What makes each of these dishes low-key? While many of them have manageable ingredient lists and very familiar methods (simple salads, throw-together muffins), the real answer is that you can do so many of them ahead of time. All of these salads can be done the day before, so they’re not on your mind the morning before guests arrive. You can easily mix up the muffin and waffle batters the night before, and bake and refrigerate the quiche and frittata ahead of time. I would leave the sliders to take care of the day of the party as they’ll really taste best this way.
