Potluck Galore: What Dishes to Bring?

Potluck PartyPotluck parties, whether they are for birthdays or reunions, are an exciting way to bond and meet your friends. You can catch up with everyone and even have fun meeting new faces. You may be excited about it, but there may be a chance where you will catch yourself feeling anxious about it. You do not know yet what to bring.

That’s okay! Your friends may be feeling the same way. But the key to impressing everyone without going board is choosing a classic favourite and then giving it a twist. Here are some of the dish ideas that you can bring to your next potluck.

Homemade Pizza

Pizza is a party favourite, so you may want to bring some. But this time, why not make it yourself? That way, you are giving your friends a much more personal fare. This should not be that difficult, especially if you have been making bread in the past. Go for classic favourites such as pepperoni. If you want to take it a step further, you may want to use sardines.


A potluck will never be complete without a type of chowder. It may seem easy to make, but if you want it to make so special, you need to start from scratch. You can go for the classic clam chowder. Make it really creamy, but watch out if any of your friends have lactose intolerance.

Customised Cake

It is a party, so there should be a cake! You can go for the mini cupcakes if you want your contribution to be cutesy and easy to eat. But if you want to give your cake a twist, you can never go wrong with an ice cream cake. You can even go online and design your own cake.

These are just some of the things to keep in mind if you want to make your potluck contribution interesting. Just be creative and do not be afraid to find new dishes.
