What Do You Like to Bring to a Barbecue?

This weekend I am going to a potluck-style barbecue. I have yet to speak with the host, but I hope he asks me to bring an appetizer or dessert. Not only do I enjoy making these types of dishes, but I also think they require the least amount of work while at the party. An appetizer has to be ready upon arrival and the best potluck dessert needs no oven time. How about you? What do you like to bring to a barbecue or potluck?

Everyone always requests my desserts, so I always bring them! If not, I will bring a pasta salad or a potato salad.

I like to take to my bowtie pasta salad. It's loaded full of veggies, which is usually a welcome sight from barbeque brisket, ribs, and hot dogs.

I usually just bring the alcohol. But if I must choose I pick appetizer. I like to make my stuffed jalapenos.

I make a very popular macaroni and tuna salad. It's always the first thing to go and is requested year after year. I also make a killer pound cake that delicious plain or with fresh fruit and whipped cream. That also is the first dessert to be gobbled up.

My husband makes a great coleslaw, with purple cabbage, mandarin oranges, balsamic vinegar, and just a teensy bit of mayo. The recipe makes a ton, so he only makes it for big bbq parties. I love being able to indulge in coleslaw without having to worry about it being bad for me.

My mom makes the best macaroni and cheese, so I of course use that recipe. (Upon request of course) My Apple Honey Bunt Cake is also a favorite.

My "fresh from the garden" green salad is always requested, as are my killer brownies. Sometimes I bring a dish of fresh fruit pieces for the folks who like something sweet but light.:)

I'm a big baker, too, so I almost always bring cupcakes. I'm really into decorating them so they dress up the table and don't require any serving utensils or plates!

I like to bake, so I bring dessert. Bringing the peach pound cake that was featured a day or so ago. I used super sweet white peaches and added some rum to the drizzle on top. Ummmm.

Green salad. Just something fresh that I know has only natural stuff in it.

I always bring a veggie that is healthy, like a great greek salad or green bean salad or brocolli salad. That way I know I have something healthy there. :feedme:

As a vegetarian, I always bring a meat-free main dish to share with veggies and meat-eaters alike.

Salad and Appetizer are good with BBQ. Guests can munch on appetizer while waiting for the meat to get done. And salad is always a good complement to the heavily meat-based BBQ items.
