    Baked Pumpkin-Cinnamon Donuts

    Make your morning meeting something to remember with these baked pumpkin cinnamon donuts. One of the great things about these donuts is they are baked, not fried. They are also fast and easy to make. You will need a donut pan, canned pumpkin puree, eggs, vegetable oil, sugar, cinnamon, salt, flour, and baking powder. To make, simply toss the eggs, vegetable oil, sugar, pumpkin puree, cinnamon, salt, and baking powder into a mixing bowl and mix well. Then add flour and stir until smooth. Fill the donut pans ¾ of the way full and bake on 350 F for 15-18 minutes. Let cool and serve.

    French Toast Egg in a Hole

    Everyone knows the classic children’s breakfast, eggs in a hole. This rendition makes this dish a little bit more exciting by using French toast instead of regular bread. The best part is this dish is simple and quick to make. It only takes about 5 minutes to prep and 5 minutes to cook, so it’s great for serving in meetings and event venues. First, whisk together 1 large egg and milk. If you want, replace milk with flavored coffee creamer such as vanilla caramel to give this dish even more flavor. Dunk the bread into the egg and milk mixture and coat on both sides. Place on hot griddle, cut out the center and remove. Add egg into hole and cook until golden brown. Flip and finish cooking. Serve with syrup and toppings of your choice.

    Breakfast Biscuit Bakes

    This dish is like taking a traditional American breakfast and cramming it all into a biscuit! To make, first preheat your oven to 350 F. Get a can of big flaky biscuits (the ones that come in the refrigerated section of the grocery store) and let them stand at room temperature for a few minutes. Cut the biscuits in half and press them into the bottom of a greased muffin pan, making sure to press the biscuits up along the sides as well. Set the pan aside. Then, cook some chopped onion in a skillet, add some chopped ham and continue cooking about one minute. Add eggs to onion and ham mixture and cook an additional 2 minutes or until fully cooked. Remove from heat and let cool. Finally, sprinkle a little bit of cheddar cheese into each biscuit cup, scoop the egg mixture into each muffin cup, and top with a little bit more cheese. Bake for about 15 minutes or until golden brown around the edges.


    Bacon Egg Cups

    This dish is super easy to serve guests and is usually a big hit. After all, what’s not to love about bacon and eggs? To make this dish, preheat your oven to 350 F. Whip your eggs together with salt and cheese in a bowl. Spray non-stick spray or grease your muffin pan with oil or butter. Then, wrap a piece of bacon inside each muffin cup. Fill each muffin pan ¾ of the way full with your egg mixture. Stick it in the oven and bake for 30-40 minutes or until the cups are golden brown. Use a knife to get them out of the pan and serve while hot. If you’re serving to a larger crowd, you can make these a few hours ahead of time and reheat them at the event venue.

    Raspberry Swirl Sweet Rolls

    For those that like a little something sweet in the morning, this breakfast menu idea will definitely hit the spot. While you can make the rolls from scratch, an easier option is buying store bought rolls. All you need to do is make the filling which consists of frozen raspberries, sugar, and cornstarch. Spread the raspberry filling in between the creases of the rolls, bake in the oven until golden, and top with sugar glaze. Serve while warm. These can be made the night before and reheated the next morning.
