How about a frittata? Not as easy to screw up as an omelet and very yummy. Plus it's versatile in terms of ingredients and it can be served warm, room temperature or cold.

I second the frittata idea. I like mine with tomatoes, fresh spinach, basil and mozzarella cheese...it's very fresh tasting, like an insalata caprese. You can also add turkey sausage if you want some meat. It's delicious with a small green salad on the side with vinaigrette. Also, it seems fancy but is super easy to make

Strata, too. It's like fancy savory French toast in a casserole. You can make it the night before and just pop in the oven.

Speaking of grilled cheese, has everyone seen the utterly ridiculous eggs-in-a-hole grilled cheese? It has been going around the internet lately. I made one for dinner the other night and boy was it good. Not sure how practical it would be to make a lot for a brunch; maybe if you had a giant griddle pan.

Essentially you make two eggs-in-a-hole (cut a hole in a piece of bread; put the bread on the pan, with butter, and toast momentarily; crack an egg into each hole and cook until it sets enough; flip!), and after you flip the first time you put cheese on one of the pieces. Then you put it all together and ideally you have runny yolk grilled cheese. Not something to eat every day but certainly worth a try at least once.

I thought to do one with, say, Boursin type cheese and smoked salmon in the middle; or apples, cheddar and bacon.

As far as I go, all sorts of Italian-style sandwiches are great. Pancakes could be. Or sweet buns with coffee. Or eggs fried with bacon or sausage slices. Or Greek or Caesar or similar salad, I guess.
