IP Friendly Potluck Recipes?
 
Hello!

We're having a potluck at my job for one of my friends that is leaving and I would like to be able to bring a dish. Does anyone have an idea for something IP friendly that can feed a group of 20 or so and won't break the bank?

How about Big Mac in a Bowl?

Not really original - but I do a veggie tray. King Soopers (part of Kroger stores) has ready made ones in the produce section, but at Thanksgiving I ordered one from the deli - it was about $27. You could also do a large salad. My co workers know my diet and know that I will most likely bring veggies. One of my other co workers cooked a turkey and cut it up and brought it in.

I do the veggies spiral dish for holidays. I put sautéed mushrooms on the bottom instead of onions, slice the veggies with my mandolin and lay in spiral. I think this recipe uses potatoes but I used turnips! The turnips take longer than anything else so I put them in a pan first to soften. Pour a little bit of low sodium broth and season to your taste. The recipe calls for cheese on top (pictured) but I omit that. I've attached the pic from my Pinterest board! I used this recipe for thanksgiving and Christmas and everyone was thankful for a clean side veggie that wasn't creamed. Plus it makes a great presentation!

I have made sweet and spicy roasted rutabagas for group meals. I took this to both Thanksgiving and Christmas as a potato/sweet potato alternative and every person had a serving and many had seconds!

Cut into small cubes and toss with EVOO and spices (salt, pepper, garlic powder, cayenne, cinnamon and Splenda. I have also added curry powder.) Roast until tender. Stir occasionally and keep an eye on them once they start browning.

(I kept the cayenne on the lighter side for a group, though when I make it for home I use a bit more because we like spice-heat!)

I have also taken a cauliflower mash to sub for mashed potatoes and again, it was gone by the end of the night!

I always bring a huge veggie tray. When I chop them myself, it is much less expensive than buying pre-cut from deli.

Someone has already committed to a veggie tray so that is out but this looks delish!

I've never had or cooked a rutabaga so I may test this recipe out this weekend to make sure I'm doing it right before feeding it to my coworkers

FYI - they are often sold as "wax turnips" and look a little intimidating. They are literally covered in a waxy skin. Just peel with a vegetable peeler. They are pretty hard so use a good knife when slicing and curbing!

Just be sure they get cooked until soft- they take longer than potatoes. I do a similar spicing ( minus cinnamon and Splenda) if I am making rutabaga fries. But I love the spice/sweet combo with the roasted cubes.

OK, now I am hungry. Will have to make these with my pork chops this weekend!

What about deviled eggs with the WF mayo? My coworker has brought this to potlucks many times. It's not really a main dish if that's what you're looking for. But always a hit!

Perfect! I think I'll make deviled eggs and the baked veggies

I did a green bean/red pepper dish at Christmas that was a big hit and you could make lots of it.

Take a couple bags of frozen French-cut style green beans, sliced red peppers and put them on a baking sheet. Toss with EVOO, some garlic salt/powder, sea salt and a bit of ginger. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes at 375 turning occasionally so they cook evenly.

I made them ahead of time and warmed them up in the microwave.

Turkey meatballs with green enchilada sauce
 
I've taken turkey meatballs in a crockpot with green enchilada sauce to a potluck.
I let most of the sauce drip off my serving but the enchilada sauce didn't have added sugar so it wasn't too bad.
And for those that weren't on IP, I had sour cream on the side.

Oh, that sounds yummy! I love all these ideas. I made deviled eggs a long time ago but haven't made any lately. All these ideas are making me hungry and wanting to get in the kitchen and cook!

I made a pulled pork recipe that is IP friendly. You can make a lot and serve it alone or with buns on the side. I usually have mine mixed with sauteed cabbage (sauteed in grapeseed oil with a little red pepper flakes sprinkled in). We eat it mixed together and it is so good with some WF BBQ sauce drizzled on top. I think it would be easy to keep warm or warm up prior to serving.

This is great - we have a family party coming up on February and I'll still be on program.

I was thinking of making ratatouille, replacing shallots for the onions. I also have the Moosewood vegetarian cookbooks I was going to go thru for ideas.

I made the rutabaga puff for Thanksgiving - it got a fairly warm reception, not too many people at it. I made roasted cauliflower for Christmas.

German cucumber salad substituting sour cream with WF mayo and sugar with sweetener. I have eaten so much of it this week the roof of my mouth is raw from the vinegar!
