What does brunch at a restaurant have to do with parties? Inspiration! You can get party inspiration from anywhere. Especially restaurants. Earlier this week I met up with some members of the Portland Bloggers + Creatives group at Three Degrees located on the Columbia river.
Sweet potato bravas. When you invite your friends over for brunch show them your fancy pants plating skills by drawing inspiration from this plating. I didn't have any of these because I don't like sweet potato's. Unless you smother them in marshmallows :D Everyone else at the table tried them and really enjoyed them. They looked really good. I've just never liked sweet potato's.
Surprise your friends at your next BBQ by serving something different. These are veggie burgers on steamed buns with jicama slaw and a spicy aioli. Now I'm not a vegetarian and if I'm going to have a burger I like a meat burger but there's some tasty veggie burger recipes out there.
Get all fancy at your next beach themed party and serve up something like these crab toasts with smashed avocado and pickled fresno peppers. The others at the table really enjoyed these. I don't like the taste of anything that lives in the water so I passed on these. I know, I'm so picky. :D ha ha
Now here's my kind of brunch. Buttermilk waffles with berry compote and kissed with a sprinkling of confectioners sugar. So delicious. A waffle bar is a great brunch party idea. Host it on a Sunday and make it super casual. Tell your friends to come in pj's or sweat pants. Who doesn't love a lazy Sunday.
