night before | set out all of your supplies, and take the perfect instagram shot! be purposeful in where you place items to make it easy for the cooks to find and use the right items. (someone WILL try to use a metal fork on your nonstick griddles)

  • 2 large whisks
  • 5 small bowls or cereal bowls
  • 1 sifter
  • 1 paper plate
  • measuring cups
  • large spoon or small ladle
  • strainer

condiment bar
in the morning |bring out your refrigerated items, and assist where necessary. way to go you delegator, you. 
  • Blueberries
  • Raspberries
  • Blackberries
  • Bacon
  • Eggs
Important Notes!!!
  • Have your managers meet at the office 1 hour before the breakfast should be served. That gives ample time to get organized, give instructions and start cooking.
  • Direct them to choose notecards, but make sure they begin with prep work (hey, some people aren’t cooks)
  • The egg station has the choice of over easy/medium or fried eggs, but the griddle I mentioned above WILL NOT support scrambled — the raw egg will just pour out.
  • This is going to be messy. I’ve thought through how to keep it cleanest and I believe equipping each person with a compost bin and paper towels will make the cleanup a breeze
  • Thing about hiring a task rabbit or eden wizard to clean up after the extravaganza so your whole team can eat and bond together… including you! Prepare for a ton of “you’re the best”s
I hope your team has a wonderful time at your pancake (or waffle) breakfast.
