Recipe: Cheezy Tofu Breakfast Scramble
There’s certainly a time and place for brunch as we love to think of it: those big, decadent carb fests where you can wear loungewear in public. We’re probably better off keeping those for special-occasion weekends, though. For a more typical brunch — one that looks more like breakfast and less like dessert — we love to stay in and keep it savory. (But still wear loungewear, obviously.

This Is the Most Popular Casserole Dish on Everyone’s Wedding Registry
You can learn a lot about a couple by stalking, I mean looking at, their wedding registry. How else are you going to find out if they prefer drip coffee to espresso, what color their fluffy bathroom hand towels will be, and if they ever plan to host a holiday? It’s an absolute gold mine of information. Recently while mining for even more information, we asked our friends at Zola, an online wedding registry platform, for some insider intel on the latest registry trends.

Recipe: Finnish Fruit Soup
It might seem a little crazy to use dried fruit to make this recipe, especially when we have such easy access to fresh fruit and berries almost year round. Yet dried fruit really does make the best base for this unique “soup.” You can serve it cold on its own, but we prefer it warmed up atop a bowl of rice pudding. Briana and Andrew Volk are the owners of Portland Hunt + Alpine Club and Little Giant in Portland, Maine. They live in Maine with their two children.

The Whole30 Recipe That I Still Make Every Single Sunday
One of the things I took away from trying the Whole30 diet a few years ago was the importance of breakfast — specifically eggs. I was constantly searching for easy, make-ahead egg recipes for the busy mornings when there just wasn’t enough time to make breakfast from scratch. Although I’m not on Whole30 anymore, there are a few recipes that I still make from that time on a regular basis.

How To Make the Easiest Eggs Benedict
I have friends that will triple-check brunch menus before we head out to make sure they serve eggs Benedict. It’s not that they’re that obsessed with eggs Benedict that they won’t eat anything else (at least, I’m guessing), but more that they’re sure they’re never going to make the dish at home — and so going out to eat is the only way to enjoy it.

The Quick Oatmeal Upgrade I Use Every Single Morning
I've been eating oatmeal most mornings for more than 10 years — but until recently, I'd always made it the same way.

The 8 Essential Methods for Cooking Eggs (All in One Place)
Mastering the essential ways to cook an egg will serve you well time and time again. On mornings (or evenings) when you don’t feel like digging up a recipe, knowing how to poach, scramble, soft-boil, and more means you can whip up a meal in next to no time at all. Spend a few weeks trying them all — you might just discover you have a new favorite way to prepare your eggs. Comforting and kid-friendly, a soft scramble is there for you when you need a warm and familiar meal.

5 Nutritionist-Approved Breakfast Foods to Buy at Costco
If you’ve been reading my stories on Kitchn, you are probably well aware that I have mad love for all things Costco. I’ve figured out where to look for the healthy, organic finds. And don’t even get me started on their home and kitchen bargains! Recently, as I was strolling through the store, I spotted several fabulous new finds in the frozen and refrigerated sections that make perfect breakfast options.

The Only Thing You Have to Remember for the Best-Ever Frittata
Frittatas are meant to be scrappy — filled with odds and ends from your produce and cheese drawers. They’re a great way to practice cooking with your gut and all five senses, using your eyes and ears and nose and touch and taste to determine when the veggies are cooked, the eggs are set, and so forth. So the next time you make one, I encourage you to ditch the recipe (or, use it solely as a point of inspiration), and just remember this one simple rule instead.

Recipe: Hawaiian Roll Egg-in-a-Hole
Meet my new favorite brunch dish: Hawaiian Roll Egg-in-a Hole. You might be familiar with egg-in-a-hole as a beloved childhood breakfast dish, but this version is easier to cook for a crowd, and delivers big on flavor. Serve this egg bake for family brunch, or whip it up when you’re feeding a hungry crowd. Here are my tricks for nailing it every time. At first glance, this recipe is pretty straightforward: Make a well in each roll, crack in an egg, and bake!

