Ham and potato casserole. Good call.
I'd go with that, too.

Tell us how it went!

Devilled eggs. Little Smokies in BBQ sauce; cocktail meatballs (you can buy them frozen) in grape jelly mixture; a dip mix of Hormel Chili and refried beans with cream cheese or Velveeta, all can be made and kept warm in the crockpot. Sloppy Joes. Fruit salad. Fruit skewers with cream cheese or caramel dip.

Quick and easy always makes me think of maybe a salad. I expect a lot of people will bring heavier food, might be nice to have something lighter.

Personally I would sugest a mixture of your usual salad bits and bobs lettuce, cucumber maybe some bell peppers or shavings of carrot ect and then add nuts (walnuts usually good), feta cheese, grapes/raisins. It's cheap, easy, can't really get it wrong and if you grab two different dressing normally get two for a quid at the supermarket and just put the bottles by the side people can choose what they want. I would suggest maybe get a vinegar based on and an oil based on to cover your bases and everyone's happy. :)

Also i'm new two. Second post :)

Greetings and welcome, txmom and amazondebs.

Tx, how about a batch of brownies? It doesn't seem to matter how many brownies show up, they're nearly always welcome to the pot luck. Maybe a batch with nuts and one without nuts. Don't really even have to frost them, but that's a plus.

How about a 6 cup salad!

1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup mandarin orange segments, drained
1 cup crushed pineapple, drained
1 cup green seedless grapes
1 cup sour cream
1 cup white miniature marshmallows

Dump, stir, refrigerate!

Mix it up 3 or 4 hours before serving time so the marshmallows dissolve into the salad.

This is a little different: Paula Deen's Orange Brownies. They're really delicious.
