    Default "Bring A Plate" ideas :)

    I need to make a dish for a Christmas Eve party and I'm just stuck for ideas.
    I just checked and some of the stuff being made by others will be:

    *Fried rice
    *Lasagne
    *Potato bake
    *Chicken curry with vegies



    The host has just asked for something easy to reheat in her oven and that'll be the spread (her hubby, my uncle, usually does a big BBQ but she wants him to be able to relax and mingle this year so it's bring-a-plate style.)

    I was going to bring chicken drummets with honey soy marinade but that's too easy, I love cooking and don't mind putting in the effort but can't think of anything that I can easily make in bulk for the many guests.

    Any ideas? Links to recipes etc? THANKS
    (no salmon or very "fishy" stuff please, yuck..)
