Hors d'oeuvres

A Christmas party hostess has asked each one to bring a "heavy" hors d'oeuvre. I need suggestions for something that can be transported across town and does not need to be heated in her oven.
I've been through several sites and nothing strikes me.

  1. Walnut and Blue Cheese grapes are good. Use a combination of green and purple grapes. Make ahead and chill before serving. If you don't like walnuts use pecans.

        1. Do you have a crockpot, and would you feel comfortable driving across town with it full of something? If so, I'd go with Swedish meatballs or some other meatball in sauce - always a hit, and definitely "heavy." If not, maybe a filled puff pastry of some type, that can be served room temp? Spanakopita?
