Some ideas for bridal shower brunch beverages include fresh fruit juices, herbal teas, flavored coffees and mimosas. Brunch foods such as quiche, roasted potatoes, fresh fruit salads, bacon, sausages, Belgian waffles, smoked fish and bread also work well alongside desserts like pastries and cookies.
A good basic quiche recipe for a bridal shower brunch combines Gruyere cheese with onions and seasonings. To make this, saute onions in olive oil, seasoning with salt and pepper and adding parsley when the onions are soft. In a bowl, whisk together eggs, half-and-half, nutmeg and salt, and then add the sauteed onions and Gruyere cheese to combine. Pour this mixture into a pie crust arranged on a baking sheet and bake until an inserted knife comes out clean. Serve with mixed greens tossed in olive oil and seasoned with a little salt and pepper.
One recipe for a bridal shower brunch is Potato Gaufrettes with Salmon and Dill Sauce from Martha Stewart, To make these, fry potato slices until crisp and then drain. Arrange on a plate topped with a slice of smoked salmon and a sauce of whisked creme fraiche, lemon juice and zest, capers, shallot, dill, salt and pepper. Garnish with a sprig of dill and a little lemon zest.
