1. Quiche Toast Cups
2. Breakfast Pizza
Because everyone loves pizza, why not make it for breakfast!? Just replace the flour crust with hash browns, and then top it with your favourite breakfast ingredients (eggs, bacon, sausage, ham, peppers, cheese, etc.). Make your own hash brown base by grating leftover boiled potatoes and lining a skillet with them. Add toppings and grill until cooked through. Cheap as chips! Or well potatoes 🙂
There are so many pancake options that I could literally give you 10 breakfast ideas for pancakes. Not to mention that you can have them sweet or savoury.
Then I found this recipe – it is foolproof even for me!
4. Bacon Pancake Dippers
This may sound strange to you, but these bacon pancake dippers are the BEST! I like that you can just pick them up and dip them. They are so divine when smothered in maple syrup. Simply pour a strip of pancake batter and add a slice of cooked bacon to the top. Cook on both sides and serve.
5. Egg rolls
Beat up some eggs. Add a thin layer to a pan and fry on both sides for a few minutes. This creates an egg roll – kinda like a tortilla wrap only made from an egg!
You can then fill with lots of different things such as bacon, ham, cheese. You can even add a little sweetener or sugar to the egg before making the wrap and fill with custard, cream and fresh fruits! So delicious!
These can also make excellent lunch box ideas as they taste great cold.
6. Crockpot french toast
Another great breakfast idea perfect for colder mornings. You can make ahead the night before too and serve in the morning. Dice up bread – I like to use sweet bread such as brioche or croissant. You then make up a mixture of eggs, milk, cinnamon and sugar. You can throw in some raisins, bananas and blueberries too if you like. Pour the mixture over the bread and cook on low for a few hours until cooked through.
7. Breakfast tray bake
In a deep sided baking tray add some hash browns, sausages, mushrooms, tomatoes, eggs, beans and cook in the oven. This is basically throw everything on a tray and oven bake for 30 minutes. You can mix it up by adding asparagus, baby potatoes for more of a brunch feel.
8. Smoothie Bowls
Combine frozen banana, frozen strawberries, and any other fresh or frozen fruit you have in a blender. Add some coconut milk. You can also add protein powder if you wish. Puree until completely smooth. Make sure the mixture is thick.
Transfer to a bowl and top with seeds, nuts, fruit slices, desiccated coconut and whatever else you like. Enjoy!
9. Baked Oatmeal
- 3 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
- 1/3 cup light brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 3 eggs
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 1 cup raisins optional
Grease a 10-inch pan with butter or coat with cooking spray. Combine the oats, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl. Stir to combine. Add the oil, eggs, and milk and stir to combine. Add the raisins and stir once more.
Scoop the oat mixture into the greased pan and bake for 30 minutes. The oatmeal should be lightly browned, slightly crisp on top and around the edges.
Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
You can add peanut butter, Biscoff or chocolate chips to this recipe to jazz it up. You can also freeze this in advance. It is perfect to serve in slices as a tasty snack for the children.
For something completely different on my top 10 breakfast ideas. I am OBSESSED with this recipe from Nadiya Hussein (of Great British Bake off fame)
- 3 tablespoons sunflower oil
- 1 tablespoon salted butter
- medium red onion (sliced)
- 1 small chilli (deseeded and chopped finely) – you can leave it out if you don’t want to add it
- ½ teaspoon fine sea salt
- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 5 slices bread (cut into 2cm cubes)
- 3 large eggs (whisked lightly)
- 3 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander
Heat a wok over medium heat. Put the oil and butter into the hot wok.
Add the onions and chilli, lower the heat and cook gently for about 10 minutes, until softened. Season with salt and pepper.
Now add the cubes of bread, and toss through the onions to mix well. The bread will become lightly toasted.
Pour the eggs all over the bread. Give everything a brief stir, then cover with a lid and leave over a low heat for 2 minutes. This will allow the egg to cook through.
Take off the lid and stir the mixture to break it up.
Take off the heat, sprinkle over the coriander and serve.
Until next time,
