As the innkeeper at Belle Oaks Inn and Boothe House Bed & Breakfast, it's always a challenge to serve up something different for breakfast every morning. My specialty has become casseroles and quiches, and I've tweaked many recipes to make them make-ahead friendly, so I can prep them the night before, refrigerate overnight, and just pop them in the oven the next morning.
