How Sweet It Is

What’s better than to wake up to sweet rolls.  Their ooey, gooey goodness gets everyone off on the right foot.  More importantly, they can be made in advance, frozen and reheated that morning.   The bacon can be made in advance in the oven and easily held. What more do you need?   I created this menu for a western-theme church Youth Conference dinner held at the Morrell Ranch in Gallatin Missouri.   There were approximately 230 teens and leaders in attendance.  This is another fantastic menu if you’re new to cooking for a crowd.  With the right equipment it’s a very easy meal to prepare and serve.  All recipes can be assigned out to volunteers to make in advance.  Go for it!

Your Game Plan

Simply assign a recipe or activity in each column to your volunteers and provide them a link to this page.  I generally get 4-5 volunteers for each recipe and have each volunteer make 1 or 2 batches.  Many hands make light work.  You’ll notice there’s nothing planned for the last hour before serving except setting out the ice.  There’s a reason for that.  Always work in advance.
