Looking for egg recipes that contain no dairy. Guests have been thru our entire oeuvre of breakfast dishes. 

Also looking for sweet dishes with no dairy.

 Cannot use nut milk, either. So, no cheese, no cream, no milk, no nuts. There are too many guests in the group to make fried eggs.

 Thanks!

Mort, everytime I read these sort of posts it makes me happy that we don't serve breakfast, I expect I'd fail. Get to thinking of a Facebook cartoon that says "We have two breakfast choices, take it or leave it". Got to be tough when folks can't or won't tell you what they eat at home, wonder if their hoping that you will force them to eat something the doctor says don't eat, but they really want to eat, then it's your fault that they didn't follow the diet.

Jim - I’m out of practice! I was sick for the fall and Christmas season, then we closed for vacation. I haven’t really dealt with this for 4 months.

Hope I'm reading that correctly, that you're feeling better now? I did notice I was seeing your Facebook posts again recently.

 my problem is it’s a group. They will all be sitting together, served together, etc. 

i know I need to stop worrying and just let it happen.

Degree of difficulty just added: another room contacted us today to let us know they do not eat any fatty foods, eggs, or carbs. These are not issues they had when they made the reservation. Apparently they just looked at the website and saw the menus and decided to let us know they cannot eat any of those things.

I would like to cry.

Non-fat plain yogourt. Israeli breakfast salad. Fruit. Ask what else they eat.

 No yogurt, no eggs, no carbs, no fat. That’s one room.

 Two other rooms are no dairy, but please load us up with bacon.

I did ask what they eat but it’s ‘too hard to explain.’

 They decided to bring their own food. Now we’re working on explaining there is not a separate kitchen they can use. At this point, I have no idea how they travel or why they travel. I guess they can have salad for lunch and dinner.

i think fruit is ok, but only plain fruit. Which, if I don’t want to make two completely different breakfasts means everyone gets plain fruit. Which I can’t force on everyone else. It’s just not fair.

Make the Israeli salad, takes about 10 minutes. Serve family style, so others can have it, but serve it to them first. Put fruit basket on table... don't prepare it. Clementines are in season.

The bacon people are welcome to ask for bacon, doesn't make it an imperative on you. Serve a real spanish omelet... or make it in the oven. Fried onions, slices of potato and eggs, baked like your egg pie. Goes well with the Israeli salad, if they want to freshen it up. If you feel like it, bake some bacon. Done! No dairy, everyone gets from the basic food groups and it's over with.

It’s three days. I might try the baked oatmeal the first day. We’ll make the vegan version so no eggs and no dairy. If they can eat that they can have it for the next 2 days, the others in the group will get something else.

 The salad sounds good, too.

Speaking of what you really can’t stand .... 

my mother and her sister took turns making breakfast for my grandparents. One day oatmeal, next day cream of wheat. For a year! Finally, one day, they were talking and my mother said she couldn’t stand the smell of the oatmeal she had to make for their elderly parents. Her sister said ‘oatmeal?! I can’t stand the smell of cream of wheat that I make for them!’ Haha they made the switch and were happy for about two weeks until my grandmother said she’d rather have Rice Krispies

I don't like instant oats, I like steel cut. Takes about 5 minutes in the microwave, if you know how to do it.

Other ideas... egg cups with bacon. Put the bacon around muffin tins, slice of potato at the bottom and crack eggs and bake about 10 to 12 minutes. Sprinkle some red pepper diced and some parsley. Ever tried shakshouka?

Shakshouka just does not look good to me. The tomato and egg combo just doesn’t work for me.

You are serving it, not eating it. I figured that it would never fly when I first served it... and it surprised me how many people love it.

i have to look at it while I serve it. Eww. Sorry, there are combos I cannot wrap my head around. Lots of guests like all kinds of things I won’t put on the menu because I can’t stand them - green peppers, cilantro - to name but two.

Our neighbour was this way. We had to introduce her to the breakfast parfait. She would only buy plain yogurt, because that was what she ate.

I’m allowed to dislike certain foods or food combos. It doesn’t make me a bad person. I don’t have to change. And I don’t have to serve those foods or combos. I serve coffee. I can’t tolerate the smell of it brewing or on someone’s breath. That’s as far as I’m going! Eye-wink

What do they say the eat for breakfast? 

not that I would go nuts (haha) trying time accommodate by buying things you will never use. You know that already.

But we’ve all been down that road when 1/2 of the no pork group eats regular old bacon because they’re ‘on vacation’

happened to me when I had 1/2+ house no bacon and cooked a little for two rooms and the no bacon people were asking for it

They eat everything but dairy. They’ve been thru our whole repertoire, being 10 year veterans of the place. I’m looking for something new. Something they haven’t had.

i have to check last year’s menus. They may have had the polenta. It’s not as good without a pound of cheese!

Agreed! blush A friend served a non dairy strata with some kind of cheese substitute ... dairy free. It had a very odd taste and she was pretty unhappy with it. I thought, why bother making strata without cheese? But that is me.

Are they okay with oat milk? It's really big here, because oats are local and unlike nuts aren't imported. How about polenta, you can even make it in a rice cooker... 4 to 1 ratio of water to corn meal. You can fry the polenta, put it in the oven with eggs on top and back some eggs sunny side up on it. Potato hash also works. A real spanish omelet.... with or without onions. Slices of potato, eggs and baked. https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/real-spanish-omelette

I love steel cut oatmeal, add in berries, some sugar.

I don’t think they’ve had the polenta and mushrooms! Good idea.

 No idea about oat milk, just no dairy. 

Too many for omelets, it’s a group.

A spanish omelet isn't a personal omelet. It's like you "egg pie". But you usually bake it in a frying pan in the oven. The ingredients are simple, potatoes and eggs. You can add fried onions, if you want. Some salt and pepper. You fry the bottom to seal it in the pan and then put in the oven to bake. Served like pie slices. It can even be served cold, though I prefer it hot. And I like to serve it with a little warm salsa or a diced vegetable salad.

Sweet breakfast ... I love oatmeal, I admit it. with raisins and walnuts. Or a really good granola. No need for milk with it, I like it as is. Can you do a pancake or waffle without dairy? I am pretty sure Annie's pancake and waffle mix (yes, shhhh, mix) tastes really good and has no dairy.

Maybe we can do the baked oatmeal and leave out the nuts.

 We make that vegan, so no milk.

 We have never made homemade batter, it’s always a mix! From the grocery store, not even a fancy one.

Good idea. I’ve done those using ham as the basket.

How about egg baskets ... that you make in muffin tins? The lining is a (dairy free) piece of bread. Drop in a tiny bit of oil to coat the tin. Then the piece of bread, then egg.  You can add some cooked bacon or ham strips. Bake 350 about 20 minutes. You can beat the egg or just drop it in as is. This was originally from the Colonel Prescott Inn in New Hampshire .... long ago, maybe 2007, that the former owners shared the recipe. They added cheese, but of course you won't for dairy free. Probably lots of recipes similar online
