* Beef Barley Soup comes very close to simulating a "real" one-pot Viking meal.
* Split pea soup with ham or smoked sausage.
* Oatmeal or wheat/barley hot cereal with honey is also period, but people consider that breakfast fare today.
* A cheese plate with flatbread would be appropriate, especially if you include a decent goat cheese.
* A skyr smoothie with honey and berries added might appeal to the public. Skyr is commercially available at Whole Foods Market in the USA.
* A fruit plate with period fruits such as apple slices, strawberries.
* mussels or long-necked clams (steamers), boiled in the shell.
* Bouillabaisse type stew could prove a viable option. Fried seafood is out, since deep-frying wasn't invented yet.
* Roasted meat served in a pita pocket wouldn't be TOO weird either. Most bread was FLAT back then.
* Swedish-style pancakes with a lingonberry jam would be a nice dessert.
Keep in mind that turkeys, potatoes, and tomatoes are all New World foods unavailable to the Vikings. Kind of ties your hands a bit if you're shooting for authenticity.
