Not every potluck is a lunch or evening event. Breakfast potlucks are common in workplaces, schools, churches and many other places where people gather. While it might seem difficult to come up with shareable breakfast foods, there are many simple things you can bring to a breakfast potluck. Here are some ideas:

Easy Egg Muffins

Egg muffins are the perfect protein-packed dish to bring to a breakfast potluck. They are quick to make and incredibly versatile. You can use countless combinations of vegetables, meats, cheeses and spices to create your own. Some of the most popular ingredients to add to egg muffins include ham, bacon, mushrooms, spinach, onions, tomatoes, fresh basil, cheddar cheese, parmesan cheese and bell peppers.

All you need is a nonstick muffin tin and an oven to make these egg muffins. Scramble the eggs, mix in the ingredients, fill the muffin cups and bake for about 15 to 20 minutes or until the eggs are set. Share at the potluck and freeze the leftovers.

Simple Scones

Scones are a popular breakfast treat with countless flavor varieties. No matter what you want to add to your scones, whether you like blueberries, currants or even lavender, the basic recipe for the dough is simple. All you need is flour, baking powder, unsalted butter, an egg, vanilla extract, granulated sugar and a bit of salt.

Combine the dry ingredients together in one bowl and the wet ingredients in another. Mix both mixtures and any add-ins like berries. You can shape the dough into the classic triangle shape or simply make rounded shapes by hand. Make each one approximately the same size so they cook evenly. Bake for about 20 minutes and you have a delicious and simple homemade treat for your breakfast potluck.

Fruit Salad

Don’t underestimate the power of fresh fruit at breakfast. For those who prefer to eat something on the lighter side, assemble a large fruit salad full of your favorite colorful ingredients. Some suggestions for a breakfast fruit salad include cantaloupe and honeydew melon and banana, fresh strawberries, apples and peaches.

Mandarin oranges are a great way to add some citrus to the mix without overpowering the other flavors and pineapple adds a sweet kick without too much extra moisture. Try to slice up each fruit into pieces roughly equal in size so it’s easier to eat. For a fun aesthetic, use a melon baller rather than a knife. Keep the fruit salad in the fridge until it’s ready to serve so that it’s as fresh as possible for your potluck.

A breakfast potluck is a great opportunity to share your favorite dishes. Try these ideas for your next gathering and have a delicious breakfast with friends, colleagues or family.
