Birthday Brunch- the Savory

savorybrunch1Now that you’ve seen the highlights of my roommate’s birthday brunch, let’s take a detailed look at the menu, starting with the savory bites.  When planning each item, we tried to keep them simple, yet delicious and still exciting.  In addition, we opted for items that could be finished in one to two bites or were easy to eat on the go, since we were using out dinning room table for the food display.  We didn’t want our guests to feel uncomfortable while eating on our coach or standing up and mingling.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place popcorn chicken in a single layer and bake for 10 minutes.

Halfway through cooking the chicken, place Eggo waffles in a single layer on a baking sheet, and cook for 5 minutes until golden brown.

While still warm, carefully assemble chicken & waffle bite, using a wooden skewer to secure the two together. Drizzle with Maple Syrup or provide a side for guests to dip individually.
