Thanksgiving potluck hosts typically assume the responsibility of cooking the turkey (or whatever your potluck’s main dish may be). Do as much as possible the day before.

It’s not like we’re reinventing the wheel by suggesting a microwave menu. People who live in dorms lack microwaves.

So, if you’re rolling without an oven this Thanksgiving, don’t feel obliged to overpay for a catered meal. Instead, check out the following microwave-friendly recipes we rounded up.

APPETIZER: DEVILED EGGS

If you already have boiled eggs in the fridge, you won’t even need your microwave for this super-simple, yet forever popular, app. Although there are many iterations of deviled eggs you can make (Sriracha, anyone?), the most classic version just requires a hard-cooked yolk, mayo, mustard and relish.

Why Using Your Microwave’s Popcorn Button Is a Bad Idea

  Why Using Your Microwave’s Popcorn Button Is a Bad Idea Pressing the "popcorn" button couldn't be easier, but it almost definitely won't yield the best popcorn.

You’d take a shot of Jameson and make this microwave jambalaya from Jam and Clotted Cream instead. And you’d be brilliant for doing so, because chorizo.
