I would get a smoked ham. The last one I ordered was from North Country Smokehouse in NH (www.ncsmokehouse.com).
I usually go back & forth between N. Country & Harrington's out of Vermont, but I seem to like the smoke flavor from N. Country a little better.
A ham, skillet potatoes, eggs, sausage & some bloody marys and I dont think you will have anyone who isnt pleased.

A french toast souffle is always nice. Actually, I can use a recipe for that as well, if anyone has a good one. It's quite easy and perfect for a crowd, if I recall!

Well I'm sure they are Harley riders?
With that in mind I'd go with a breakfast pizza. Very easy to make up in advance and choice of toppings are endless.
To keep it simple for you use tubes of cressent rolls for the dough.
Fresh fruit Bowl useing a hollowed out watermellon for presentation.
You can purchase large frozen bags of Doles mixed fresh fruit at costco.
Cheap and easy lace it with some Grand Manaire for a twist.
If you want to go a little upscale, eggs benidict. They can be prepared in advance, holindaise sauce can be done in advance also, serve them with a hash brown casserole. Chow Jim

This is really good and will feed a lot of people:

BREAKFAST CASSEROLE

2 lb. bag hash browns, either shredded or southern style, thawed
¼ c. butter or margarine, melted
1 lb. pork sausage
1 medium onion, chopped
3 c. shredded cheddar cheese or monterey jack cheese
12 eggs, beaten
2 c. milk
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. dry mustard

In a greased 9x13 baking dish evenly spread the potatoes and drizzle with the melted butter. Brown the sausage with the onion and drain well. Spread evenly over the potatoes. Sprinkle with the shredded cheese. In a mixing bowl combine the eggs, milk, salt and dry mustard. Pour evenly over potato mixture. Refrigerate overnight or you may bake it immediately at 350 degrees for about 50 minutes. Cover with foil if browning too quickly. (Add about 10 minutes if refrigerated.

If the hash browns are pretty frosty, let them drain before putting them in the pan.

Look at the "Orange Yogurt" recipe by Ina Garten on the Food Network board. I've made it along with her "Homemade Granola" recipe, they are delicious... if your crowd likes yogurt and granola.

Breakfast casseroles are great. Also, breakfast quiche -- you can make 2 or 3 different types ahead of time, then reheat that morning. Use different cheeses (or no cheese), different meats and vegetables in each quiche for a variety. Add fruit salad, juices, coffee, maybe some sweet rolls.

Every year I am asked to do a breakfast buffet for about 30-40 people. One of the the items that got rave reviews were biscuits and homemade sausage gravy. I had made all the gravy the night before and the morning of event I just put it in my crock pot to keep warm, adding a little milk if got too thick. I usually also have out some homemade muffins, fruit salad, croissants (pretty cheap from Sam's), along with the usual breakfast beverages. Whatever you make I wish you luck. I'm sure it will come out great!!! Have fun!!

Hi Ann, there you go.

Add to that biscuits in the oven, homefries and bacon, along with beverages and I'll guarantee no complaints. Unless you run out of food that is. Hey, these are Harley Riders

I've always had goodluck with these:

Hey, just found this recipe from an old work buddy:




Ziploc Omelet

This works great!!! Good for when all your family is together. The best part is no one has to wait for their special omelet and no frying!

Have guests write their name on a quart-sized Ziploc Freezer bag with permanent marker.

Crack 2 eggs (large or extra large) into the bag (not more than 2) shake to combine them.

Put out a variety of ingredients such as: cheeses, ham, onion, green pepper, mushroom, tomato, hash browns, salsa, etc

Each guest adds prepared ingredients of their choice to their bag & shake. Make sure to get the air out of the bag and zip it up.

Place the bags into rolling, boiling water for exactly 13 minutes. You can usually cook 6-8 omelets in a large pot. For more, make another pot of boiling water.

Open the bags and the omelet will roll out easily. Be prepared for everyone to be amazed.

Imagine having these ready the night before, and putting the bag in boiling water while you get ready. And in 13 minutes, you get a nice omelet for a quick breakfast!

Try this, it really works! Nice to serve with fresh fruit and coffee cake; everyone gets involved in the process and a great conversation piece.

Remember to have a couple of different choices. Just as you watch carbs, some have food allergies or other kinds of food problems. I personally can't eat gluten, so that eleminates anything with bread or flour.

If there is a variety (Egg dish, meat, fruit) there should be something for everybody.

RE: Breakfast for a crowd 2008/08/15 22:23:09
Ok Ann, these are awesome!!

