Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day and there is no end to the breakfast options and variations of those options. Sometimes I plan ahead and make something special like Baked French Toast Casserole and sometimes something like Apple Pancake Perfection is exactly what the kids and I crave. There’s Buttermilk Corn Cakes with Blueberries or Star Shaped Eggs In Toast and Raspberry Oatmeal Scone for breakfast on the go.

Here are a couple more of my favourite breakfasts:


Oatmeal (This is another recipe inspired by my best friend, Paxye.)

  • 3 cups Milk (I use hemp, almond, rice…)
  • 1-2 tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 1 Apple, chopped (or peaches, blackberries, plums…)
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 cups Oats (not quick oats)
  • optional: Hemp seeds, Chia Seeds, chopped Walnuts…
  1. Slowly heat milk, syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg and apple until it is almost boiling. Turn heat down and add oats and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Fold in seeds or nuts before serving.

There are so many ways to make this oatmeal. Basically you need half as much oats as you use milk. You can add whatever fruit you wish. Sometimes I use berries and add them a bit later to the cooking process.


Eggs McDaddy

Eggs McDaddy

  • Bagel, toasted (or bread, english muffin)
  • 2 Eggs, scrambled (with cracked pepper and a pinch of salt, and/or curry powder…)
  • Ketchup
  • optional: mashed Avocado, Guacamole, sliced Tomato

I’ve been eating a version of this breakfast my whole life. It started with my dad making it, using english muffins instead of bagels so I can’t help but use the same name he used so long ago. There’s nothing difficult about making this breakfast and it’s so delicious!

    mmm. two of my favorites. It needs to get a little cooler before I can start enjoying oatmeal in the mornings again. But I love a good fried egg with cheese on an english muffin any time. yum.

  2. My fave was perfectly poached eggs on toast. Since losing my Hubby I really can’t eat them with joy as we did anymore.

    My other fave is fried egg on squished up avocado with a few random dollops of mayo and salsa on it. The trick is to soft fry the egg and make certain nothing is evenly spread! Yup Yup that is the trick!

    Mmmm…eggs and some sort of bread wins me over every time.

    My version is a fried egg with a bit of cheese melted on top, served between two slices of hot buttered toast, english muffin, bagel, croissant. YUM!

    Oatmeal is a huge favourite here too. Doesn’t matter on the season – Isaac wants it every morning. We don’t use milk…but toss in pecans, sunflower seeds, pumkin seeds and almond slivers along with chopped apricots and dried cranberries. Drizzled with a bit of flax oil and maple syrup and YUMMERS. Breakfast is such a great meal. I’m hungry. :)

    hmmmm. oatmeal is a big one for us, but we make it with water – i bet it’s so much better with milk! we eat it topped with yogurt, fruit, coconut, honey…we also eat a lot of eggs – eliza is our scrambled egg maker. pancakes happen once or twice a week as well, in various forms. not much to add, but i do love me some breakfast!!

    Fun!! I love the connection to your father in the second one. That makes them extra special, when it becomes like a comfort food, hey?

    I’ve never actually made oatmeal with anything other than water, (ssshhh!) and I must try it soon with the home made cahew milk we’re hoping to try out, or the other milks you suggested. We love slow cooked oats though and add everything in the cupboard or fruitbowl from organic candied ginger, currants, seeds, nuts coconut, raisins, figs, dates seasonal fresh fruit and berries. THEN we add the milk afterwards. I’m going to try it your way!

    These look yum Annie. I have to agree. Breakfast is my fav. meal. I have always loved oatmeal with fixins and eggs just about any way.
    Waffles have always been a family favorite. My mom used to make them every sunday morning. Now we have waffle wednesday around here. I found a great recipe that uses alternative flours. I use rice flour and rice milk. Sooooo yummy!
    I am going to have to try the hemp milk. Just got some hemp seeds for the first time a few weeks ago. Need to try them in my oatmeal!

  7. jenny says:

    Yum! They all sound amazing. I have a bunch of dried currants that we picked this summer that I have been dying to make scones with. Soon! We have two weekend breakfast standbys: Dutch Babies (like a giant crepe/pancake thing) and Migas (eggs with crumbled corn chips, tomatoes and peppers–a real TexMex dish) with refried white beans on the side. I also love to make chili rellenos but the giant amount of cheese always makes me feel gross… it’s a splurge breakfast!

    I love oatmeal too. Truthfully, I’m not much of a breakfast eater (I prefer just drinking tea) but I’m trying to change that about myself. I know a good breakfast is so good for you in so many ways. I’m going to follow your links to get some inspiration!

    Our current favs are scrambled tofu with hashbrowns and gingerbread waffles. Yum!

    Thanks for all the suggestions. I love breakfast too but it seems to be the hardest one for me. I find it hard sometimes when I get up in the morning to motivate myself to actually make something. I do love Paxye’s oatmeal though, and I’ve started making and freezing waffles. I hear the same can be done for french toast. I’m going to try some of your others too!

  11. Annie says:

    Mmmm…. Breakfast. I wish we could have each other over from breakfast each week and try all these different versions of breakfast.

    we called this a daddy Mc Muffin with a bagel at our house when I was a kid
