    Ideas for brunch food?

    Shop Now
    I'm having brunch here next Sunday and I need some ideas for a few dishes I can make that are primal but my guests won't say "wtf is that??". My friends love my cooking and my parties, but it has always been carb-fest for them and I eat my own thing. That needs to change

    I am going to make a crustless quiche and bacon wrapped asparagus, and I know one person is making the filling for egg burritos. I think we are set on egg dishes.

    99% sure my other friend will be making something I can't eat.

    So.... I'd like to come up with 2-3 more dishes that are primal and delicious, yet not so far out there that people won't want to try them.

    Any ideas are appreciated!

    A fruit salad with nuts, coconut, one will know it's not primal. :-)

    If you are looking for baked goods, I might try and apple and banana loaf

    Apples and Bananas Bread (With Chocolate Chunks!) | A Mom On A Mission . . . . . . to nurture and nourish her family

    or banana cake

    Go Nuts! Go Bananas! Rich and Gooey Almond Butter Banana Cake | A Mom On A Mission . . . . . . to nurture and nourish her family

    If you want more veggies for a side dish, lime and coconut yams might be a winner, and not to far from the standard fare.

    Lime in the Coconut Yams, and Why I Love Coconut Oil | A Mom On A Mission . . . . . . to nurture and nourish her family

    Good luck with your menu planning!

    Chicken drumsticks should be acceptable as a branch meal. Various veggies - I particularly like kohlrabi cut so resembles French fries + green beans (same length, about 2 inches). Or you can buy red beet, slice it (1 cm, not less), slice some garlic, put it all in the foil, add olive oil and some salt, make a package and put it in the oven for about 50 minutes. It is divine.

    oh and egg white crepes stuffed with full fat greek yogurt and fruit!

    A variety of sliced meats and cheeses: ham, beef, turkey, salami, pepperoni and several cheeses, all easy to store afterwards which is also good. Fruit skewers are attractive; a variety of nuts; mini-quiches; a big ham/roast for people to cut bits off is always impressive; chocolate covered strawberries; fiber or nut thins for "crackers"; a punch bowl of sangria or wine punch is easy and looks very appealing. I am now very hungry!

    Just about everybody likes prosciutto-wrapped melon. Last month I went to a potluck and took a tomato-basil-bocconcini mozzarella salad that was well received.

    These would be good counterpoints to buttery-greasy bacon and egg dishes.

    Baby mozarella chunks wrapped with basil and prosciutto, alternate with cherry tomatoes on mini skewers.
