I had a brunch not to long ago and I was doing induction so I was determined to be able to eat too and was determined to serve a great menu it would be super healthy for everybody.
(eggs, breakfast sausage, cheddar cheese, green onions) baked in individual muffin cups (the metalic cups peel off better)
Chicken Salad on Cucumber.
Finely chopped chicken (food processor) with mayo and caraway seeds to make a chicken salad that is served on cucumber slices (arrange the cucumber slices on a tray and add a tablespoon or so of the chicken salad. The cucumbers act like crackers.
Cream Cheese spread
Cream Cheese with mayo, green olives chopped, walnuts chopped. Should be able to hold it's shape, not to soft not to hard. Put a tablespoon or so on top of cucumber slices.
. Splenda has an okay cheese cake recipe. I made individual servings in muffin cups (again the metallic cup liners peel away better). Used pecans instead of graham crackers for crust. Top with 1 raspberry or a chocolate curl.
. I choose 3 low carb fruits and cut them up into small pieces to make a very pretty fruit salad. Watermelon, papaya, strawberry (1/2 cup is about 6 gm carb)
Set it out buffet style. People raved about it. So delicious, such a lovely presentation. Everybody, including me, enjoyed it. They didn't even know they had been "low carb'd".

Once a year I host a day-long meeting of a bunch of small-business CEOs. As the host, I have to provide a "continental breakfast" style spread before the meeting. The other hosts do the typical bagels, muffins, fruit, etc. I sure want to have some good low-carb options for my spread.
The obvious thing to do is deviled eggs, and I'll be supplying those. Any suggestions for other low-carb, finger food appropriate at breakfast time?
Any ideas appreciated!
