General Conference Food and Pot Luck Ideas

A couple of people have asked me about food ideas, so I thought I would just do a post about it. Here are some suggestions:
Farmers Casserole
For breakfast we like this dish. You can make it the night before and keep it in the fridge then just throw it in the oven in the morning. Really good with salsa or Pico de Gallo on the side.
Holiday Morning Buns
These are yummy cinnamony flaky biscuits and are so good, you can make them up to a week before, and just cook the morning of.

34 Breakfast Casserole Recipes
Here are 34 Breakfast Casserole recipes which for work great for General Conference weekend:)


I love pot luck because it isn't too much work for one person and everyone is always happy because they get what they want:). These are ones we've tried and tested that have worked out great, and are easy divide up for assignments to the guests.

Baked Potato Bar
Baked potatoes, others can bring toppings like, sour cream, bacon, chives, cheese, chili, broccoli, chicken alfredo, or whatever else takes your fancy, then everyone can make up their own.

Pizza Bar
Pizza bases (we usually get or make 8" ones, so they can be personal pizzas), pizza sauce, shredded mozzarella, pepperoni, ham, chicken, mushrooms, onions, olives, peppers and anything else (my favorite topping is tuna and sweetcorn - seriously good, honest!).

Pasta Bar
Have a couple of pastas like spaghetti or penne, a marinara and alfredo sauce, chicken, hamburger, beef, and various veggies.

Taco Bar
Taco meats, taco shells, tortilla's shredded cheese, shredded lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, guacamole etc.

Soup & Salad Bar
A few varieties of soups and salads, bread rolls/sticks - just channel your inner Olive Garden:).
In October we did a street BBQ in our little Circle after the afternoon session and all our neighbors came. It was a bring bring your own meat and a side affair and was great. A good way to review what you liked/learnt and just to be in good company.

Dessert/Ice Cream Bar
Self explanatory really, just another excuse to have people over really:).

  • Go for a picnic at a park or in the back garden in between sessions.
  • Give everyone a little notebook or sticky notes to write notes in on the talks, then review then at dinner/lunch.
