What to bring to Easter dinner?

We have to drive about 2 hours away to my husbands family's for Easter. I asked them what to bring and they said just green olives. But I would like to contribute a little more than that! They are making ham and chicken, a cheesey potato dish, a vegetable, a cold salad, rolls and pie. Any ideas on what else I could bring? Thanks!

  • Deviled eggs, green beans in a crock pot, maybe a cake or something festive? Google "cake baked in egg shells." Especially if lots of young kids will be there, that kinda thing is always neat.

  • Drinks you don't want to go that far with anything that needs to be refrigerated.

  • Green bean casserole for starters. Or maybe Easter-themed cookies? Jello Cake (but get the cool whip at a store close to your destination, the place upon the cake right before serving).

  • Something dessert-y? Usually hosts have the main dishes covered, and there are usually people who love to bring potato salads and other side dishes, so I love to bring the sweets, haha. I always bring bread pudding or apple crisp, but this year I want to bring chocolate meringue pie - it's actually a lot easier than I once thought!

    I'm going to have to look up that cake in eggshell thing, though, sounds interesting! :)

  • I'd bring some white wine or cookies. Nothing that would need refrigeration til you get there.

  • Besides your appetite, a couple bottles of wine and maybe another dessert.

  • Fresh fruit. Cut it and slice it up once you are there.

  • deviled eggs, another pie or cake, extra eggs for the kids to hunt, wine for the grown ups, soda for the kids, or bottled water for the non drinkers.
