Breakfast Ideas for 1-bed units???

Do the 1-bedroom DVC units include toasters in the kitchen? Does anyone want to share their breakfast menus or ideas?? I do not plan on using the kitchen to do any full meals, but breakfast is usually easier for us in the room as we can eat while others are getting ready for the day. We will be driving rather than flying this trip so I can bring what we need. The only ideas I have are oatmeal, cereal, and bagels if there are toasters. We will be staying for 10 nights so I want a little variety. All ideas greatly appreciated!!

You will have a toaster and a full kitchen. You can cook anything you would at home because you will have pots and pans. If you like eggs, bacon, etc. you could cook that.

We usually make a large bowl of cut up fruit that will last a few days. We also do bacon, eggs and toast. remember to bring salt and pepper and sugar if you think you will need it. We also bring coffee filters, tea and coffee from home. As someone else said you can do anything you would do at home. Since you will be driving you can bring most of what you think you will need with you. Have a great trip.

Toasted English Muffin, heated up Jimmy Dean sausage pattie, slice of cheese. Voile! Sausage McMuffin! Only better.

You have a toaster, a microwave oven, regular oven, four burners, blender, full refrigerator (with ice cube trays unless you are at OKW -they have ice machines in the refrigerator). Pots and pans and dishes.

We're planning on almost every breakfast in the villa. We've got eggs, bacon, French toast, oatmeal, yogurt, fruit, pancakes, granola, cereal, bagels, and cream cheese. I don't love eating breakfast but I like making it and my crew loves chowing down. And coffee and various juices. Can't wait!

My kids love their toaster waffles, so we had some days at Aulani with that. Also had a side of sausage to spice it up a little which is not a typical school morning edition. They also like whip cream on it and I found I could get a smaller canister to use instead of toting syrup.

You do have the full kitchen with a 1 bedroom. When we've had the full kitchen, I've brought pancake mix where you just add water. We cook them all up in one day, then just reheat them in the microwave for the rest of the week. Since you're driving, you'll have a car, so you can pick up eggs, bacon, sausage, fruit salad, syrup, etc. With the full size fridge, you could get frozen waffles or anything else frozen that you could toast if you don't want to cook.

Eggs Benedict Recipe

Eggs benedict is also great made with slices of smoked salmon in place of the bacon. If you are in or around New Jersey, try it with Taylor ham.
Add to shopping list

8 pieces of bacon or 4 pieces of Canadian bacon
2 tablespoons chopped parsley, for garnish
4 eggs
2 teaspoons white or rice vinegar
2 English muffins

Blender Hollandaise

10 Tbsp unsalted butter
3 egg yolks
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
Dash of cayenne or tabasco


1 Start with the bacon. Heat a large skillet on medium low heat. Add the strips of bacon or the slices of Canadian bacon. Slowly fry, turning occasionally, until the bacon is browned on both sides, and if using strip bacon, much of the fat is rendered out (about 10 minutes). Use tongs or a fork to remove the bacon from the pan, set on a paper towel to absorb the excess fat. Don't pour the bacon fat left in the pan down the drain! Either sop it up with paper towels when it has cooled a bit, or pour it into a jar to be used later (see rendering bacon fat).

2 While the bacon is cooking, bring a large saucepan two-thirds-filled with water to a boil, then add the vinegar. Bring the water to a boil again, then lower the heat to a bare simmer.

3 Make the blender hollandaise. To make blender hollandaise, melt 10 Tbsp unsalted butter. Put 3 egg yolks, a tablespoon of lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon salt in a blender, blend on medium to medium high speed for 20-30 seconds, until eggs lighten in color. Turn blender down to lowest setting, slowly dribble in the hot melted butter, while continuing to blend. Taste for salt and acidity and add more salt or lemon juice to taste.Transfer it to a container you can use for pouring and set it on a warm – but not hot – place on or near the stovetop.

4 Poach the eggs. Here is an easy method for poaching eggs. Essentially, working one egg at a time you crack an egg into a small bowl and slip it into the barely simmering water. Once it begins to solidify, you can slip in another egg, until you have all four cooking. Turn off the heat, cover the pan, and let sit for 4 minutes. (Remember which egg went in first, you'll want to take it out first.) When it comes time to remove the eggs, gently lift out with a slotted spoon. Note that the timing is a little variable on the eggs, depending on the size of your pan, how much water, how many eggs, and how runny you like them. You might have to experiment a little with your set-up to figure out what you need to do to get the eggs exactly the way you like them.

5 As soon as all the eggs are in the poaching water, begin toasting your English muffins. If you can’t get all the muffins toasted by the time the eggs are ready, gently remove the eggs from the poaching water and set in a bowl.

6 To assemble the eggs benedict, butter one side of an English muffin. Top with two slices of bacon or 1 slice of Canadian bacon. You can trim the bacon to fit the muffin if you’d like. Put a poached egg on top of the bacon, then pour some hollandaise over. Sprinkle some parsley over it all and serve at once.

Yield: Makes 4 one-egg one-muffin servings of eggs benedict.

You request the blender from mousekeeping.

Or anything you want!

Thanks for all the ideas! I will be the one doing all the cooking so now I guess I have to decide how early I want to wake which will depend on eggs, bacon, etc or frozen waffles!!!

Breakfast ideas

We have a lake house and also an RV that we use this for whenever we're away from home.

You'd have to lug a crockpot but it makes cooking time so much easier.

We line our crockpot with two crockpot bags laid out side by side. We whip up some eggs for scrambled eggs for one bag and place sausage (or bacon) in the other. You could also use a third bag and put potatoes in it. We put it all in right before we go to bed and turn the crockpot on low.

The next morning we zap a few tortillas in the microwave and make breakfast burritos. You can add cheese and sour cream too.

You can also cook cinnamon rolls in your waffle maker. Smoosh them, wait for the timer to go off, add the frosting. I cook a meat to go on the side, add some fruit... yummy

Something nice and easy with minimal mess is an egg sandwich on an english muffin. Microwave a couple of pieces of bacon. One pan for the egg melt a slice of cheese on the egg while it's in the pan. Easy peasy. One pan to clean and the plate you put the bacon on.
