Baby Shower Edition Part II…The Food

What makes a great baby shower? I dare say the food! I planned the shower as a “morning” shower and so went with brunch like finger foods. It was delish! The menu was as follows:

Mini cinnamon rolls

Broccoli Ham Crustless Quiche

Mini Muffins (assorted)

Fruit Platter

Pinky Punch

Water

I didn’t get as many pictures as I would have liked, but you get the idea! For added touches to the water, I made my own labels. The labels were printed on a thick scrapbook paper that I found at Michael’s and they said “G is for Girl.” The punch recipe was a light and refreshing drink.

Pinky Punch

  • 64 ounces of Apple juice
  • 64 ounces Cranberry juice
  • 1 liter of Gingerale
  • ice

The main dishes were breakfast food and as always the Cinnamon Rolls were a hit! They never disappoint! Go HERE to make them, too!

And lastly, the recipe for the Crustless Quiche. It is made in a 9×13 pan, but I was trying to keep with the theme of “finger foods”, so I cut the quiche into mini size portion using a biscuit cutter. It turned out cute and it was easy to serve. The biscuit cutter is from a set of 5 that my mom gave me as a gift from Sur la Table. They are now a must have in my kitchen! I use them all the time! Go HERE to check them out!

Broccoli Ham Crustless Quiche

  • 12 eggs
  • 1 pint cottage cheese
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 5 Tablespoons flour
  • 8-12 ounce ham steak, cubed
  • 3 cup broccoli floweretees, blanched
  • 2 cup chopped fresh mushrooms
  • 1 cup onion
  • 3 cups grated cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl beat together eggs, cottage cheese, sour cream and flour. In a medium saucepan saute mushrooms and onion until cooked. (about 5 minutes) Grease a 9×13 baking dish. (I used spray vegetable oil) Put the cubed ham steak in an even layer on the bottom of the dish. Then layer mushroom/onions and broccoli. Then sprinkle the cheese over the veggies. Pour egg mixture over the top and bake for 45 minutes. (insert toothpick in the middle to make sure the eggs are cooked all the way through. Voila!

So with the assorted muffins I ended up cheating a bit. I asked a friend to bring them from a store! I was running out of time and knew I wouldn’t have time to make them! But I promise to post an amazing lemon muffin recipe soon! Yum!
