    What is your starter for your wedding breakfast?

    My H2B would win the world's fussiest eater title. We need a starter and the one we picked (baked breaded brie) was so bad (frozen!Super Angry) when we had our menu tasting that it has scared us. They have offered to design a starter for us if we would like, but i've no idea what! What is everyone having, or even better, can you flash your menu! It can't be soup, fish, anything that contains garlic or spices (i.e Indian or mexican) and I want something a bit fancier than melon! Oh and I liked the idea of a little tartlet but the vegetrain option we picked is a roasted veg and cheese tart so thought it'd be too much for them.

     

    Thanks Smile

    Hi Janey! We've gone for a leek and potato soup.  Both our parents are fussy eaters and wont eat anything too complicated so our menu is pretty standard!

    We are having Caeser salad followed by roast parsnip soup, then pork with apple sauce and veg then passionfruit cheesecake then coffee and mints. Not spicy or garlicky but delicious all the same!!

    Re: What is your starter for your wedding breakfast?

    Thank you for your quick replies. The soups are a no no! He wouldn't eat smoked salmon and both don't like pate! Don't have many options do I?!

    He is a traditional  meat and 2 veg man! I even heard his mum say the other day 'I tried pasta once when we were on holiday!' Big Smile

    your menu's all sound lovely though

    Re: What is your starter for your wedding breakfast?

    A few suggestions, (all these will depend on the rest of your menu of course)

    A collection of mini starters (canapes on a plate style) then H2B can give you the ones he doesn't like Big Smile

    Melon can be done quite fancy with a raspberry coulis or a mixed berry sauce

    if you have the budget - how about smoked duck with a small salad and either a raspberry coulis or an orange marmalade.

    Hope that helps

    Do you like mushrooms?  How about field mushrooms with a nice cheese melted on them?

    janey2000:
    The soups are a no no!

    Oops sorry I misread your post! I still have a hangover from last night! (Thats my excuse!)

    What about breaded mushrooms - but without the garlic? Or with garlic sauce on the side so everyone else can dip if they want and OH can just have the mushrooms?

    Re: What is your starter for your wedding breakfast?

    Just as another suggestion how about a potato stack? Basically a potato rosti on the bottom and the top with layers of veggies (or meat) inbetween and a complimentary sauce.

    Or a mini potato gratan with a cheesey sauce (possible putting parma ham or bacon in the sauce)

    Can you tell I cook for a living lol Big Smile

    Re: What is your starter for your wedding breakfast?

    i'm also having leek and Potato soup!!! the only thing i can suggest is Brucetta topped with roasted peppers and cheese.  maybe your OH can give you an idea of what he wants, if you don't like it he could always have something different to your other guests!
