Breakfast ideas

We'll be visiting friends for the weekend and I'll be preparing several meals while there. What i need are some suggestions for a hearty and maybe "make ahead" breakfast dish. Any suggestions?

      Hearty muffins. I have seen some neato breakfast casseroles that are make ahead. Also breakfast burritos are really good. Totally second the lox and bagels and fruit salad.


    2. I third the lox and bagels (a variety). Serve with cream cheese, capers, sliced red onions, chives, and sliced tomatoes. The presentation is beautiful, and everyone has fun putting it all together the way they like.

        Oh man...definitely. I'd add hard cooked eggs to the list of items to put out with it. (And, because I know mojo will get it....if you could get Bodo's'd be in heaven.)

        1. Savory muffins are easy, tasty and different:

          Saute 1/2 diced onion, 1/2 diced green pepper, add some diced ham
          Two cups of flour, two tbl baking powder, a couple pinches of salt and pepper... in a separate bowl, cream two eggs, 1/2 cup of butter, add 1 cup milk or buttermilk. Add dry to wet, add 1/2 cup shredded cheddar (optional), and the sauteed veggies and ham. spoon into six lg or 10 med muffin tins, bake for about 20 min at 350. serve warm with butter.
