Brunch for people with food-issues (wheat allergy)

lulubelle | Sep 27, 2008 01:08 AM

I'm having a brunch next weekend for about 12 people. Usually I would make muffins, fruit salad, roasted potatoes and some sort of interesting egg casserole thing, however I just realized that two of my guests are veg, and one has a wheat allergy. What to do?

I can obviously make the egg casserole veg, or make two different ones, but the wheat allergy has me stumped, as every brunch dish I know is some variation on strada or bread pudding. I could make a separate plate of scrambled eggs for her, I guess, but she hates people going to a fuss over her, and I hate to leave her with nothing but potatoes and fruit to eat. To compound matters, I live in a place where buying alternative flours is not an option, so I can't make muffins with spelt or anything like that.

Any ideas?
