Simple, generic marnade for chicken?

Good old Italian vinaigrette dressing! I love Ken's steak house Italian dressing for chicken.

They are close friends, I am really just trying to avoid any prep in the morning cause like you I don't love help in the kitchen. I think I can handle putting the quiche ingredients together the day before. Give it a whisk in the morning and dump into muffin tins.

Potatoes in the oven for 20 mins (keep warm on the stove), drop the temp, slide the cinnamon rolls and mini quiches in the oven for 20-30, bacon on the grill, dress the salad and eat!

Overnight guests- quiche, frittata or baked eggs?

Thank you to everyone who posted ideas, they are all really helpful! I am still torn between the quiche and frittata. There are so many good ideas I can't decide.

I am leaning towards quiche filling in muffin tins and baked that morning. That way they are fresh, but fast as well, and can probably cook and be ready with the cinnamon rolls.

I will start with the potatoes in the oven, take them out- keep them warm, and pop the rolls and mini quiches in the oven and I think I'll do some bacon on the grill. Thanks for all the help!

Thanks for all of these ideas- I am so intrigued by something in the crockpot - could be eggs or steel cut oats!

Although they sound great I might stay away from a strata because I have the "bready" cinnamon rolls to go along side.

Might go the quiche route if I think I will have time the night before to make it and cool, and refrigerate, then just reheat with the rolls

Or the frittata...I just really don't want to be at the stove, but the fresh, hot factor here may win out

Quick question- The recipes for quiches (at least in a tarte pan) seem to have pre-baked crusts can I put both an uncooked crust and uncooked filling in at the same time?

Thanks! Would I undercook it a bit, let it cool, freeze then reheat in the oven - this recipe states 350, do you think I could do it at 375 so it can go in with the rolls?

Pine- can you elaborate on the directions for this?

Wow, thank you all so much for the help! I think I might go the frittata route, but make it in a Lorraine style and since I do think I will need 2 pans worth I can have some fun and make 2 flavors. I think I will use the cooking directions from the asparagus frittata in the Chow email I got today, unless anyone has any fool proof frittata making tips!

Thanks for the Trader Joe's croissant tip as well- if I didn't have the cinnamon rolls I would be all over those- so good to know!

Overnight guests- quiche, frittata or baked eggs?

Hi there- I am having a group of 10 adults for an overnight stay in a few weeks.

I am all set with dinner, but it is breakfast the next morning that I am having trouble with. I don't want to run out for bagels, do eggs on order or be doing a ton of cooking in the morning (possibly before others are awake)

I have cinnamon rolls already frozen - ready to be defrosted overnight then baked at 375 for 30 mins or so, then iced.

I want to do an egg dish (but not something sweet like a french toast bake) with a simple green salad to go along side and maybe have someone bring a fruit salad if we are feeling ambitious.

But my question is- do I make a quiche ahead of time and stick it in the oven with the cinnamon rolls to heat up? and if so can I freeze it ahead of time and defrost in the fridge overnight?

Or do I make ramekins of baked eggs? Or is a frittata a better bet?

I would love any thoughts at all!
