Thanksgiving Breakfast Ideas


I can’t think of any morning of the year that I am more hungry than Thanksgiving day. With all of the delicious aromas going on, cereal is out of the question. My family would disown me if I plopped down a box of cereal on Thanksgiving. I have several favorite Thanksgiving meals that I prepare from simple and quick to make ahead dishes. Today I’d like to share a couple of my recipes with you and I hope that if you try them, you’ll let me know how your family responded. They have enough ingredients to satisfy any palette and they’ve been a hit for many of our Thanksgiving day breakfast meals.

The first one is the easiest one that the kids enjoy helping me prepare:

Thanksgiving scrambled eggs:
Sour Cream
Salt & Pepper

I cook my onions in a little bit of butter (until they are clear) and add in my scrambled eggs, mushrooms, salt & pepper and a dash of parsley. Once they are finished cooking (don’t over cook them), I add a slice of tomato, a dash of parsley (yes again) and a dollop of sour cream (and yet another little dash of parsley). They are delicious and filling which helps curb the appetite of kids and adults alike until our noon Thanksgiving meal is complete. I have been known to add cheese to this dish as well.

My next Thanksgiving meal suggestion is a do ahead quiche that is out of this world delightful. Do not be intimidated by making quiche if this is your first one. Sometimes mine look pretty and sometimes they don’t but they ALWAYS taste amazing.

Thanksgiving bacon, egg and cheese quiche:

I generally make my own pie crusts but you don’t have to. You don’t even have to use a pie crust if you want to make a crust-less quiche.

Pie Crust
8-12 Pieces Bacon
4-6 Eggs
1 Cup Cheddar Cheese (I didn’t have enough shredded cheddar cheese with the below quiche so I added sliced cheese under the shredded cheese layer, no one knew the difference except me)
1 cup Milk
Salt & Pepper

Go ahead and fry your bacon, crumble it, and then mix everything together (except the cheese) and add it all to the pie crust. Layer the top with cheese. Yes, that’s it. See, I told you you didn’t have to be intimidated by quiche’s. They are super easy and packed with flavor. You could make it up ahead of time and store it in the fridge or you can go ahead and pop it in a preheated oven (350°F) for about an hour.

  1. This makes me wish I could eat eggs more often … I love them but my body hates them ever since I turned 30, three years ago. They just never settled so I can eat them maybe once a month or twice, without paying for it. I will try to make these up for the family though. Wonderful idea for a family breakfast!

  2. Oh wow, I make eggs like that, but I never thought of putting the sour cream in there. I have never made Quiche before, and breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. I bet I can do that… well, trial and error is what they say right? Thanks for sharing.
