Pancakes at midnight?? That's definitely the making of a memorable evening.

Otherwise, let them crash and get some shut eye and plan to serve a hearty breakfast in the morning after an after prom sleepover.

French Toast Bar

  1. Platter of French Toast: You can prep my fluffy french toast a couple days in advance and just store it in the fridge. Then serve it family style on large platters. Just keep it warm on a baking sheet in the oven until you're ready to eat!
  2. An Assortment of Sauces and Syrups: Set out bowls or tiny pitches filled with a variety of syrups and sauces. My strawberry sauce, triple berry sauce, and a bowl of lemon curd are great places to start.
  3. Whipped Cream
  4. Fresh Berries

Waffle Bar

  1. Platters of Waffles: Waffles can be made ahead and even frozen. Just pop them in the toaster or heat them in the oven on baking sheets. You could serve classic buttermilk waffles or add fun flavors like my red velvet waffles or chocolate waffles.
  2. Fried Chicken Tenders: For kids who might want to make their own chicken and waffles, add a platter of fried chicken tenders.
  3. Assortment of Sauces and Syrups: My sweet and spicy sauce for chicken and waffles is delicious with or without the chicken.
  4. Whipped Cream
  5. Cream Cheese Drizzle: If you plan to serve the red velvet or chocolate waffles, kids love this cream cheese drizzle with mini chocolate chips or fresh fruit.

Pancake Bar

  1. Platter of Pancakes: You can prep large batches of buttermilk pancakes in advance and just warm them on baking sheets in the oven.
  2. Assorted Sauces and Syrups: Any of the sauces mentioned so far pair well with pancakes but how but trying a batch of roasted cherries, peach jam, or pineapple topping??
  3. Whipped Cream
  4. Mini Chocolate Chips
  5. Chopped Nuts

Granola Bar

Let the kids build their own yogurt and granola parfaits.

  1. Granola: Bake a batch of homemade granola up to a week in advance.
  2. Yogurt: Offer a few tubs of different flavors.
  3. Fresh Fruit and Fruit Dip: In case some kids don't like yogurt, you could also offer a sweet fruit dip.
  4. Chopped Nuts
  5. Irish Oatmeal: Oatmeal doesn't sound very exciting, but if you offer a large variety of toppings like chopped pecans, dried fruits, brown sugar, and mini chocolate chips, some kids might prefer this warmer take on oats. My Irish oatmeal can be prepped in large batches.

Breakfast Sandwich Bar

Let the kids assemble their own breakfast sandwiches by mix and matching all the different fillings:

  1. Platter of Breakfast Breads: English muffins, bagels, croissants
  2. Baked Egg Patties: You could do a big skillet of scrambled eggs but my egg patties can be prepped in big batches, too.
  3. Sausage Patties: My turkey breakfast sausage can be made into patties ahead of time and just warmed in the oven.

  2. Scrambled Eggs
  3. Roasted Veggies

Breakfast Casseroles

Want a one and done, all-in-one dish to serve? You definitely want a casserole.

  1. Egg-Based Breakfast Casseroles: You could try my cheesy egg and ham pie or this classic egg breakfast casserole.
  2. Hearty Casseroles: Sausage biscuits and gravy casserole would be my first pick with this delicious french toast casserole a close second.
  3. Lighter Casseroles: You could prep a lemon blueberry baked oatmeal or my spicy eggs in purgatory in a huge skillet.
