Help with an afternoon tea menu (including another quiche question)

ChristinaMason | Dec 2, 2009 01:37 AM

OK, so not technically high tea, but I'm having around 7 friends over for coffee and cake on Friday. I'd like to serve one or two savory things for balance (I'm incapable of eating anything sweet without craving salty, and vice versa). One person attending is lacto-ovo vegeterian, and I served mini egg salad croissants last time.

I was thinking about serving the following:

-Coffee, assorted teas, homemade hot chocolate
-Mulled wine (?)
-MIL's banana bread muffins with cream cheese or chocolate glaze
-Mini quiche - Using puff pastry and a muffin tin. Would that work? Hoping to scale down this recipe:
-Spiced mixed nuts / Veggie platter
-German Christmas cookies

Alternative to quiche: mini potato pancakes with apple sauce and sour cream. We are in Germany, after all.

Any recommendations? Has anyone had success using puff pastry and/or muffin tins for mini quiche?
