Whether You’re Making Breakfast for Two or For a Family – Make it Special!

Cheddar and Chive Eggs with a Cheese Sauce….put them in a baked pastry shell or a crepe… quick easy and foolproof…and oh so delicious!
Eggs Benedict – terrific poached eggs on an English muffin with luscious Hollandaise Sauce over it…
Omelets are a wonderful choice for two…. they work really well when you make them for two people… making them for a family doesn’t usually work as well someone always ends up waiting for theirs while others have to start eating theirs before it gets cold. Use two pans at once or make one and put on a oven save plate and cover it with foil …. Put it in a warm oven while you make the second omelet…
Make each omelet with whatever ingredients each of you prefer…. See the Recipe and Tip Index under Breakfasts and Brunch
