My Go-To Potluck Recipes

As we enter potluck season – otherwise known as gain 5 pounds season – it can be a little intimidating bringing something to the table. If you’re anything like me you want to be 1) extra and 2) not sitting in the kitchen all day. Potlucks should be fun! So after years of being the laziest cook and also liking to blow minds when I show up, I have perfected and am sharing my favourite potluck recipes. You can thank me later.

The Most Impressive, Laziest Potluck Items For Your Busy Potluck Season

Honey Basil Fruit Salad

The first time I made this, it was so easy that I thought I should have made something more extravagant for a brunch potluck. Little did I know this would be a huge hit! Pair it with some honey whipped cream (whipping cream, honey, mix it up) and everyone will be extremely impressed. And because it’s fruit, you can pretty much bring it to every potluck without any complaints.

The most popular potluck item and one of the most delicious. And you can add jam to make it real festive! I put blood orange jam and served it with the Trader Joe’s Orange Cranberry Crisps and it was demolished in 30 minutes. Cheesy and carb-y, everyone gets excited when they see bread-wrapped brie. I make this for almost every potluck event because it takes less than 10 minutes and travels easy.

Cream Cheese Roll Ups

I can’t really take credit for this one. My mother is the one who has made this a staple at every event. I get requests for it! This recipe is perfect for a kitchen novice. We don’t use the sour cream or seasoning in this recipe, but we do add chicken, and it’s phenomenal. I could eat the entire pan by myself. Actually, next time I make this I might make two pans and have a little “Roll Ups For One” kind of night. It’s that good.

Chewy Maple Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are so good that I often end up eating more of the dough than I use to make the cookies. It’s not exactly a “lazy” recipe, but if I can do it so can you. Broma Bakery is my Bible for amazing recipes, and this one seriously kills. Imagine chewy, gooey chocolate chip cookies with that perfect hint of maple. I’m making these for a potluck event next week and I’m already excited to make a double batch.
