    Default Picnic brunch ideas

    I'm going to a picnic brunch tomorrow and need to bring 'a plate to share'.

    Any ideas?

    It can't be too pricey either, I'm pretty broke.

    Thanks!

    Mini spinach and ricotta quiches? I made a delicious batch this week - 3 dozen cost about $15 to make and super easy. Could do bacon and tomato too. And seeing as 3 dozen is probably more than you need you could freeze a stack!

    Default Picnic brunch ideas

    Bruschetta - just chop ripe tomatoes, basil and red onion and dress with olive oil and balsamic vinegar - buy a French stick ( long baguette ) and cut into slices, put in oven tomorrow morning and cook until toasted about 5 mins , rub with a clove of cut garlic and put tomato mix in bowl or dish and place on platter surrounded with bread slices and people can just spoon mix over their bread as required! ( a fancier version is roast some cut cherry tomatoes and spread the bread with goats cheese, place roasted cherry tomatoes on top and sprinkle fresh basil and drizzle caramalised balsamic over the top )

    Or maybe an avocado salsa ( diced avocado, chilli, tomato, red onion and lime juice ) with corn chips and fresh guacamole

    Ooh do you think I could do sushi? I have most of the ingredients already. Is it 'brunchy' enough?


    Liking the bruschetta idea too. Yum.

    Cheesymite or Hawaiian puff pastry scrolls? Very quick and cheap!

    Everyone loves sushi when someone else makes it! I'd love you if you brought this!

    OMG I just reread the title and it says picnic brunch lol. I just saw picnic ideas 😂

    sorry, Greek salad is prob not very brunchy.

    I'd take a leek & cheese tart instead!

    This thread is exactly what I need, I'm going to something similar tomorrow for lunch and had no idea what to bring, these sound perfect as DH is a vegetarian so saves me making separate dishes, too.
    Might do these myself 😃
