My daughter is turning 2 in two weeks. I have no clue what to make food wise. There is only going to be 10-14 ppl at the party (depending who comes). I just want something simple and wont be hard to clean up afterwards. Any suggestions?

Hot dogs and chips, snack trays from deli, mini sandwiches, fruit and veggie with dips, or burgers.

My kids like ham and cheese quiche, so I make minis in my muffin tin. The only clean up is the bowels and pan, they are hand held and neat, I never have any left. I usually buy prediced ham so it is easier. The only measuring that matters is the topping you can also change up the filling indregents to your liking. We also like Chicken, spinach andbacon quiche.

 Preheat oven to 350

 Topping

 3/4 mayo

 3/4 milk

 2 eggs

  Mix and set aside to pour over filling

 

 

  Filling

 2 cups shredded cheese ( monetary and Colby are the best )

 ham

 

 pie dough I usually use the pillsbury in a box that rolls out

  cut them a little larger then your muffin tins cause they shrink

bake them in tins for about 5-7 minutes till they bottoms are a little stiff

then add filling, and pour topping on top.

 Bake till tops are golden brown

i agree with veggie trays also some chips and dip. simple ham or chicken salad sandwhiches or meatballs? cheeze-its or goldfish for the kids to snack on? simple appetizers. if you don't want to cook have the store make up some platters for you.

Jello Jigglers are easy and cute for kids

I'd do a sandwich tray (buns cut in half, lunch meats, cheeses, spreads and let everyone build their own)

Veggies and Dip

Chips and Dip

Fruit Salad
