Last Minute Breakfast Recipes

  • Dinner Omelet
    Make a simple omelet with eggs, veggies, and cheese, and you can be eating in minutes.
  • Pancakes
    Pancakes may seem difficult, but they take only a few minutes to make. Well, this may be cheating, but make Make Ahead Pancake Batter, then all you have to do is cook the pancakes!
  • French Toast
    This is our favorite quick breakfast recipe. We like using whole wheat bread because the French Toast is more substantial. But you can use any good quality bread that has some heft to it.
  • Waffle Quiches
    A quiche mixture is poured on frozen waffles, then baked to make a wonderful open-faced breakfast sandwich. Sprinkle with powdered sugar for the perfect finishing touch.
  • Swiss Eggs
    Eggs are baked with sausages, cream, and cheese in this simple and flavorful recipe. We love this one for breakfast or dinner!
  • Muffins
    Muffins take just a few minutes to stir together. They're best eating warm from the oven, so make a batch or two!
  • Quick Coffeecake
    We love this recipe. It's been in our family for decades. It's quick, easy, flavorful, and makes a bunch so you can have it for two breakfasts!
