Hi everyone... kinda new to the site, finding my way around. This is only my second "real" post so please be kind!
I know I tend to ramble on and on, so let me try to ask this question with only the bare minimum of necessary background explanation. Hey, that's tough for me!
I'm searching for a couple of good bread recipes that are meant to be served at room temperature, or at least that don't suffer horribly from not being hot out of the oven. I'm making these for parking lot tailgating parties and there won't be any way to heat up whatever is prepared -- I don't attend the tailgates myself, I only make the food that is brought.
The LAX season only started a few weeks ago and so far I've been baking desserts for the tailgates. I'm starting to do some part-time catering work (mostly cakes) and I need to spread word of mouth.
The problem is that the Lenten season just began and the tailgaters in question are supporting a sports team from a Catholic university so there is a very high proportion of people who won't eat sweets and desserts during Lent. I figured I would switch to non-dessert baked goods instead, but most of my go-to bread recipes are best hot out of the oven. I'm just not sure what to make that can be prepared for a large number of people, is transportable without professional equipment, and doesn't need to be fresh and hot to still look and taste great.
Any suggestions? I'm really looking for ideas; I can locate or create the actual recipes on my own, but I don't know what to make!
