Default Bringing Holiday Treats To Work

My turn to bring Holiday treats to work is on December 20th. Food can be hot or cold, simple or something that requires more preparation. But I am stumped! I thought about buying something premade from the store, then bounced back to the idea of homecooking. The employee lounge has a large fridge, stove, microwave and outlets for crock pots etc. Any suggestions? Does not necessarily need to be healthy as it's not for me (but for my coworkers) and so I won't be eating it. Unless it's fruit or veggies but we've had a few of those trays already. I'd like to do something different.


Thanks!

Is it for lunch? A holiday sweet treat? Or just an appetizer?

It can be anything (treat/snack, breakfast food or lunch) as it will be out and accessible for eating between 10:00 and 1:00.

You have alot of options unless something specific is asked for.

You could do a meat/cheese tray and include healthy meats and cheeses. Include healthier crackers and/or small breads. A tray of veg and fruit (make them unusual items if not too costly). I would include maybe a small selection of treats, too. Or any of the above.

Good ideas! I am still liking the veggie tray idea just cos it IS refreshing! And maybe this is just cos I'm craving them but tacos sound real good too! But what could I substitute for ground beef? Veggie sausage? Or is this too compilcated you think?

You could make chili in the crock pot and bring sour cream, cheese etc for people to top it with. Chili is great for winter, and you could either make a veggie chili or use ground turkey to make it lower cal.

Oh, chili is a fantastic suggestion! By itself, it can actually be quite lean (especially if you're more heavy-handed with the beans than with the meat), but those who want to "zhoozh" it up with the sour cream, crackers, and/or cheese can do so too.

I love that idea so much it makes me want to go cook some chili too.

Turkey is always good for a beef replacement.

I'm liking the chili idea as well. Hadn't thought about that one but it would be a lot easier than tacos, and people can still dress it up a bit with various toppings, if they so desire. And turkey as an alternative for ground beef, great idea! Much lighter on the tummy too.
