Sounds like turkey-veggie omelets, hash browns, biscuits or rice with gravy would be a good starting point for menu options. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day-- cool! Maybe all American households should start doing Thanksgiving Breakfasts or Brunches!
I recommend making Greenlee's Cinnamon Bread into French toast. Just use eggs and a dash of milk, soak the bread and fry in butter. You can top it off with a bit of maple syrup or sour cream and cooked apples. It's marvelous! You can buy Greenlee's at Whole Foods. You will never buy any other cinnamon bread ever again, after you try this!!

Big breakfasts are a huge tradition in my house on every holiday. We generally do a variety of quiches, chocolate croissants (email if you want the recipe -- easy breezy), pancakes, bacon, sausage, an assortment of fruit and, most importantly, mimosas.
I love a big breakfast. Except on Thanksgiving Day! I usually try to hold my appetite for Thanksgiving Turkey which we usually have around 2PM and then we just graze the whole day through. So Thanksgiving Breakfast for me would be hot chocolate and a croissant.
