3 Easy Recipes for Fundraisers and Public Events


Whether you’re thinking about trying out for Top Chef or you can’t remember the last time you’ve made
something edible, feeding large groups of people is all about choosing the right recipes. So, you’ve got a
huge event coming up and you’ve been volunteered to make a dish, even though you’re the program
director with an online masters in public administration. You can make things work out for the best by
choosing a couple of recipes that you can make in batches with little to no effort. Follow these next
three recipes for meals that you can serve up as hors doeuvres or by the plate load.

 

1. Creamy Dreamy Deviled Eggs

 5 dozen eggs
 2 jars of mayonnaise
 ¼ cup paprika
 1/2 jar relish
 1/2 bottle mustard
Get a large pot and fill with water. When the water boils you will want to gingerly start placing the eggs
inside. After all five dozen eggs have boiled, you will need to remove the shells. Cut the eggs in half,
scoop out the yolks and put them in a large mixing bowl. Add the mayonnaise, mustard, and relish and
blend until creamy. Use a piping bag to place a dollop of the yolk mixture into each hard-boiled egg
white. Sprinkle lightly with paprika, arrange on a large platter and serve.

2. Savory Mini Pizzas

 6 bags of pita bread
 2 jars of spaghetti sauce
 1 bunch of fresh basil
 ½ cup olive oil
 3 cups grated mozzarella cheese
Put the pita bread on a cookie sheet, spoon on a generous helping of spaghetti sauce, sprinkle with
some mozzarella cheese, top with a few fresh pieces of basil, and drizzle with olive oil. Bake in the oven
for 10 minutes at 400-degrees.Repeat this process with each piece of pizza bread until you have enough
mini pizzas to feed a small army.

3. Mom’s Cheddar Potato Soup

 4 cups grated cheddar cheese
 1 bottle beer
 6 strips of bacon
 ½ cup sliced scallions
 1 ½ cups chopped and peeled potatoes
Put the cheddar cheese, beer, and potatoes into a crockpot and cook on low for approximately three
hours, or until the potatoes become tender. Fry up the bacon and break up into crumbles. Pour a ladle
of soup into a bowl and top with bacon and scallions. Use disposable bowls and plastic spoons if you are
planning to feed more than five or six people. This recipe is great for students in an online MPA program
who want to cook up a hot meal while they’re studying.
The meals listed above are easy to follow and you can cook large helpings of them in a single afternoon.
Mini pizzas are great finger foods that are loved by both kids and adults, while hot soup helps to keep
people warm, especially when they’re spending time outside. The visitors at your next public event will
come back again and again for more deviled eggs once they get a taste. All these recipes will make you
the star of the show and you can create food that people will love to eat even if you aren’t a master
chef.
