Breakfast Recipes for a Crowd of 50 or more

When you’re fixing lunch or dinner for a lot of folks you have plenty of time prior to serving for prep and cooking.  But unless you want to get up before the roosters, breakfast for a large group is a different story.  These large group breakfast recipes have been specifically chosen to avoid a 4 AM wake up call.  Many of these recipes can be made several days before and simply prepped or heated prior to serving.  And best of all – everyone will love them!

I’ve made these breakfasts many times for multiple church Youth Conferences (serving 230 to 315), Girls Camps, church Seminary classes, Graduation Party Breakfasts and neighborhood supper clubs (nothing beats breakfast for dinner).  They’re perfect for your next crowd of 50 or 500.

These recipes are especially youth-friendly.  They are designed to be very easy meals to prepare and serve.  In fact, most of these recipes can be assigned out to volunteers to make in advance.   These recipes are easily assignable by following the steps below.  If I’m cooking for more than 30 – 40, I often ask multiple volunteers to help me prepare these in advance and bring to the event.  Many hands…

Ham and Cheese Sliders

These little sliders are a delightful choice when cooking breakfast for a lot of people.  They come together in minutes, can be made the night before serving and are delicious hot out of the oven.  Better plan on your guests wanting a couple each – they are definite crowd-pleasers!

Serve all of one type or mix and match for a fabulous slider buffet.   Include a side of Hash Browns or Oven Roasted Herb Potatoes for a Crowd and fresh fruit with an Orange Vanilla Bean Dressing or a Lime Ginger Dressing and you’ll have an easy way to get them out of bed.
