Here are all the results with descriptions

Hawaiian roll sliders
All of this is probably in the store deli. Get 1/4 lb nice cheese sliced thin. Get a 1/4 lb good meat (prosciutto, ham, roast beef, etc. ) sliced thin. Grab a 12 pack of King's Hawaiian rolls. Get small squeezable bottles of mayo and deli mustard. Slice the stacks of cheese and meat quarters and slice the rolls like buns. Put a piece each of cheese and meat in each one, put back in the tray and sack. At work, just open it up and set the mayo and mustard next to it. These are DELICIOUS.

Chocolate covered strawberries
This will run you about $10. Sounds steep until you start pricing how much it costs to make casserole. Plus, all you need to do is hit the produce section of the store. Get a carton of strawberries. Near it will be a cylindrical cardboard container of chocolate especially for making these. Go home, microwave the carton, dip the strawberries in it, lay on wax paper, wait 5 minutes and you're done. Bonus: people will think you did something fancy.

Hot pepper jelly cream cheese
Everyone loves this and it's the easiest of all potluck recipes. Get a brick of cream cheese, open it up and put it on a nice plate or serving dish, open a jar of hot pepper (or otherwise offbeat) jelly and dump it on top. Surround with water crackers or other 'fancy' crackers. Done. Do make it look nice, though.

Grape salad
This one is POPULAR at potlucks. If you haven't tried it, it's going to sound weird, but just go with it. You won't be sorry. Look up the recipe, but the basics are this: mix 8 oz sour cream, 8 oz cream cheese, 1/2 cup of sugar, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract in big bowl. Add the grapes from two bunches (one red and one green looks nice). Mix. Sprinkle 1/2 c brown sugar and and chopped nuts (walnut or pecan is best) on top. Refrigerate overnight.

Yep, that's right. Biscuits. Or rolls. There are never enough breads at potlucks and this is SUPER easy. Takes 20 minutes. Get frozen rolls or biscuits in the frozen bread section of your grocery store. They should be in a bag. If you've never heard of the brand, they're probably better. Take them home, follow baking instructions, and store them to take to work tommorow. You might also bring butter and a box of plastic knives.

Cinnamon baked pears (tastes like pie! )
People will think you're a genius, but this is super easy. Cut 3 pears from stem to bottom in half. You could get away with cutting them the same direction once again. Scoop out the seed core. Put them in a casserole or cookie sheet. Fill cores with crushed walnuts (or just cover them), sprinkle with cinnamon, drizzle with honey or real maple syrup, bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees. To make things easier, just put them in the casserole dish from the get-go and let loose with the walnuts.
