Christmas Brunch

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I've decided that I'm making everyone Christmas bunch this year! Now I just need some help with the menu. I want to make it an impressive meal, but I also want to be able to handle making it myself. There will be 10 people. So far my thoughts have been quiche, bacon, sausage, croissants, fruit salad, sticky buns (a holiday staple in my family), and strawberry rhubarb puree cocktails.

Make that 11 people!

Sounds like a good menu to me. You can make the quiches small in a muffin pan, which ends up delicious - and you can do some degree of personalization here (ahem, yes I admit this was originally done on my behalf as I refuse to eat mushrooms lol). Chorizo or Bavarian sausage are good brunch choices for a bit of change from normal.
Sounds delicious to me!

The strawberry rhubarb puree cocktails-- is that a drink? Sounds interesting!

Yes it is! I have a few recipes for rhubarb cocktails. And since I still have about 10lbs of frozen rhubarb for summer I figured I'd use some up. I thought I'd do strawberry rhubarb though so that it's more red, and do a green garnish of some sort. Something different than mimosas! But hey, maybe we'll have those too.

Dates stuffed with cinnamon cream cheese! It looks fancy and expensive, but it's not, and it's delicious. It always impresses

PS: You said the magic word - mimosa - so I think you have to make that 12 now

There was a interesting drink recipe in the Bon Appetit mag I received today. I can't remember all ingredients but pomegranete juice, rum, grapefruit juice for sure-seems interesting.

Every Christmas eve I prep a breakfast casserole and cook on the 25th. Pork sausage, day old bread, cheddar cheese, eggs. Its easy and tasty!!

I believe a mimosa is orange juice & champagne.
Your brunch menu sounds delicious!
