Square Deviled Eggs

Deviled eggs are always a hit, but they can be a bit fussy to assemble. And what if you don’t have one of those special plates or carriers? This recipe cuts down on assembly time and makes for easy transportation. You’ll bake the egg whites right on a sheet pan (no peeling!) and then pipe the seasoned yolks in rows (no awkward balancing act!). And you can bring the sheet pan, as is, to the party with you.  

Sweet and Savory Mini Meatballs

What’s better than a meatball? A mini meatball that people can eat with a toothpick! This dish calls for just three ingredients: frozen bite-sized meatballs, green onions, and Korean barbecue sauce. If need be, ask your host if you can pop them in the oven to get them hot again before serving.  

Mac and Cheese with Cheddar Cracker Crumbs

This mac and cheese incorporates spinach for some color and a crushed cracker topping for crunch. The whole thing requires just 15 minutes of prep work, so the hardest thing you’ll have to do is remember to bring your casserole dish home at the end of the night.  

Take 5 Beef ’n Bean Chili

A five-ingredient chili recipe? Yes, please. Make it in a slow cooker and not only will you end up with even more flavor, you’ll have a dish that’s ready to be transported. Just plug it in and turn on the Keep Warm function when you arrive.  

Lightened Up Buffalo Chicken Dip

Buffalo wings hold a special place in the appetizer hall of fame. This irresistible dip captures all the flavor with a fraction of the fat and calories. Serve it with crunchy carrot and celery sticks for an extra dose of nutrients and fiber that guests will happily devour. 

Light Spinach Dip

A good spinach dip tends to be welcome at any party. (Could you imagine being even half as popular!?) And this lightened-up version is sure to be a hit. Just don’t forget to grab a vegetable tray from the produce section.

Pasta Salad Skewers

Food on a stick, for the win! These Pasta Salad Skewers are easy for people to eat while they mingle. And they’re loaded with cheese, meat, veggies, and flavor.  

Crab Rangoon Dip

Fact: Even if you can’t reheat this dip once you get to the party, it will still be delicious. It’s got all the elements of the classic—cream cheese, crab, crunchy wontons—in a deconstructed party app that’s worthy of a celebration.  

Cowboy Casserole

You can never go wrong with tater tots! This casserole has ground beef, corn, black beans, and lots of cheese. Oh, and tater tots, of course. 

Mini Chicken Pot Pies

Another rotisserie chicken hack! With two other shortcuts—frozen veggies and frozen puff pastry—these mini pies can be assembled quickly. Just double the recipe if you want to feed a few dozen people. 

Pull-Apart Cheesesteak Sliders

Philly’s favorite sandwich goes palm-sized with these pull-apart sliders that are easy to make in big batches on a sheet tray. The combo of seasoned ground beef and caramelized onion is a no-brainer – the question is: are you Team Provolone or Team American Cheese?  

Rocky Road Cookie Bars

Impress everyone with your baking skills! No one has to know that these bars only have five ingredients and start with a log of chocolate chip cookie dough.  

Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Seasonal, portable, totally devour-able – these pumpkin pie-inspired cupcakes check all the boxes. For mess-free transporting, pack the cream cheese frosting in a separate container and top cupcakes just before serving.
