Looking for a quick and easy breakfast recipe? If you are, we know about 10! Needless to say, skipping breakfast is probably the biggest mistake you can make throughout the day, so you better listen up. You’ve probably seen all sorts of Nutella-related videos recently, but you know that’s not the way to go.
This product, although delicious, contains a huge amount of sugar, so let’s only taste it every now and then. Try some good vegetables instead, a nice omelet, some homemade muffins and a refreshing smoothie instead.
Here’s some data for you (courtesy of Statista.com):
- Americans have an average consumption of 2lb cereal and flour products/ year;
- An American eats about 75.7 eggs per year;
- In the past 3 years, the leading morning meal was cold cereal, followed by toasted bread and banana;
- 28% of the young adult population skips breakfast.
Keep this in mind next time you are in hurry to leave the house: breakfast truly is the most important meal of the day. You are probably wondering why cereal is not on our list and the reason is simple: for kids and young adults, cereal are probably the worst choice in terms of nutrients – they don’t contain enough vitamins, fiber etc.
If you don’t count the ones that are artificially added, cereal is nothing but a flavorless kind of snack that could never hold a candle to a nice vegetable omelet. This being said, keep reading and please, try to do something about the way you eat. 17% of toddlers are overweight and the percentage increases every year. And it’s not good food and vegetable that does that! Some kids don’t even know what the hard middle of a peach looks like or where eggs come from, which is kind of outrageous!
The good news is that we can change this. And let’s start with a good breakfast!
1. Mother’s Day Brunch
What a delicious Italian recipe! All you need is onion, garlic, salt, pepper, chili, tomatoes, eggs and Cheddar cheese. Add a frying pan and a medium-sized pot and you are ready to start. The whole process looks a lot like this: in a pan, fry the garlic and onions with a little bit of cooking oil, until the onion turns yellow.
Then, add your diced tomatoes and let everything simmer for about 10 minutes. Keep stirring the composition, add salt and pepper and let it simmer for another 5 minutes. When you are done, pour everything in a medium-sized pot, make a hole in the middle and add a fresh egg. Put your dish in the over for no longer than 3-4 minutes and voila, your Mother’s Day brunch is ready!
2. BLT Breakfast Sandwich
There are three stages of making this breakfast. First, scrape off the flesh from one avocado, add the juice from ½ lime and some salt and then stir. Now moving on to bacon: place a few strips on a grill and place the grill on a pan, then place it in the oven for a few minutes (until the fat fries off). Use two slices of bread for every sandwich you want to make, toast one side only and move on to your eggs.
If you want the yolk to be silky, only fry the egg on one side for a couple of minutes. When you are done, spread the avocado cream on a slice of bread, and add some spring greens, bacon, tomato slices and one egg. In the tutorial, Tatyana also uses mayonnaise, but we would advise against it, since avocados are rich in fats to begin with and don’t need anything else.
3. Breakfast Smoothies
If you are trying to lose weight, this doesn’t mean you can skip meals and only eat yucky foods. On the contrary, you get to enjoy the best ingredients provide that you don’t overdo it. These 5 healthy smoothies are great for you and, in case you didn’t know, also an amazing before workout food.
There are a few things you need to keep in mind when preparing a smoothie: don’t use sugar or honey if you’re using bananas, strawberries or any other sweet fruit. The safest choices are sourly fruits: blueberries, kiwis, lemons, grapefruits etc. Choose soy milk instead of cow milk, if possible and add a drop of vanilla or almond extract to really make your smoothies smell delicious.
4. Breakfast Muffin Recipe
If you are really in a hurry every morning, then why not bake a few muffins in the weekend and keep them in the fridge just in case you don’t have time to prepare anything? This batter consists of two parts: a dry one and a wet one. The dry composition is a mix of jumbo oats, rolled oats, plain flour, white sugar, brown sugar, wheat bran, salt, bicarbonate soda and cinnamon.
Whisk everything together, add finely chopped dried fruits and move on to the wet batter. Whisk together one farm egg, some buttermilk (or yogurt), some vegetable oil and a teaspoon of vanilla extract. Now combine the two compositions, add 1/3 cup of boiled water (to soften the wheats) and stir thoroughly for 1 minute. Pour the composition into mold and bake it. Watch the entire process below:
5. Turkey Patties Breakfast
If you love both ground meat and spices, this recipe is for you. Here’s what to do: prepare a mixture of different spices (fennel seeds, sage, thyme, garlic powder, salt, pepper and chili flakes). Stir everything and add the ground turkey. Mix everything using your hands and then form little patties. Place them on a plate and put them in the fridge overnight (cover them with a ziplock bag first!) and the next day fry them in come cooking oil.
The tutorial uses butter, but if you are not planning on eating the patties right away, you better use cooking oil. Butter becomes greasy and thick after cooling. Also, you’ll see that brown sugar is added- no need to do that! Don’t eat sugar that your body doesn’t need! Also, try using fresh ingredients (fresh garlic, fresh thyme etc.).
You can store some of these patties in a mason jar in the fridge and take them out every morning before leaving for work. Whether you choose to heat them up or not, they’ll still taste delicious!
6. Homemade Hash brown recipe
We know we have a few fast food fans in our audience, so this is for you, guys! Making hash browns has never been easier. It only takes 10-15 minutes and they taste like heaven! Here’s what to do: grate your potatoes and once you’re done put everything in cold water for 5 minutes (to eliminate the starch).
Then drain all the water until your potato strips look like coconut shavings, add a grated onion, egg white, flour, salt and pepper and form large patties like in the tutorial. Fry these patties in cooking oil (6 minutes on one side, then flip and 6 minutes on the other side). Enjoy!
7. Overnight Oatmeal 5 Ways
The Domestic Geek has 5 great recipes for you, especially if losing weight is your number 1 priority right now. Basically, you have to create a base for every recipe: rolled oats, soy milk and honey, then add your favorite fruits, whipped cream, butter cream and so on. However, you can also turn these oats into a great main dish. All you have to do is eliminate the honey and add tomatoes, walnuts and scrambled eggs.
You may also want to replace bread with oatmeal from now on.
8. Breakfast Burrito
If you want to make a breakfast burrito, you’ll need some Italian sausage, half boiled potatoes, paprika, salt, pepper, eggs, pickles, cold slaw, tomatoes, and parsley. Proceed as it follows: peel off the skin from the sausage and fry everything in a pan for about 6-7 minutes. Take another pan, add some cooking oil, the half boiled potatoes, paprika, salt and pepper and fry everything for another 6-7 minutes.
Now it’s time to scramble the eggs. Take a few burrito breading sheets, add the eggs, potatoes and sausage, plus some cold slaw, pickles, parsley and fresh tomatoes. Voila, a delicious breakfast that anybody can make!
9. Pancakes and sausage on A Stick
It’s like corn dogs. Without the corn. And the dogs, of course. If you can make pancake batter, you can make this as well. Here’s what to do: fry a few sizzlers until they turn nice and crispy, place them on a paper towel to dry all the oil excess and then prepare your pancake batter, but make sure it’s a bit thicker than it usually is.
Take a few corn dog sticks and put your sizzlers on them like you would do with a popsicle, dip the sizzler in your pancake batter an fry the sausage for 45 seconds on every side. Once they are done, place them on a paper towel again and serve it with mustard or maple syrup. Enjoy!
