Fluffy French Toast

Rating: 4.64 stars 4511
This French toast recipe is different because it uses flour. I have given it to some friends and they've all liked it better than the French toast they usually make!

Blueberry Lemon Breakfast Quinoa

Rating: 4.52 stars 117
Sweet blueberries and tart lemon pair well in this alternative to oatmeal. High in protein and fiber, quinoa is a great start to your day! I made this up one morning when I had a craving for quinoa and was looking for a change from the usual. Top with extra milk for a thinner consistency. Also good with a sprinkle of cinnamon or nutmeg.

Authentic Mexican Breakfast Tacos

Quick Easy and Delicious! I learned this recipe from many years of eating with the Mexican cooks at my restaurant. They like to sneak in breakfast before we open. I've grown to LOVE this breakfast. If you like spicy food, you will love this.

Bacon for the Family or a Crowd

Rating: 4.64 stars 829
This is the way to get crisp bacon without having to constantly turn it, watch over it, or get burnt by splatters of grease. It 'fries' up flat and doesn't curl, which looks great beside a breakfast plate of eggs, and makes BLT sandwiches much easier. Very nice when feeding a family or crowd.
