Come Party With Me: Baby Shower — Menu

When hosting a baby shower, be sure to consult the mother-to-be before selecting a menu. Her appetite may have changed, so ask her what she wants to enjoy at the party. My pal Denise has requested a delicious spread of savory brunch dishes. Thus the menu will consist of a crisp breakfast pizza made with hash browns and two types of cheese, home fries with peppers and onions, and crunchy slices of fried bacon. The pizza recipe calls for sausage, but I'll make a couple pork-less pies for the vegetarians in attendance.

Supplement the homemade items with easy, grocery store additions. Fresh fruit, plain yogurt, and an assortment of breads are delightful finishing touches. To experiment with these mouth-watering breakfast recipes,

I'm having a baby shower for my sister in a month...I might have to steal some of these ideas!

Sounds good but I think I'd use some more special ingredients on the pizza to make it more celebratory for the occasion like prosciutto or gruyere - something more festive than bulk sausage and cheddar cheese. A nice light salad might be good too - greens with nectarines (or pears or apples) to even out the heavier breakfast foods.

sounds pretty tasty and laid back. I would also have mimosas for anyone who wants them. the "best" baby shower I have been to was a laid back one like this, but it was in the afternoon. it was at a beautiful home and there was great snacks served on silver/china, but in a non-fussy way (it was just beautifully displayed in the dining room, then people got their food and sat in the den area). they had non-alocholic punch that was super good with glass cups, and wine for anyone who wanted it. There were no plastic pastel decorations or games. It was just a relaxing afternoon for the mother-to-be, who just wanted to be with her friends. I really enjoyed it!