Frenchish Toastish

* 12 slices of Wonder Bread or the squeezably soft equivalent. Sliced Italian or French bread is even better. Can be stale, but doesn't have to be.
* 12 eggs
* 2 tbsp. cream or half and half
* 1/2 tsp. salt
* 1 tsp. vanilla
* 1/2 tsp. nutmeg (or not)
* margarine (can be low-fat) or softened butter
* PAM or the equivalent cooking spray, (or however you like to grease pans, haha)


Grease a 9" x 13" Pyrex casserole. Preheat oven to 350F. Or, you can skip the preheating if you plan to let this sit in the fridge overnight.

* Beat eggs, cream, vanilla, nutmeg and salt together. Lightly spread each of the 12 slices of bread on both sides with margarine. Dip in the egg mixture to coat and kinda sorta sink in. Arrange in two lengthwise rows in pan, overlapping slices. Pour any remaining egg over all. If you are doing the overnight thing, stop here, cover with foil or plastic wrap and put in the fridge overnight (longer than overnight NOT recommended). Bake at 350F for 35 minutes if you do it right away or around 45 minutes if you had it in the fridge overnight. Serve with maple syrup, melted butter, whatever you like with french toast.

Now, here's the twin of this recipe -- it involves ham and cheese but is essentially the same:

Lazy Monte Cristos

* 24 slices of Wonder Bread or the squeezably soft equivalent. Sliced Italian or French bread is even better. Can be stale, but doesn't have to be.
* 12 eggs
* 2 tbsp. cream or half and half
* 1/2 tsp. salt
* 12 slices ham or turkey, or a lump of shaved ham or turkey for each sandwich, or 26 slices of cooked bacon, vegetarian or real-thing
* 12 slices of American cheese, Swiss cheese, Provolone, or whatever cheese you like
* Fines herbes (optional -- a few of you will know what I mean; for those of you who don't, go with dried parsley, or whatever you like.)
* margarine (can be low-fat) or softened butter
* PAM or the equivalent cooking spray, (or however you like to grease pans, haha)


Grease a 9" x 13" Pyrex casserole. Preheat oven to 350F. Or, you can skip the preheating if you plan to let this sit in the fridge overnight. Beat eggs, cream, and salt together. Lightly spread one side of each of the 24 slices of bread with margarine. Slap meat and cheese between 2 slices for each sandwich, unbuttered sides facing in. Arrange sandwiches in two lengthwise rows in pan, overlapping slices. Pour egg mixture over all. (Do this slowly, because with the margarine on the bread, the egg won't sink in right away, and it WILL go oozing merrily onto your clean countertop)

If you are doing the overnight thing, stop here, cover with foil or plastic wrap and put in the fridge overnight (longer than overnight NOT recommended). Sprinkle with fines herbes, parsley or whatever. Bake at 350F for 35 minutes if you do it right away or around 45 minutes if you had it in the fridge overnight. This is actually good with a side of maple syrup, also goes well with a simple green salad and/or fresh fruit salad.

^^Also optional to spread ranch dressing on the sides of the bread that don't have margarine. Mmmm.

RE: Breakfast for a crowd 2008/08/16 10:12:42


I've been trying to think about this, and many of these ideas are great. 10 people is a no brainer for me, yet I cannot give one real good suggestion.
I think that most Harley riders would rather eat a bowl of Fruit Loops before eating quiche, but a breakfast frittata would fit the bill.

I am a hash fan. A garbage plate casserole (hoppel poppel)could be easy too.
Bisquits and gravy is a no brainer. I suggest using the frozen Pillsbury biscuits, they are pretty good.
French toast casserole is always great. Two thoughts here, first make it extra eggy much like a custard bread pudding. Also if your supermarket has day old baked goods at half price, get some Danish with assorted flavors.

The truth is that it is best to keep it simple and not make as much as you think. You can only put so much food on a plate. If you have all your things lined up, then -maybe- you could cook up some scrambled eggs.

I like my bread for french toast a little stale, that way it soaks up the batter better.

I also let my soaked bread rest for a while in the fridge, then the french toast takes on an almost bread pudding consistency. YUMMERS

Before you do the Ziploc Omelet google those words and you will find
that there is a question about their toxicity. Ziploc states their
bags were not meant to be boiled.

Over the years I have had more brunch parties than dinner parties
because I find them easier and more fun. No liquor or wine but
lots and lots of coffee make people more peppy. I don't use any prepared
items---I am the cook and I do it all from scratch---you can not show
off if you open bags of this and packages of that---your guests can do
that themselves at home. When they leave you want them talking about
your cooking prowess, not where to buy that pre-mixed stuff.

My mother, the chef, cooked all the breakfasts for clubs and groups in
our town---she was noted for them. I have copied her and improvised
as the years went by.

