Ok, so we will be hosting our wedding at a bed and breakfast in a couple of weeks (eek!). Some of our guests will be staying at the B&B with us. About half of the people staying there are either vegan, vegetarian, or have vegetarian tendencies, for lack of a better term (they eat meat but very rarely). The owners of the B&B are willing to make vegan & vegetarian options for breakfast for our guests. Thing is, they're really quite clueless when it comes to vegan food.
We've already agreed to provide the rice milk and veggie breakfast meats (it's just easier than getting them to get it). We have two breakfasts to figure out. One will be pancakes and I've sent them two pancake recipes (even though they're very skeptical that vegan pancakes will turn out
). The other is still up in the air. To try to figure out what I had to work with I asked what they normally serve for breakfast. This is what I got:
I usually do french toast but topped with chese and sometimes peperoni, fritatas baked in the oven (one is with mushroom and sausage and another with ground beef), pancakes, hawaiian surprise (eggs with pineapple and ham). I always inc potatos and a fruit srarter, either a plate OR a yogurt parfait.
I was thinking they'd give me a bit more to work with than that. I'm tempted to just say potatoes, oatmeal or grits, fruit & toast but was hoping for something a bit more exciting. I thought about a tofu scramble but I think that might be a bit too much to ask. It needs to be something 'familiar' to folks who eat like the above (and they basically have the attitude of "I didn't climb all the way to the top of the food chain to eat grains" - because yes, they actually said that). It doesn't have to be all vegan but with enough options so us vegans won't go hungry (even though I'd be content with just eating cereal
). Oh, and apparently muffins are too difficult, so those are out.
