Crepes sometimes stick together when pre-made unless you separate with wax paper and/or parchment paper - just a word to the wise.

Personally, if it were me, for the first couple of times I'd stick to something relatively easy like the French Toast, fritatta/quiche, even breakfast burritos made with tortillas. Then, as you learn to deal with the crowd and get more confidence and see what your teammates abilities are, try something a little more new and original. Better to go out with a couple of weeks of BANG than come in first time with a BUST!

Baked Oatmeal is a really neat breakfast food you can make ahead. It's like an oatmeal cookie styled as a brownie! Here is one recipe but you can find more online. Also you can use other "extras" such as raisins, craisins, nuts, other dried fruit chopped into bits instead of or with the cranberries:
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup dried cranberries
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, mix together oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt. Beat in milk, eggs, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Stir in dried cranberries. Spread into a (greased) 9x13 inch baking dish.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes.

Another recipe that is a favorite at our church is an egg/sausage casserole. You make it the night before and bake it before serving. There are endless variations if you google it - some use tater tots rather than the cresent rolls:
  • 1 pound pork sausage
  • 1 (8 ounce) package refrigerated crescent roll dough
  • 8 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
Directions
  1. Place sausage in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble, and set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  3. Line the bottom of the prepared baking dish with crescent roll dough, and sprinkle with crumbled sausage. In a large bowl, mix beaten eggs, mozzarella, and Cheddar. Season the mixture with oregano, and pour over the sausage and crescent rolls.
  4. Bake 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

This is a favorite as well. I have made it for my Sunday School several times.

I didn't think about being able to make it in advance. That would be excellent.

I want to have one sweet and one hearty item each week. So, for instance, on the week that I make the casserole, I will have some type of pastry and sweet breakfast item (like red velvet pancakes.)

I don't know how the Southwestern Dishes with beans and salsa would work here.

Monkey Bread! (Although you might want to slice it rather than having people pull it apart (and the raisins and walnuts are both optional):

Ingredients
  • 3 (12 ounce) packages refrigerated biscuit dough
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup margarine
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
  • 1/2 cup raisins

Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease one 9 or 10 inch tube/Bundt® pan.
  2. Mix white sugar and cinnamon in a plastic bag. Cut biscuits into quarters. Shake 6 to 8 biscuit pieces in the sugar cinnamon mix. Arrange pieces in the bottom of the prepared pan. Continue until all biscuits are coated and placed in pan. If using nuts and raisins, arrange them in and among the biscuit pieces as you go along.
  3. In a small saucepan, melt the margarine with the brown sugar over medium heat. Boil for 1 minute. Pour over the biscuits.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 35 minutes. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a plate. Do not cut! The bread just pulls apart.

Corn pudding or that casserole with hash browns sausage and green chilis baked in eggs. I don't have recipes for either offhand.

If you want to go with a casserole, try making a Strata, which is a breakfast bread pudding, or an Italian freeway. There are plenty of different recipes for Strattas, some with meat, some with just vegetables, on the internet. Just Google it. Or, if you have a "used bread store" in you area, you know the bakery outlet where they sell off the day old bread at a huge discount?, you could try this fabulous Cinnamon-Raisin Bread Pudding Recipe.
