Help me put together a menu for a Bruch Baby shower!

So far, I have:


Pear and Blue Cheese Frittata


Smoked Salmon and Green Onion Frittata


...and that's it!


Ideas anyone? Anyone have a good punch recipe?

are you having a cake for it? If not it might be nice to have several little desserts instead of one cake so that there's more options?


I'm not a fan of eggs, but some of my friends have tried out recipes for breakfast casseroles that have like eggs, cheese, and ham. Might be a nice brunch item?


I'm not familiar with frittata, so I'm not sure what would go with it.

My FMIL is bringing a cake....I was thinking maybe getting some pies seeing as it was going to be late August and a nice Strawberry Rhubarb pie w/ whipped cream would be nice.


Fritatta is kinda like a fancy omelette :).

oh ok, then my breakfast casserole idea was kind of along the same lines as what you already have planned.


I think fruit salad would be nice. Strawberry pie sounds nice too = ) I have a recipe for mini cheesecakes-you make them in muffin pans. That would be so cute! Since it's a baby shower I would call them baby cheesecakes hahaha


What about mini blue berry muffins? geez what is it with me and making things mini today? hahaha they're just so cute that way

you could also make rhubarb squares and instead of cutting them in squares use a onesie cookie cutter.

My favorite punch is the old classic...I call it the baby shower punch.  Ginger Ale and sherbert ice cream....  I love it!

Ok, here's the mini cheesecake recipe


Ingredients:



  • 1/3 cup graham cracker crumbs

  • 1 tbs margarine, melted

  • 1/4 cup & 1 tbp white sugar

  • 1 (8 ounce) package of cream cheese (softened)

  • 1 1/2 tps lemon juice

  • 1/4 tps vanilla extract

  • 1 egg


Directions:



  • Preheat oven to 325 and grease a 6 cup muffin pan

  • In a medium bowl, mix together the graham cracker crumbs, tbs of sugar,and margarine with a fork until combined.

  • Measure a rounded tablespoon of the mixture into the bottom of each muffin cup, pressing firmly.

  • Bake in pre-heated oven for 5 mins, then remove to cool but keep the oven on.

  • Beat together the cream cheese, 1/4 cup sugar, lemon juice, adn vanilla until fluffy.

  • Add egg.

  • Pour the cream cheese mixture into the muffin cups, filling each 3/4 full.

  • Bake at 325 for 25 mins.

  • Cool completely in pan before removing. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

  • Of course you can add any fruit/chocolate topping you'd like.


I just made these tonight and I had a few small problems so hopefully I'll get better at it. The tops of the cheesecakes kind of split open so it had cracks in the top. Not sure what caused it or how to fix it? When I removed them from the pan the crust part on most of them started to crumble off. I think maybe it was a little too dry, so I may add a little extra butter to the crust part next time. It only makes 6, so next time I'm going to double the recipe. 6 mini cakes won't last long around my house! I told DH I was going to cook them tonight and he called from work to check in on how they were going hahaha. If he's that excited and hasn't eaten one yet I know these will be gone by tomorrow

miss_em if you make those cheesecakes let me know how it goes! I want to figure out what I did wrong with the crusts so that the crust part doesn't crumble on me next time = )

jbl - you could try baking it in a water bath > place the muffin pan in larger baking dish and put boiling water into the larger baking dish until it comes about half way up the side of the muffin pan - basically the muffin pan is sitting in a bath of hot water. it's supposed to help it bake more evenly and i think it also adds moisture inside the oven so that the tops won't dry out and crack.

another sweet dish you could serve is a french toast bake, which is basically like a bread pudding. you could probably bake it in a large muffin pan as well to make mini ones. i made bread pudding today and it was yummy - light and fluffy and not overly sweet. seemed perfect for a brunch item!
