Christmas Brunch in Lieu of Dinner
- Wtg2Retire Dec 6, 2010 02:11 PM
I have decided to have a Christmas Brunch rather than a dinner. This is against long standing tradition, but I am going to do it. Following is my menu so far; I am wondering if any of you have comments or recommendations other than that shown. Any comments are welcome.
Baked Eggs in Tortilla Cups
Swiss Fried Potatoes
Chopped Onions and Tomatoes with Capers
Yummy Overnight Rolls (like sticky buns or monkey bread)
Green Grapes, Bluberries, Strawberries and Sliced Honeycrisp Apples and Kiwis Platter
Since it is Christmas and you are bucking years of tradition, you want the meal to be a huge success, with plenty of choices. I like what you have chosen to serve but I would offer a broader selection, more of a Smorgasbord. I love the idea of a platter of sausages or smoked salmon and bagels, or some other bread as an alternative to your sweet pastry. Maybe serve a sweet, creamy cheese to go with your fresh fruit, like goat Brie or Humboldt Fog or a bowl of Greek yogurt. Another great brunch dish, that is made the night before and popped into the oven, is baked French toast. It can be eaten warm or at room temp and it is always a crowd pleaser. Good luck!
Umm, yumm. I love the idea of a platters of sausages, as well as the cheese or yogurt to go with the fruit. Also think I will have homemade biscuits and perhaps English Muffins.
Initially, I was going to include baked French toast, but decided that would make too many sweets at the table, so decided to scratch it.
Thanks for the ideas.
