It’s Breakfast Week here at The Kitchn, a whole week devoted to that essential first meal of the day. We do this a couple times a year, and people always go wild! People just love breakfast. We do too, and so that’s why we’re bringing you a selection today of breakfasts to make your mornings easier and more delicious: Quick recipes like the yogurt breakfast banana split pictured above, and avocado toast and quick scrambled migas. But easy can also mean make-ahead, so we also have make-ahead breakfast bars, oatmeal in jars for breakfast on the go, and even DIY yogurt cups.

Come celebrate breakfast with us this week — start your day off right!
