Amazing Breakfast Recipes

Amazing, yet easy breakfast recipes help you start your day on the right foot. But, I imagine you are like me. I often grab breakfast on my way out of the door. Then on the weekends, I have a little more time and I like to cook. Let me show you a few breakfast recipes that work well for either situation.

In either case, incorporate fresh fruit into your diet. It is easy and will help with your health. For example, grab an apple or a banana on your way out of the door or have half of a grapefruit with your pancakes.

"On the Go" Breakfast Recipes

Life gets busy and some mornings there just isn't time to sit down and have a nice meal. But that doesn't mean that you should skip breakfast. Your mother always told you it was the most important meal of the day and she was right. These easy breakfast recipes will help you save time and eat well.

Tip: Don't settle for pop tarts, granola bars, or super sweet breakfast cereal. They are full of empty calories (fat and sugar). In fact a Nature Valley Trail Mix Granola Bar contains almost exactly the same amount of fat, sugar, and calories as two fun size Snicker bars. Fruit loops are half sugar (15 grams of sugar in a 30 gram serving). You might as well eat candy bars for breakfast.

With a little bit of effort, you can have a very tasty and healthful breakfast every day of the week. Here are some breakfast recipes that can help you with that.

  • Breakfast Cookies (Coming Soon!): Use dried fruit and nuts to make a tasty and healthful cookie that can fill you up.
  • Breakfast Sandwiches (Coming Soon!): There are many sandwiches that you can do for breakfast, let me show you my favorites.
  • Muffins (Coming Soon!): I have many types of muffin recipes and many of them are healthful. You can make them ahead of time and freeze them in ziplock bags. Then you can just grab a bag with a muffin in it and take it with you. They will thaw in about an hour.
  • Orange French Toast: This French toast can be made ahead of time and tastes great without syrup making it perfect to grab and go.
  • Toast: I know you don't need a recipe for toast, but let me share a few ideas of how I top my toast.
  • Yogurt: Did you know that a 8 ounce yogurt can have 43 grams of sugar! Flavor your own yogurt to suit your tastes and help you stay healthy. You can make it ahead of time and eat it when you get to work.

"Sit and Eat" Breakfast Recipes

On Saturday, I have more time to leisurely cook breakfast and enjoy it. These are some of my favorite dishes to make.

Tip: When I was a boy, Mom would make many of these recipes while I was getting ready for school. If you are the family cook and have the time to make breakfast every morning, your family will love you for it.

Many of these recipes (such as the hot cereals) require some time to cook, but require very little prep time.

  • Corn Meal Mush: This hot cereal is not very well known, but it is my favorite hot cereal.
  • Country Brunch skillet: What better way to start the day than with some great potatoes and eggs?
  • Country Style Scrambled Eggs: if you're tired of plain boring scrambled eggs, try this recipe on for size!
  • Crepes (Coming Soon!): Thin delicate crepes filled with fresh fruit and whipped cream.
  • French Toast: Check out some of the different options you have when you make French toast. Create your own favorite recipe!
  • German Pancakes (Coming Soon!): Light and fluffy egg based German style pancakes. This recipe takes very little prep time and only a few minutes in the oven to cook.
  • Oat Meal (Coming Soon!): A hearty breakfast that will keep you full all morning long. Try the traditional or apple cinnamon oatmeal.
  • Omelets (Coming Soon!): This is a great way to sneak some delicious veggies in for breakfast. 
  • Orange Smoothie: This great tasting orange smoothie, inspired by Orange Julius, will make any breakfast feel gourmet!
  • Pancakes (Coming Soon!): Traditional style homemade pancakes.
  • Pumpkin Waffles (Coming Soon!): This twist on waffles is perfect to change up your breakfast menu.
  • Rice/Rice Mush (Coming Soon!): We like to eat rice with sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and milk. Sometimes we also do a cracked rice cereal that is also very tasty.
  • Scrambled Eggs: Learn the secrets to making great scrambled eggs.
  • Waffles (Coming Soon!): Everybody loves these traditional style waffles; top them with either fresh fruit and whipped cream or one of our homemade syrups.

Syrup Recipes

In my mind, syrup is an important part of pancakes and waffles. I just couldn't write a breakfast recipes page without including a few recipes for syrup!

Tip: Keep in mind that syrups contain a lot of sugar. Learn to use less syrup so your breakfast doesn't turn into dessert. Cut back a little at a time and you won't even miss it.

Try the butter syrup recipe below. It is a very light syrup that doesn't have near as much sugar as the others do.
  • Butter Syrup: I've never met anybody else that makes this milk based syrup, but everybody I have served it to wants the recipe.
  • Coconut Syrup: This is a light and refreshing coconut flavored syrup.
  • Maple Syrup: Learn to make your own maple syrup. It will save you money and it tastes great.
