11 "Arrested Development" Party Food Ideas

5. Ann's (Her?) Mayoneggs:

Step 1: Squirt mayonnaise into your mouth.

Step 2: Eat a hard-boiled egg.

I don't feel so good.

Or maybe, just MAEBY, you can try these deviled eggs instead:

They have mayonnaise in them, too, but Ann would likely never eat a deviled egg solely out of principle. So I guess mayoneggs are here to stay.

7. Carl Weathers' Stew:

Step 1: Throw bone in pot (trust Carl, there's still plenty of meat on that bone.)

Step 2: Add broth.

Step 3: Add a potato.

It's like everyone on Arrested Development has cooking down to 3-step-or-less science.

Or try this ultra deluxe version of Carl Weathers' Stew:

Loaded with chicken, sweet potatoes, coconut milk, and curry.

Make it. Eat it. You could be just two adults, gettin' a stew on, man.

Or, try these decidedly less complicated, less controversial Banana Bars by Betty Crocker:

They may not be a Bluth family recipe, but hey, at least you don't have to eat them in jail, am I right?

10. Orange County Prison Ice Cream Sandwiches:

They may be an inmate favorite at the Orange County Prison vending machine, but you can have your own little love affair right in the comfort of your own home...

Save yourself a trip on the Segway and make these yourself at home:

MMM. Almost good enough to make me forget I'm in love with my cousin*.

*Not actually in love with own cousin. I feel I must specify that.

But before we go, here are some recipes we shouldn't recommend:

And that's why you always leave a note:
