Meals ideas for large groups?

I am looking for ideas of meals that are easy to serve to a large group of people (potluck style) and that will also hold up for a couple of hours at room temp (or in a crock-pot). Any suggestions?

Brown and Wild Rice Mandarin Orange Salad.

vegan, gluten free, and keeps very well...serve at room temp, and is better if made the night before serving. Just be sure to cover it well so the rice doesn't dry out. Save a bit of dressing to moisten it up in the morning.

I would definitely not have meat or fish at room temperature for a couple of hours. A kale salad would be good

Another favorite option is http://www.food52.com/recipes... and Hillarybee's http://www.food52.com/recipes...

Both these dishes would compliment Sam's recommendation.

Oh yes SKK!! A quiche can be quickly made and stored and served at room temp and sliced into small portions for crowd for potluck. A very nice idea there.

I always like the ease of a large cut of meat like pork butt (hey, I'm southern--when is barbecue not a good idea for a party?). Of course, you have to cook it a long time, but there's really not that much fuss involved, and with a couple simple sides like a big salad or slaw, you're good to go. Leftovers also happen to be fabulous.
