  • Mini bread buns with a variety of filling (ham, chicken, cheese, brie, camembert, lettuce tomato, cucumber etc), pizza (different types), boiled eggs, crackers cheeses, olives, croissants, hash browns, spinach triangles, fruit platters, etc

  • What about a high tea theme. Or a bagel platter, people can make their own. Can use cream cheese, smoked salmon or ham or turkey, sliced onion and lettuce, capers or try a sweet one with some jams.

  • bacon and egg rolls or a breakfast bbq with bacon, sausages, eggs and toast.

  • You can’t go wrong with a grazing board or try the pavlova grazing board idea they had on the recipes page for something different!
    Even things like pastries from the bakery section at your local supermarket with a few trays of fruit to help beat the heat.

  • If you want it to be quick easy and the weather is not too hot, maybe have finger food that you only have to heat. Either bought or home made. Some foods you can make in advance or make and freeze, Check if is there anybody special dietary needs and you have to keep some foods isolated from others. Platters with or without dips are something that some people enjoy.

  • Make a stack of pancakes and have different toppings on hand for people to make their own. otherwise bacon and egg rolls/ English muffins go down a treat and a side serve of bought and baked hash browns are always a winner.

  • I found a grazing board worked really well and then it appealed to all eaters and lots of the prep work can be done ahead of time or simple bought and put together. different coloured fruit, choc coated pretzels, nuts, dried fruit, boiled eggs, cold meats, cheeses, quartered avocado, bought quiche, crackers or a nice sourdough loaf, cold blueberry or banana pancakes etc the list is endless. get different height boards and bowls and have lots of colour.

  • Mini pizzas sandwiches pasta fried chicken

  • cheat scones definitely, served with whipped cream and jam.


    3 cups of self raising flour
    Pinch of salt
    1 cup of cream
    1 cup of lemonade (or sparkling water)

    Sift the flour and salt. Add the liquids and mix with a knife until just combined. Roll out gently onto a floured surface and cut into shape

    Place in the oven for 10-15 mins on 200c

  • Quiches, stuffed capsicums, croissants, cheeses and salads. All with good coffee, fresh juice and sparkling water, :)

  • - Warm croissants with the option to add ham and cheese and/or tomato, or jam and butter.
    – A selection of dips, cheese, meats and crackers
    – Mini quiche, mini muffins, sausage rolls and party pies, or pizza squares
    – Warm pancakes, either bought or shake and make your own, and serve with a selection of toppings like jam and cream, ice cream and chocolate sauce, lemon juice and sugar, fresh or frozen berries, and scrambled eggs and ham for savoury options. People can top their own.
    – A fruit and cheese platter

  • Cheese Crackers sour dough bread fruit and plenty of fluids

  • Scrambled eggs; warmed croissants; slices of fruit.

  • Lots of finger foods and food that are good for grazing.

  • Picnic is always lovely and being outdoors a bonus!
