Quick Weekday Breakfast Recipes


Making a satisfying breakfast on weekdays can be difficult, since there is often little time to cook and everyone is rushing around the household. There is an answer. Here are a few quick weekday breakfast recipes anyone can make.

Simple Pancakes

You can make a fast and simple pancake recipe without using boxed mixes or prepping your ingredients the night before. Combine two cups of milk and flour along with a half cup of sugar, two eggs and a teaspoon of vegetable oil. Add in one and a quarter tablespoons of baking power at the end to leaven the pancakes and mix well. Scoop out the batter into a heated and oiled frying pan. Make the scoops a little smaller than the size of the pancakes you want. Cook for around five to seven minutes turning once in the middle for a fast breakfast.

Scrambled Egg Soft Tacos

Scrambled egg soft tacos can be made in just a few minutes. They are also flexible enough to make with whatever you have on hand. Put a skillet over medium heat with some butter in the bottom. Add in four eggs when the butter melts and scramble them in the pan. Cook for around three minutes. Microwave a few soft tortilla shells at this time. Put a portion of the eggs into each shell. Finish by topping with Monterrey jack cheese, some salsa and a few avocado slices. Alternately, put your own favorite toppings or leftovers on each one to finish.

Fast French Toast

This simple French toast recipe can be finished in just around 10 minutes. Combine an egg, a teaspoon of vanilla extract and a half-teaspoon of cinnamon in a medium bowl. Add in a quarter cup of milk. Take slices of your favorite bread and dip both sides in the mixture. Let it drain for a moment over the bowl. Place the slices into a greased skillet or griddle and cook on both sides until golden brown.

Hot Ham and Cheese English Muffins

These breakfast sandwiches take just minutes to make and can be eaten while on the go. Toast up some English muffins. Place a few pieces of ham folded into neat stacks in a nonstick or greased frying pan. Ensure the folded ham will fit on the English muffin. Cook a little to warm up the ham and then flip it over. Place some cheddar cheese on top and cook until it melts. Slide each stack of ham and cheese onto an English muffin and serve.

Breakfast Parfait

A quick weekday breakfast that is easy to make, healthy, and flexible, is a parfait. A parfait is a simple layered breakfast that you can make in a glass, bowl or other tall container. You can use a whole grain cereal, leftover cooked grains like barley or premade granola as the dry ingredient. Put a layer of the dry ingredient in the bottom of the glass. Add in a scoop of yogurt. Put fresh fruit like sliced strawberries or whole blueberries on top. Repeat the layering another time or until reaching the top of the bowl or glass. Refrigerate, serve right away or take the parfait to work in a sealed container.

Microwave Breakfast Hash

An invaluable tool for making fast weekday breakfasts is a microwave. You can use a few premade ingredients to create a hot microwave breakfast hash. Put a half cup of frozen potatoes from the store into a microwave-safe bowl or dish. Microwave for about a minute or two. Add an egg and stir to blend. Sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese on top. Microwave for another 45 seconds to a minute. Serve hot for a hearty meal. You can top the hash with ketchup or barbecue sauce to spice up the flavor.

Apple and Cheese Toast

This incredibly simple recipe has a large amount of flavor. It is also relatively healthy when using the right ingredients. Cut a baguette on an angle into slices. Toast them under a broiler for around a minute on each side. Cut an apple into thin slices. Take out the baguette slices and spread on a layer of goat cheese. Put one or two apple slices on top. Add walnuts on top if you want. Drizzle with honey to finish. A few of these on a plate will make a very satisfying breakfast.
