Breakfast may be the most important meal of the day, but we seldom treat it as such. We fall into ruts with toast or cereal; or we skip it altogether, opting instead to snooze for 10 more minutes. If you give it a chance, though, breakfast can brighten your morning and get your day started on a delicious (and healthful!) note. We're revisiting this post from a couple years back because it's full of flavorful, totally-not-boring breakfast recipes. We also added a few new favorites, all of which are good enough to get you out of bed -- no snooze button necessary.

They all look good, though I don't know if I'd want a smoothie on a cold winter morning.

When I go to the UK, one of my first stops is at a grocery store, and once I've hit the chocolates, I go to the dairy department to buy rhubarb yogurt. I am in love with the stuff! Never seen it in the US, so I make my own in the summer. I also add granola to it to add some crunch! Here's my homemade concoction: http://christinascucina...

Wow! That sounds amazing. I've never heard of rhubarb yogurt.

Breakfast makes my heart sing! I'm pleased to be able to vouch for 4 of these recipes. The overnight oats are amazing (I make it on Sundays and fill mason jars with it to last all week). The granola is a crowd pleaser (good with milk, GREAT with yogurt).

I also like the granola by the handful. It always disappears more quickly than I expect it to....

I am not sure this keeps me out of a rut but any time a poached egg and a whole lot of Louisiana Hot Sauce is involved, I am pretty darn happy ... be it on grits or oatmeal or an English muffin or whatever ....

I love hot sauce on pretty much any savory breakfast -- especially grits!