Recipe: Spinach Artichoke Frittata
Frittatas have long been my go-to solution anytime I need to use up the sad-looking produce, wilting herbs, and little nubs of cheese in my fridge. It’s not often I make them with a plan — until now. Inspired by my favorite cheesy dip and the warm spring weather, I came up with a frittata loaded with garlicky marinated artichoke hearts, earthy baby spinach, salty Parm, and rich sour cream. I knew it would be good, but it went above and beyond all of my expectations.

A Cozy, Mellow New Year’s Day Brunch at Home
Every year we tell you to skip the fancy prix-fixe menus and crowded restaurants in favor of a home-cooked meal on New Year’s Eve. But the same advice rings true for New Year’s Day brunch. Instead of waiting two hours to spend $20 on a plate of French toast, you can host a cozy, festive gathering from the comfort of your own home (in your pajamas, if that’s your thing).

Make Weekend Mornings Delicious with Orange-Ginger Pancakes
If you’re like me, you have dreams of delicious holiday breakfasts, leisurely eaten while wearing cozy sheep’s wool slippers and gazing out the window at the snow gently falling outside. I want that, but I also want easy — and I need gluten-free. I celebrate the holidays with my family, and some folks in our gang cannot have gluten.

Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal Is the Best Thing to Eat for Breakfast
Kitchn’s Delicious Links column highlights recipes we’re excited about from the bloggers we love. Follow along every weekday as we post our favorites. Never let anybody insult pumpkin spice. Calling that spicy autumn combination of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves “basic” is like calling vanilla “plain.” Few things in the world are as appetizing as the scent of fall pie spices.

Recipe: Ottolenghi’s Braised Eggs with Leek and Za’atar
If you love poached or gently baked eggs as much as I do, this all-day egg skillet will be right up your alley. The yolky eggs and chunks of soft, briny feta make it a touch indulgent, but there’s just enough wilted spinach to keep it feeling light. But what makes this recipe stand out (and the a-ha moment I will most definitely borrow for many other meals) is the oil-kissed za’atar spice that’s brushed over the eggs right before serving.

Chicken Sausage, Egg & Cheese Muffins Are Meal Prep Marvels
The appeal of muffins is undeniable. A delicious treat that can be eaten with one hand on the go — what more could you want?

This Is the Cleverest Way to Eat a Leftover Frittata
The merits of a simple frittata are many, including the fact that it makes ideal leftovers! Not only can this baked egg skillet be cooked up with whatever veggies, cheese, or meat you have handy, but you can also count on it to hold up quite well in the fridge for days. You could eat the leftovers as is, but I have a much, much better idea for you! Even if you have just a small slice, this is the most ingenious way to eat a leftover frittata.

The base of this breakfast bowl is farro, but you can also use brown rice or quinoa instead.

10 Surprising Ways to Eat Crescent Rolls for Breakfast
Crescent roll dough is the store-bought shortcut I lean on for easy breakfasts. The buttery, flaky dough is so versatile that I can use it in sweet and savory ways. Sure, the rolls make a great sidekick to dinner, but just wait until you see what the dough can bring to the breakfast table. Crescent roll dough is a blank canvas just waiting to get shaped, cut, rolled, and stuffed with all of your favorite savory and sweet ingredients.

The One Thing I Always Do When Hosting Overnight Guests
For whatever reason, my husband and I host a lot of weekend guests at our house. I’d like to think it’s because our friends enjoy our company, but realistically it’s probably because our house — just two hours away from New York City — gives city folk a nice taste of the country life. (Or maybe it’s a mix of both? That’s what I’m going to tell myself!

This Easy Breakfast Casserole Is Full of Vegetables
After spending the last few days (or weeks, possibly a month) eating holiday food loaded with calories and all the extra-decadent things that make that time of year so special, it’s always nice to find a dish that is still full of color and helps cut down on the hours spent on the treadmill. This breakfast casserole is exactly that — it’s full of freshness with a flaky crust and fit to feed a family!

7 Things I Never Do When Making Pancakes
Pancakes are a weekly ritual at my house, so I have very strong opinions about how pancakes are made. These opinions often get directed toward my kids or husband when they try to help mix, fry, or flip a batch of pancakes. This pancake practice has given me a sense of authority on the virtues and pitfalls of hot-cake commandments, so here are the seven things I never, ever do to my pancakes. You’ve got to start pancakes with serving in mind, because cold pancakes won’t do.

