This is the first draft of the catering menu.. what do you all think, is this enough food for 60 people, I removed the bread basket idea as well as the fruits to cut costs, but hopefully i can bring my own fruit in and arrange it and just go with donuts and beignets as the guests arrive instead of a full on menu….
Menu Proposal #1:
Belgian Waffle Bar:
Waffles Presented in Chafer with Toppings to include:
Seasonal Fresh Fruit (Strawberries, Berries, etc.)
Dark Chocolate Sauce, Praline Pecan Glaze, Maple Syrup, Toasted Walnuts, Homemade Whipped Cream, Magnolia Honey Jelly
Omelet Station (or Fritatta Station):
Set outside on porch
Cooked to Order Omelets toppings to include:
Diced Ham, Cheddar Cheese, Mushrooms, Green Onions, Spinach, Pepperjack Cheese
Breakfast Potato Bar (or Stationary Breakfast Casserole):
Fresh Brabant –Style Potatoes served in Martini Glasses and toppings to include:
Shredded Cheddar Cheese, Crumbled Applewood Smoked Bacon, Diced Sauteed Honey Ham, Sour Cream, Diced Green Onions, Crumbled Breakfast Sausage

Sound delicious! It’ll also probably be more then enough food for 60 people! You really make me wish I was going for a breakfast menu instead of a BBQ dinner menu! 🙂

Sounds yummy. If you can swing it cost wise, I would try to add the fruit back in…. but I’m a super fruit lover.

Ahhh you’re making my hungry. It sounds to die for. Is there any way to work in the fruit? Fruit in the morning tastes sinfully good. 🙂

Oh man, it definitely looks like you’ve got it covered. Now I’m hungry!

Mmmm. I want a breakfast reception! You’ve inspired me… we weren’t going to do a morning after brunch, but now I want one!
Your menu sounds delicious & its definitely enough food for 60 people! How does the omelette station work? Are your guests going to have a long wait time to get their food? Just curious 🙂

@RB: Basically they would go out side to the deck and there will be a chef preparing the omelets to order. The waffles will be a self serve thing as well as the potatoe bar (because I don’t have enough cash to have servers for it :()
@soontobe and layla: i love fruit too!! i am adding strawberries and grapes (our faves) back in and that isn’t as cost prohibitive of having a full fruit spread. I gave her the top number I can spend. She came in at an awesome price, unfortunately it’s just over what we can spend I think. I would rather come in low and then add more if we can find money somewhere else.
@mimosa:i’m hungry too lol!! probably because I’m on the Special K diet though.

That sounds yummy!
What exactly are brabant potatoes? Is that similar to mashed or hashbrowns or something else?

I would swap out the spinach for bell peppers (that is my personal preference). Everything looks good otherwise!
