Stuffed Breakfast Peppers — What's Cooking, Mexico? I have mentioned before that for me breakfast is the most important meal of the day because: 1) my parents always made me eat breakfast before school, even if that meant waking up at 5:00 am when my first class was at 7:00 am, and 2) the health benefits of starting your day with a delicious meal are many. However, there doesn’t seem to be as many ideas for breakfast as there are for lunches and dinners out there. That’s why I am always trying to come up with new things to make my breakfasts more exciting. Because, let’s face it, if your breakfast is not exciting, it is easier to skip it or opt for a less healthier option at the drive-thru or doughnut shop.

Shakshuka - Recipe for Delicious Middle Eastern Egg Dish When I say the word shakshuka, people often give me a strange look… like I’ve sneezed, or something. I get excited when I see that look– it means they don’t know what the heck shakshuka is, which means they have no idea what they’re missing out on. If you aren’t familiar with shakshuka, I’m thrilled to introduce the concept to you! It’s one of my favorite dishes—a simple, go-to meal that works as a breakfast, lunch, or dinner (“brinner” might be the more appropriate word, since eggs are the star of the dish). I always have the ingredients for shakshuka on hand, and it never fails to make people say “yum!” In Israel shakshuka is often eaten for breakfast, but I usually find myself serving it with a side salad as a light evening meal.
French Toast Egg-in-a-Hole Whenever I’m out to brunch, or even if I’m making it at home, I have a really hard time choosing between sweet and savory. Luckily, I’ve got a special — yet weekday-ready — breakfast that’s both, and pretty much perfect any time of day. This tasty recipe combines two favorites into one: egg-in-a-hole and French toast! For ease, the recipe is baked, so no need to stand over a hot stove. And with a parchment lining on your baking sheet, cleanup is a snap.
Eggs and Tomato Breakfast Melts I'm in love with these easy open faced breakfast sandwiches made on a whole wheat English muffin with egg whites and scallions, then topped with heirloom tomatoes and melted cheese - mmm! Tomatoes, eggs and scallions are always a winning combination for me - especially now when summer tomatoes are at their sweetest! If you can't find heirloom tomatoes, red grape tomatoes or cherry tomatoes would be just as great.

A Two Bite Breakfast: Bacon & Eggs in Toast Cups * Updated post from archive: Originally posted March 29, 2009 If you where to ask me what is my favorite meal of the day without a thought my response would be breakfast! I love breakfast! Grilled Cheese with Pesto Grilled cheese with pesto. Do it, and you won’t regret it. Even my 84-year-old grandma who literally wrote a cookbook about delicious appetizers thinks this combo is the bee’s knees. I always use Tillamook Extra Sharp cheddar cheese and my mom’s homemade bread (which she sells at the Corvallis Farmers’ Market on Saturdays). While the food-processor method for making pesto does the trick, I’ve been having fun chopping everything with just a big knife, kinda like in this video by Tiger in a Jar (though not quite so pretty).
Chicken Lentil Soup — Dinner Recipes from The Kitchn For me, especially when I'm focusing on my health or losing weight, there is nothing more comforting than having many containers of this nourishing, delicious, filling lentil soup with chicken stashed away in the freezer. Lentil soup is actually the very first dish I learned to cook, and I am still amazed at how easy it is to make something so much better than you get from a can. I'm also sentimental about this soup, so it will probably always be among my favorite things to make. I do prefer using bacon fat here—I spend extra on premium bacon so I always strain and save the rendered fat for making this soup.
