Comfort Food Breakfast and Brunch Recipes
From a weekday omelet to Sunday eggs Benedict, these luscious recipes deliver a morning repast of comfort and some fun new twists.
Comfort food isn't strictly reserved for dinnertime. Start your day with something warm and delicious to keep you fueled throughout the morning.
We'll start you off with our Fingerling Potato-Leek Hash with Swiss Chard and Eggs. To trim Swiss chard, pull or cut the stems out of the leaves. The dish goes from stovetop to tabletop using just one pan.
There is something about oatmeal that can't be matched when it comes to cozy comfort. Kick it up a notch by adding fresh blueberries to the pancake batter for an interesting twist.
Start your day with a warm and savory quiche that will keep you satisfied through the morning. Prep Tip: Chop vegetables, shred cheese, and cook bacon while the dough for the crust chills in the refrigerator.
For all the comfort of traditional eggs Benedict without the calories, we updated the classic with a mock hollandaise sauce. It's made from mayonnaise and buttermilk instead of clarified butter. Serve with steamed asparagus.
Decrease the heat by removing some or all of the jalapeño's seeds. You can make the sauce up to three days ahead; prepare through step 1, cool, cover, and refrigerate. Bring back to a gentle simmer before proceeding.
Moist yet crusty ciabatta and nutty Gruyère cheese set this dish apart from traditional French toast with an extra comforting twist. A vegetable peeler works great for getting thin slices out of the cheese. Rome or Fuji apples would also work.
Blindfolded eggs are a short-order cook’s version of poached eggs. The Garlic-Cheddar Grits in this recipe make a comfort-food-worthy bed for the perfectly cooked eggs.
Sour cream enriches these yeasted doughnut holes. Enjoy them for breakfast or dessert. Sugarcoat it: Omit the maple glaze and dip the doughnut holes in a mixture of granulated sugar and ground cinnamon for more texture.
With one-third less sodium than the fast-food breakfast muffin, ours has a lot more going for it—you can make it fresh at home in less than 15 minutes. Add a glass of orange juice and you're ready to begin your day on a healthy note.
Comforting bread pudding becomes a main dish instead of dessert by using savory rather than sweet ingredients. Preparing it in individual ramekins gives it a dressier feel and shortens cooking time.
