Got some family coming over from the UK one does not eat gluten or dairy, it will probably be only a breakfast and snack I need to provide.
Whilst she has said a fried breakfast (obviously gluten free sausages) without an egg is fine, it would be nice as they have come so far to make something a little special.
Normally I would be thinking omelette, pancakes but of course neither of that is any good, she is not fond of bread as has learnt to do without it.

Ideas please, if something new, I would like to practice first, they are coming beginning of February

Excellent post! I have a family member with similar dietary issues arriving late February, however she has said eggs are fine for her diet, she finds fruit sets her tummy issues off (as well as the gluten and dairy issues).

Looks interesting Eelcat, unfortunately kai's visitor eats neither eggs nor dairy. Could be worth trying for the rest of us though.

Did you know, that what you thought I said, was not what I meant :S

Potato fritters can be easy and tasty. Similar to hash browns, my mum made them with grated potato, squeezed and drained, sprinkle a little GF cornflour over and some cracked pepper and a little thyme to taste, and stir to a slightly sticky mess. Fry in small thin-ish patties fairly slowly so they don't fall apart when turned.
They'd go well with some good bacon and maybe green salad with basil, cherry tomatoes and nuts?
Fresh fruit salad is a nice easy option too.

They sound nice, there is also an added complication, I am a diabetic so I follow a low sugar diet

I have just found and tried soy yoghurt which could be nice with fruit for brekkie

And Idlis could be an option, though not sure what to serve them with for breakfast.

To be honest, I'd probably go down the cooked breakfast route with this one (I know, I know, you wanted something different...), using a variety of things, such as the gluten free sausages, bacon, eggs (or scrambled tofu), pan fried potato cubes or potato fritters, plus fried tomatoes, avocado and toast, taking care to avoid cross contamination. Everyone can take or leave bits as required, but still get a really satisfying meal. The goal for me is for each person to be able to eat 2/3 of the items on offer. As a person my own set of dietary quirks, I would be rapt to receive a substantial cooked breakfast that meets those quirks when away from home.

If you're really keen to avoid the big fry up, sweetcorn fritters? They can be made both gluten free and egg free at the same time. I just don't know how they'd line up with a diabetic diet.

Or breakfast burritos/tacos using corn tortillas. Our local countdown sells pre-made corn tortillas (gluten free, no egg or dairy ingredients) that would be good for this. Or you could get some masa harina (Bin Inn sells it up here) and have fun making your own (I have a tortilla press, but a rolling pin works too).

Google Whole30 recipes. The Whole30 is a way of eating that is the pinnacle of "clean" No processed food, no dairy, (milk products) no grains, and tend to be on the lower carb scale, so should be useful to you as well. There are lots of recipe ideas for breakfasts, though eggs are used in some recipes,but you should be able to find something you can use.

I there such a thing as non dairy cheese?

I have decided to make spaghetti bolognaise with gluten and egg free pasta, served with garlic bread made from GF pizza bases I found in the supermarket and topped with garlic in olive oil.

For breakfast soy yoghurt with fresh fruit I have taste tested the yoghurt and it is pretty nice. The one who eats everything can have a bacon sandwich if he wants.

Have you taste tested the pasta and bread? The gluten free versions I have tried have been revolting :S
