A roasted red pepper sauce might be an option. And if he can't have chunky things yet then you can always smooth salsa in a blender or food processor.

On my omelets I LOVE an Asian sauce called Tonkatsu - very good and very flavorful!!! I feel sure it would work with Quiche. If a LOT of sauce has to be used then I would thin it with some sort of stock and then re-thicken it with a slurry, which, would require heating it.

Sounds like it's time for a fondue party

Imho. you're going to have to ask her or someone else who knows exactly what he can and can't eat, in order to prepare a menu you are sure he will be able to eat and enjoy. It will be a really BIG surprise if he can't eat the food, and not in a good way.... Just my 5 cents....

I know he eats "regular" foods on a daily basis, but it makes it easier for him to have foods with sauces, simply to keep his palate moist, and provide liquid to help swallowing. I know he can eat anything as long as he has a drink to wash it down with, but, if I could make it easier for him, I would like to.

Thanks so much for all of the advice given, I think he'll really appreciate the variety and effort that has gone into making a menu that he can truly enjoy.

If it isn't too late..

I think a classic Buerre Blanc sauce would work great.
White wine, white wine vinegar, onion, cook it down, add some butter, cream. Pour over the eggs... very tasty...

Just make sure it doesn't brown as it cooks down.

It isn't too late, and that sounds amazing. I'll definitely add it to the list, along with some of the other suggestions I've gotten!

The brunch isn't until Sunday, so I have plenty of time to get more responses!

Thanks!!
