Simple easy meals for potlucks!
Everyone knows that potluck dinners are so easy, but what if you have nothing to take along? An hour before you need to leave, you realise you havent made anything. So what do you do?!?!
What most people think of, is a salad. And of course this is a quick easy dish that everyone will enjoy, but there is a huge chance that others will bring that too. But if you are completely stuck, go ahead and make a salad. You just throw in whatever you have in the fridge, and ta da! Easy dish.
Another easy thing is to make is cheese or savoury muffins. These are simple and fast, and you will definitely have the ingredients. And you can find a recipe in just about any cookbook.
If you happen to have a pizza base in freezer, whip up a simple pizza. You can cook it when you get to the dinner, or cook it before and warm it up later. It is a good idea to keep a pizza base or two in the freezer for easy lunches and dinners.
Simple pastas always work well. Any shaped pasta is fine, and just use a jar of sauce, or make your own. Homemade sauce is usually a lot nicer, and its not very hard to make.
If you have avacados, cream cheese, or something interesting, make some dips, as they always go down well. Or take along crackers and cheese.
For a desert, fruit salad, a simple apple crumble, cupcakes, cake, jelly, chocolate covered fruit, or precooked piklets are easy.
Next time you have a potluck lunch or dinner, grab whatever is in your cupboard and throw together something easy. Because it is never as good to go and buy something from the shop.
