I would LOVE a brunch wedding- breakfast foods are my favorite!  I do see your FI’s point that chicken alfredo doesn’t really “go” with everything, but could you do a chicken and waffles?  That way if you have any vegetarians they can have a waffle without the chicken (and still enjoy fruits & veggies, salad, and home fries, unless they eat eggs as well in which case they can have the omelette & quiche)…

What about chicken apple sausage? Its a crowd-pleaser, and would give the non-pork eaters something to eat. 

 

Otherwise I think it looks great, I would love to eat that!

Well I’m a vegetarian, so I would be fine with the omelet bar, but I’m wondering about vegans? Do they have faux eggs at the omelet bar? Could you add a hearty salad that’s vegan?

I’m having a brunch wedding too. I agree that the chicken alfredo doesn’t really go. I’m having a beef brisket and a carved turkey with a cranberry orange glaze as my meat options. If you want a breakfasty steak I think chicken fried steak is a fairly common breakfast thing. I also like the chicken and waffles suggestion.

I like the sound of everything bar the chicken alfredo. I tend to agree wth your fiance on this one. I like the chicken sausage idea, maybe even a chicken foccacia?

If you’re thinking about doing chicken and waffles on a buffet, you can’t really count it as vegetarian because they’ll be in the same pan and most vegetarians I know won’t eat things that have come into contact with meat.

 

Instead of the chicken alfredo, perhaps a lighter salmon preparation like a grilled salmon in lemon dill butter would work?  It is a very brunch-y selection and not only satisfies a non-pork place, but is a bit healthier option (as long as it’s not drowning in butter). Chicken fried steak or chicken fried chicken is one of my favorite breakfast foods but I think doesn’t really give that bridge between lunch and breakfast you’re looking for, and is extremely heavy.

@lotto:  I have to speak up for my fellow non pork eating bees! 99% of the time turkey and chicken sausage links are put into PORK casings! Please check with your provider! Read the labels!!

I don’t have a problem with the pasta. Some times I go to a brunch in the mood for breakfasty foods and some times I lean more towards lunchy foods.

 

Is there a way you can do a pasta station? Like two different sauces and some add ins?  That way if people are vegan/vegetarian they can add in their own stuff?

@VossinatorsButterfly:  Oh don’t worry I know, I lived with someone who kept kosher for five years. There are some great brands though that are in synthetic casings.
