Otherwise please read on as we run through some of our favourite breakfast options with you here:
1. Healthy Breakfast Cups
Craving something fresh and healthy that can be easily eaten during your corporate breakfast meeting or event? Breakfast cups are a great option especially on a hot summer day! Our menu has a variety of delicious options from our bircher muesli cups filled with traditional Swiss style muesli with rolled oats, freshly grated apple, dried fruits and nuts, rhubarb and yoghurt to our granola cup layered with Greek yoghurt, berry compote and our house-made granola of roasted oats, sunflower and pumpkin seeds, white sesame, sultanas and manuka honey and then there’s our chia cups which are vegan and gluten free (bonus!); the chia is soaked in coconut milk and then topped with seasonal fresh fruit. Breakfast cups are a great option for your next corporate breakfast event, full of protein and fibre they are a must for a healthy and balanced diet!
2. Croissants – Sweet or Savoury…or Both!
Hosting a corporate breakfast event in winter? Then we think croissants are a must! Traditional croissants served with whipped butter or a fruit preserve are perfect to accompany your tea or coffee or treat your guests with flavoured croissants such as chocolate or almond. Don’t want to go down the sweet path? Then hot savoury croissants are sure to be a hit with your guests, we source our croissants from Phillippa’s Bakery and fill them with double smoked leg ham and Swiss cheese or mushrooms, feta and spinach for our vegetarian guests. And if you can’t decide between sweet or savoury croissants, why not order a mix of both!
3. Toast It!
Catering for some burly tradies? Need something savoury and hearty for your breakfast event? Then you can’t go past a toasted option! Here at Elizabeth Andrews we like to think outside the box, instead of your standard toasted sandwich pack a punch at your next catered breakfast with either a toasted English muffin or a Turkish roll. Our toasted English muffins are full of flavour; filled with either cheddar cheese and leg ham, Swiss cheese, frittata slice and crispy bacon or for your vegetarian guests’ fresh tomato, brie and avocado. Our Turkish rolls are filled with ham, tomato and gruyere cheese or tomato, spinach and tasty cheddar cheese for the vegetarians. Our toasted English muffins and Turkish rolls are sure to be crowd pleasers at your next breakfast event!
4. Savoury Delights; Tarts, Quiches, Frittatas, Omelettes and BLT’s
If you’re wanting savoury breakfast catering but toasted breads and croissants aren’t your thing then the humble breakfast offers a huge variety of delicious savoury options. These options can be ‘mini’ serving sizes as part of a wider buffet or be the main star of your breakfast dish if you’re hosting a formal, sit down breakfast event. Options such as breakfast tarts, quiches, frittatas and breakfast omelettes are sure to satisfy those grumbling tummies, come in a variety of flavours and can be made vegetarian.
If you do want to consider a bread-based breakfast option that isn’t toasted then you can go past the classic breakfast BLT; Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato!
5. Muffins and Other Breakfast Treats!
We can’t talk corporate breakfast catering without mentioning muffins! A muffin can take many different forms and offer a great variety for all appetites. Ranging from the hearty and savoury to the sweet and small, muffins are a classic breakfast food that appeals to the masses! Muffins are also perfect for guests with special dietary requirements savoury muffins can cater to your vegetarians (ours are filled with zucchini, spinach, feta and parmesan, baked in-house and topped with pumpkin seeds) and sweet muffins are available in gluten free, dairy free and vegan alternatives.
If you want to provide some sweet treats for your corporate breakfast event but want to steer away from traditional muffins then there’s plenty of fun alternatives! Why not consider doughnuts, filled or iced, Danish pastries or lamingtons? For healthier sweet alternatives look at options such as raw slices or protein balls. Or if you want to go all out, why not treat your attendees to pancakes! Topped with maple syrup, honey, fruit or berries, pancakes are the ultimate breakfast treat!
This one is a no-brainer! You should always serve fruit at your corporate breakfast event! Attendees have a full day of work or meetings ahead of them so your sweet and savoury breakfast catering should always be accompanied by healthy fruit. As obvious as it may seem to add fruit to your breakfast menu, there’s still a variety of options available and it will depend on the style of breakfast event you are hosting. For a quick breakfast meeting you may want to offer whole fruit for guests to ‘grab and go’, for a stand-up style of breakfast event we’d recommend something easy to eat like fruit skewers or fruit salad cups and for a more formal, sit down style of corporate breakfast we’d suggest fruit platters.
At Elizabeth Andrews, we truly believe there is no better way to kick start your day than with a delicious breakfast! We have an extensive breakfast menu with a range of healthy breakfast options, treats and savouries along with some fabulous breakfast catering packages ranging from basic breakfast packages to gourmet options to make your next breakfast event a huge success!
