Maybe just add some fruit, other than that it sounds yummy!

I would offer toast/biscuits at least… but I’m also crazy for biscuits and gravy or chipped beef, so I’d probably include that as well. πŸ™‚

those teeny fruit pastries and mini croissants are nice too, just for people who might want something lighter, but I don’t think they’re necessary.

Some additional ideas:

Muffins, danishes, bagles/lox/spread, cheese, yogurt/granola, eggs benedict, souffle, or pancakes

You just described my perfect breakfast — but I hate bagels/bread.  Maybe add some bagels/english muffins/toast to the mix?  Muffins are also always a good addition!

I just realized that we’re date twins! Yay!

Also, are you 100% breakfast or could this fall more in brunch? Because having a green salad in addition to the fruit might be nice, too, if that’s the case.

quiche would be nice, you can make minis or pie sized theres a lot you can do with them… i would also do a fruit compote spread for toast and if you do biscuits, etc. also there is a AWESOMEEEE recipe i have for birds nest.. my Fiance is a chef and we make these when we have compnay sleep over- they are soo easy and fancy looking!! Plus if you use eggbeaters, turkey bacon and low at cheese its also very healthly

here is the recipe based on 6 servings, 

you need 1 pint egg beaters ( your choice, you can spice it up )

 1 pound of bacon can use turkey

  2 tablespoons of shredded cheese ( any flavor but chedder usually works best)

fry bacon in pan 2 mins each side, DO NOT let them get crispy.  grease a cupcake tin,,line in a circle each cupcake with 2 pieces of bacon, so the ends meet….pour in about 1/4 cup of egg beaters…pour in cheese, then bake for about 18- 20 mins. remove and sprinkle with fresh parsely…these lil nests are super delicious~!!!

here is a pic :

@butterfli_beauty:  It does seem a little incomplete to be honest. I think it would be better if you added pancakes or waffles. Also, you need a none pork meat option. What’s the main dish? These all seem like side items. What about a breakfast casserole?

I would add some bread product (examples:pastries, muffins, toast, bagels, croissants etc) for those carb obssesed like me! Everything sounds delicious.

@shalynnmarie:  This looks yummy! We don’t eat grains, and this would be a great substitute for mini quiches (and it looks like you could change things up and add veggies, try different cheese, etc). Thanks for the idea πŸ™‚

hmmm eggs benedict πŸ™‚ those are my favorite !

if you have kids present, adding cereal might be nice. Its always nice to have a light option πŸ™‚

Yogurt and muffins are a nice classic too.

That being said, I would definitely be fine with the options that you already have ! I want cinnamon roll french toast now ! πŸ˜›

@les105:  thanks! you can add sooo many diff ideas with veggies, egg beaters, herbs and cheeses! Its great for us because my father doesnt eat pork so the turkey bacon works great for us, and the low fat ideas are awesome for this dieting bee!

..this lil dish impressed my Future Mother-In-Law when she came to stay with us!
