Breakfast Ideas for a Crowd

Posted by

Who wants to play short-order cook when you have a house filled with kids, in-laws, cousins, and crazy uncles for the holidays? This year, instead of frying eggs and flipping pancakes, make it easy on yourself with these five crowd-pleasing recipes so breakfast will be one less thing to worry about.

If your crowd loves the classics, try these Bacon, Egg and Toast Cups. Instead of wilting over a greasy stove top, you can pull a cute, cup-sized breakfast right out of the oven.

If your crowd loves eggs, a frittata is like an omelet in the shape of a cake, and perfect for feeding a large group of people. This Vegetable Frittata can be served at room temperature, which makes it perfect for feeding grandparents who get up at 4:30 in the morning and sleepyheads who stumble into the kitchen hours later.

If your crowd needs some holiday cheer STAT, these brown-sugar and pecan sticky buns are garuranteed to fix any grumbles or bickering. And since they're made using pizza-dough, you can put smiles on your guests' faces in no time.

If your crowd is seriously hungry, or disproportionately made up of teenage boys, try this hearty Sausage and Swiss Chard Strata. Filled with cheese, meat, bread and earthy chard, a piece of this breakfast casserole will keep them satisfied at least until lunch time.

If your crowd likes to eat healthy, this batch of Blueberry-Almond Granola can be paired with protein-packed Greek Yogurt or eaten like cereal with milk. Best of all it, only takes 25 minutes to make enough for eight.
