Catholic Recipe: Confirmation Breakfast Sample Menus

After a baptism, a confirmation, a first communion, or a morning wedding, a breakfast is usually served. Such a breakfast is really more like a luncheon, with three courses the general rule. It can be a buffet or a sit-down affair, as you choose.

The first three occasions are usually family affairs, with only a small number of guests, and the menus for these breakfasts have been planned for a group of 8 or 10 persons.


Fall or Winter Shrimp Bisque (see recipe)
Ham a la King on Corn Bread Squares (see recipe)
Buttered Baby Limas
Chicory and Sliced Stuffed Olive Salad
Raspberry Sherbet
Petits Fours (see recipe)

Spring or Summer Jellied Madrilene
Shrimp Vol-au-Vent (see recipe)
Petits Pois
Raw Relish Tray (Carrot Curls, Fringed Celery, Radish Roses, Black Olives, Stuffed Olives, Gherkins)
Strawberry Ice Cream
Lemon Wafers
Coffee (see recipe)
Tea (see recipe)
