    I've got a pretty severely impaired group of ASD students, and I'm looking for simple recipes to prepare with them. So far, we've done jello, grilled cheese, pancakes, french toast, cookies, and waffles. Here are my restrictions:

    1) They pretty much only eat finger foods
    2) I'm still waiting on maintenance to hook up my stove/oven. I've got a hot plate, toaster oven, and griddle.
    3) I've been asked to avoid sweets as much as possible. The cookies were an Xmas treat, but I'd rather not do too many more desserts.
    4) I'd like to have a quick turn-around--I'm not sure we have the patience to wait for the crock pot to finish cooking.

    Thanks for your help!

    Do you have a toaster to make toast?

    As mentioned, I have a toaster oven. We could do toast.

    We have a winner! We're doing this one tomorrow. We only cook about 1/week, so I've got a month or two of good ideas here.

    Baked tortilla chips using corn tortillas are easy and yummy! Takes about 12 - 16 minutes in the oven.
