Lap Meal: No Knives, No Trays. No Problems..Take 1

One of my daughters asked if I could solicit and compile recipes from all of you out there who read my blog.  The criterion for the recipes that she needs is a common one: food that can be eaten off of a plate off of a lap. She’s hosting a book club dinner and wants no knives, no trays, and no problems. We’ve all hosted these events…baby showers, Super Bowl parties, and salons.

We can do better than this!

I look forward to your suggestions!

Here are some of my ideas…

  • coconut shrimp with the tails on (serving as handles)
  • chicken, beef, or pork satays on a wooden skewer (My sister has a great recipe.  Let me know if you want it.)
  • quiches baked in muffin tins or ramekins
  • potatoes au gratin baked in muffin tins or ramekins
  • shrimp or chicken creamy fillings in puff pastry cups
  • curry chicken salad on mini-crescent rolls
  • pulled pork on small bakery buns
  • sliders on small bakery buns
  • gumbo or jambalaya

I’ll keep thinking!
