Faced with a spice cabinet while groggy? Without even a drop of caffeine yet? Uh, no.
It's safe to say mornings aren't for recipes that call for this, that, and all the seasonings you own. No! Mornings are for 5-ingredient or less breakfasts—ones that give you a lot for a little.
While these 21 recipes require just a few (mostly pantry!) staples, that doesn't mean they're lacking flavor-wise. (Do these fried eggs with wine vinegar look timid to you?) Instead, they're an exercise in frugality in the best, most delicious way possible.
And with that, your 5-ingredient breakfasts are waiting. Just don't forget the coffee—or tea.
What's your favorite 5-ingredient or less breakfast? Tell us about it in the comments.
