best recipe for breakfast work meeting treats

smile81 Feb 25, 2010 01:15 PM

its my responsibility to bring the food for our friday morning meeting tomorrow. usually people bring purchased items such as bagels, packaged scones, etc. I really want to wow them with amazing tasting homemade treats. unfortunately I do not have time to test out recipes so I"m looking for advice on your tried and true breakfast baked goods or savory foods

      granted i usually make it for sheep dog trials rather than an office meeting, but a tray of biscuits and a cooler jug or crockpot of sausage gravy gets raves.

      I love ina gartens recipe for sour cream coffee cake http://www.barefootcontessa.com/recip... just look through the recipes.i think its the 4th one.

      Also homemade biscotti can't be beat, especially in the morning with a cup of tea or coffee, http://www.lacucinaitalianamagazine.c...

      And don't forget you could never go wrong by bringing in some fruit, like berries.
      Best of Luck!

        if you want to make muffins, fellow CHers *rave* about this recipe from Fine Cooking magazine for blueberry muffins:

        and there are some other great muffin ideas & recipes in the same thread.

          I made the orange muffins in that thread today with a Minneola tangelo - very good, my kind of muffin texture (between a biscuit and a cupcake). Happy to have seen the reference to the recipe!

          I always keep some Rhodes frozen dough balls (usually for biscuits) on hand. The night before I go to bed, I grease a loaf pan or funnel pan, then roll the frozen balls in butter and then cinnamon, cover with plastic wrap. Place the pan(s) in oven and let rise overnight. When you get up in the morning, preheat the oven and then pop them in while showering, etc. Once done, drizzle with a little powered sugar/water mixture and viola - instant cinnamon rolls. (Be sure to supply napkins).

            too late now, but i would have recommended a strata or two, as they're easy to prep the night before and bake off in the morn. layer bread with cooked onions, mushrooms, spinach, tomatoes, etc., bread, cheese, cover with milk/egg/salt/pepper custard and soak, then bake.

            or like JEN10 said, frittata varietals or quiche.

            so what did you make?
