Office potlucks are about coming together as a team. And what better way to foster camaraderie than with some scrumptious food?

The trouble is, coming up with a winning idea isn’t always easy. But with this list of the best potluck ideas for work, you’ll never run out of options. 

You’ll find plenty of easy recipes for a crowd. Be prepared to be the star of the show with these tasty dishes!

1. Deviled Eggs

Deviled eggs are a classic you can’t go wrong with. And nobody knows how to make them better than Paula Deen! Sinfully good and super fresh, this copycat recipe is the best of the best. 

They’re made with sweet pickle relish, tons of mayo, and a hint of mustard. The filling is incredible. And the sprinkle of paprika and sweet gherkin topping is the perfect touch. 

2. Taco Casserole 

The last time I brought this to a work potluck, everyone raved about it. It’s bursting with fresh and savory Mexican flavors. 

There’s ground beef, veggies, spices, and two types of cheese all layered between flour tortillas. As a bonus, avocado, tomatoes, and crushed tortilla chips top it off. 

Not only does it feed a crowd, but it’s also make-ahead friendly

3. Oreo Cookie Balls

When you make these for a potluck, I recommend doubling the batch. Because once your household catches sight of these, they’ll try and sneak a bunch!

But don’t worry, these Oreo cookie balls are easier than pie. These no-bake treats only require three simple ingredients. They’re decadent, irresistible, and fuss-free.

4. Reuben Hand Pies

These savory hand pies are impressive. On the outside, there’s a buttery, flaky crust with a crunchy bite. Hiding inside is a filling that tastes like a classic Reuben.

Serve this elevated classic and watch all your co-workers swoon. 

5. Loaded Baked Potato Salad

Potato salad is a crowd-pleasing favorite you can’t go wrong with. But if you want to take yours up a notch, make this version. 

Enter your email below & we'll send it straight to your inbox.

These fork-tender spuds come smothered in a creamy base and loaded with bacon, green onions, and cheddar cheese. It’s just like a deconstructed baked potato. 

You only need 10 ingredients to whip up this show-stopping salad. 

6. Chili Cheese Dip 

Watch out, your co-workers will eye this dip from across the room. So once it hits the table, you’d better stand back!

This hot and savory dip oozes with a delectable flavor. And guess what? It only takes four ingredients and 15 minutes. 

Don’t forget the chips for dipping!

7. Seriously Fudgy Homemade Brownies 

Even your co-worker who says they don’t eat sweets will reach for a second square of these brownies. They’re some of the fudgiest and tastiest around!

Dense, chewy, and thick, these treats are extraordinary. They’re even loaded with extra chocolate chips. 

8. Grape Jelly Meatballs

Grape jelly meatballs are an oldie but a goodie. Each tender meatball comes smothered in a sweet and tangy sauce. They have just a hint of heat to balance out the flavor.

They’re very easy to make, and they serve a crowd. So they’re great for a work potluck! 

9. Masala Mac and Cheese

Sure, everyone’s had mac and cheese before. But have you had it with masala? It’s unforgettable!

The cheesy comforting pasta packed with Indian flavors is such an incredible twist. You just have to try it!

10. Hawaiian Rolls Buffalo Chicken Sliders

How about a tray of butter-brushed fluffy buns oozing with shredded buffalo chicken and cheese? I thought you’d say yes!

These finger-licking good sliders will disappear fast at the potluck. So grab one while you can.

11. Pepperoni Pizza Rolls

Turn your work potluck into a pizza party with these pepperoni rolls. The soft, chewy dough gets rolled up with classic toppings.

Even the biggest work party Grinch will be all smiles when they eat these. 

12. BLT Pasta Salad

Every potluck needs a pasta salad centerpiece. So make it one to remember with a little love from a BLT. Rotini tendrils are smothered in a creamy dressing with bacon, tomatoes, lettuce, and green onion.

This recipe takes the monotony out of a basic pasta salad and makes it intriguing. 

13. Mixed Berry Muffins

Store-bought muffins say “I remembered to bring something last minute.” But these freshly baked berry delights show how much you care!

The fluffy and tender consistency is heavenly. There’s also a sweet burst of strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries in every bite.

14. Red and Green Enchiladas

Half of your co-workers voted for red sauce. The other half voted for green. So what should you do? Go with both!

These shredded chicken enchiladas will make everyone happy. You’ll love them too because they’re super easy.

15. Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms

These mushrooms are the perfect little finger foods to socialize while you eat. They’re jam-packed with sausage, cream cheese, Parmesan, and crispy breadcrumbs.

You can’t eat just one! So it’s a good thing there are plenty to go around.

16. Spinach Artichoke Dip

Who doesn’t love spinach artichoke dip? The flavor combination is downright addicting. It has marinated artichokes and bacon bits all mixed into a creamy cheese base.

Crackers, crostini, and veggie sticks all work great as dippers. No matter what you choose, you’ll come back home with an empty bowl.

17. Apple Spice Cake

For a sweet bite, bring apple spice cake to the party. Juicy baked apples with a hint of cinnamon are suspended inside the tender cake. A delicious layer of vanilla cream cheese frosting is smeared on top.

This fall dessert comes with plenty of servings. And you make it in a pan, so it’s easy to transport.

18. Fancy Tea Sandwiches

Need something a little on the fancy side? Go with a classic and make a stack of these tea sandwiches. 

Creamy chicken salad with apples and tarragon is layered in between sliced bread with the crusts removed.

These old-school party finger foods look so classy. And yet, you can’t help but indulge in more than one!

19. Mexican Fruit Salad (Pico de Gallo Fruta)

Want to bring a super easy dish with a wow factor? Make this Mexican fruit salad. From the fruit to the spices, it’s top-notch. Watermelon, mango, jicama, and more get tossed in Tajin. 

It’s sweet, juicy, spicy, salty, and fresh. This vibrant mix packs a flavorful punch.

20. No-Bake Energy Balls

After all the good food, a potluck can make you feel like you need a nap. So do everyone a favor and whip up a batch of these energy balls. 

They’re the easiest thing in the world to make. Plus, they sneak in a little bit of chocolate, too.

21. Thai Peanut Chicken Ramen Noodle Salad

This noodle salad is crazy good. I mean, it’s fantastic!

Other potluck dishes will weigh you down. But this one leaves you feeling revitalized and ready to tackle your workload.  

The ramen noodles are full of fresh flavors, shredded chicken, and a spicy peanut sauce. It’s so yummy!

22. Crab Casserole

Looking for an impressive potluck casserole with little to no effort?? I have just what you need!

This recipe is a creamy concoction of imitation crab, sour cream, mayo, and a ton of cheese. You can throw it together with less than 10 ingredients in 30 minutes. 

23. Peanut Butter and Jelly Blondies

Bring out the kid in everyone with these peanut butter and jelly blondies. They mix a childhood favorite with a classic dessert. So you know they’re sure to please. Plus, they call for mostly pantry staples.
