Hosting a luncheon for a crowd or just a few? My church recently hosted a Ladies’ Luncheon. And while I may not be able to help you pull together all of the details for your gathering, I can share the delicious menu we had. With the help of some dedicated ladies from church, it was a hit.
This was a delicious, light salad. I love the addition of fresh fruit to the mix. I opted to substitute a milder cheese, Brie, instead of goat cheese.
I am not sure that you could ever go wrong with Monkey Bread in any way. These savory little gems were delicious. They are best served warmed through.
This salad was absolutely delicious. The creamy cucumber dressing is the star. I did make a few adjustments to my recipe adding sundried tomatoes instead of fresh, and opting for real bacon instead of turkey (I’m sorry, I just can’t).
These were a hit. This was a ladies’ luncheon and all, but there were a few ladies who went back for seconds, thirds, and dare I say a fourth (seriously)…they are that good. What’s better is that they are a snap to pull together.
Third Course (Dessert):
These little miniature versions of the classic cake were delicious and just the right size for a dessert plate featuring a trio of delicious treats.
You say truffles, and I am there. I’m not sure that I have met a truffle I didn’t like, and these were no exception. The ladies who created these for the luncheon made them to utter perfection. They used candy coating instead of white chocolate. I highly recommend doing this. The candy coating provided a smooth finish and one that held up to room temperature conditions. I also recommend serving them in little bon-bon papers.
Okay, so there are good desserts, then there are delicious desserts, and then, there are these. I’m glad I didn’t have the responsibility of making these for the luncheon. I’m not sure they all would have made it to the church kitchen. Just sayin’! Yes, make these. Take my word for it!.
