I get the impression sausage rolls and cheese twists ain’t gonna cut it.
Has to be cold so don’t have to reheat it, and travel in a car. Also not break the bank!
I was going to make a feta tart type thing with filo pastry, possibly a frittata with lots of herbs. Any other suggestions ?

I really want to know what a middle class lunch buffet is? And what other types of buffet there are!

Middle class? confused

What the fuck is a "middle class" buffet?

Do you mean like in a school with lower and upper and middle levels?

I'm so glad you've asked that first don because it's exactly what I was wondering.

A middle class buffet 😂

So no sausages on sticks or Monster Munch in a bowl?

Cheese and pineapple hedgehog

Waitrose essentials sausage rolls and cheese twists, obv.

Jackshouse Fri 18-Jan-19 12:35:39

Pate, antipasta meat selections, cheese board, olives and bits and nice bread. Don’t forget butter.

ROFL @ middle class lunch buffet

Know exactly what you mean though

I personally don't like cold filo so if I was going to do a quiche I'd use shortcrust. With a quiche I'd probably buy ready made shortcrust pastry rather than making from scratch as it's hard to tell the difference in a quiche IMO. Add eggs, cream, grated string cheese and some cooked veg.

Or a feta salad with felafels would be pretty hilarious grin

Quiche, fritatta, tart, pizza
Sandwiches - cheese and pickle, ham and mustard, jam, egg mayo, tuna and tomato.
Cheese scones/muffins
Summer soup (served cold)
Crackers cheese and fruit selection

I mean...what?

AlpacaLypse Fri 18-Jan-19 12:36:54

The middle classes eat sausage rolls and cheese twists too. And not even artisan ones.... smile

Taffeta Fri 18-Jan-19 12:37:02

Grated strong cheese

String cheese would be a no-no with the Carolines grin

FrowningFlamingo Fri 18-Jan-19 12:37:35

What Jackshouse said.
Plus crust-less cucumber sandwiches of course grin

Sausages on sticks obviously to go with the cheese and pineapple hedgehog, Mr Kipling's French fancies, pink wafers and party rings.

Oh come the fuck on people, we all know what a frigging middle class buffet is. Stop being so offended, the lot of you. Frigging champagne socialists.

Not sure if it qualifies but there was a great recipe in Waitrose - filo pastry baked with walnuts, dolcelatte, cream, eggs and figs .....

Taffeta Fri 18-Jan-19 12:38:28

Actually I'd do something vegan

And shout really loud about it being vegan

Felafel salad grin

FrowningFlamingo Fri 18-Jan-19 12:39:32

Speak for yourself @AlpacaLypse I wouldn't touch a sausage roll with a polo bat, especially if it's not even artisan.

PurpleDaisies Fri 18-Jan-19 12:39:53

Greggs vegan sausage rolls.
