What Do You Bring to a Breakfast Potluck?

When planning food for a potluck, you have to have in mind that you’re practically serving a small village. So you need something that can easily please a crowd.

And breakfast or brunch potluck is no different than any potluck, really!

You may like your eggs super spicy, but you need to be mindful of other people, too.

For a dish that everyone will be raving about, stick to the basics. Classic ingredients, nothing too exotic. Keep the seasonings mild, and don’t experiment too much.

For breakfast potluck recipes, you can also include traditional frittatas, bread, muffins, and casseroles.

And if you haven’t got that many ideas, the next recipe will help you out.

No Cook Breakfast Potluck Ideas

Don’t have time for cooking? Here are some great potluck ideas that you can bring along for your breakfast gathering. And none of them requires an oven.

1. Mexican Fruit Salad Bowls

Fruit salad is a great choice for healthy breakfasts and potlucks. I mean, it’s fruit. How can you possibly go wrong with that? And who doesn’t want fruit for breakfast? 

It is on the lighter side, creamy, and oh-so-sweet. Since it’s breakfast, I suggest you top it with crunchy granola. That will not only give this sweet recipe some texture, but it will also be more filling.

This recipe makes individual bowls. Which is pretty convenient if you know the number of people. If not, then layer it up in a large bowl, the trifle style. Everyone will be thrilled!

2. Muesli



Everybody needs some muesli for breakfast. It is crunchy, delicious, and packed with nutrients.

And the best part? It is pretty quick to make, too! Just 10 minutes of mixing it all up, and your big jar of crunchiness is ready to be served.

If you follow the instructions, you’re in for some treat. However, feel free to customize it to taste.  Cereals, nuts, dried fruits, fresh fruits… the sky’s the limit.

3. No Bake Pumpkin Spice Latte Breakfast Cookies

Pumpkin, oats, peanut butter, maple syrup and chia seeds. Crunchy, chewy, and incredibly nourishing at the same time.

4. Blueberry Almond Oatmeal Overnight Oats

If bringing to a potluck, you might want to make these overnight oats in a larger bowl. That way, everyone can scoop their own portion.

5. Granola Bars

Granola bars can be a great option for a morning potluck. Plus, they’re super convenient to eat, too.

These hand-held breakfast bars are actually much softer than your usual granola. Which makes them even more tempting.
