Potluck for a Crowd Request

thesandwichlife | Aug 11, 2010 05:25 PM

O.k., o.k., I've been poring over the potluck threads but I still can't make up my mind. We're going to have a house concert later in September and we usually start them with a potluck. We make a main dish kind of thing and everyone brings everything else. In the past we've done pulled pork, a mixed grill of sausages, coq au vin, that Will Owen (is that right?) pork recipe, cassoulet and probably something else I can't remember. The pork dishes are good because you can spread cheap pork a long way....money is always a consideration. At Christmas I've done a big ham but that doesn't seem right for this time of year. It's best if it can be done totally ahead because we're usually dealing with the band and people getting here and the like. I like to have something I'm excited about...and that lots of sides go with...I just can't come up with anything. Oh, and we usually have 50 people or so---I figure on about 40 servings as there's lots of stuff....

Any ideas?
