Question Need your help with menu

Every year around beginning of the winter kidís school is having pancake breakfast, fundraiser of a sort, plus lets parents get together and chat for a while. This year there is a talk about doing something different, as far as menu goes, maybe even making a branch. Need your help with menu ideas, no meat please and no dairy. Strictly vegetarian recipes, please.

There must be 15 million different things to do with eggs that are tasty and clever. What are you interested in?

When I saw "Minnesota" in your byline, I immediately thought "Swedish Pancakes with Lingonberries!" (yum!)

Buckwheat Blueberry Pancakes are a little different, healthy and really delicious.

Tough one with no meat or dairy...
pretty much limits things to eggs, and veggies.

If this is a brunch maybe you could do a Tex-Mex theme.

Huevos rancheros, my favorite, scrambled eggs with peppers, onions, and shrooms, maybe some burrito type of things including burritos with eggs, or beans, or a mixture. Could go on but you get the idea.

Or I suppose you could do a French menu. Crepes with mushrooms, crepes with anything you want. Omelets are French, so some of those would go well. Add some croissants or other pastry, and maybe dessert crepes.

Am just pulling this out of the back of my mind, and am not a vegetarian cook, but hope it will help.

Take care and have a great brunch.

What about eggs florentine (like eggs benedict with spinach and mushrooms under the egg) and lots of fruit. Then serve some mini muffins in baskets on the side.

How about whole grain muffins? Or some quick breads, such as banana nut or pumpkin? There are jillions of recipes on the web. Just use vegetable shortening instead of butter.
One or more fruit salads will go over well. If you don't have enough bowls, paper cups will work fine.
If you're allowed eggs, you could also offer a variety of vegetable fritatas. Mushrooms, onions,(sweet and/or hot), broccoli, peas, oriental vegetables (chopped tofu?), your imagination is the limit. That would be easier than making individual omelets, and fritatas stand up well, tasting just as good when room temperature or even cold.
Portobello mushrooms are a wonderful meat substitute. How about a grilled or oven roasted portobello and tomato on a thick slice of toasted bread? Sure would be good with scrambled eggs.

Hope my ideas help!
