Looking for Ideas...PotLuck Wedding!

Just got an invitation to a wedding. Its a small, casual wedding of a friend. It is a late Saturday afternoon event. Kids are invited. Any suggestions on what to bring for food? I'm not even sure how many people - it is being held at someone's house so my assumption is 20-30. I am going to most likely be traveling the day of the wedding so it also should be portable. Thanks!!

  • Brownies, cookies, something that does not need to be refrigerated or heated.

  • I would bring something that could be about 12. I think it's an appropriate amount since everyone else will also be bringing food. Any theme to the wedding? Maybe something along those lines?

  • I had a potluck wedding and the biggest hit was with the ones who brought wild rice hotdish in their crockpots. Alot of people will be bringing bars and cookies so maybe something hot or you could bring a bread basket with a variety of rolls

  • If you have room you could always take the food in a cooler, but if not, I would say brownies. Here's a great recipe.
    Heavenly Hash Brownies
    4 eggs, beaten
    2 cups sugar
    1 ½ cup flour
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 cup butter
    1/3 cup cocoa
    1 ½ cup pecans, chopped 1 (6 ¼ oz/) bag miniature marshmallows
    Chocolate frosting:
    ½ cup butter, melted
    1/3 cup whole mil
    3 Tablespoons cocoa
    1 (16 oz.) box xxxx confectioners sugar
    1 teaspoon vanilla

  • continued:
    Directions:
    Preheat oven to 350. In large bowl combine eggs, sugar, flour and vanilla extract. Melt butter in small saucepan; add cocoa and mix. Add butter and cocoa mixture to egg mixture and beat well. Stir in nuts. Pour into greased 9x13” pan. Bake 25-30 minutes. In meantime, make frosting. As soon as brownies are removed from oven, sprinkle with marshmallows and return pan to oven till marshmallows are slightly melted. Pour frosting over marshmallows, gently spreading to cover. Cool before cutting.

    Frosting:
    Combine butter, milk and cocoa. Beat in confectioner’s sugar, and vanilla.

  • A Veggie and/or fruit tray, or how bout a meat/cheese plate. Ziploc bag it, throw it in an insulated bag with your serving plate and a container of dip (sour cream, cream cheese and ranch is an awesome but simple dip for veggies and yogurt with whipped cream for fruit) and your serving tray. Assemble there!
