I love egg dishes for potlucks. They're cheap, good hot or cold, usually can be eaten with the fingers and travel well which both are idea qualities for a potluck meal. I am going to share two of my favorites below.

Deviled eggs

Depending on the size of the egg and kind of mayo you use this recipe will run 35-40 calories per 1 deviled egg or 70-80 for two being a whole eggs worth.

  • Boil or bake desired number ofeggs to hard.
  • Cut eggs in half and put yolks in a bowl.
  • For 6 eggs add 2 tbs of dill relish, a pinch of salt, 1-2 tbs of light mayo.
  • Mix together.
  • If dry add some more mustard or pickle juice.
  • Fill egg halves and refrigerate.
  • For easiet filling put mixture into a sandwich bag and cut the corner so you can pipe into the egg halves.


Fritatta is quiche without the crust. This is actually what I brought to last week's potluck.

Each serving will be one egg plus 1/8 of the filling.

I made 2, a spinach mushroom at 85 calories a slice and an onion, red pepper cheddar at 102 calories a slice. They're also vegetarian (but not vegan) and gluten free.

  • Preheat your oven to 350.
  • Saute whatever vegetable or meat filling you want
  • Put filling in a lightly greased pie pan
  • If they are wet drain or pat with paper towels
  • Mix 8 eggs, a pinch of salt and pepper
  • Pour over filling
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until the egg is set
  • If adding cheese bake 10 minutes, top with cheese then bake additional 10 minutes
  • Let cool then cut into 8 wedges
