  • Bring a salad. Bags of lettuce often come complete with dressing, dried berries, cheese, etc. No need to buy extra ingredients. Just pour it all in a bowl and it will cost you about $3.

  • Can you bake brownies? 2 boxes of mix is only around $3. You'll also need eggs and oil.

  • Baked beans is always good.Large can or two of baked beans heated in a casserole dish in the oven..if you want to get a little creative with it, throw in a chopped onion(cook it till tender on the stove first if your not going to be baking it for long),can of diced tomatoes.You can throw some bbq sauce in it to,if you want.

  • I like to make jambalaya for potlucks, 2 boxes of the sataran jambalaya rice, along with some sausage (polish sausage) and mix in a can of corn, it's really yummy and the ingredients will cost you about $10-12 bucks.

  • We are going to a potluck picnic tomorrow and I am taking just a few pounds of red seedless grapes. They were on sale and all I have to do is clean them, stick them in a ziploc and go that way I don't have to worry about leaving a bowl behind either.
