Paleo, but girly, breakfast for a bunch of non-paleo women?

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created February 25, 2012 at 4:16 PM

I am planning to have some friends from church over for breakfast in a few weeks. I want it to be really cute and girly, but also paleo. I plan on making egg "muffins" with eggs, sausage, and full-fat cheese (I eat a little bit of dairy), and also serve coffee and fresh fruit. Any ideas for other breakfast items that would fit this girly type event?

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I feel your pain, though. I grew up eating mostly kosher.

Reuben Benedict looks so good. Unfortunately i live in a household where you aren't allowed to cook beef :/

Smoked salmon is making me hungry. You could make deviled eggs with smoked salmon and caviar. If you can afford it =)

Yeah, agree with this, a nice cup of soup with a garnish is a wonderful addition to a brunch.

I'm not saying that I won't eat "manly" foods, I'm saying I want to make delicate things to go with the theme of the event I'm planning. It's about creating a certain atmosphere at a party, not some desire to separate foods by gender.

Eggs, smoked salmon. I would challenge the idea that there are "cute and girly" foods. We will never get women into positions of power if they even divide their food into male and female!

Maybe smoked salmon with capers, red onion and cream cheese. Or a butternut-squash soup with bacon garnish, and a mixed green salad with toasted pecans and goats cheese.

Berries and whipped cream, a cheese plate, since you do dairy.

Here is what I would serve

Pickled plate - Blue Cheese stuffed olives, fresh thick-cut pickles, pickled peppers and cauliflower.

Caprese Salad (Whole milk mozzarella, fresh basil, fresh tomato, olive oil, balsamic, salt and pepper).

Smoked salmon wrapped around cream cheese, bacon, and a green onion.

Egg salad with bacon, rolled into lettuce leaves or served on ribs of celery, topped with chives.

Dessert: Slightly frozen strawberry/banana puree with shaved dark chocolate served in a martini glass.

I love the egg muffins idea, plus someone else's idea about whipped cream and berries, but perhaps a baked almond flour based item like madelines or financiers? Those are both very girly, delicate treats. You could always do a regular financier recipe, and use a tiny bit of all purpose gluten free flour as the flour (the ratio of flour to almond flour is already small in financier recipes) so it should still taste good, even white rice flour could suffice. Good luck and have fun!!

I would go with sliced banana with Paleo Nutella swirled on top. Garnished with dried rose petals or cinnamon.

Reuben Benedict (is that girly?) http://cavegirlcuisine.net/2012/07/07/reuben-benedict/

Or these crab/salmon cakes as a base for Eggs Benedict instead of muffin: http://ourlifeinfood.com/2012/09/02/salmon-and-crab-cakes-with-avocado/

Pear Pancetta Crisps with Goat Cheese and Honey Drizzle for brunch dessert or app (I like it better with fig honey than real honey) http://www.eat-drink-smile.com/2010/11/pear-pancetta-crisps-with-goat-cheese-and-honey.html

Cobb Salad Deviled Eggs (yogurt is optional) http://appetizer.betterrecipes.com/cobb-salad-style-deviled-eggs.html

And I will always love mimosas with brunch. Paleo or not, I adore the $10 bottomless mimosa weekend brunches they have around here.

Grilled asparagus as a base, with salmon in the middle, and a poached egg on top. Served with fruit salad and sparkling water with a few frozen berries as ice cubes.

How about a Moroccan style orange salad? Get gorgeous oranges. Peel by slicing the skin off with a knife. Slice remaining orange horizontally. Lay out on a pretty platter and spritz (if you can) with orange blossom water. Or brush a little bit on, or ever so gently toss or sprinkle. Shortly before you serve, sprinkle the orange slices with some nice cinnamon. It's one of those things that is greater than the sum of its parts.

I made an awesome goat cheese & mushroom tart for my husband for Valentines day: http://freshhabits.blogspot.com/2012/02/mushroom-goat-cheese-tart.html You could also use the same idea to make mini-tarts in tartlette shells. Or a similar quiche like filling in individual custard cups.

I'd totally do the berries & whipped cream thing too. And perhaps proscuitto wrapped melon slices. And lox rolled around cucumber & avocado and sliced into sushi rolls garnished with capers. And either deviled egss or a few heart molded eggs, like here: http://www.annathered.com/2010/09/29/how-to-make-a-heart-shaped-egg/

Yeah, brunch ideas, I haz them.

There are certain flower petals you can eat. Since they are non-paleo you wouldn't hurt their feelings with some half dollar sized coconut flower pancakes and maple syrup.

I've always found bacon and black coffee to be sufficiently "girly." Not to be snarky. :) How about smoked fish/kippers/herring/mackerel/sardines?
