1. easy things that taste good/savory maybe and i can make the night before.

  1. There was a thread not long ago about serving waffles at a large-ish party. POint was: how are you going to make that many waffles at once?

      Borrow several waffle irons and blow your fuses!

        My mom used to just keep them in a warm oven.

          Others must make waffles more efficiently than I. It takes me about 5 min. per waffle, so for a party for 20, figure 2 waffles per guest, it would take me over 3 hours of waffling. True, mulitple irons would reduce that time, but I'm still too lazy!

      2. I can point you to the Cooking forum at GardenWeb for tons of suggestions. You'll need to register and pay to post on that board but there are TONS of recipes/suggestions/etc.

        Read the other boards for great information....very informative place!

        1. Perhaps a frittata?

            What about a quiche or two? Maybe salmon with dill, maybe vegetable? Or a terrine?

                Quiche is an excellent idea. You can assemble all the ingredients the night before and pop them in the oven an hour before the brunch. Corn, carmalized onion and bacon is nice. Spinach and feta, etc. Lots of ways to go with quiche.
