I usually bring a cheese plate. You’d have to put the cheeses in a cooler to bring it, but it would be fine sitting out once there. Olives and nuts are also good.

Desserts are almost always room temp. I also brought cranberry sauce last year– I had it in a cooler for a 4 hour drive, but I think it would be fine out for 2 hours or more. And I agree that a cheese plate is great, just put the cheese in a cooler or insulated lunch box, even.

@Paiger8:  have you asked him what his grandparent’s might like or prefer you to bring?  When I host Thanksgiving, I think through EVERYTHING and extra dishes usually get pushed to the side and don’t really fit with the flow of the meal (or are duplicates of something I already prepared) and turn out to be a waste.  

Is the event a potluck?

If it’s not, what about a nice host/hostess gift instead?

Chex or party mix?

Somd kind of homemade spiced nuts? Put in a nice tin and then they can decide to serve (or as the PP suggested, if they have already had a menu planned) they will keep and make a nice hostess gift.

Bruschetta, chips and salsa, and spinach dip are all thing people seem to like to munch on and you don’t need to be too concerned about the temperature.

@Paiger8:  pumpkin cookies or even pumpkin bread sounds delish!

What about some muffins and some gourmet coffee/hot chocolate for the next morning- I bet everyone would enjoy not having to cook the day after.  Other options- chips and dip or a loaf of bread to make leftover sandwiches (one of my favorite things about Thanksgiving-yummy!).

I would put together a cheese, pepperoni/salami, and crackers platter.  You could also try putting together a variety of things.

  • Cheese
  • Pepperoni/salami
  • Crackers
  • Veggies
  • Veggie dip
  • Cherry peppers stuffed with prosciutto and provolone
  • Olives
  • Mozzerella balls

Pumpkin cake with cream cheese frosting, yum!  Or pumpkin chocolate chip cookies!
