Suggestions for a fruit dish and a pastry for a church brunch that would be reasonable for diabetics

laredo | Apr 19, 2012 02:03 PM

I'm planning a brunch for 30 to 60 people which will take place at my church.

We will be limited on helpers and somewhat limited on budget. I'm hoping to break even at $5.00 a ticket.

Very tentative plans include

serving tomato juice and orange juice as people arrive. Also maybe diet sparkling cranberry juice.

Then an egg casserole with ham; biscuits and gravy; and a fruit something or other. I would like to serve the fruit something or other in a cup, both for convenience and for appeaance.

I would like to have a platter of ???at each table to be passed: mini cinnamon rolls and I don't know what else.

This will take place in June. I can't count on any specific fruit being available in good condition. Most likely strawberries, but who knows? Blueberries and raspberries would be too expensive and their quality at my store is medocre anyway.

I have read various threads on fruit for brunches but haven't encountered just the right thing.

All suggestions will be greatly appreciated!
