I'm having some friends over for a champagne brunch, and trying to come up with dishes that will (a) use some of what's in my CSA delivery this week, (b) be festive & upscale and (c) be easy to prepare so I can actually spend time with my guests.
So far, I have the following ideas, but they don't pair well with each other, and seem rather disjointed. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated:
- spinach, sausage & gruyere frittata
- french toast bread pudding with poached pears
- citrus salad with mint & orange blossom dressing
see what I mean? disjointed!
Also - can I serve brunch in "courses"? Or do I bring everything out at once and let people serve themselves? Have never done a brunch before!
