We have your viewing party covered, from entrées to mains to desserts and drinks. You can thank us when you’re lying on the floor moaning after making your way through the Skip’s Scramble.




1 packet of mayonnaise

1 boiled egg

A delicious snack. Squirt mayonnaise into your mouth, follow with egg. It’s as Ann as the nose on Plain’s face.

Arrested Development Fried Cheese With Club Sauce Menu

Mix all sauce ingredients in food processor until smooth. Coat cheese slices in flour, egg and breadcrumbs, adding salt to taste, and then cook in oil.

Skip’s Scramble:

1/2 dozen eggs

1 bacon & egg McMuffin

2 English muffins

2 hash browns

2 hotcakes with butter and syrup

1 sausage & egg McMuffin

1 sausage McMuffin

Arrested Development Skip's Scramble

The original Skip’s Scramble contains every item on the menu at Skip Church’s Bistro, tossed in a large pan and cooked with eggs. Frankly, cooking all that breakfast food is a lot of work, so instead we’ve substituted every item on the McDonald’s Breakfast Menu. Bring ‘em in, boys!

Hot Ham Water:

450g premium canned ham

2l water

Boil water in saucepan, add canned ham. It’s so watery … and yet there’s a smack of ham to it!



4 cups chicken broth

1 ham bone with meat attached

1 potato

Throw the ham bone in a pot with some broth and the potato. If you don’t have those things handy, some raw veggies, bacon and a Cup-A-Soup will also do the job.

Arrested Devepment Stew

Baby, you’ve got a stew goin’.

A Banger In The Mouth:

6 large potatoes, washed, peeled and diced

40g butter

125ml milk

4 sausages

Cover potatoes and bring to the boil over high heat, then uncover and cook for 15 minutes. Drain potatoes, then return to pan, and mash through butter and milk. Serve with sausages.

 Arrested Development Banger In The Mouth

Who’d like a banger in the mouth?




A Bluth Frozen Banana:

8 bananas

8 popsicle sticks

400g dark chocolate

400g milk chocolate

Crushed peanuts to serve

Insert popsicle sticks into peeled bananas and freeze overnight. Melt chocolate in double boiler, and smear on each banana with the flat of a knife. Sprinkle peanuts all over then leave for a minute to set.

For the ultimate indulgence, try the GOB – a frozen banana with double the chocolate and nuts, and two sticks.

Cloudmir Vodka:

Arrested Development Vodka 

If Cloudmir isn’t available, any brand will do. Just remember that you have to drink it once it’s open or it goes bad.

Juice Boxes:

You can have any flavour you like. Hell, just stick a straw in a box of wine if that’s how you like to party. Just have a hit of one, brother.


30ml tequila

30ml Cointreau

30ml lime juice

Arrested Development Margarita Me Or These

Pour ingredients into your mouth, then drink. SPRING BREAK! WOO!


This is probably the most important one. You can’t have a party without ice.
