So we're having an office potluck next week, about 9 people. Most everyone else signs up for really easy things like guacamole, cookies, storebought stuff, etc. I usually kind of end up doing the main component of the meal or we just end up with snacks. Here's my problem, I have one vegetarian, one gluten-free person, and one general picky eater. None of them expects me to accomodate their food restrictions (well maybe except the picky eater, she whines alot), but I don't like bringing something that I know not everyone can eat. I have a small microwave available to use for reheating, crockpots, electric skillet, and warming tray all available to use for heating/serving. I have the Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Cookbook, and was looking for ideas there. I found a chicken sour cream enchilada casserole and chicken & shrimp jambalaya recipes which seem pretty easy, and probably everyone except the vegetarian would eat. I also found that they have a polenta recipe designed for the crockpot, which I had thought of, but wasn't sure if it would adapt well to the crockpot. Apparently it must. This would be ok for everyone, but it's just a basic polenta with some parmesan or fontina cheese, not really a main dish by itself.
So I'm looking for suggestions on a dish that might appeal to all, or maybe ideas for what I could serve with/to go over the polenta, that would make it more of a main course. Slow cooker dishes would be great, but I could work around with the other appliances mentioned above too. And preferably not a lot of prep time necessary in the morning, like no more than 20 minutes. Oh, and the picky eater hates beans (which otherwise would be great for the other 2 people), and nothing too exotic like curry. She's a chicken, beef, mashed potatoes & mac & cheese kind of person.
Thanks for any and all ideas!
(And I will try looking through some of the older slowcooker/potluck threads too.)
