I'm having a brunch this coming Saturday. And my husband has a race early that morning, so I will likely only have an hour or so to get food prepped. I need ideas for brunch food that can be prepared ahead of time and don't take forever to cook (as I plan on using the oven to warm up food--I don't want it busy cooking egg bakes or anything).
Any ideas? I'm thinking homemade cinnamon rolls but other than that I'm not sure.

I've never tried this, but some of the ladies in DD's PR rave about it all the time.
