10 Dishes No Old-fashioned Potluck Was Complete Without

5) Banana Wafer Pudding

The simple concoction of banana pudding layered with chopped bananas, vanilla wafers, and whipped cream has been a potluck favorite for decades because almost no one doesn’t love the combination.

4) Cheeseball

Whether covered in pecans or covered in hot jezebel sauce, cheeseballs were never not on the menu at a potluck.

3) Jello Fruit Salad

Canned fruit in lime Jell-o and dishes like Dr. Pepper Cherry Jell-o Salad and 7-Up Salad all had their places at potlucks.

2) Blondies

This recipe is a cinnamon take on blondies, but we can remember butterscotch and apple variations as well.

1) Deviled Eggs

Every family had a different “classic” recipe for this party food staple, but this one is always a hit.
