Mini quiches, scrolls, sandwiches, scones, slices, cake/muffins made in mini muffin tin.

Not that I have any amazing ideas, but I bought a brownie maker for $12 and have been finding that the easiest thing ever lately.
Whip up some mix, make the brownies and I don't have to turn on the oven to heat up the house- so easy.
So, that's my new "bring a plate" thing...

I did mini kebabs. Toothpicks with a grapes (or other fruit) and a marshmallow. My 3 yr old helped me do them and they were a hit. Good for kids not sure about the adults though

I'm planning on making biscuits/toasts with good quality feta smeared on them and a dollop of whole cranbery sauce (I think it is from ocean spray) with a little rocket on top (I will also add roasted walnuts but only because I KNOW no-one has a nut allergy where I am serving it).
They are yummy and the cranberry makes it quite christmast and they are quick and easy to put together.

At this time of year: shortbread. Therre's plenty of google recipies and it's pretty simple: I usually just cook it in a lamington tin (lined with baking paper) and cut into fingers when it's straight out of the oven - then you don't have to fuss with cutting shapes or patting it into a circle.
I also second mini quiches.

Bring a fruit platter. Watermelon, rockmelon, pineapple, grapes, cherries whatever wont discolour and spoil. I've found that there's always so much sweet/unhealthy party foods that lots of people do enjoy plain fruit. There's never leftover fruit to take home.

Thinking of branching out into honeydew ones for christmas day

My son always signs me up for cheese, kabana and jatz.

My two favourite options:
1. Skewers with watermelon, strawberries and pink marshmallows 2. Stir bought mini tart shells filled with melted chocolate mixed in equal parts with thickened cream and topped with a raspberry
Both super quick and easy - and everyone loves them.

How much do you cook?
I did pizza scrolls for ballet break-up Friday night. I rolled out pizza dough to 40cmX20cm. Topped with filling ( I used cheese, tomato pizza sauce, capsicum and mushroom). Roll to a long sausage and slice into 2cm rounds. Place on baking sheet lined with baking paper and squish each scroll a bit with the heel of your palm. Top with extra cheese and bake in a hot oven.
Failing that, tzatziki and rice crackers, carrot sticks and celery is always good.
