This turned out to be great for our big group, especially because they didn't all come to breakfast at the same time.
I made enough batter to last the morning, and left that next to the waffle iron. Folks got a fresh waffle, then added their toppings of choice. I set out syrup, whipped cream, chocolate chips, walnuts, bananas, blueberries, and strawberries. Pretty easy assembly, everyone got a fresh hot breakfast regardless of when they get up, and I didn't have to slave away and supervise for hours on end!
How do you handle breakfast for large groups?
