I do love the different ideas everyone has. That's the great thing about food is that we all preceve it differently. To me i see quiche i see eggs. Most prob see a weird looking pie. Good feedback folks. I will keep all of the ideas in mind for the next time. It's really just a contest between all of us chefs at work to see who can come up with the most well receive menus.

CWS, I love your idea of the herb crepes where they build their own "wrap". What a scrumptious idea.

You can premake the crepes. They can be stored in the fridge for 2-3 days or frozen for about a month. You use a lot of waxed paper, but they can be made ahead.

I love the herbed crepes idea, too! Quick and easy.

ChefBLucas - I worked in Dormitory Kitchens, cooked for 3000 - 3 meals a day, nothing is too much when feeding a crowd. It's fun! We did omelets and waffles to order.

A savory waffle (with bacon and cheddar cheese) is really nice
(for dinner or brunch).

Just use your basic crepe recipe and add fresh herbs, e.g. thyme, parsley, chives, etc.

To poach large amounts of eggs, cook the eggs ahead of time, slightly under cooking them. Slide them into a large bowl of cold water. When ready to serve/replenish your serving line etc. immerse in barely simmering water for 1 to 2 minutes. It's just that simple dude!

I feel like with a buffet you have to do the thinking for the dinner. You can't be there for them to tell them how to eat there food all the time.
Excuse me?
