Recommendations for low-salt Mother's Day brunch

I decided to have my MIL and SIL over for brunch on Sunday, but I wasn't thinking about my MIL's high blood pressure issues. I'm not sure what to serve, since bacon, etc. are out. So, I need a main course (frittata?) and dessert ideas. Thanks.

Thanks everyone! I decided to make a frittata and just not put cheese on the entire top :). Also serving a pea crostini and an artichoke salad. Meyer lemon tart for dessert. Should be good to go now!

If you add shredded cheese, use just a little. But of a cheese choose a 5 yr-old cheddar, or another that has a big flavour Cheese inherently has a lot of salt. Another idea is fresh salmon with wild rice or a wild rice combination. Dried cranberries & sliced almonds are nice with it, sautéed onions too add a green salad & a fruit salad with a cookie or chocolate & you have a superb lunch. You can cook the salmon the day before, serve it cold & it. Will be easier

You could make a wonderful frittata using mushrooms for your umami rather than meat. Onions, peppers, some green garlic, maybe ramps? and some great cheese shredded in or on top.

If you make a vegetable quiche with fresh eggs and a cheese like Parmesan, you really don't need to add much salt. Leave it out and double the fresh herbs for more flavor if you like.
For dessert, a fruit salad is always lovely, especially in the morning. Or you could do poached pears with a scoop of cinnamon laced ricotta
