You’ve got a house full of family (or friends) and have to focus on the big meal later in the day… Well, here are a few ideas that hopefully you can use to serve a fun and easy breakfast and maintain your status as the hostess with the mostest. First of all, the big Thanksgiving meal coming up tends to be more formal, so feel free to let the a.m be more casual, even self serve. Set it and forget it. If weather in your area permits, this could even be outside or on a porch allowing for the dining area to stay prepped for later.
Here, I went with a Bloody Mary and Biscuit theme. So, sett out your favorite mixers and garnishes and let guests build their own bloody marys. Other snacky type items, fruit, veggies, (I even like Bacon in my bloodys) here can also double as a buffet- make your drink and plate in one place. This can certainly be a light meal in anticipation of stuffing face later.
A great item that we like to have in the freezer to pull out are biscuits, and some of our favorite are Callie’s Charleston Biscuits… You can see more of us making biscuits in the kitchen with Carey Morrie here. A great item to include on the buffet, and works with everything.
Happy Thanksgiving to all!
