My friend is having a goodbye potluck/picnic outdoors this Saturday. She'll probably grill up burgers and sausages, and we're all bringing sides. I was thinking about bringing mac n cheese, as it's such a crowd pleaser, but I'm nervous about it congealing up at room temperature. Has anyone attempted to bring mac n cheese to an outdoors party? are there particular recipes that would make the dish better suited to room temperature?
Otherwise, I was thinking of making the Cook's Country barbeque macaroni salad or maybe a red cabbage slaw. Open to other ideas of easy sides for a crowd!