First have tons of coffee------almost all people love coffee in the AM
and have it ready when they show up. No waiting.

Make a big fruit salad with the fresh stuff in the market, whatever the
season----cut it up and put a little orange juice over it and a little
white wine for a kicker. Put that in the fridge to ferment about an hour
before the mob arrives. When they do---let them sit and help themselves
to coffee and the big bowl(nice glass one)of fruit. That gets the ball
rolling and everyone talking.

After the fruit is in the fridge I cook up bacon and sausages and put
them in the oven on very low heat. I put them on a cookie sheet with
paper towels under them to absorb the greese.

Then I make a big skillet of Corn Bread and put that in the oven to
keep warm too. I had that mixed up and ready to go from the night before.
When the mob arrives the house smells of fresh brewed coffee and corn
bread---you can't beat that with a stick.

Then I break the eggs for the omelets. The old French adage "You can't
make an omelet without breaking the eggs" is absolutely true. I figure
3 eggs per person. Mix them with a little water, salt and pepper and a
few dashs of tabasco. They are set aside and are ready to be ladeled out.

When I designed my kitchen I put the cooktop on an island facing the
dining table so that I never turn my back to my guests and I can talk
with them. I can also have them watch what I am doing and be amazed.

I have cut up and put into seperate dishes mushrooms, cheddar cheese, the
ingredients for spanish omelets and western omelets. Each guest takes a
pick and I have 3 hot omelet pans ready for the "piece de resistance".

The omelets only take a few seconds to cook and serve. Oh, I forget to
mention the homefries which I had made earlier and had warming in the oven.
So now the sausages, the bacon, the spuds, and the omelets (or if someone
prefers, the scrambled eggs) are on the table with the coffee and the corn
bread and everyone is happy and digging in---including me.

After that there is a big coffee cake I made the night before, and everyone
can sit around over more coffee and pat their fat bellies and shower me
with praise. It all takes planning and a little bit of time and effort, but
feeding 6/12 really works out easily. No booze, beer or wine---cheap party.

From the Ziploc website:

"In 2002, we became aware of an email that was being widely circulated, which warned consumers about the alleged dangers of using plastics in the microwave. This email claimed that the combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body, thereby increasing the risk of producing cancerous cells. We researched these claims and it is clear that the information is misleading, and unnecessarily alarms consumers.

Saran™ and Ziploc® products are 100% dioxin free. You also should be aware that dioxins can be formed only when chlorine is combined with extremely high temperatures, such as 1,500°F, which even the most powerful consumer microwave ovens are unable to produce."


^^Boiling water is only around 212°F. Certainly your omelets you've described will taste better (crispy browned edges) & look prettier (ziploc omelets are basically a log) but in the interest of time, they work nicely. We had them at Girl Scout sleepovers a few times, and for picky eaters you really can't beat this with a stick.

in a word: OMELETTES!

can be made superfast and filled with everything (I mean EVERTHING)under the sun to order.

Home fries are super easy to make and will hold on the line for quite awhile. Seasoning is very important here.

Bacon and sausage links will hold really well in steam pan too.

I''ve used this method but I put cake cooling racks in a cookie sheet, lay the bacon and stick in the oven. The Racks keep the bacon out of the grease and make for a less fatty piece of bacon. I use the same method for Sausage Patties and Sausage Breakfast Links.

I FOUND THE SECRET TO COOKING OMLETS IN A BAG!![/
Glad Bags makes a food safe, microwavable cooking bag called 'Simply Cooking' that also works in a pot of water!!! It has a flat, pleated bottom that gives a real omlet shape to the egg mixture. I cooked it in a pot of water for 13 minutes as suggested by another poster, but that was a little too long for a single 3 egg omlet with bacon. Check out www.Glad.com/simplycooking The bags are in the ziploc section of your supermarket.

I know it's a regional thing, but the choice is clear here. Whenever we have folks for breakfast, be it 10 or 30, the answer is - breakfast tacos. After an all-nighter around the campfire playing and singing (and imbibing), you need the solid refill you get from plain Tex-Mex and Mexican dishes.

A mainstay of the morning in South Texas, breakfast tacos are wildly popular and comsumed eagerly by all. At our place you'll find our spread to regularly include most of the following: scrambled eggs, sausage and eggs, chorizo and eggs, bacon, fried potatoes, flour tortillas, shredded cheese, refried beans, various salsas and hot sauces, ice cold milk and coffee.

Sometimes, we'll toss in sausage ranchera (delicious!), barbacoa (with the required corn tortillas and lime wedges), carne guisada, or another little treat. No one leaves our place hungry unless by a committed personal choice. It's a damned good thing I'm an early riser!
