Not Your Average Breakfast Ideas – 25 Ways to Start Your Day

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It is also one of the most challenging around here. We are always in such a huge rush to get out the door that we rarely have time to eat something other than cereal. That can be a very boring and repetitive meal after a while. This year I am making it my goal to bake more foods and prepare more items early in the week. These unique breakfast ideas can help you change it up a bit.

If you like these you will love Overnight and Makeahead Breakfast Ideas too.


These 25 unique breakfast ideas are sure to be a hit. I am loving all the ones with egg in them because egg is great protein any time of the day. Can’t wait to try one or two of the yummy breakfasts with latin flare here too. These are not that hard to make and sometimes you can manage to shave off some time by preparing parts of the recipe, or even the entire recipe the night before. Have a weekly baking session and prepare some of these in advance and your crew will be forever grateful.
