@ASC3: What about corn bread or grits. Or for another protein you could do a gourmet meatloaf or good ol’ shrimp and grits.

Collards are always good as are Brussels sprouts with bacon and onion.

I’m making myself hungry.

Mac and cheese is always my favorite comfort food. You can ‘dress’ it up with nice cheeses or added ingredients like veggies (peas, mushrooms, tomatoes) or meats (bacon & ham are always good).

My favorite meat comfort food is a good meatloaf.

Cheese grits! I’ve actually had this done as a kind of classy baked thing, with nice sharp cheese baked on the top. Maybe something warm to drink, hot apple cider or something like that? For some reason I’m having trouble thinking of good warm Southern comfort food, maybe it’s because we don’t have so much winter down here. Huh. What you’ve got going sounds great!

Mac and cheese.  Cheesy Grits.  Ok, I love me some meatloaf and mashed potatoes w/ country gravy.  Oh, you have to have twice baked chicken and biscuits:)

Candied sweet potatoes, perhaps? Corn pudding? Pork or beef roast?

Mac and cheese, definitely. Maybe stuffing/dressing (you don’t have to bake it in a bird if you’re doing pot pie). I know you don’t want everything fried, but I love fried okra. (Maybe add a vegetarian pot pie, if your guests might appreciate that. I make mine with white beans in it and my dad liked it better than the meat kinds.)

Oh, and dumplings. mmmm.
