As we all know, breakfast is the most important meal, so it’s important to get it right.
In addition to being essential from a nutrition standpoint, a nice breakfast is a great way for people to start their day, a fact that should not be overlooked. Nothing puts guests at ease like a nice meal, and that goes a long way towards ensuring the success of an event.
From a healthy option to grilled sandwiches, these ideas will give you an interesting array of choices to satisfy all the attendees to your catered event.
This type of breakfast is called “continental” because is modeled after the light morning meals served across the continental territories of Europe. Although this menu is relatively light, it will provide your guests with the energy to kick-start their day. As a rule of thumb this option doesn’t include hot food such as eggs or sausages, and usually consists of coffee, pastries, muffins and bagels, seasonal fruit salad and orange juice.
If continental breakfast is light and inspired on continental Europe, a hot breakfast is hearty and more in line with the English tradition. This option will satisfy your guests by following the first part of the old saying: “Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper.” Scrambled eggs, bacon, potato hash and muffins are usual staples of this kind of menu.
People are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of eating right. If you are serving breakfast for health-conscious guests, you want to offer them delicious options that also satisfy their need for healthy food. In that case, your selection may include granola, low-fat yogurt, seasonal berries, fruit salad and fruit juice.
Surprise your guests or the attendees to your event with some inventive choices. Toasted coconut, almonds and a frittata, the Italian version of the French omelet, are options guaranteed to amaze and delight. You can also consider serving organic steel cut oats, grain oats that are steel cut rather than rolled, which produces a heartier texture.
Grilled sandwiches are an original and convenient alternative you can consider when creating your breakfast catering menu. Cheddar with sausage or bacon are great ingredients to offer to those who love meat. A vegetarian option may include gruyere cheese and vegetables such as spinach and roasted tomato.
