These all sound so good! I love trying new/different things, but most of our family members on both sides would starve if we served anything too different. Since it’s in the South on a hunting lodge, however, we’re getting away with a little bit.

Hors d’oeuvres:

Bite size bacon wrapped quail breast

Pimento cheese bruschetta or fig jam, bleu cheese and bacon bruschetta (I can’t decide)

Assorted gourmet deviled eggs


Carved bison roast

Fried shrimp or grilled grouper (deciding, it’s so hard!)

Wild rice

Grilled/roasted vegetables (asparagus, peppers, onions, zucchini, etc)

Sweet potato soufflé

Sour cream biscuits


Assorted fruit display

Mini pecan pies

Mini carrot cake bites

Mini bites of chocolate cake with crème anglaise/black cherry filling

At the cocktail hour, cheese, bread, fruits and veggies platters, sausage rolls and one more vegetarian option we haven’t decided on.

@Miss PumpkinPenguin Love this! I’m a southern veg, too, but i definitely want to stay true to my Texas roots. Did you come up with any other BBQ/ Southern foods when brainstorming your menu?
