I really need to think of doing family style, I always think it's such a nice way to eat but only when everyone knows each other, thanks for the reminder
PS Burnt the caramel for the Caramel Apple Baked French Toast as I was writing the initial post and OOPS no apples ..

I do the egg bake in a 9x13 glass pan if I have 6 people. I use the blue glass pan because it looks nice enough to serve from. I cut it into 12 pieces, insert 2 small spatulas for serving, and tell the guests these are not suggested serving sizes, it is cut this way for ease of serving. Each one has their own loaf of bread of course - I tuck a steak knife under the bread plate and tell them as I serve the loaves, "We have been told you can be trusted with sharp implements so there is a steak knife under your bread plate to cut your bread."
Serving family style there is less waste than plated and my tiny eaters can take just a smidge without feeling they are offending me and the BIG eaters and dig in without feeling like oinkers. I used to do individual fruit dishes but I was throwing away and awful lot of fruit that way. Now they can take the fruit they like and leave the rest - some empty the bowl and some never (or barely) touch it.

Tuscan scrambled eggs w/ sausage & bacon-cheddar croissants. Fruit medley with yogurt and granola. 10 in the house. Number for breakfast always a gamble on Sunday. Forgot to say that we serve on an open plan- whenever you sit down between 8-9:30.
I have some rhubarb frozen, maybe another time!
Edited to say I just got a Facebook request for breakfast from guests in the house, so I'll have to rummage around.

ok so when you offer a choice of 2 quiches do you actually prebake 6 portions of ham and 6 portions of salmon? or do you ask ahead.? Yum sounds delicious. I love cucumbers and tomatoes for breakfast but its a very Greek / Israeli thing that you don't see too often in the US

Yes I do ask them when they check in so I do know ahead which kind they prefer. Quiche is the only breakfast item I make that I freeze so I thaw out accordingly and pop it in the oven in the morning before they come down.

Copperhead can you post your recipe for swamp monster pie? You must live in the deep south. Biscuits and gravy is never served here in Canada but when I do go to the U.S. I always order the sausage and gravy.......every so good (and ever so bad for you).

I've been able to pass off a northern version of sausage gravy by including mushrooms as well as sausage, and using English muffins instead of biscuits. I lived in the south long enough to gain an appreciation that I like to share with my northern guests! I also sometimes sneak in some cheese grits. I call it polenta if they're skeptical (although it's not polenta, it appeals to the need to name your catch of the day)

No breakfasts todau. Have to go make a double batch of Gillum House rolls. Today they become their alternate ego. When our church does a funeral lunch I make the rolls (they have even been asked by one of the men from the funeral home - will you have the rolls?).
"Mama's" husband died Wednesday night. The funeral is today. I am making a double bath because he was involved in just about every kind of Masons, Shriners, Scottish Rite...... and was so respected he not only held the highest offices, but was involved internationally.. He leaves a very large empty hole for many besides "Mama". Better now - he was in and out of ICU for over 5 weeks.

K, sorry to hear he passed, but thankful he is now out of pain and suffering.