This Spaghetti Squash Shakshuka Is Brunch Goals
Shakshuka is already a brunch superstar. I mean, does it get any better than perfectly poached eggs in a spiced tomato sauce, topped with plenty of herbs and feta cheese? Yes, it does — if you add spaghetti squash to the mix, that is. Winter squash is back at the market, which means it’s time to sneak it into every dish imaginable — starting with this shakshuka.

This kit comes together with a trio of fruit, a hit of greens, plus a liquid of your choice when it’s time to blend. Here’s what you’ll need.

This 5-Ingredient, 5-Minute Skillet Granola Is a Breakfast Win
Homemade granola is one of life’s simple pleasures. Sure, you could buy the store-bought stuff, but nothing really compares to a batch you make yourself. Usually making granola requires a bit of forethought and time, though — unless you’re making this stovetop version. With only five ingredients you can have crisp, sweet granola in five minutes. While I love making a big batch of granola in the oven on a leisurely Sunday afternoon, I don’t always have that luxury.

10 Easy Chicken Casseroles for Busy Weeknights
As summer draws to a close, you’ll want to pull out your casserole dishes that have been stashed away in the back of a cupboard all season. There’s nothing like a creamy, cheesy casserole to warm you up on a chilly evening. And because everything — protein, starch, and veggies — cooks in one pan, a casserole is the perfect meal for busy weeknights. Here are 10 favorite chicken casseroles to make for dinner this fall.

How Traveling Through Scandinavia Changed the Way I Eat Breakfast
While traveling through Iceland, Denmark, Sweden, and Norway last summer on my honeymoon, I fell in love with breakfast. This was definitely not the breakfast I knew back home in the South, which consisted of hearty dishes like fried chicken and waffles, biscuits smothered in sausage gravy, and Bloody Marys garnished with bacon and every pickled vegetable under the sun. In Scandinavia I was enamored of the lighter, healthier fare — cozy bowls of porridge, smörgås, and gravlax.

Make a Perfect Stack of Blueberry Pancakes This Weekend
When’s the last time you made pancakes? Whether you’re hosting friends for brunch or making breakfast for your family, pancakes are often a special treat reserved for the weekend. This is not yogurt eaten hastily at your desk or a granola bar scarfed on the train to work — this is a fluffy stack of pancakes that took time to prepare, and they should be slowly savored.

All Scrambled Eggs Should Be Served in Avocado Halves from Now On
Avocado and eggs are a match made in heaven. You’ve probably had avocado toast with poached eggs on top, or scrambled egg tacos with guacamole, but these scrambled eggs served in avocado halves might just take the cake. I mean, look how cute they are! The recipe for this scramble features butter, Canadian bacon, eggs, and white cheddar, but you should feel free to customize it. That’s the beauty of egg scrambles, right? They’re so versatile!

Recipe: Strawberry Honey Butter
When strawberries are in season, it’s hard not to inhale the cartons you bring home immediately before even thinking about what else you’ll do with them. I encourage you, however, to put some aside to make this butter — rich with all that fruity flavor, enhanced by honey and orange zest, and just begging to be slathered on toast or biscuits and melted all over your pancakes and waffles.

Top Your Toast with Roasted Pineapple & Whipped Ricotta
A slice of toast for breakfast is nothing new, but this recipe for toast with whipped ricotta and roasted pineapple sure is. The crunchy bread, the creamy ricotta, the sweet pineapple — this is how you start your day off on the right foot. To make the caramelized pineapple, you’ll need either some pineapple rings or chopped pineapple. Place it on a parchment-lined baking sheet, drizzle it with honey, and roast at a high heat until it’s nice and golden.

These Frozen Yogurt Pops Make Breakfast Fun & Easy
Yogurt with fruit and granola is a pretty common breakfast dish, but sometimes all it takes is one clever tweak to transform the everyday combination into something whimsical and fun. In this case, I’m talking about making ice pops! If you’re looking to stock your freezer for the warmer months ahead with a cooling breakfast or snack to grab on the go, this is the perfect recipe for you.

