*Intermittent Hunger Obtaining Postcount

Once a week, on Sundays, I go visit my parents and sister. We have breakfast and catch up on what each of us is up to. But we're looking for a bigger selection of dishes to try in order to spice up the menu, since it's usually one of three or four thingsBiscuits and gravy, Pancakes/Waffles, breakfast burritos or just eggs and sausage/bacon.

So I'm looking for any suggestions for cheap and easy breakfasts we can try out in order to liven up the weekly family gathering.




Also, this is a ding thread.

Congrats. Smiley: flowers

Quiche is easy and can be prepared ahead of time. I make muffins an awful lot - usually blueberry. Serve them up with some breakfast meat (preferably bacon) and fruit. My kids still like pigs in a blanket (sausage wrapped in pancakes) - they are pretty good soaked in real maple syrup.

We've done that too. It's too much like pancakes for my parents. They want something different. Yet each of my suggestions that we have a smoked fish breakfast gets struck down.

Can try various variations on eggs/bacon/etc as well. Suppose it depends on how much effort you want to go into. Eggs Benedict might be a bit time consuming, but basic poached eggs over toast isn't. Second the idea of crepes. Also look at mix and match omelets. Try using chorizo instead of bacon for a bit of variation if you want.

Are you married to the idea of this being "breakfast", or can it be more of a brunch? Cause with brunch, you could look at various soups with bread/toast/whatever. My Dad was always a big Sunday lunch/brunch kind of guy when we were growing up, so we were treated to everything from the aforementioned Huevos Rancheros, to fresh clam soup (we sometimes went clamming, go figure!), to lemon roasted chicken. Another idea is bagel-pizza. Cut bagels in half, spread tomato paste (or a prepared marinara type sauce depending on how fancy you want to be) add toppings (cheese, pepperoni, whatever). Toss in oven on cookie sheet (or in toaster oven I suppose) for a short while and then eat. You can go lighter, with cottage cheese and whatever goes with cottage cheese, salads, fruit, etc if you want.

Any kind of family event tends to be important. Even if all you are doing is going out for breakfast. National chains can be nice but they tend to be impersonal and they
dislike having large groups at times. Places like I-hop and Denny's are ok. I'd suggest checking out the smaller local restaurants. Coming from someone that lives in a small
town. Just checking you can find a few that serve breakfast and they usually have a wide variety of things on the menu. Also, if your doing the week/month get together? You can develop a relationship with the owners and even get discounts on your large party. Perhaps even get special food that is not normally served. I'm a regular at one place in my town and when we come in the people are happy friendly and always love to have us there.

I can't really add to the food suggestions so I'll just leave one of my favorite cereal commercials from my childhood. Yes, I still sing this song in my head whenever I hear the word "freaky".

I'll have to look into the casserole idea. Crepes would never work with their pans(or mine, for that matter). And, of course, we could always make the rancheros.

I'm not, the folks are. For me, this is my final meal of the day, so I could probably eat anything.

The only soup I've ever gotten them to consider for breakfast is posole, and I really don't like how long it takes to cook it.


From my breakfast casserole search that I started before completing this post:
This sounds like bread pudding to me.
This sounds awesome, but would be instantly vetoed by my dad, who hates bananas.
I think I can sell them on this one.
This one might also be pretty great.

Diced up hasbrowns, mixed with some sauteed onions/mushrooms/tomotaoes with diced up ham and sausage covered with 2 bacon strips and 2 eggs, however you like them. Toss in some newfie steak if you're really hungry.

My mother-in-law makes an egg bake. I suppose it could be called a casserole. It starts with spreading those pillsbury crescents that pop out of a cardboard can along the bottom of a cake pan. Then theres a layer of grounnd sausage and then scrambled eggs, then cheese and cream of mushroom soup and i think more egg mixture poured over it and baked.

It's not my cup of tea but my kids really liked it.

I liked the crepe suggestion - filled with nutella and bananas and sprinkled with some cinnamon and nutmeg. Smiley: drool

(did you know you can catch a buzz from nutmeg?)

Nah, that part wasn't too bad. Disposable pans are your friend. Oh, and looking through my old pics, I remember that we made a couple adjustments, turning it into a Bacon Explosion Wellington. It was one of the recipe ingredients, however, that gave me the heartburn.
