Shades of Pink Brunch – The Menu

Ham & Cheese Quiche

Ham & Cheese Quiche

One of my favorite aspects of planning an event is creating the menu.  It usually evolves over weeks as I add, subtract, and sometimes, totally redo the entire thing.

When I’m planning for a large event, I like to construct a menu that enables me to do a lot of the cooking the day before.  I love recipes that I can put together the night before, pop it in the fridge and cook it right before the event.

cupcake1So, here’s what I did for our Shades of Pink Brunch – The Menu.  I made everything myself except the breakfast casserole (thanks to daughter #2) and of course, the blueberry (Boberry) biscuits.  Note:  Click on the recipes that are highlighted in red for the link that I used.  If it’s not highlighted, scroll down for the recipe.

Slow Cooker Breakfast Casserole


  • 1 doz. eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 bag (32 oz frozen) hash brown potatoes
  • 1 lb. bacon, cooked crisp
  • 3/4 cup chopped sweet onion
  • 1-1/2 cup shredded cheese (cheddar, jack or both)
  • salt, pepper and garlic powder


  1. Spray inside of slow cooker with nonstick spray. Layer potatoes, bacon, onion, cheese - 1/3 of each - three times. In a large bowl, beat eggs with milk and seasonings. Pour egg mixture over the ingredients in the slow cooker. Cook on low 10-12 hours, until eggs are set and thoroughly cooked.

Faux Pink Champagne


  • 4 cups ginger ale (I use diet)
  • 4 cups club soda
  • 3 cups white grape juice
  • 1/4 cup grenadine (I used sugar free Skinny Mixes non-alcoholic Strawberry Daiquiri)


  1. Make sure all the ingredients are well chilled. Mix a few minutes before serving. I doubled the recipe many times for the spring brunch. This delicious, low calorie pink concoction is just the thing for a pink party!