Twin Peaks Is Actually an Ode to Breakfast Foods
Twin Peaks, the cult-classic TV series that premiered in 1990 and was canceled (prematurely, if you ask me) after only two seasons, is returning to Showtime on Sunday, May 21. David Lynch is once again bringing us back to the quirky town of Twin Peaks, population 51,201. The central question of the show — who killed Laura Palmer? — was answered in season two, but these new episodes promise more mystery and intrigue. One thing we can certainly count on? A lot of coffee. And donuts.

A Last-Minute Mother’s Day Brunch That You Can Throw Together in the Morning
So you’re hosting Mother’s Day brunch and, for whatever reason, you’re down to the wire with barely a plan in place. Mom is coming over in just a few hours and you haven’t put one thought into what to make. Don’t worry — you still have time to pull this off.

Un Cafecito, Por Favor: 5 Recipes to Help You Do Breakfast, Cuban-Style
It always starts with coffee, doesn’t it? When you’re introduced to a new food, a new way of eating, a new culture and its cuisine, there are so many gateways, but for me it always seems to be coffee. Sooty and astringent in Turkey, café bonbóns in Spain, and then giant saucers of café con leche in a now-closed Cuban restaurant — La Rosita — that used to sit on Broadway and 108th.

Start This Batter Tonight for the Best Waffles Tomorrow Morning
Tomorrow is International Waffle Day, which means it’s pretty much mandatory that you kick off your Saturday with a batch of waffles. But don’t wait to pull out your flour and milk until tomorrow morning — start the batter tonight and let it rest for truly exquisite results. Mixing some of the ingredients tonight — water, honey, yeast, flour, butter, salt, and milk — is like a little gift to your future self.

This Is What Cajun Food Really Looks Like
If a Cajun woman makes a pancake, does that mean it’s a Cajun pancake? That’s an ongoing joke in my home. With the commercialization of Cajun, it appears that anything can be Cajun. Truth is, there are so many different versions of Cajun and everyone’s Cajun breakfast table is different. This is mine. I grew up on Bayou Petite Calliou in Chauvin, Louisiana. I am one of six kids, and my mama, Maxine, cooked us breakfast every morning.

How I Fell Out of Love with My Stand Mixer
I remember the day I opened my KitchenAid mixer: The box was the biggest thing under the Christmas tree that year, and (for once) I had no guesses as to what was inside. You see, I had come to terms with the fact that I probably wouldn’t get the kitchen essential until I got married — to a person I didn’t even know existed yet.

A Hearty Fruit Salad Is What You Should Eat Instead of a Smoothie Bowl
Regardless of whether you love a smoothie bowl or think that this tasty trend should end, tucking into a nourishing bowl of something other than cold cereal or warm oatmeal is sometimes just the thing you need to start your day off right. Enter: the hearty fruit salad. Think of this as a grain bowl meets fruit salad, with enough whole grains and fresh fruit to keep you full until lunch and a punchy vinaigrette gilding the whole thing.

Eating Breakfast Has Made My Life Happier, Healthier, and a Little More Magical
I love breakfast food. Sweet muffins, crispy waffles, fluffy pancakes, piping-hot scrambled eggs, crispy bacon, and buttery English muffins are some of my most craved meals. Growing up, my family would sit around the table — or, if we were really lucky, the Friendly’s in town — for the aptly titled Special Breakfast on Sunday mornings. It felt like stolen time.

Beyond Continental: Our 3 Favorite Free Hotel Breakfasts

Here’s a look at three top-notch (free!) breakfast spreads available across the country. All hotel guests can take advantage of free cooked-to-order breakfast options, which a spokesperson calls an “approachable, upscale experience.

Say No to Mug Cakes, but Yes to Mug Omelets
There is something supremely comforting about eating food from a mug. And when it can be cooked in the very same mug, it has the potential to feel like a tiny victory. The internet surely thinks so — mug food, like cakes and omelets, have been buzzing for years. This year I let curiosity get the best of me and entered the Pinterest-loving world of mug cakes and mug omelets. I approached it with an open heart, an open mind, and a heavy dose of skepticism.

