The Betty Crocker site has a whole section of ideas!
Quoting KaylaMillar:7 layer dip, chocolate chip cheese ball, jalepeno popper, pigs in a blanket, sliders
Oh hmm BBQ Pulled pork sandwiches..... a taco dip.. or some meatballs in grape jelly and chili sauce.... yummy
Veggie pizza is another good idea:O)
I usually make beef barbecue or chili for things like this. Make a vegetable tray, cheese and ring bolognie tray, buffalo chicken dip with chips. I make a macaroni or potato salad for a nice side dish.
Looks like you already have alot of great suggestions. This is always a hit at my house when we have a get together.

Meatballs are always a big hit.
How about getting little pitas and having everyone make their own little pizza?
Make ahead some spicy meatloaf, roll into individual little hot dogs, put them on a cookie sheet in the freezer to get them to set up, then wrap individually in seran wrap and put in a freezer bag. You only have to take out what you plan on using. Either grill them or pop in the oven and have some spicy/sweet sauce to go on them....serve on a hot dog bun, of course! Always a hit with us to take camping!
1 cup mayo
1 cup sour cream
