POTLUCK FAVORITES Thread

I need to mix it up or at least expand my repertoire.

What do you usually bring to a potluck?

What have you eaten at a potluck that you've really liked but maybe don't have a recipe for?

Please & Thank you!

Re: POTLUCK FAVORITES Thread

I almost always bring homemade rolls and homemade cinnamon rolls. The rest is variable, but usually a big bowl of fresh fruit, maybe a crock pot of veggies, and some sort of meat dish or casserole.

Re: POTLUCK FAVORITES Thread

I ate the best potato dish ever at my aunt's house back at Easter. I will try to get the recipe.

I always like to take something not so casserolie. Not everyone likes casseroles, but that's the most common thing to bring.

So maybe steamed vegetables, or a big bowl of those fresh green beans sautéed in olive oil and seasoned.

I also do favorites like corn casserole, sweet potatoes mashed and baked, that kind of thing.

Our cinnamon roll recipe is so time consuming. Do you usually warm them there or bring them warm? I never thought of rolls. My friend always used to make the bread/rolls but since I'm at a new parish I could do it now.

Which reminded me that my starter needs to be fed.

I like the idea of bringing non casserole type dishes. It mixes things up. My dh can never really eat most casseroles so he is so grateful when he sees some veggies.

I love a yummy taco salad. I haven't had/or made one in ages.

I once made a pizza dip in a small crockpot and that got cleared out in two minutes by the kids. That was kid specific type recipe though.

Re: POTLUCK FAVORITES Thread

I love to make salads--pasta or potato or broccoli or something like that. Or apple crisp or cookies or some kind of easy and semi-healthy dessert, or rolls. I haven't been to a potluck in a long time though, not sure why.

Re: POTLUCK FAVORITES Thread

Our cinnamon rolls take a long time too. (So do the rolls) But! You can let them get all the way to the final rise, then stick them in the fridge (covered) and leave them until the morning. They will slowly do the last rise in the fridge and you can pop them right in the oven. We bring warm, because the oven is usually super busy there.

We might be in a weird place but casseroles aren't super common here for potlucks. There might be 1 or 2, but not a lot and many other options. People here tend to bring meat dishes for the main course, so you could do something like that. Common ones--ham, turkey, meatloaf, meatballs, fried chicken, pulled pork, or pork lion.

ETA--we have a church dinner week. I plan on bringing rolls, cinnamon rolls, grapes, and pulled pork.

I would love someone forever if they brought fried chicken. I've never seen it happen here though.

People make lots of chili. Not sure about the new parish though. My friend used to make the best meatballs but then she moved.

I have never seen cinnamon rolls at a potluck. I may be moving north soon.
