6 Easy Breakfast Recipes You Need to Try Making This Weekend

Breakfast Burrito RecipeBreakfast Burrito RecipeBreakfast may very well be the most important meal of the day, but few of us give it the attention it deserves. Our first meal should be an intentional one that gives us the energy we need to focus and work throughout the day, but far too often, our best efforts are left behind in favor of a quick bowl of cereal, a hurried fast-food sandwich, or worse - no breakfast at all. With a little planning, we can have the best of both worlds: a delicious, almost-instant breakfast that fuels us up without consuming our already rushed morning. Check out these 6 recipes that are sure to jump start your day.

Breakfast Casserole with Broccoli, Ham, and Cheese Recipe

This breakfast casserole is packed with broccoli, ham, and is lighter on the eggs than the usual savory bread pudding, so it won't fill you up before the big meal later in the day.

Best Breakfast Tacos Recipe


They're simple, and yet so many fail so often to allow these simple breakfast standbys to really stand out. Smooth refried beans, steamed flour tortillas, chorizo, cheese, and crunchy fried potatoes - that's it. If you want to gussy them up, whip up a batch of fresh simple salsa and guac, or add some scrambled egg. If you don't have time to make your own refried beans, get a can of refried beans and doctor them up with a diced onion, hot sauce, water, and a handful of cheese to make them even tastier. Great in the mornings with kids, or for hangovers if you're still acting like one, and a quick savory dish if you're setting out to have breakfast for dinner.

Grilled Breakfast Pizza with Bacon, Béchamel, Eggs, and Jalapeños Recipe

Pretty easy to make too, especially if you cheat a little and stop by one of your favorite pizza places to pick up a round of uncooked dough. They'll usually sell it to you for anywhere from three to five dollars. Then the breakfast toppings are up to you.

INGREDIENTS


1½- 2 cups béchamel sauce
1 round of pizza dough, homemade, or bought from your favorite local pizza joint (depending where I am, I grab one from Joe's or La Piazza)
½ vegetable or olive oil
2 cups shredded white Cheddar
5 slices bacon
2 jalapeños, sliced thinly
2 eggs

DIRECTIONS

Make your béchamel sauce. Then turn on the grill while you stretch out your pizza dough to the desired shape. If you don't have a grill, but you have a griddle, you can use that, just make sure it's really hot before putting the dough down. Moisten a paper towel with oil and oil the grill where you will be placing the pizza.

Par-cook bacon however you like to do so (I throw it in the microwave for 2 minutes wrapped in paper towels). Lay the dough out on the grill. Remove when grill marks form. Spread the béchamel evenly over the grilled surface, scatter cheese, bacon, and jalapeños. Crack eggs open in strategic locations to better distribute the runny yolk when you cut into the pizza later.

Oil the grill again with a paper towel. Replace pizza and cover with a sheet tray, or a sizzle platter if you're worried about them cooking through (you can also fry your egg separately and then add it to the pizza). Grill for about 8 minutes then serve.
