'AMERICAN' recipes

I'm going to a theme party (around the world) and must bring a drink and appetizer from a specific country. I chose USA (I'm Canadian).
I can easily bring American beer or wine, but what to bring for food? Any suggestions?

    1. BBQ: Pulled pork, hamburger buns, and coleslaw. Tyler Florence's pulled pork recipe is awesome, and you can cook it in your oven:

      A creamy cole slaw is the standard, but I love them with the balsamic vinegar based cole slaw in How To Cook Everything.

      1. When I studied abroad, we had a tour de chambre...and I made rice krispy treats and jello shots.

        They were a big hit. What's not to love about 'em?

        1. Pigs In a Blanket if you can heat something up. Or maybe just spinach dip with vegetables. Nothing fancy, but always popular.

          1. Miniature crab cakes and sweet tea.
