Home Chef Gays - what should I make for my work potluck?

Got a work potluck coming up. It's my first year at the company, so it's time to make my mark! I want to make some kind of side dish, appetizer OR boozy dessert. I'm a decent (not great, not bad) home chef, but I also tend to focus on meals for 1-2 at home rather than potluck'y side dishes. I'd love to do something a little unusual or, that has a fun twist on a classic without being too polarizing for a diverse group of colleagues.

Oh, and, yes, to confirm, this is a holiday work potluck. And the proteins (turkey, ham etc) are covered.

Is what's his name stealing recipes for a new cookbook again?

Fanny Cradock's "Angry Chinese Egg Men" would seem to fit the bill.

It’s a soupluck not a potluck.

Rotel Dip

Kraft fake cheese and cans of Rotel and then bring tortilla chips. People went nuts where I used to work

Bulgar tabbouleh with enormous amount of fresh parsley and lemon and high quality oil. Also add pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds and some golden raisins. You can usually find fresh parsley (and the bulgar) at a reasonable price at Turkish greengrocer if there is one in town. You can garnish it with canned or fresh (if you can find) stuffed grape leaves.

Paper products are always a big hit!

The tabbouleh sounds great. Or make a lot of the macaroni and cheese recipe from The Joy of Cooking. Everyone loves it.

Scalloped potatoes. They're pretty easy.

Are desserts covered? This was an actual recipe from Good Housekeeping from 1952.

[quote] OR boozy dessert.

Now, I couldn't get by with that at my office, but if you think you can, bourbon balls are always a hit. Sort of old-fashioned, and not very PC nowadays. I've never known them to go to waste. You have to make them several days in advance, for the best flavor.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
