Doctors and dietitians have been saying for years that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. In spite of that fact, many people continue to skip it because they are in a hurry to get to work or school, and making breakfast takes up valuable time. Many also skip it because they get tired of eating the same cold cereal or toast. Thankfully, there are plenty of recipes that provide a quick and nutritious breakfast for these busy people.
One of the quickest breakfasts to go is a waffle sandwich, and is very pleasing for the younger crowd. It is easily made by toasting two frozen waffles. Once they are done, there is any number of choices of toppings. One can spread peanut butter and jelly or for something a little more decadent, one could use a chocolate hazelnut spread. Put the waffles together, and they are ready to eat on the way to school or work.
For those who prefer something a little more savory, a frittata in a mug is a great choice. Simply start by whisking 2 eggs with 1 tablespoon of milk, 1/4 cup of shredded cheddar cheese, salt and pepper in a coffee cup. Microwave it for approximately 1 minute, stirring every 20 seconds until the eggs are just set. For a change, substitute mozzarella for the cheddar and add 2 tablespoons of chopped tomato. An equally delicious option is adding 2 tablespoons of breakfast sausage or cooked bacon crumbles to the egg mixture.
Quick Healthy Breakfast
For the health conscious, a fruit salad is a great choice for a quick healthy breakfast. To make this, mix 2 cups of cut-up fruit with 1 tablespoon of chopped mint, the juice of 1/2 a lime, and 1 teaspoon of honey.
Apple lovers will love the stuffed apple. To make this, miss a few tablespoons of melted peanut butter with a handful of granola. Stuff the mixture into a cored apple and then cut into segments.
Some would prefer to prepare something the night before so that they can grab and go. For them, scones are a wonderful and delicious choice. To make, mix 2 cups of self-rising flour and 1/4 cup of sugar, then slowly work in 1/2 stick of softened butter by hand. Stir in 3/4 cup of milk. Spoon into a uttered 6-cup muffin pan and bake at 400 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes.
It's easy to have a quick and healthy breakfast, and these 5 recipes are just the beginning.
