Breakfast Potluck ideas

Hello all,

We're having a breakfast potluck at work on monday. There are only about 10 of us that will be present. We have no way to keep food warm, once we get it here, so i'm leaning away from egg/quiche type dishes. I'd like to bring something i can eat, but if this seems like to much work, i may just stop and get them donuts.


(we have a breakfast every month and i NEVER eat anything because its usually breads and pastries).

TIA

Quiches are great room temp, that's what I'd be leaning toward.

so the eggs and cheese won't go bad sitting on the countertop for a while. We don't have fridge space in the office to store them, so any leftovers would be trashed.

i think trying to make some low carb muffins, flax or otherwise, would be a good call. Experiment with some flavors using canned pumpkin or whatever da vinci syrups you may have at home. i like to make muffins and top them with cream cheese mixed with splenda.

Jody's Pumpkin Bake.

Yes its killer cold (you can top with whipped cream too!)

8 oz. block of cream cheese
5 eggs (I opted for 4)
1/2 cup Splenda (or equivalent liquid Splenda, like DaVinci's: 2T. + 2 t.)
15 oz. can of solid pack pumpkin
1/2 T. pumpkin pie spice
1 t. cinnamon

Soften cream cheese to room temp., beat with mixer, add eggs, beat some more, add pumpkin, splenda, spices. Pour into greased 8 x 8 baking dish, bake at 350 for 40 minutes. Cool and slice into serving size pieces (and that size is entirely up to you, naturally )

I brought fruit and brie to a morning meeting last week - everybody raved.

I got pre-cut watermelon and mango, and a pint of blueberries, along with a hunk of brie. All at Trader Joe's. The whole thing came in at $15 and was enough for about 8 (not very hungry) people. But if your thing is a potluck, along with other stuff this would be plenty.

It was my turn to bring something and I loved it because it was something I could actually eat! Everyone else brings muffins, donuts, bagels.

If I didn't feel like spending the $$, I'd just bring devilled eggs - people LOVE them. It's amazing how quick they go at parties .

depends on what is legal for your plan.
If you are going from house to office and eating when you arrive then you could use one of those corningware carriers and it would still be hot or cold. We have potlucks all the time at church and everybody uses them to bring dinner dishes.

Bake an easy focada with all the veggies you love and are legal for your plan with cheese you love meats you love and eggs then slice it like a pizza and transport in your dish in its carrier.

if you don't got one of those carrier then use foil a cardboard box and eaither a hot watewr bottle or an ice pack if you want it hot or cold.

you can do one of CLEO's oopsi pizzas with a cream cheese/yogurt cheese sauce and fruits if you wanted something cold.

breakfast pizza sounds good (i don't know how to make oopsies...i've screwed them up 3 times now)

What else would work for a crust.

PS I'm on maintenance

I love Dana Carpender's Strawberry dip. It's easy. It's delicious. And everyone loves it.
Orange Cream Dip for Strawberries
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 cup sour cream (I used Greek yogurt)
1 pkg sf vanilla pudding
Grated rind of one orange

Whip all 4 ingredients together. Serve with strawberries. I leave the leaves on the strawberries as little holders. Almost no work. I can't tell you how many people have asked for the recipe.

if you like cauliflower or zuchinni Cleo has pizza crust for both and then you could top with whatever you wanted.

if you screw up oopsies and are on maintnenace add some of whatever you use as flour to the yolk mix to stablize it beter you could use flax meal, nut flour, or even Wheat protein isolate or oats or even oat bran or any grain you use ground up. you could even do a basic whole wheat or multigrain dough since you are maintaining if you can handle grains

After taking a peek at this I had to make it...all I can say is yummmmmy!! I think next time I will sprinkle a few walnuts on top, and make it extra yummy. This is perfect for a brunch, but it is a bit time consuming.

Nuts on top sounds like a great addition!! I'll definitely try that next time I make it.
