Crepes sound good, and I may work up to that...

But, because I haven't been able to get six people lined up..I am going to do a breakfast casserole for the first Sunday.

Let me ask this question - what I have always done for casseroles I have made at the house was to buy some canned Grand biscuits, and then flatten them for the bottom.

If I buy the frozen, bagged biscuits, in bulk, like Grands, will I be able to mash them down like that, when they thaw out?

I doubt you will be able to mash down frozen biscuits...haven't they been partially pre-baked? Or am I thinking of something else?

Nope, frozen biscuits are not prebaked.

Ice breaker: Have everyone at the table introduce themselves and tell how they got their name. Or they can tell something about themselves that most people don't know.

Because so many of my recipes potentially call for a good amount of biscuit dough (breakfast casserole, monkey bread, etc...) I am trying to find out if it will be better to use canned biscuits, or, will it be cheaper to buy "biscuit dough" non-canned? I am sure there is a mark up for the easiness of canned biscuit dough. Can you buy it non-canned?

You could use Bisquick or make your own bisquick substitute, which would be the cheapest.

Quiche!! This was a lovely breakfast idea (or would have been, if it was fully cooked--yikes!!) at a wedding that I attended. Just cook separate quiches and serve them in whatever kind of dishes suit the occasion. You can also dress it up by adding "fancy" ingredients like asparagus, spinach, good Parmesan cheese, etc. Oh, and it's suitable for any time of day. And talk about class-ay!

Toad in the Hole should go down a treat it incorporates pancake batter and sausages.
Ella, bagels, cream cheese and lox mitt a gherkin then some yesterdays cold lokshen pudding is a big brekkie fav of mine, the fact it renders me immobile is quite a pleasant side effect

First breakfast - great, very successful. Breakfast casserole and monkey bread - loved by all!

Now - what's next? I am loving the "Stuffed/Baked French Toast" idea, but, what's a good hearty item to go along with it?
