Any ideas for a potluck dish taht kids like and does not need refrigeration?
Mary,pizza comes to mind.Will think more on it.
When I was in Costco today, one of the samples was a simple foccaccia bread round, topped with spinach dip, and then heated until the topping browned slightly, cut into pieces. For something so easy, it was delicious! I am so going to make that myself the next time I need a quick appetizer!
These recipes are also ones that I have made. They are certainly adaptable to your liking. In fact, I like making French Bread Margherita Pizza that gets raves, but you'd have to decide whether the kids in your group would like that or not.
French Bread Margherita Pizza
1 Loaf of French Bread, cut in half lengthwise
1/2 cup fresh basil chiffonade, lightly packed (chiffonade = cut into thin strips)
2 large roma tomatoes, sliced
16 oz. mozzarella cheese, sliced
salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
Preheat, the oven to 475 degrees F.
Lightly toast the bread for about 5 minutes. (I butter the bread and sprinkle with garlic for a "garlic bread" base.)
Top with the tomatoes, basil and cheese. Bake approx 12 minutes, Broil a minute or two, if desired, to brown the cheese.
For something kids would love:
tomato or pizza sauce
grated cheese (cheddar, mozzarella, etc.)
pepperoni, or other meat topping (optional)
Flatten biscuits (a glass bottom works well and makes a rim)
Spread sauce on biscuits; add toppings
Bake at 350 approximately 10 minutes.
French Bread PizzaServes/Makes: 6 1 loaf french bread3 cups Spaghetti Sauce1/4 cup Parmesan cheese1 cup mozzarella cheese -- grated3 ounces pepperoni slices Slice loaf of French bread in half
lengthwise. Layer sauce. Parmesan cheese, pepperoni and mozzarella
cheese on each half. Set oven to broil and/or 550 degrees F. Place bread
on baking sheet, and put in the oven. Broil until mozzarella is melted.
Cut into serving size pieces.
(You can bake at a lower oven temp, if you prefer, which works fine also)
Could you do a variety of quick breads?
I'll try to find some recipes for you.
