12 Breakfast Recipes That Will Make Your Weekend Amazing

  1. shakshuka


    Hungry? This beloved Israeli dish of eggs poached in a smoky, spicy tomato sauce is good for breakfast, dinner, or anytime in between. Plus, it’s fun to say: shakshuka!

  2. blueberry coffee cake

    Blueberry Coffee Cake (aka Boy Bait)

    Cleverly named “Boy Bait” for its habit-forming effect on young men, this coffee cake is tender, easy to make, and jam-packed with berries.

  3. Glazed Oatmeal-Maple Scones with Pecans & Currants

    These comforting breakfast treats are like a cross between scones and oatmeal cookies: buttery and tender on the inside, crisp and craggy on the outside, and chockfull of oats, pecans and currants.

  4. strata

    Spinach & Cheese Strata

    This spinach and cheese casserole is perfect for company. You do all of the preparation the night before and then let it rest in the fridge overnight. The next day you simply turn the oven on, stick the strata in, and effortlessly wait for brunch to emerge.

  5. pumpkin pancakes

    Pumpkin Pancakes

    Light and fluffy with crisp edges, these spiced pumpkin pancakes have a nice fall flavor and are perfect alongside a hot cup of coffee on a chilly morning. Since the pancakes freeze well, I usually make a double batch on the weekend so the kids can just pop them in the toaster on busy mornings throughout the week.

  6. Amish-Style Baked Oatmeal with Apples, Raisins & Walnuts

    Baked oatmeal is a comforting Amish breakfast casserole with a consistency similar to bread pudding. There are endless variations but this version with apples, plump raisins, and a crunchy walnut topping is my favorite.

  7. Savory Sausage and Cheddar Bread Pudding

    Bread pudding is usually sweet, but it can be made savory too. This version, brimming with sweet pork sausage and sharp cheddar, is deeply flavored with a crisp, golden crust and tender, creamy interior. It’s perfect for a crowd.

  8. biscotti

    Double Chocolate Biscotti

    Who says you can’t have cookies for breakfast? When you dunk these biscotti into your coffee, they soften, becoming rich, chocolaty and decadent. They’re a world apart from the brick-like packaged biscotti sold in most coffee shops.

  9. banana bread

    Marbled Chocolate Banana Bread

    Tender and sweet-scented, this banana bread has a gorgeous ribbon of melted chocolate running through it. It’s fun to make: you spoon the banana and chocolate batters into the loaf pan alternately, then artistically swirl the two together with a knife.

  10. caramel french toast

    Drunken Caramel French Toast

    Part booze, part French toast, part bread pudding — how could you go wrong? This is the ideal brunch dish because you assemble it the night before, let it sit in the fridge overnight, then just pop it in the oven when everyone wakes up.

  11. Banana Pancakes

    Fluffy on the inside, crispy on the outside, and delicately flavored with bananas and vanilla — these are phenomenal banana pancakes. The recipe, believe it or not, is adapted from a Williams Sonoma children’s cookbook, which only proves how easy they are to make.

  12. Morning Glory Muffins

    Morning Glory Muffins are made with a little bit of everything — whole wheat flour, carrots, apples, raisins, walnuts, orange juice, coconut and wheat germ — and, true to their name, they’re a glorious way to start the day.
