Large Group Dinner Menus with Recipes, Game Plans & everything you need to Wow a Crowd

People expect a lot from dinner and these menus and recipes really deliver.  In many cases a great dinner can make or break the event.  These are all proven winners.  They’re delicious and they are designed to be a stress-free experience for you and your team!

Many of the recipes can be made several days before and simply heated up prior to serving.

I’ve made these dinners for the church Youth Conference for 230 teens and leaders, Girl’s Camp, church Seminary class, Graduation Party Breakfasts and neighborhood supper clubs.   All the recipes were specifically chosen, not only because they play great together, but because the timing works well.  They are designed to be very easy meals to prepare and serve. Most recipes can be assigned out to volunteers to make in advance, these are marked with a * below.  Most of the additional items only require a simple prep.  You can use the whole menu, or pick an choose.  Just click on the name of a menu below to link to a page with your game plan, recipes and everything you need for a dynamite dinner!

Hawaiian Slow Cooker Kalua Pork

Another great, super-easy make ahead recipe. 10 minutes work, overnight unattended low and slow cooking, and you’ve got mouthwateringly tender luau-style Kalua pork. Really easy. REALLY good!

Beach Baby Pudding Cups

These Beach Baby Coconut Pudding Cups are everything that's great about the islands! Kids LOVE ‘EM. You will too since they are so easy to make.

Hawaiian Pineapple Cheesecake Bars

Even people who don’t like pineapple or coconut take a bite and say “WOW!” Treat yourself to a mini trip to Hawaii with these luscious Hawaiian Pineapple Cheesecake Bars.

Hawaiian Wedding Cake

Looking for a quick and easy treat? This Hawaiian Wedding Cake comes together in a snap and tastes like a piña colada on your plate.

Huli Huli Chicken

This is without a doubt one of the Best. Chicken. Recipes. Ever. We fixed this for our luau last year. I figured out of the 140 guests there had to be some folks who didn't like roast pig. So we made 70 pieces of Huli Huli Chicken to supplement the roast pig. Turns out no one doesn't like roast pig. But NO ONE wanted to skip the chicken either.
