At work we do a monthly birthday lunch potluck. For this month, the birthday person has asked that instead of lunch, we do a brunch-themed potluck, because she loves breakfast/brunch.
Potlucks at lunch present a challenge (at least to me), because most of what I tend to cook doesn't deal well with waiting several hours before being served. This is going to especially true for brunch: what can I make the night before, bring into work, and still taste and look good when served at 10am?
While I have a few ideas (cinnamon buns baked that morning...?), I'm looking for good ideas/recipes. It needs to be something I can mostly or fully assemble the night before; cooked the night before, or at least doesn't need much cooking since I leave for work fairly early; that can be easily transported; and that will be very tasty (obviously) and perhaps somewhat unique (I'm in Minnesota, and while the palates here aren't the most adventurous, they are also not completely flat.
Oh - enough for about 14 people.
Thank you in advance!
