Potluck

EmmaJ.:
Help!  I need inspiration.

We are having a potluck lunch here at work to say goodbye to a lovely lady who is retiring.  I want to bring a dish that will **wow** everyone.

I've done deviled eggs and baked beans at the last two potlucks and, even though there were no leftovers, I thought they were kind of dull.  Or ordinary.

Can anyone suggest something deliciously unique?  We have refrigerators, crockpots, and microwaves but no ovens.

Outdoor Girl:
You could try the wild rice salad I posted in this folder somewhere.  It can be dressed up to have a visual wow factor, too.

Although I'd hardly call deviled eggs, in particular, dull.  I LOVE them at potlucks because they aren't something I'd make.

Lil' Smokies wrapped in bacon and baked with brown sugar.

My neighbor made them for my sister's baby shower and they were amazing! They're so simple and they just flew out of the crockpot.

jpcher:
How about jambalya? That's something unique and not often seen at potlucks.

I really like this recipe: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/emeril-lagasse/cajun-jambalaya-recipe2/index.html


Question -- will there be a main dish provided and everybody else brings a side?

Ms_Cellany:
Asian-style asparagus:

Asparagus, cut into 1-2" lengths
Rice Vinegar
Tamari
Sesame oil
Toasted sesame seeds

(I don't measure when I cook this, but for 1 lb asparagus, use 1-2 tbsps of each)

Steam asparagus until tender but still toothsome (6-8 minutes). Blanch under cold running water. Marinate in remaining ingredients overnight. Serve cold or at room temperature.
