Dinner rolls

Dinner rolls can last five to seven days at room temperature. For longer storage, you can freeze your dinner rolls and thaw them when you're ready to serve them.
