When we do a buffet (weddings, group bookings) we have basically bread on the menu...nothing that requires hot holding like eggs or meat. It's worked so far.

I consider a continental to be something like fruit juice, or a piece of fruit and a piece of pastry ie: muffin or bagel, maybe cereal and milk and coffee or tea. That is it really. Whatever you get at Motel 6:-(

That's about it...bagels & cream cheese (2-3 kinds), muffins, whole fruit, 'artisan' bread for toast, yogurt, cereal, juice, coffee, tea. We lay it out really nicely and provide a toaster for the bagels and bread.

Here's a good one:

What does "Continental Breakfast" mean?
A.gif
It means you're hungry by 10:30.

A Continental breakfast consists of croissants, rolls, or bread, perhaps some butter, jam, and/or marmalade, and coffee, tea, or, if you make enough of a fuss, hot chocolate.

We just stayed at an Inn with an excellent continental breakfast - they are not allowed by law (no commercial kitchen) to cook anything stovetop, although they skirt the issue by baking entrees only on weekends. On the buffet this a.m. - organic yogurt, organic instant oatmeal, hard-boiled eggs, sliced fresh fruit (cantalope, honeydew, pineapple, kiwi), two kinds of bread for toasting, peanut butter & jelly, an apple streusel coffee cake, three kinds of cold cereal including homemade granola, milk, oj, cranberry juice, coffee, tea. I was not hungry until lunchtime.

"organic" instant oatmeal? I did not know that was available. Maybe I can find it in our store here now that we are seeing more organic foods.
I did just see hard boiled eggs without shells in a re-sealable bag in the dairy section.

The oatmel was Kirkland, so from Costco. The hard-boiled eggs were in the shell, actually - they were brown eggs. I have never tried the store-bought hard-boiled eggs but always assumed they would not be great

They call it a 'bountiful continental breakfast'. Still a continental to them. I think it is what you do for a continental if you are a Select Registry B&B and you are only legally allowed to offer a continental.
