Waking up early in the morning is hard enough for some of us. And the thought of getting up and making breakfast for the whole family or just yourself might feel exhausting on some days, but it doesn’t have to be.
Gone are the days of having the same rotation of breakfast meals, it’s time to try something new and exciting. Do you want cinnamon rolls, flaky biscuits, or tender scones? You can have all three if you want, and they’re so easy to bake too!
This is where we step in and show you how you can change your breakfast routine for the better. We’re providing you with some delicious and mouthwatering breakfast-baking recipes to try out. So, let’s get straight to it!
For Savory Lovers
For those who incline towards having savory breakfasts, have no fear, here are some amazing, mouthwatering recipes:
Real Irish Soda Bread
Gone are the days of having dry, bland bread during St, Patrick’s Day. It’s time to make your own Irish soda bread. To bake this bread, you have to use a lot of baking soda and buttermilk to get that moist, rich loaf.
This bread will also be chewy and crusty. The key is in the stirring – the more you stir the dough, the more it’ll rise and make the crust smoother. So, stir until it looks perfect for baking! Round out your morning meal with some dippy eggs and your dreamy breakfast is ready to serve! Click here to look at more exciting recipes.
Easy Ham and Cheese Scones
Start your day with a simple ham and cheese scone. You can use the same batter as the blueberry lemon scones. Only, instead of fruits, pack these scones with cheese, ham, and scallions.
And before you put them in the oven for baking, sprinkle some shredded cheese on top. The scones will come out with a crisp, golden crust and smell so heavenly. We guarantee you won’t be able to keep your hands away!
They say the best bagels can be found only in New York City. While that may be true, however, that doesn’t mean you can’t bake a decent bagel right at home to satisfy your bagel cravings in the morning.
Not only are homemade bagels better, but they stay fresh for longer too (longer than the NYC ones!). Did we mention it’s also cheaper to make your own than buy one that tastes bad? Well, it is, so get in your baking zone and whip out some homemade bagels for your breakfast!
No-Knead English Muffins
While English muffins might technically not fall under baked goods, they’re still cooked on a stovetop, so we can take this into account. Our recipe is an old-fashioned one, but we assure you the results will be worth it.
Cooking the muffins on a stovetop ensures that the high heat gives them a beautifully crisp crust. You’ll also get plenty of nooks and crannies developing as well. Remember to coat the muffins with cornmeal before cooking them, it’ll help to protect the muffins from heat.
Delicious Buttermilk Biscuits
Making biscuits is all about technique. So, for our breakfast idea, we assure you these buttermilk biscuits will be easy to make. The key is to cut the butter into the flour very quickly. Use a food processor so that it doesn’t have time to melt.
Next, mix in the buttermilk with a spatula before laminating to add in extra layers. That’s the technique. The overall idea may sound plain, but you can add in your favorite ingredients like cheese, scallions, and honey to spice up your breakfast.
Breakfast Sausage, Mushroom, and Cheddar Rolls
For our last breakfast recipe idea, we’re offering a variation of what you know as a classic puff pastry. These wrapped sausage rolls have a beef Wellington twist to them thanks to the minced mushroom cooked in the sausage fat.
If you’re looking for something to balance the richness of the cheese and meat, then just add some creamy cheddar served with a side of mustard and that’s it. You have yourself a nice breakfast spread.
For the Sweet Tooth
For those who love to taste sweet items in breakfast, here are some delicious ideas that will satisfy that sweet tooth of yours:
Overnight Cinnamon Rolls
Now, a big baking project doesn’t sound like an interesting task to undertake right after you wake up. Thankfully, this breakfast idea is an overnight recipe.
So, for the ones who are big fans of overnight recipes, these cinnamon rolls are going to be a fun experience to make. To get started you first have to make the dough, shape it and mix the icing. Make sure to cover the shaped dough tightly. You can refrigerate these rolls for up to 24 hours.
In the morning, all you have to do is pop those in the oven and when they’re done, go crazy with your icing!
Classic Blueberry Muffins
Muffins are always sweet, they’re automatically a great addition to have in your breakfast. It’s almost like eating cake for breakfast, and we’re not complaining.
However, our recipe for these classic blueberry muffins might feel rich. With all the sugar that can end up covering the flavor of other mix-ins, this is where the blueberries come in and shine. Fresh blueberries can balance out the sugar and give your muffins the perfect taste.
But, if you like your muffins sweet, then you can sprinkle some sparkling sugar on top after baking.
Banana Bread With a Twist
A classic and a favorite for many, banana bread sounds amazing for a breakfast recipe. But the banana bread recipe we’ve got for you uses Greek yogurt instead of buttermilk or other acidic ingredients. This is because Greek yogurt is thicker, and gives the break a nice dome.
Another substitute we recommend for this recipe is using coconut oil. Since most banana breads are made using vegetable oil they tend to get heavy or sometimes greasy. So, if you want to avoid using vegetable oil, this is a great healthy substitute.
Blueberry Lemon Scones
The mixture of cream and butter can produce some yummy scones, but it’s also true that they can cover up the beautiful flavors of fresh fruit. Our recipe of blueberry lemon scones will make you taste them!
To let the blueberry and lemon shine through, we recommend replacing dairy with coconut oil and coconut milk. This is a great switch for those who are vegans and are looking for a nice breakfast recipe.
Always pick blueberries with tight skin as they pack the most intense flavor.
In conclusion, we would like to hope that our list of breakfast ideas will give you the push to try something new for your breakfast meals. Surprise your partner or give your kids a fresh change from the usual cereal and milk routine.
They’ll appreciate it and will also look forward to having breakfast as well. After all, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and you and your loved ones need to stay healthy. Let us know which ones you’re dying to try out and what you thought of it!
