Large Group Breakfast Menus, Recipes & Game Plans!

When you’re fixing lunch or dinner for a large group, you have plenty of time prior to serving for prep and cooking.  But unless you want to get up before the roosters, breakfast 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.

I’ve made these breakfasts for the church Youth Conference for 230 teens and leaders, Girls Camp, church Seminary class, Graduation Party Breakfasts and neighborhood supper clubs.  These recipes are especially youth-friendly.  They are designed to be very easy meals to prepare and serve.  Most recipes can be assigned out to volunteers to make in advance, these are marked with a * below.  Most of the additional items only require a simple prep.

Just click on the name of a menu below to link to a page with your game plan, recipes and everything you need to hit breakfast out of the park! (All Teen Tested and Approved)

Huli Huli Chicken

This is without a doubt one of the Best. Chicken. Recipes. Ever. We fixed this for our luau last year. I figured out of the 140 guests there had to be some folks who didn’t like roast pig. So we made 70 pieces of Huli Huli Chicken to supplement the roast pig. Turns out no one doesn’t like roast pig. But NO ONE wanted to skip the chicken either.
