Thanksgiving Morning Breakfast Ideas

My family and I need to eat a little something to hold us over in the morning. What's a fun idea for a light breakfast knowing that we'll be starting Thanksgiving apps around 2pm? Something that's not your cereal, piece of toast etc, but easy with little cleanup.

LizzyRoseDubs,
for a light breakfast on Turkey Day, I would include feature at least one fruit-heavy or vegetable-heavy dish.
Add bread and protein (dairy, fish, meat) if they aren't already in one of the salads or smoothie.