7 Ways to Make the Most of Your Hotel’s Breakfast Buffet
The free breakfast buffet is one of the purest pleasures of the hotel experience. This is not necessarily because it is unusually good, in any common definition of the word. While there are exceptions — I have experienced exceptions! — the breakfast buffet at a mid-range hotel is almost certainly some degree of mediocre. The bagels will not be the best possible bagels; the fruit is unlikely to be the best possible fruit.

Danger! This Is How You Should Cut Your Morning Bagel.
A few years ago I learned a disturbing fact about bagels: In 2008, 1,979 people went to the emergency room due to a BRI (bagel-related injury), according to the Wall Street Journal. Apparently chicken-related injuries were more common (with 3,463 visits), but this stat still really messed with my head. All those people had their mornings ruined because they lost the battle against their everything bagel. Maybe make everything bagel bread instead?

The 3-Step Method for Easier-to-Peel Hard-Boiled Eggs
Every Sunday I make a batch of hard-boiled eggs and stash them in the fridge to turn into quick breakfasts, lunches, and snacks throughout the week. Cooking the eggs is no problem, but peeling them can be a tedious chore. Over the years, I found that three factors make an egg easier to peel: the age of the eggs, the cooking method, and the cooling method. Here are my steps for easier-to-peel hard-boiled eggs. “What do my egg choices have to do with easy-to-peel hard-boiled eggs?

Croissant Bread Pudding Is the Ultimate Brunch Win
If you’re hosting brunch this weekend, promise me you’ll stop at your local bakery and pick up some croissants today. Leave them out to get a little stale, and then use them to make the best bread pudding ever. With a sweet berry sauce and rich custard, this bread pudding is sure to impress your brunch guests. While it does take a little work to whip up the aforementioned sauce and custard, buying the croissants instead of making your own saves you major time in the kitchen.

Recipe: Eggnog Waffles with Spiced Whipped Cream
Last year we hosted family at our house on Christmas Day — all with a brand new baby.

So I started playing around with interesting, festive waffle recipes and landed on this incredibly tasty, fragrant eggnog waffle dressed up for the occasion with spiced whipped cream and a dusting of cinnamon.

Here’s What NASA’s Mars-Bound Astronauts Will Eat for Breakfast
After decades of research and dispatching exploration spacecrafts to Mars, NASA has an ambitious goal of sending humans to the planet sometime in the 2030s. The voyage to the Red Planet will be the first of its kind and, if successful, it will take astronauts aboard the Orion spacecraft further than humans have ever gone before. A journey of this nature has many obstacles, one of which is the issue of food.

The Best Way to Keep Pancakes and Waffles Warm
Arguably the trickiest part of making big-batch breakfasts of pancakes and waffles is delivering everything to the table at the same time, still warm and just as good as it is right off the griddle. But it’s totally possible, and actually pretty easy to pull off when you’ve got this strategy up your sleeve. To keep waffles and pancakes in pristine condition before the whole lot of them are ready to head to the table, you’ll need a baking sheet, a cooling rack, and a warm oven.

Marshmallows on Sweet Potatoes: Who Thought This Up Anyway?
When it comes to holiday meals, I am all about the side dishes. I would happily forgo the turkey, ham, or centerpiece protein altogether in favor of a panoply of starchy, gooey goodness to pile on my plate. And I’m no side dish snob. At Thanksgiving, I crave unpretentious dishes like green bean casseroles, corn puddings, and mashed potatoes choking beneath a pool of butter and gravy. There is, however, one notable exception to my love of traditional Thanksgiving sides.

4 Unexpected Meals You Can Bake in a Bundt Pan
If you have a Bundt cake pan that gathers dust in the back of the kitchen cabinet, pull this decorative pan out and use it in your everyday cooking. Remember, it’s still essentially a baking pan, so you can use it for way more than dessert and chocolate cake. Here are four savory ways to bake with a Bundt pan.
