There are thousands of new recipes posted online every day. We love trolling sites like Pinterest, Gojee, and Tastespotting as much as the next person, but we realize that can be a huge time drain. These breakfast recipes are tasty, restorative, and even better, they'll help start your day on a healthy foot.
Rhubarb, Blueberry, and Almond Baked Oatmeal
What do you get when you replace the butter and flour in a fruit cobbler with tons of fresh fruit and oats? This dessert-inspired dish is perfect for the breakfast table any time of year - just switch in seasonal fruits. Make it even healthier by taking out some of the added sugar.ShakshukaThis Tunisian skillet dish is super-popular throughout Northern Africa and the Middle East. Serve the dairy-free and gluten-free tomato and pepper stew with some fresh crusty bread (or rice for GF friends). Hosting vegans? Replace the poached eggs with some well-seasoned tofu.
Sweet Potato and Apple Home Fries
This light breakfast side dish is miles above the greasy potatoes and shriveled onions served at the neighborhood diner. Stick sweet potatoes and tart apples, heart-healthy olive oil, a dash of pepper, and some rosemary in a roasting pan and get ready for the ultimate (healthy) comfort food.
Mushroom-Spinach Baked Eggs
This recipe looks impressive, but it's pretty darn easy. Sautee a bunch of vegetables in a pan (feel free to make substitutions!), layer in a casserole dish with slices of bread, and add eggs and grated cheese on top. Bake everything for 20 to 30 minutes and then impress everybody with your culinary prowess.
Gluten-free waffles without a zillion hard-to-find ingredients? Yup - these light, fluffy waffles use just two varieties of flour. Serve them with plenty of fresh fruit, real maple syrup, honey, and a sprinkle of cinnamon. We highly recommend freezing a few (or a dozen) extra for busy mornings.
