Ed, I wouldn't think of those as holding up for 2 hours out.

Some of the things I've started working on are self serve aps....top your own bruschetta where the ingredients are room temp veg/herbs.

Much like a Cheese table.......

The filet and squash pancakes are kept hot, be honest with you when you put them out they dont stay 2 hours, they are constantly replaced except maybe for last 1/2 hour
I like your make your own bruchetta its like a taco bar setup.

not really, this is crostinis that have been baked.....white beans with rosemary, zest, garlic, evo; caponata; pesto;roasted tomatoes......each component is viable and actually better at room temp.

Most taco bars would need a heat source and would not work at room temp for any length of time.

Stationary aps: Roasted Veg Platter, or Marinated Vegetables
Cheese Table with dried fruits, nuts etc

I've been going the skewer route lately. They're quick to put together, easily transported, and make nice full display for very little product. You can be creative with ingredients, marinated mozzarella and tomatoes, falafel balls with grilled onions and eggplant, basic fruit, cold cocktail shrimp with different marinades, etc. I like the look of a couple of skewered apps propped up in bowls along with other app trays on the table. It makes for great height and interest.

 

I love the savory cheesecake idea. Everybody loves cream cheese, and it would be so time effective. Much less expensive than a typical cheese tray. The Bruchetta bar is awesome too. That would make a great dinner party app.
