I would take bacon strips.  Easy, and there won't be any leftover.

If you think the crowd would understand & appreciate it, you could go Middle Eastern. A common breakfast is a feta-type cheese, olives, and crusty bread, like a French baguette, or a flat bread. Sliced tomatoes and cucumbers are often served.

I was thinking yogurt and granola.  A couple large tubs of plain, some granola and a small squeeze bottle of honey. Small cups ( keep servings small ) and some spoons. 

Hmmmmm

What would you bring to a breakfast potluck?

The easy/obvious things on the signup sheet are already taken (juice, fruit, doughnuts, muffins, breakfast casserole, paper goods)

Any ideas welcome! Thanks.
The major thing I see missing is coffee.

I also think having something that is not carb focused would be good. Most breakfast casseroles are bread or potato heavy. You could do a ham, broccoli and cheese frittata. They sit and travel well and can be served at room temp if you don't have a way to keep it warm during transport. There is also a baked oatmeal casserole on the foodnetwork site. I've made it and served with yogurt.

If you go this route, Chinet 9 oz tumblers would be about perfect.  They hold about 7 oz of yogurt, and a spoonful of granola and/or honey. 

I offered this for a hospitality room once, and while I didn't get many takers, it was an easy thing to put out.  Just put the container in a bowl of ice, and have a couple of small ladles to serve the yogurt and the granola.

I believe coffee and creamer have been claimed, I didn't think to mention it.

How about make your own breakfast sandwiches? English muffins or regular bread or wrap, scrambled eggs, breakfast meat, sliced tomatoes, cheese. Eggs and meat may need to kept warm somehow, though I don't mind food that's no longer piping hot.

Or just all those ingredients for a regular egg scramble. I don't know what a breakfast casserole is so I don't know if that's too similar to a scramble.

Also a thought. Breakfast doesn't have to be "breakfast" foods or it can be a mix, like chicken and waffles.

A breakfast casserole can have many things in it, it's usually eggs, cheese, and other things: maybe bread, potatoes, sausage, spinach, etc.

Thanks to everyone for the suggestions!  Unfortunately, the potluck was cancelled due to illness in the instructor's family.
