What’s Happening With the Most Important Meal of the Day
Your average breakfast event doesn’t just consist of a tray of cold donuts and Danishes, served alongside a big thermos of regular coffee and some orange juice. Breakfast events are much more sophisticated than that, and include foods that are much more hearty and healthy, as well as delicious. The demand for healthier, more unique and varied options is growing, and as such, caterers are honing in on what their clients and their guests expect at a breakfast event, whether it’s a corporate meeting, bridal shower, or just a non-formal gathering of friends.
Top Breakfast Catering Trends For 2013
Here are some of the top trends you’ll see in breakfast catering in the upcoming new year:
Oatmeal is Back!
Oatmeal seems to be coming back with a vengeance on breakfast tables. Back in the day, oatmeal was a staple for breakfast, since it was filling and affordable. Nowadays, people seem to be going back to their roots, and are including oatmeal more and more. Not only is it filling, but it’s also heart-healthy, which today’s health-conscious adult is taking more seriously. Even fast food restaurants are including it on their menus. As such, you can expect to see this breakfast food being including as part of a breakfast caterer’s menu at many breakfast events.
Food Stations With Breakfast Sandwiches
Breakfast sandwiches are also quite popular, and will be a main-stay at breakfast events in 2013. They are hearty and delicious, and basically have an entire breakfast all wrapped up in a convenient package. Breakfast caterers will have breakfast sandwich stations with all different types of breakfast foods that are wrapped up in tortillas, calzones, croissants, biscuits and wraps. These sandwiches are a great alternative to a plain old cold pastry tray for any breakfast event!
Menu options for a breakfast buffet are seemingly endless. Caterers supply their clients with all sorts of ideas for their next breakfast event, like eggs, cereals, fresh fruit, potatoes, and so forth.
