Semi-finger food brunch buffet recipes, please?

Recommended Posts

Hot or cold items. And, we will be using plates and can easily have a fork, so it doesn't need to be strictly a finger food -- just not something that is super messy, requires cutting, etc.


Also, this will be a buffet brunch, so the food will need to "hold up" with some sitting time.


Oh, and I am fairly inept in the kitchen. So, think "cooking for dummies" type recipes. Stuff that would be difficult to screw up too badly. ;)

Baked Cheese Grits! It's not a finger food but it's not messy and you can just dip it with a spatula or large spoon. Everyone loves it, even people who have never had grits.


6 cups water

2 1/4 teaspoons salt

2 cups yellow grits (not quick or instant; 12 oz)

1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

2 tablespoons chopped garlic

1/2 lb Cheddar, coarsely grated (2 cups)

3 large eggs

1 cup whole milk

Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 350°F.

Bring water and 3/4 teaspoon salt to a boil in a 4-quart heavy pot.

Add grits in a slow stream, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and gently simmer, stirring frequently to avoid sticking, until very thick, about 30 minutes. (Use a long-handled spoon to avoid bubbling and popping hot grits.)

Add butter, remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, pepper, garlic, and cheese, stirring until butter and cheese are melted. Lightly beat eggs and milk in a small bowl, then stir into grits until combined. Pour into an ungreased 8-inch square baking dish (2 inches deep) and bake until set and lightly browned, about 1 hour. Serve immediately.

Here are two:


Sausage pinwheels:

2 containers of crescent rolls

1lb uncooked bulk turkey sausage (I like turkey sausage because it's a really mild flavor)


unroll crescent dough, press seams and perforations together

spread 1/2 package of sausage across the dough

Roll up (from the long side) and then slice into rounds. (Repeat with remaining crescent rolls and sausage)


Bake at 375 for 15ish minutes.


Cheddar Sausage muffins:

1 lb bulk pork sausage

1 can condensed ceddar cheese soup

1 cup shredded cheese

2/3 cup water

3 cups bisquick


Brown sausage and drain. In a bowl combine the soup, cheese and water. Stir in bisquick until blended. Add sausage.


Fill greased muffin pan 3/4 full.


Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes. Makes about 2 dozen.
