Pick a category of food you're going to provide and make the rest a potluck.

We had good success offering protein and dessert and having guests bring salad that represented their background. At the best one we made wings, baked/stuffed fish, and meatballs for the proteins and homemade apple crepes for dessert. We had about 40 people bringing salads and there were no duplicates. Duplicates of types but not the same recipes. There were fruit salads, green salads, potato salads, veggie salads of all sorts. It was fantastic. There were a couple of people who said they just couldn't handle bringing a salad so they brought carbs (various breads) and soft drinks. Best party evah.

@dorotalysik,
Celery and dips, smoked salmon and anything, pinwheels and sausage rolls, bacon with bacon and bacon, two tonne of oysters and prawns: tell them to bring all this plus booze as their housewarming prezzie to you.

Or go for the double PB with pancetta basil peach balsamic.

@Sturgis,
too much double dipping possible. Make sure everything is ONE BITE ONLY food. Make sure dips are apportioned in personal dippy dishes.
NO hrimp cocktail where all their little tails hng out the bowl and the dippy sauce in the center. SHrimp are a health hazard unless served as individual plates .

So, just make sure theres an equal amount of plates and dishes for as long as you can figure youre going to have to put up with these people.

@dorotalysik,
I don't understand why no one has mentioned spam and spam related finger foods.

@dorotalysik,
The best snacks are contingent upon cultural proclivity.

Several medium-sized fruit, cheese, and cracker trays, so they aren’t all mulling impatiently around one tray.
A couple of bread and jam trays.
A meat - bread - spread tray.

@tsarstepan,
Combos? Yipes!

...or is that Yikes!?


I confess to having eaten a few packages of them decades ago. They were the driest of dry.

Why would anybody even think on making them on their own?
(easier and time-saving to knock over a snack machine ...although possible subsequent prison time, might make a person rethink it)

@Sturgis,
That's the whole deal with this part of Bon Apetit's YouTube channel. They make gourmet versions of junk food (that will likely never be reproduced by common cooks/civilians).

Still wickedly fun to watch.

The only time I eat something like that is if I'm on an hours long, light over 8, road trip.
I dunno, just seems ok at that time.
Actually, the thing I always get is a big bag of doritos, the kind with the orange powder on it, and a couple bottles of Coke Zero.

That doesnt work. and our cat eschews doritos.

Cleary a wise cat. Critters of the feline families only eat Cheetos, just ask Chester Cheetah
