Your mom is sure to be pleased with this refreshing, hip and healthy brunch menu.  This menu is also perfect for a baby or bridal shower brunch/ lunch.  I will post some of the recipes later today and tomorrow.

A few notes:

  • Neufatchel cheese is similar to cream cheese but is naturally lower in fat and its velvety texture makes it more spreadable.  You can substitute low fat cream cheese if you can’t find Neufatchel cheese at your grocery store (it should be next to the cream cheeses).
  • Serve the mini granola parfaits as a fun “appetizer” while you put the finishing touches on the main dishes.  Is will tame the appetite of anyone who skipped breakfast in anticipation of your delicious brunch.
  • To make brunch more casual I usually set up a buffet for the food and a small beverage station (use a tray to hold stacked mugs, glasses, small spoons, milk and sugar) with pitchers of water, juice and a carafe of coffee.
