Baked Egg Boats

These egg boats aren’t just pretty to look at. They’re fun to eat, too! The best part? They’re super easy to make.

Once baked, every bite of these egg boats will give you a tasty combination of eggs, pork belly, cheese, and onion.

Poached Egg and Avocado Toast

Creamy, drippy, soft yolks on top of avocado toast — this is the kind of breakfast I could eat all day long.

Frittata is an Italian egg-based dish that you can fill with just about anything. Yup, even leftovers! So, for this recipe, you can unleash your creativity.

Depending on the frittata’s filling, you can serve this dish any time of the day.

For instance, load it up with some protein and veggies to make a fabulous brunch meal.

The secret to making an excellent frittata is to build layers of flavors. How do you do that?

Simple. Just season the add-ins (veggies or meat) and eggs separately.

Serve with avocado toast or a crunchy kale salad for a filling breakfast.

Breakfast Grilled Cheese With Scrambled Eggs

This egg and grilled cheese mash-up is one of the best offerings at Du’s Donuts in NYC.

The recipe yields something quite similar to a grilled cheese sandwich, only better. Fluffy, soft eggs lie underneath a slice of creamy American cheese.

If you haven’t had eggs and cheese together, seriously, you have to try this sandwich!

Breakfast Egg Muffins

Like a frittata, these egg muffin cups are so versatile. You can use any ingredients you have on-hand.

While this recipe creates muffins with bacon strips and veggies, you can make yours 100% vegetarian or meaty, if you like.

For a healthy grab-and-go breakfast, I’m sure these egg muffins are well worth the 30 minutes of your time.

Baked Avocado Egg

Remember the baked egg boats a while ago? This is another version that you’ll love.

Instead of French baguettes, you’ll bake the eggs and other ingredients inside fresh avocados.

Baked stuffed avocado is a must-have if you want a delicious breakfast with an impressive nutrient boost.

It’s all thanks to the quality protein from eggs and tons of fiber from avocados.

Savory Cheddar Oatmeal with a Fried Egg

Who says oatmeal should always be sweet? Not me, ever since I tried this savory cheddar version.

Bake the next day to create a refreshing breakfast that will feed a hungry crowd!

Pain Perdu

Pain perdu allows you to put your day-old, stale bread into good use. This ingredient is not just preferred but required.

Why? Because stale bread does a fine job of soaking up the delicious custard batter.

Pain perdu is a well-loved American breakfast, also known as French toast. If you love indulging in a sweet dish first thing in the morning, you’ll adore this recipe.

For the garnish, you can’t go wrong with maple syrup, powdered sugar, almond slices, and fresh strawberries.

For a filling breakfast casserole, I love using the original Bisquick mix in addition to my choice of proteins, veggies, and dairy.

The best thing about this recipe is that it’s so easy to whip up. You can do it even on a lazy Sunday morning.

Because Bisquick breakfast casserole is savory, it’s perfect with something sweet on the side. Nothing beats a parfait or fruit bowl for me!

Making a quiche doesn’t have to be so challenging and time-consuming. If you have a pre-made pie crust, use it.

Breakfast tacos are the best! They’re mini-tortillas with scrambled eggs, hash browns, bacon, and cheese.

These cute and filling tacos will be a hit with the kids. But I’m pretty sure the adults won’t say no to this well-spiced dish either!

Baked Denver Omelet

What’s good about Denver omelets? Well, for one, they’re anything but bland! These omelets burst with flavors from ham, veggies, and cheese.

And if you haven’t had a baked omelet before, now’s the time to try it. This recipe yields a soft and flavor-packed omelet.

It’s also low-carb, so you can take a bite without the guilt!

Smother this casserole in maple syrup to make your sweet breakfast extra delightful.

Take it a notch higher (yup, that’s still possible) by using fresh berries as a topping.

Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole

If you’re a potato lover like me, you’ll love this tater tot recipe.

This comfort food is made even better with the addition of mushroom soup, ground beef, and of course, cheese.

Now, technically, there are no eggs in the original recipe. But if you swap out the ground beef for sausage meat, it becomes an instant breakfast dish.

Serve it with a side of scrambled eggs and your family will go nuts!

You can even sneak in some veggies to make a healthy breakfast for the kids.

Oh, did I mention you can add veggies too? Yup, this casserole takes on many forms. Feel free to add veggies of your choice.

The preparation is pretty easy too. Just chop, mix, and bake.

Breakfast Strata

Okay, this is (yet again) a breakfast casserole, but it’s different from the rest. It’s in cake form!

This dish is crunchy on the outside and custardy on the inside. Plus, it only needs breakfast essentials like eggs, bacon, bread, cheese, and milk.

Obviously, you’ll have to use a cake pan instead of a casserole dish. The fun part is serving this breakfast meal as slices of “cake.”

Turkish Eggs

Fried eggs can be boring, so why not put a unique Turkish twist on them?

The combination of chili butter and whipped feta cheese will make this dish creamy and slightly spicy.

Serve with toasted bagels, avocado slices, and garlicky greens for a complete and hearty breakfast meal.


Want some fluffy and extra light pancakes? The secret is to whip the egg whites! Do this before adding them to the buttermilk and egg yolks.

After making the pancakes, make sure you have extra eggs. Scramble them for a classic pancake topping!

Who doesn’t love a good muffin? This one combines banana and chocolate — the ultimate breakfast duo. It’s crowd-friendly and definitely kid-friendly, too!

This dish is also perfect to use up leftovers.

This fried rice is so filling, and you can also serve it for lunch or dinner. Any time is a good time, really!

You can make this recipe ahead of time so you won’t go crazy about breakfast the next morning.

The best part? This recipe allows you to use the kids’ favorite ingredients and customize the egg cups.
