Irish Breakfast?

It's my turn to bring breakfast to work next Friday, on St. Patrick's Day.

Next week promises to be awful, as far as workload goes, so I'm looking for something easy.

I'm thinking of making some Irish soda bread, buying that expensive Irish butter, and some good jam or marmalade.

Got any other ideas? Emphasis on EASY, pls.

How about tossing some green coloring in the batter for the soda bread?

You could serve the butter in little pots (pots of gold)

Well, it's not Irish, but it's easy and HUGELY popular. Make it the night before, bake it before you go to work, and cover it with foil until you get to work.

I do love Irish Soda bread, though! :-)

Lee

BRUNCH EGGS
16 SLICES OF SANDWICH BREAD, TRIMMED

1 LB OF SLICED HAM BROKEN IN PIECES

16 SLICES OF CHEESE – 8 SWISS AND 8 AMERICAN

½ tsp. ONION SALT

½ tsp. DRY MUSTARD

7 EGGS

2 CUPS OF MILK

2 CUPS OF CORN FLAKES

½ TO ¾ STICK OF MELTED BUTTER OR MARGARINE

Butter 13x9x2 baking pan. Layer ½ the bread slices, half the ham, 4 slices of the American and 4 slices of the Swiss cheese; repeat layering.

Mix eggs, onion salt, dry mustard and milk. Pour over the top. Let stand overnight, (preferable), or for a few hours.

Mix corn flakes in melted butter/margarine and spread on the top of the dish.

Bake 350 degrees for 40 minutes or until top is golden brown.

(Note: You can halve this recipe and bake it in a square brownie pan)

Thanks for all the good ideas, folks. I'd actually thought about some dishes like the ones suggested by jpmcgrew, Qsis, and Anau. I may do the egg casserole thing and some corned beef hash on the side.

The trick will be keeping everything warm - I usually arrive at the office by 6 a.m. and most people in my dept don't arrive until 8:30 or 9:00 at the earliest. We only have a typical microwave that's shared by many others, but I suppose I could just tell everyone to go stand in line to heat their stuff up.

And I do like the idea of green bread............
