I considered it, did one a few years ago for mothers day. It was a lot of work.

A frittata is a bit easier and can be sliced up. Plus it doesn't hurt to sit a bit (they're good warm or room temperature).

I'd put a kid to work! But frittata is fantastic!

Oh, you don't want to see what my kid does to eggs. No

Quiche. You can make it ahead of time.

RE: Mother's Day Brunch
Finger food is good?

I love preparing finger food but I always take too much time with it, the things I like are quite time consuming to make. But I get compliments every time Big Grin

So, if you have time, these are the things I've tried and are really worth it:

-Stuffed cherry tomatoes (bacon, green onion and mayonnaise or cream cheese, garlic and basil)

-Cucumber cups with tuna salad

-Puff pastry filled with anything you want

There are so many things I can think of but I don't know if they would fit the occasion. Many are also best served warm, so I don't know how that would go with your schedule. Mozarella sticks, pizza rolls, roasted vegetable skewers (best with balsamic sauce), or the awesome bruschetta with tomato sauce, bacon and cream cheese.

The booze I've got covered (of course) mimosa, bloody Mary, slo gin fizzes...

Dessert will either be a layer pineapple upside down cake or my apple spice cake with bacon maple frosting. Both are my own creations. Big Grin

I'm thinking small plates of food. Maybe a frittata? Something like that...I need more ideas tho.

Any thoughts?

Mini quiche(s) in those tiny muffin pans work very well with big groups. Easy, fast to make and reheats well just before serving.

I could do mini quiche and put them on a tree platter thing I have. They'd look adorable.

Oh that's awesome (I can't eat them) but salmon is catnip up here so it goes on the list. Might swap these for the crab dip.

You reminded me of so many things. Bruschetta with some heirloom tomato and basil. Puff pastery....holy crap you've opened a new door. Stuffed mushrooms too....

Thanks for all your help everyone!
