Lighter American Breakfasts
Here are dishes that fit any morning routine, whether you're in need of a quick weekday smoothie or a more decadent weekend brunch. But each is made just a little bit healthier, and that feels just right.
First, enjoy bit of crunch in the morning with a serving of All-American Granola.
Sweetened with maple syrup and studded with dried cherries and sliced almonds, this pantry staple is easy to customize. Try dried blueberries, cranberries, or even apples, and maybe even a little flaxseed for fiber. Or toss with fresh berries before serving.
This hash is a Yankee tradition, so called, some say, for its colors, which resemble a red flannel shirt. It’s customarily served the morning after a New England boiled dinner, when there's plenty of leftover corned beef and potatoes. Our version combines roasted beets and potatoes with a small portion of corned beef for a lighter take on the original.
