I have 9 of the best quick and easy breakfast recipes to be found. Now you can eat something different for breakfast that’s still quick to make. I set out to make this list of easy breakfast recipes as a personal quest. I’m so sick of plain eggs and bacon for breakfast – and my children are too. We needed some breakfast recipes that weren’t too much effort. It turned out to be really hard to come up with this list because everyone’s definition of quick and easy is so different. But for me, the quicker the better. So, I tried to find the quickest and the easiest recipes I could.
I also tried to have a variety of easy breakfast recipes. I mean, I could fill this whole post up with smoothie recipes, but that wouldn’t be very useful, especially if you don’t do smoothies.
Plenty of recipes are really easy, but they don’t taste all that good. So this is my attempt to find a middle road between insanely good, but not an insane amount of work. These recipes had to be good tasting but super quick. I hope you like my list. I would love it if you would leave some suggestions in the comments. Tell me about the easy breakfast recipes you enjoy at your house.

Easy Breakfast Recipes
1. Basic Chia Seed Pudding – Gluten Free Daddy
This is one of the easiest breakfasts you’ll ever make but be warned. You have to be organized because you need to make it the night before and put it in the frig to do its thing. That only takes 5 minutes though. In the morning it’s all ready to just take out of the frig and eat. To be totally honest, I haven’t always liked chia pudding but when I found this recipe, I changed my mind.
2. Breakfast Sliders – Mom Endeavors
Hawaiian Rolls – Eggs – Provolone Cheese – Ham – Butter – Mustard – Brown Sugar
You can’t get much easier than this. Buying a package of rolls, cutting them in half, placing scrambled eggs, ham and cheese in the middle. Then baking them in the oven for 10 minutes to melt the cheese. They made a whole package of rolls for a crowd but you could do it easy with just three or four, or how ever many you need. A toaster oven would work just as good for a smaller amount. They combined the butter, mustard and brown sugar, melted it and brushed it on top. I don’t know I can’t imagine brown sugar and mustard on top for me. The sweetness throws me off. Go ahead and try it and let me know if you like it.
3. French Toast in a Mug – Princess Pinky Girl
This is an especially easy breakfast especially if you are cooking for only one or two people. Make sure you follow the directions closely so it doesn’t explode in your microwave. There’s nothing much easier than putting 5 ingredients in a mug and zapping it in the microwave. Of course the chocolate chips are optional. Make sure you use enough bread so it isn’t soggy. It might take a little experimenting to get that right since slices of bread are not all the same size. Sounds to me like the bigger the better, for this one.
4. Easiest 5-Ingredient German Oven Pancake – Inspiring Cooks
Butter – Eggs – Flour – Milk – Real Salt
My aunt introduced us to these German pancakes years ago and they have been one of my favorite breakfast recipes ever since. They are so easy to make. You just take 5 ingredients and mix them up in the blender. Then you bake them in the oven. I know it takes almost half an hour for them to bake but it’s down time. I don’t have to do anything to them while they bake. And I don’t need to make anything else for breakfast unless I want to have some fruit or something like that with them. I like to make them for a large group because I think they’re a lot easier than cooking up a bunch of pancakes. You might of heard about them as puffy oven pancakes or dutch baby German pancake but my Aunt calls them German pancakes so that’s what I call them.
5. Ham and Cheese Breakfast Quesadillas Recipe – Little Dairy on the Prairie
Tortilla Shells – Butter – Boiled Eggs – Ham – Swiss Cheese – Cheddar Cheese
I love how quickly these can be made especially of the eggs are already hard boiled. My favorite part about these breakfast quesadillas are that they can be customized to the different tastes of each person in the family. Or Not, that’s up to me. I can make them with pretty much anything I darn well please. Other options could be sausage, mushrooms, avocado, onions or bacon. I like the ham though because it’s faster.
6. Ham, Egg, and Cheese Biscuit Wafflewiches – Southern Bite
Refrigerator Biscuits – Eggs – Cheddar Cheese – Ham
These biscuits turned waffle look like so much fun to make to me. I really want to try making these real soon. What could be faster and easier than opening a package of biscuits, flattening them out, piling scrambled eggs, ham and cheese on top. Then putting another layer of flattened biscuits on top and cooking in the waffle iron. I like how I can cook the top and bottom at the same time, that makes it twice as fast. I bet it would work in a quesadilla maker too with tortillas instead of biscuits. Try it an let me know if it works.
7. French Toast Sausage Roll-Ups – Tastes Better From Scratch
These sausage roll ups are a yummy twist on regular old french toast. They are fun to make and easy to eat. Kids especially love these and they have a lot of fun helping make them. They are a fun finger food and that’s what kid’s love. What’s not to love about french toast with a sausage rolled inside, dipped in maple syrup. Well, my mother would beg to differ. She actually doesn’t like french toast at all and she hates maple syrup. I don’t know how that happened because I love french toast and adore maple syrup.
8. Breakfast Taquitos – Tastes Better from Scratch
Sausage Links – Eggs – Shredded Cheese – Spinach Leaves – Tortilla of choice
Here is another recipe that’s sort of similar and yet quite a bit different. My mother would love these. What’s not to like about scrambled eggs, sausage link and cheese rolled up inside a tortilla, served with salsa on top. If you have a little extra time you might want to add some mushrooms. Come on, make up your own recipe. It’s kind of fun.
9. Avocado and Egg in a Hole – Tastes Better From Scratch
Slice of Bread – Eggs – Avocado – Butter – Cheddar Cheese
This breakfast has several different names. Some people call it “Toad in a Hole”, some call it “Egg in a Basket”. The traditional “Egg in a Hole” doesn’t have avocado in it. But I think adding cheese and avocado makes it so much better. Kids love it and so do adults. It’s so easy and it’s good with some salsa piled on top. I guess I’ve been living in a cave, because I’ve never heard of this before personally. Maybe you haven’t heard of it either. Have you?
