Office Potluck - what to bring?

  • 1 Post By spring1onu

We are having an office potluck in a couple of weeks and I don't know what to bring. There are several vegetarians in the office, so I'd like to make something that is vegetarian-friendly. I am thinking quiche, veggie chili, veggie lasagne.. any other ideas?

One of my coworkers is already bringing mac'n'cheese, so that's out. We don't have a stove/oven in my office and only a small microwave, so anything that isn't good at room temp or can't be heated in a crock pot is out as well.

We used to have a coworker who was know for these...miss them!
Hummus and/or tahini with pita bread cut into triangles? This is easy to transport and doesn't need heating.

Cream cheese/salsa mixed and rolled into tortillas, then sliced into bite-size pieces, held together with toothpicks.

Were you leaning towards an entree?

I like the pita w/hummus idea, just in case anyone's vegan.
This will leave the vegans out, but I suggest deviled eggs.

Unless it's a small and not well ventilated office, then I need to rethink this...

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
I would just bring dessert.
I just want to do what I want to do when I want to do it.
id bring reed(tube) wine

chocolate cake or rolls. If you want to go all fancy, you can make different butters to go with the rolls (honey butter, herb butter, garlic butter, etc.)
we usually have thanksgiving potlucks, but for some reason its cancelled this year.

any who last year i made sweet potatoe pie. This year i was making spice pumpkin cake with cream cheese frosting.

when we have potlucks people bring all kinds of grub. We have no oven or stove, but lots of outlets. people bring their crockpots, rice cookers, ect. We always have a full spread. We have full on meals!

Also because we have so many cultures here, folks tend to bring something they grew up with, we have chinese, korean, sri lankan, filipino, spanish, ect.
The problem is, my immediate boss had this brilliant idea to do a "team" lunch for the whole office. My team is 3-4 people and the office is 50+. She thinks it will inspire other teams to do the same. Not bloody likely.

Saria, that recipe looks delicious, but not something I'd waste on my office. I know that sounds terrible, but I don't think they'd appreciate it. Have no fear though, I've got squash on my list for the farm market this weekend.
Green bean casserole.

But maybe that's just because I love green bean casserole.

Is anyone making/bringing salad? As a vegetarian I would make a meal out of salad and Mac & cheese.

I also agree dessert would be good
Ah, it all makes sense now. Goldy is the puppet master!

I just saw a recipe for a warm cream cheese salad. Looked so good. The cream cheese was cut into small cubes and coated with nuts, and it had pomegranate seeds in it.

It was advertising Philly cream cheese so maybe you could Google it.
