What is your favorite low-cost dish to cook for 10 - 15 guests?
I host game nights pretty often. It can get expensive to provide food. What are your favorite low cost dishes to make for large crowds?
My lasanga feeds around 20 but costs about 50 to make plus the time. My wife buys a couple roasted chickens and makes an awesome chicken salad with it
Chili, Made mild not hot. It warms & fills the belly and the air shortly thereafter.
We love to entertain but just a few ideas are
1 Savory Beef Brisket ($2 per lb) 12 lb brisket or $24
2 Barbecue Chicken (99cent per lb) 3 whole fryers $14
3 Chili with fritos for frito pie (ground chili or chuck meat $3 per lb) 4lbs meat $12
4 Taco Soup or Chicken tortilla soup (3 lbs ground beef or chicken pieces) $9
5 pan seared pork loin ( $4 lb x 7 lbs) $28 Check out food network for (raspberry chipotle pork loin) this is out of this world and will wow your guests.
Two packets of spaghetti and a large pack of meatballs or ground beef goes a really long way but costs very little. Add a few green peppers, onions and at tin or two or spaghetti sauce and you have a great meal to feed even 25!
A large dish of baked ziti is great for this! Lots of yummy cheeses, tomato sauce and whole wheat pasta--delicious
Vegan chili and vegan cornbread or cornbread stuffing. It's always a hit, especially when served with pie for dessert.
Chilli and cheese with gaucamole! Everyone loves a good bowl of chilli it's cheap too. It could even be served as a party dip! That is one of my favorite foods for when I host parties.
I love a huge paella, . It always impresses, and tastes very indulgent.
