What sort of food would be suitable to take to a Brunch?

danish's, croissants, is it being cooked when you get there or do you have to take ready cooked? bacon and eggs, sausages. brunch is a mixture of breakfast and lunch so anything yummy is ok. Swing by my place first and I will taste test things for you.

I don't know what they are serving, I only know it's brunch! I thought maybe picklets with jam and creme because I don't really have the ingredients for anything else. I'm sure they won't mind if pikelets aren't correct. I'll eat them all hahaha!

Try this:

Spanish Tortilla


* 6 medium potatoes, diced
* 2 small onions, coarsely chopped
* 1/2 teaspoon salt, plus 1/2 teaspoon
* 2 tablespoons sunflower oil, plus 2 tablespoons
* 7 eggs
* 1/4 cup milk
* Serving suggestion: tomato salad drizzled with olive oil


In a medium bowl mix the potatoes, onions, and 1/2 teaspoon salt by hand.

Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large non-stick frying pan. Fry the potatoes and onions on low heat and cover with a lid for 5 minutes to let them soften. Turn up the heat for another 5 minutes until golden brown. Remove from the stove and drain off any excess oil.

Meanwhile break the eggs into a medium bowl. Add the remaining salt and milk and whisk vigorously until frothy. Add the potatoes and onions to the eggs and mix until fully integrated.

Clean the frying pan and return to stove.

Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil on a high heat and pour in the mixture, moving it around in the pan to help the tortilla to rise. Fry until golden brown, stirring occasionally until it has set. Then turn down the heat to allow the inside to cook. After a few minutes turn up the heat in order to brown the tortilla.

When it's cooked place a large plate over the frying pan and flip the tortilla onto it. Return to the pan and fry the other side until golden brown.

Wow that sounds amazing - thanks :)

My ex is Spanish & made this all the time, the secret in turning it is to slide it onto a large plate then put one over the top , turn upside down & slide back into frypan.

Fritata is always lovely, however, you need to make it just before serving.

wow gibby ~ that sounds wicked! thanks for sharing that. I was with a scottish chef at one stage (a terrible stage I might add! ) but I managed to *borrow* the most decadent pate recipe from him ... just forget the diet that's all!
