Waffle Iron Hash Browns

For hash browns that are crisp on the outside and buttery on the inside, look no further than your multifaceted waffle iron. Since the waffle iron cooks the hash browns simultaneously on both sides, you get to skip the fuss of flipping while still achieving perfectly golden crusts on each side. Try a dollop of Greek yogurt and a sprinkle of chives on top, or serve them with a fried egg and a dash of hot sauce for the ultimate breakfast or brunch.

Overnight Bulgur Bowls

Your morning will be a (tasty) breeze after you prep these bulgur bowls the night before. Simply roll out of bed and top the whole-grain goodness with your favorite toppings. Go savory with kale, chicken, and pear, or go sweet with apples, almond butter, and goat cheese.
