Pork Rind Pancakes

Pork rind pancakes might just be the strangest—and best—low-carb breakfast option ever invented. Adding pancetta makes these pancakes a feast of pork two ways. Using maple flavoring means no need for calorie-laden syrup.

Blueberry, Lemon and Poppy Seed Scones

These delicious scones replace high-carb, sugar-laden treats with a “breakfast bread” that’s full of protein, fiber and ingredients friendly to fat-burning. It’s important to let them cool completely; try making them the night before and leaving them to rest and cool overnight.

Streusel-Topped French Toast Casserole

Made with a brown sugar and cinnamon custard and topped with a crunchy streusel, this baked French toast makes any morning a celebration.

Smoked Cheddar Breakfast Sandwich With Spinach

This simple breakfast sandwich gets a pop of flavor from the smoked cheddar. If you can’t find smoked cheddar, use smoked bacon. The spinach is optional but adds a lovely flavor to the sandwich.

Dairy-Free Blueberry, Lemon and Almond Parfaits

These lovely parfaits are elegant enough to serve at a brunch for guests yet simple enough that kids can prepare them for a weekday breakfast (and even prepare the night before).

Bunny Pancakes

Surprise your children with a delightful way to eat breakfast and celebrate the Easter Bunny. You can assemble and serve the bunny pancakes, or place a blank face and ears on the plate so your kids can come up with their own creations.

Fried Eggs (Oeufs sur la Plat)

This practical French way of cooking fried eggs results in an appetizing combination of delicately firm whites and nicely runny yolks. The recipe, with the addition of tomatoes or potatoes, makes the perfect dinner on those nights when you’re dining solo.

No-Fail Weekend Waffles

These waffles come together in minutes—no whipping egg whites required. For the crispiest waffles, be sure to preheat your waffle iron before adding the batter. For a dairy-free version, replace the milk with your favorite dairy-free substitution.

Gluten-Free Waffle Breakfast

This fun gluten-free waffle dish will delight everyone at your breakfast table. And best of all, it’s ready in less than 10 minutes!
