Bring a plate...

It's Christmas party and BBQ time. What do you usually take when you are asked to bring a plate? Do you prefer the host to specify what sort of dish - salad, bread, tart, pie, dessert... or are you happiest just to take a big bag of crisps?


I always ask the host if there is anything in particular they'd like me to bring. Usually homemade garlic bread is a hit as I add finely chopped parsley and extra garlic to the butter. If taking a dessert I make ambrosia. I also take a couple of extra bottles of fizzy or juice as people who don't drink alcohol (byo) don't usually bring a drink expecting the host to supply it.


Fresh Fruit Kebabs dripped with chocolate......... just great


Halloumi and red pepper skewers - yum


Usaully a potato salad!


I take a hot kumera bake (sliced kumera baked in a cream and chicken soup mix) Its very popular.


usually a quiche, i roast some vegetables then make the quiche with them in ,top it of with asparagus


Usually a salad or a desert such as trifle... it always goes down well.


I like to take either a salad or dessert as they are easy!!


I usually make my classic cheese ball with crackers. It always gets demolished within the hour!
