Hmm, no one answered yet? I will. I take it you're looking for suggestions for menu ideas? How about a yummy fruit salad, Quiches (eggs, spinache cheese or many other options), whole-grain bagels and cream cheese, if you want to have something sweet there how about an apple crisp? I love those! Muffins are also a good thing for breakfast. Have fun! If you need actual recipes I do have a great apple crisp one and a terrific bran muffin recipe.

Here's what I always bring: (It has no name because I made it up )

Take some salsa (usually I make this myself: tomatoes, cilantro, onions, bit of garlic, and a tiny bit of jalepeno, because I'm a wimp), and spread it in a layer across a cassarole dish.

Make six or so little divets in the salsa and crack an egg in each of them.

Grate cheese and add cilantro, if you want.

Pop in a 350 degee oven for 20 minutes or so until the eggs are set and the cheese is melted.

Serve with chips or tortillas and sour cream.

I have made lots of variations on this, too. If we have leftover broccoli from dinner, sometimes I put that and some ham or whatever else on the bottom of the dish instead of salsa.

Oh, and jrose_lee, I'd love that bran muffin recipe if you don't mind.

I love the website www.bbonline.com for breakfast recipes.

I'm a big fan of overnight french toast casserole type dishes. They feed a lot of people and all of the prep is done in advance. I do an apple spice one that I got from that website, but the last I checked , that recipe wasn't up anymore. There are tons of similar recipes on ther though.

Have fun!

Breakfast casserole- Tear up a loaf of bread into a cake pan. Throw in whatever you'd eat in an omelet (diced onion, green peppers, mushrooms, any kind of meat, etc.) Top with 8 ounces of shredded cheese. Mix a dozen eggs and 2 cups of milk together and pour over the whole thing. (This can be done the night before and refrigerated.) Pop into the oven at 350 for about 30 minutes-1 hour (test the center with a knife, if it's clean it's done).

Fruit kabobs

Fruit pizzas-prepared pizza crust (this can be homemade, just baked FIRST). Spread cream cheese on it, then top with fruit (strawberries, bluberries, kiwi, etc.)
