favorite meals to make for groups of people.

One thing Ben and I wanted when we moved out of our tiny downtown apartment was a big table that would seat a lot of people.  We found one at World Market (on sale!) a year ago that we loved and have been happy with it ever since! It's made Sunday dinners with friends, football parties, and throwing baby showers a whole lot easier since we finally have room to spread out. Not to mention, we finally had the room to invite the 3(!!!) sets of missionaries in our ward over for dinner.

Anyway, over the past year as we've invited friends over for dinners, we've discovered some pretty great main dish recipes that have proved themselves worthy of being consistent, fairly easy, delicious, and can feed quite the crowd!

Chili & cornbread.
Lasagna Soup & Rolls.
Baked Potato Bar - baked potatoes, chili, cheese, green onions, salsa, sour cream, etc.
Lemon Chicken & Rice.
Easy Broccoli & Beef.
Chicken Breast Pierre & Rice.
Creamy Tomato & Spinach Pasta.
Cheeseburger Pasta.
Spaghetti with Meatballs.
Grilled Chicken Chinese Kabobs & Rice.
Smoked Ribs and Baked Beans.
Hawaiian Haystacks.
Taco Salad - chips, lettuce, chili, cheese, salsa, sour cream, green onions, ranch dressing, etc.
Cafe Rio Salads.
Panini sandwiches and soup.

Do you have a favorite meal you serve to large groups?

  1. A taco bar is one of my favorites for big groups--my husband would make some carne asada on the grill, and the rest of it is just a matter of setting out toppings and sides, not too hard when you're having 20+ people over!
