Im catering a breakfast at the end of the month for approx 50 guys (and probably more accurate 50 HUNGRY guys). Im doing it more as a favor/good deed at my church so I dont believe there is any financial incentive for doing this... whatever, no biggie to me. I'm off that weekend anyways.
I'm planning on doing an "egg bake" that is always a hit among family and friends. Eggs, sausage, cheese.
I'm also going to do home fries w/onions & bell pepper
and of course there will be bacon on the side
and i am thinking a fruit salad or fruit tray (this is up in the air right now)
I wanted to do a baked french toast- but i dont have a good recipe i dont think. I mean, the recipe i have, i've never made. I am going to try it out on the fam this weekend, but i was wondering if anyone out there has used it or has another recipe they recommend? The one i was give by another local chef is by Paula Deen. He said he did for a new years day brunch at his house for family and friends. Another foodie friend gave me a recipe that is very "french toast bread pudding" like. I am thinking the Paula Deen recipe is also this way. Any thoughts??
another alternative i thought of would be to do a "waffle bar"... waffles w/all the essential toppings... cherry pie filling, cut strawberries, chocolate sauce, whipped cream, maple syrup. powdered sugar.
I have toyed with the idea of doing Apple Pie Oatmean Brulee (a la Bobby Flay in Brunch at Bobby's) but I have yet to try this recipe out and just dont know when I'll have a chance to do so, and I'm surely not doing it for the first time and serving to these guys.
my obsticles are: i am preparing the food in an offsite commerical kitchen, taking it to church and serving it...where there is no commerical kitchen. They have a regular home electric range and a microwave on site. So they food has to be "held" probably 30min-1hr
