I'm making cheese blintzes for a small lunch party. Any suggestions as to what to serve with it? I soup appropriate? How about fruit salad for dessert? Any suggestions about interesting toppings for the blintzes? thanks.
I sometimes blend high quality fruit preserves with sour cream as a topping for blintzes using a ratio that's greater on the preserves side than the sour cream side. Caramel sauce works with some cheeses also.
A fruit compote and a quality medium bodied red or white wine.
I wouldn't serve soup, except perhaps for a gazpacho or vichyssoise, with cheese blintzes. Depends on the variety of cheese and the topping. Neither gazpacho nor vichyssoise would pair well with fruit based toppings and fruit compote.
I haven't heard much about cheese blintzes, but they do sound yummy.
What about a 3 mushroom soup or tomato? I think fruit salad sound perfect.
A nice topping for your cheese blitzes could be a pesto based drizzle, or perhaps a zucchini and tomato saute with basil?
Would you tell me are you baking the blintzes? I'd love your recipe.
You could serve some smoked fish and dark breads. I have served a ratatouille or other mixed vegetable casseroles that one could add some white beans for more substance. If you don't serve a mixed vegetable casserole, you could serve a hot or cold vegetable soup. A fruit salad sounds great for dessert. You could also serve some simple vegetable salads like cucumber or shredded carrot salads.
Cherry or Blueberry sauce for me, please.
I'm not sure- I love the fruity topped kind!
