On Thanksgiving Day the last thing you want to do is to cook a big meal for breakfast. Not only would that be excessive work but who wants to get too full when the meal of the year will be served in a matter of hours? I have a couple of simple things that are not too filling but are quick and easy to fix.
If your guests and family enjoys waffles, here is a great idea. Prepare and cook the waffles a day or two in advance and freeze. I reheat them using my rib racks in the oven at 350 degrees. Place them on the table with bowls of watermelon, cantaloupe, pineapple, strawberries, and whatever fruit you like. Don’t forget the syrup and whip cream. It is quick, enjoyable, and does not put a heavy weight on the belly. For health reasons you want to push the idea of fresh fruits.
The other idea that we use on occasions is to make flavored oatmeal. Even the grown-ups like this with some store baked coffee cakes and muffins on the side. Oatmeal is a food that can have many things added to it to vary tastes. Applesauce, cinnamon, berries, bananas, or walnuts. It is really your choice. Try this. Take 2 cups cooked oatmeal. Add 1 tablespoon of brown sugar to the mix. Add ¼ to ½ cup of fresh or frozen (thawed) blueberries with a ¼ cup half and half. Mix well and enjoy.
