Last weekend, I hosted a brunch with my girlfriends via this post. It wasn’t just an ordinary brunch, we also did some art. I wanted the brunch menu to be light and reminiscent of a cocktail party. Since the ladies would be mingling and drinking their mimosa, I wanted the food to be bite size and easy to eat. I decided to make mini multigrain pancake and strawberry skewers, mini frittatas with parmesan and peas and smoked salmon and cream cheese crostinies. I don’t know whether it was because everything was small or because I served the brunch on cake stands but everyone was crazy for the food. I made everything in less than 2 hours. After hosting this brunch, I thought it was a great way to gather your friends together for a low budget afternoon. The best part is that you don’t have to wait on long lines!
After I made the pancake batter according to the directions, I made silver dollar pancakes. I alternated between a strawberry and pancake on the skewer. Serve with maple syrup.
After I whisked all the ingredients together, I poured the egg mixture into a greased mini muffin pan and baked in a 375 degree oven for 10 minutes. I let the frittatas completely cool before I popped them out and served with toothpicks.
For the crostini, I cut the baguette into thin slices and brushed olive oil on top. I baked them in the oven for 15 minutes at 375 degrees or until they were golden brown.
For the cream cheese spread, I mixed the cream cheese and milk in the mixer until the cream cheese was smooth. I added chopped chives and seasoned with salt and pepper.
To assemble, I spread a little bit of the cream cheese mixture on the crostini and topped with a slice of smoked salmon. I finished with a little piece of chive on top.
