I need some ideas for breakfast items on buffet in limited service hotels in Canada . Biscuits and gravy are unheard of and I need an alternative. Anybody have any suggestions. The hard part is that it is limited service hotels with little or no kitchen equipment.

I am Canadian and though I don't like rice pudding I can tell you it is popular here. But NOT for breakfast. More as a dessert.

I am NOT your typical Canadian in what I like to eat--my favourite breakfast is crepes with fresh raspberries and whipped cream. But I can send you some breakfast menus to give you some ideas of you would like. Just let me know.

You mean Canadians haven't discovered the joys of huevos rancheros, breakfast burritos, chitlins and grits!

I cooked for a younger crowd (18-25) and the most popular items were always:
fresh fruit salad - assorted melons and berries
cold cereal
yogurt
muffins
breakfast sandwiches: egg and ham or egg and bacon
loaded or ham and cheese omeletes
and to a lesser degree:
eggs
french toast
pancakes

I've never found rice pudding to be very popular at all and I doubt if anyone would eat it at breakfast.
Forgot hash browns or home fries - Canadians love potatoes!

Canadian Bacon and Maple syrup


Yup, peameal bacon on a bun. Add an egg and it's even better. If in Quebec, sub the chitlins and grits for baked beans and cretons.

I think it is probably as varied by region here as it is in the States.
Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.

Yeah Baked beans is varied from province to province but it still goes down well as do mushrooms!

But i wouldnt get too much into the cooked stuff if you have a good selection of cold.
