    Need to start thinking about putting together a portable breakfast menu and was wondering if any of you had one I could draw influence from.

    The breakfast will be for four adults all of who are very health and weight conscious.

    I will be able to use an ice chest if I need and will have access to a microwave and a warming oven as well as silverware.

    I know they enjoy have just a little fresh fruit with their breakfast so will pick up some fresh fruit at the farmers market on our way up to their place. We are helping them pack so less mess and dishes the better.

    Fresh fruit is always a good thing.
    I love to make a mix of granola, and dried fruits. I love bananas, apricots, apricots, cherries; and make my own topping for the fruit. Also vanilla yogurt, mixed with honey, and cinnamon.
    You can buy, plastic, small clear glasses and they can make a simple parfait.
    The granola made ahead; same with the yogurt and fruit. Then, they can just take a scoop of all 3.

    For a main course. I love black bean and egg burritos. The egg, black beans mix can be made ahead. Salsa ahead too.
    Tortilla, 10 seconds in the micro; Heat up the eggs and beans; then top with cheese and stuff in the burrito. I offer lettuce, tomato on the side.

    Poached eggs on baked potato halves. Baked the potatoes ahead, add some turkey bacon or pancetta and cheese. Then just nuke to warm up. The poached eggs, also done ahead, just warm up in the micro; place the egg on the potato half, top with cheese.

    Roasted tomato halves with topped with a poached egg. Made ahead and warmed in the micro. Topped on the tomato and a basil vinaigrette

    Scrambled eggs with diced tomato and basil can be made ahead and reheated in a micro. Great on croissants.

    Just a few ideas of what I have made before.
    I do have recipes if interested

    Great ideas, SC. I've never done a portable breakfast, unless you count a baggie full of dry cereal icon_lol.gif

    I've made a lot of them. Heading to different events.
    Poached eggs are great made ahead, and microwave great to heat up of just in a bowl of hot water.

    Bacon is also great, heats up in 30 seconds in the microwave
    Scrambled eggs, etc.
    The baked spuds, scooped out, you can stuffed with scrambled eggs, mixed with goat cheese or herb boursin; and some added herbs or diced ham and onion.

    Most of these all can be made ahead. And just 1-2 minutes to heat and serve.

    You can even get small cups with lids at a party store these days. Clear ones. Perfect to make parfaits all made up with fruit, granola and yogurt
    Scrambled egg cups are also lots of fun.

    Make the eggs ahead. Make a pan of onions, peppers, and ham. Then pack up some shredded cheese; and also some tomato.
    Then, make up hollandaise and keep in a thermos.

    When ready to eat. Just heat up the eggs and the peppers and onion. Only 1 minute in the micro. Or you can do cooked diced potatoes too

    To a small clear glass, add peppers onions and ham, some eggs, tomato, a spoon of the cheese and hollandaise, more peppers, onions and ham, eggs, tomato, cheese, and top with the warm hollandaise.
    It's basically a egg parfait.
    If you don't like a rich hollandaise, do a light cheese sauce. Just as good.

    Oooo good suggestion! I really like the yogurt parfaits with granola and fruit and the black bean and egg burrito idea.

    Very welcome. Lots can be made ahead, and then, just put together when you get somewhere..

    Burritos, parfait cups, are all easy. And my items can be kept warm.

    We also did a hard boiled egg sandwich which was quite good.
    Hard boiled eggs, sliced
    roasted tomato slices
    ham and cheese
    then, a hollandaise mayo

    Quite cook and very portable, just keep in a cooler; make ahead. I used proscuitto and a good swiss
