Breakfast is often referred to as the most important meal of the day, and it is easy to see why. Eating nourishing food first thing in the morning primes your brain and body for the work you have set on your schedule. Coming up with breakfast ideas can sometimes be hard enough when you might not feel up for cooking, and things get even tougher when you are planning for a crowd.

In any group, you can expect people to have some type of food sensitivity. In fact, celiac disease impacts approximately 1 in every 133 people in the United States, which makes it highly likely you’ll have someone who is sensitive to gluten among your dining companions. Planning a meal is easier with these three gluten free breakfast ideas from our personal chef that also fit other types of dietary needs.

Breakfast ideas from our Personal Chef!

1. Fruit Salad With a Sausage Side

When it comes to breakfast, you can’t go wrong with serving a fruit salad. Fruit is light enough for people to enjoy when they don’t usually eat in the morning, and you can trust that it is gluten free when it is served fresh. Our caterers in NJ search for the freshest seasonal fruits, and the ingredients in your fruit salad are likely to have come from a local farmer’s market.

Depending upon the season, you can find watermelon, cantaloupe, apples and other favorites mixed into the salad. You can serve fruit salad alone for an option that vegetarians and people on a gluten free diet will love. Or, you can choose to put some sausage or bacon on the side to satisfy people who prefer to have a protein option for breakfast.

2. Veggie or Meat Frittata

Frittatas are a lot like quiches but without the pie crust, and there is no denying that the mixture of savory flavors such as eggs and broccoli and cheddar will get the morning off to an amazing start. Frittatas are especially fun since you can pick from multiple ingredients to put into the egg base. Try spinach and mushroom for another power-packed breakfast idea, or you can go with ham and Swiss cheese if you prefer to have some meat.

3. Sweet Potato and Kale Hash

Our Jersey Shore catering service likes to prove that special diets are anything but boring. A sweet potato and kale hash blends two very different flavors to make a breakfast that is fit for champions. Sweet potato and kale are both powerhouse vegetables that fill your body up with antioxidants and nutrients that promote better health. On top of those delicious ingredients, we add caramelized onions and bell peppers to create a savory-sweet breakfast that will help your crowd power through to lunch.

Gluten free meals have benefits for everyone that includes filling each person’s plate with fresh and nutritious ingredients that give them energy for the day. Our catering service is known for being accommodating to a variety of special diets. Just let us know your group’s needs, and we’ll make sure that everyone has something delicious and healthy to enjoy for breakfast.
