Quick-Fix Breakfast for Supper
Switch things up at dinnertime with these satisfying egg, pancake, and waffle recipes.
Hot Chicken-and-Waffle Sandwiches
Recipe: Breakfast Enchiladas
Who says enchiladas are just for dinner? You and your entire family won't be able to resist this decadent breakfast casserole. It’s flavored with bold Mexican flavors, like fresh red bell peppers, salsa verde, fresh cilantro, and chopped avocado. The cheese sauce comes together with only six ingredients, and helps take this crowd-pleasing casserole to the next level in flavor and fill. Remove eggs from stovetop while they're still a bit wet; they'll finish cooking in the oven. To make this a day ahead, go through Step 2; cover and chill the casserole. Let stand at room temperature about 20 minutes before baking.
Creamy Baked Eggs with Herbs and Bacon
Make this savory one pan dish a complete meal and serve with toasted bread and a leafy green side salad.
Golden Potato-and-Smoked Sausage Hash
Recipe: Golden Potato-and-Smoked Sausage Hash
Make this hash even heartier by adding a fried egg on top. Speed up cooking time by using parboiled potatoes from your grocer's freezer section. Add them in at Step 3.
Recipe: Spinach-and-Cheese Omelet
Omelets cook quickly in the skillet. Let your kids pick their own veggie and meat toppings or stick with straight cheese. Serve with fresh fruit and buttered toast.
Pam-Cakes with Buttered Honey Syrup
These are our Food staff's favorite fluffy buttermilk flapjacks, and they are sure to become your family’s favorite too. We named them after their creator, Test Kitchen Pro Pam Lolley. Plan to drench these cakes with our easy honey syrup or your favorite bottled variety. Complete the meal with fruit and bacon or sausage.
Recipe: Tomato-Herb Frittata
The secret to this recipe is an ovenproof nonstick pan, which allows the eggs to cook properly, keeps them from sticking, and simplifies cleanup.
Sunny Breakfast Skillet
Recipe: Sunny Breakfast Skillet
Homemade shredded potatoes, butter, bell peppers, onion, and garlic – it’s a complete meal in one skillet. Sunny-side up eggs top off the meal. Pop some whole wheat bread or English muffins in the toaster, and this one-dish breakfast is served. We bet that your family will like it so much that they’ll ask request it for dinner, too. Pressed for time? Instead of baking and shredding the potatoes yourself, use storebought frozen hash browns. Looking to take it to the next level? Add a sprinkle of sausage to the hash browns, and top the eggs with sharp cheddar or mozzarella cheese for a perfect Easter breakfast.
Recipe: Pecan Pancakes
This breakfast favorite is quick and easy, not to mention super tasty. We prefer the hearty thickness of these pancakes. If you like yours thinner, add up to 2/3 cup additional milk to batter.
Farmer’s Oven-Baked Omelet

Forget standing over a skillet and put this tasty family-size omelet in the oven. Top with fresh veggies and herbs and your favorite cheese. We also like a combination of spinach, Cheddar, and bacon.
Over-the-Border Breakfast Sausage Wraps
Add a Southwestern twist to your favorite breakfast foods with these wraps. We lightened up the breakfast wrap with 50%-less-fat pork sausage, egg substitute, and reduced fat cheese. Top with sour cream, salsa, and green onions, and serve with a side of fruit salad.
Recipe: Oatmeal-Honey Waffles
Hearty ground oats lend a nutty flavor to these fluffy homemade waffles. For a fun presentation, allow your family to choose their own toppings buffet-style. We like syrup, jams, fruits, cinnamon and powdered sugar, toasted nuts, and, if you want splurge, whipped cream and chocolate chips.

Make quick breakfast sandwiches with frozen biscuits and our simple oven-baked omelet. Add bacon, sausage, or cheese if you like. These are easy to make ahead and keep in the freezer.
