13 Weekday Breakfast Recipes

January 21, 2015

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.blogspot.com/2012/05/crunchy-rhubarb-yogurt.html

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!
