1. Simple Quiche for Two
Quiche makes a great breakfast—or even dinner. You can serve it warm from the oven or chill and serve cold. It tastes great either way. To save time, prepare the pie dough the night before you plan on making the quiche. Whether you add bacon, spinach and mushroom or just keep things simple, this quiche will be gobbled right up.

2. Light and Crispy Buttermilk Waffles
This recipe makes light and tender waffles that are crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. Serve with butter and maple syrup or, for an extra-special breakfast, top with sliced berries and whipped cream. Get the recipe.
3. Grain-Free Silver Dollar Pancakes
These tiny pancakes pack a big flavor punch. One word of caution: Going larger than 1 tablespoon of batter per pancake makes these a hard to flip. Make ’em small and eat a big stack! Get the recipe.
4. Sunshine Smoothie
Smoothies are a fun and easy breakfast treat. This recipe makes a pretty two-layer smoothie that looks like the sunrise. If you don’t feel like making two layers, combine all ingredients in the blender and process until smooth. Get the recipe.
