My wife and I throw a holiday party every year. We usually have between 50-60 guests coming and going throughout the night. I make a main dish every year and it's always a hit. Most years I'll do a brisket or a pork loin that I serve with french rolls and mustard, etc. This year I want to do a little something different.
I am from New Orleans, but live in CT now, and would like to do something a little more representative of my hometown this year, in more of a casserole type dish. Something that I can leave under a hot plate, and will not scare guests (ie: not everyone eats oysters, etc). My aunt used to make this outrageous artichoke casserole, with the base of it being the stuffing for the artichokes.
Any thoughts or ideas are greatly appreciated!
