What would you fix to feed several people?

I have a lot of free time at my office. We have a full kitchen. I'm thinking about making a nice lunch for everyone. This would not only kill time, but I think it would be nice. There are probably about 20 people I would be feeding. What's something I could fix for lunch for this many people without spending a fortune?

  • Hmm...you could ask if everyone wanted to do a pot luck and that you would supply the food, but for them to bring in easy side dishes....that way they wouldn't have to do much, but bring in drinks or cups or chips.

    As far as something that would feed a lot.......I would do enchiladas, but I'm mexican. lol Um.....try a casserole or some type of pasta........that's all I can think of.

  • What about pulled pork sandwiches. I just bought pork tenderloin for about $16 and it would be enough to feed 20 people. You cook the pork the evening before, shred it up and add barbeque sauce in a crock pot the next day. Serve on hamburger buns with chips.

  • Spaghetti always feeds a lot for good dollar value. Since fall is quick approaching have you though about 2 or three big pots of soup and chile..some crackers and corbread.. voila. Baked potaoes with chile and fixing is good too

  • My pulled pork I do a little differently. I buy a large boston butt / shoulder roast. I put it in the crock pot and pour about 3/4 of a 12 oz bottle of your favorite bbq sauce on top. I always rough cut a large onion and add half at beginning other half one hour before done cooking. Put the crock pot on low and 6-8 houyrs later..take two forks pull the pork apart. It will be very tender. Serve on rolls or over rice. Being Texan...cornbread is required..lol.

  • Crock pot things, like stew or chili, pastas, and enchiladas are ones I do for large groups.
