It is very nice to go to a party, and even nicer if you bring some food to the party. Here are a few ideas to bring to a potluck:
- Spanish frittata. This is a winner on all accounts: it is tasty, easy to make, cheap, and vegetarian. To feed 6 to 8 as a part of a buffet, you will need about three large potatoes, three large onions, nine eggs, salt, olive oil, a handful of chopped Gruyere, and a small pot of patience.
- Pasta, zucchini, beans, and chorizo salad. Continuing the Spanish theme, you can make a wonderfully tasty dish by frying chorizo, chopped zucchini, and beans, and mixing it all with some cooked pasta.
- Hummus. Leaving Spain, we are off to one of the Arabic countries. At the party we went to, this was quite a hit, so I will surely be doubling the quantities for next time. The Turkish bread I bought was perfect to scoop the hummus.
- Double chocolate cookies. Chocolate, butter, eggs, and sugar. Even if you make two cardinal mistakes, this will still taste great. Brutti ma buoni is the motto here.
