Entertaining: Texas Breakfast for 8

Got weekend guests?  Typically, you'll go out to eat most of the weekend, hitting up all the latest hot spots.  But getting a group to go out for breakfast is challenging.  If there are kids, there's a packaging issue.  You bundle them up for the cold and when you're just about done sealing every orifice shut, you hear "Mommy, I have to go to the bathroom".  If there are tweens, there's a they're glued to their electronic devices and don't understand the word "outside".  If you've got 20-somethings, they're probably too hungover too move faster than a turtle's pace.  And we 30-somethings and up are usually handicapped by these 3 other groups.  :)
Mornings are the best time to serve a warm, satisfying meal to your guests: everyone wakes up at different times, everyone takes turns showering and getting ready, and everyone is there for a relaxing stay.  No need to rush anyone. 

An all around pleaser is a very simple Vegan-Friendly Breakfast Taco bar, which will please both meat-eaters, vegetarians, and vegans. Everything is store-bought with almost no prep!
