Looking for help with All-Day Breakfast Special at the bar!

Hello all,
I work for my dad at our neighborhood bar. We like to come up with some cool specials and one of our upcoming specials will be an 'all-day breakfast.' Now I'm no great chef, so I'm looking for ideas for simple things I can do for this special. Eggs seem pretty easy, as does bacon and toast. Anybody have any other recommendations? If I'm going to make some stuff up in advance, it must hold well. If I'm to make it fresh to order, it has to be fairly simple. It can get fairly busy at times at the bar and I wouldn't want to get in over my head. Thanks for any suggestions, fellas!

Omlette - Maybe pick your own ingredients.
Bfast Burrito - Meat or veggy style

This is something that I often go to this diner for and could eat it for breakfast, lunch, or dinner and it's an easy make ahead... Crabcake benedict... It's absolutely fabulous, I think their trick is homemade hollandaise sauce, and great crabcakes...

Hi Jared, nice to see you again. It's been fun in the past to help you with menu ideas for the bar. All day breakfast? That sounds interesting.

In addition to "cooked to order" breakfast, you might want to think about things like breakfast casseroles. There are dozens of them at this site.

Eggo toaster waffles with fruit compote & whipped cream.

Soft boiled eggs on toasted and buttered English muffins with three strips of bacon. (Don't forget to use vinegar in the poaching water.)

Biscuits & Gravy - both can be made ahead of time and kept warm. (Keep hot sauce handy for the customer.)

Chicken strips & Gravy. Serve the gravy on the side like a dipping sauce.

Homefries. Must have homefries!

Parboil lots of potatoes the night before, drain, and cool.
Next day, crisp them up on the griddle with whatever fat you're using.
Salt and pepper, maybe some powdered onion and garlic.
Just don't do the shake of paprika...

If your griddle is seasoned well, you can press them slightly and develop a sheet of crispy love.

Homefries make or break brunch for me.

I agree with Kayelle with the casserole. You could make individual frittatas in cheap disposable foil pans. They can be just about any combo of meat and veggie

Don't forget you can include sweets like pastry, cinnamon rolls, muffins, and fresh fruit. Bagels and different cream cheeses.
