Rating: 4.5 stars 371
I decided to push the envelope in this recipe for blueberry muffins and toss in 2 cups of blueberries!

A Hearty Porridge

Rating: 5 stars 4
Energy packed slow-release breakfast. This recipe will make enough for a week. Cut out a section each morning, chop and add milk to almost cover, heat in microwave for 3 1/2 minutes, and enjoy energy til lunch time.

Mama Bear's Porridge

Rating: 4.5 stars 128
My Mama Bear made this for us all the time! Even oatmeal haters might like this version. It's sweet and custardy, and keeps you full 'till lunchtime. By the way, don't balk at the 'raw eggs' that get stirred in - the hot porridge cooks them completely. Bears prefer honey, but brown sugar can be used instead.

Brown Rice Breakfast Porridge

Rating: 4.5 stars 109
Use up that leftover brown rice and try something new for breakfast. Experiment with it to make it your own, you can try using any mixture of dried fruit instead of the blueberries.

Jamaican Cornmeal Porridge

Rating: 5 stars 6
This cornmeal porridge is a family recipe. The dish makes enough porridge for one hungry adult or two hungry six-year-old kids.

A quick breakfast if you're trying to avoid carbs.

Whole-Grain Blueberry Scones

Rating: 4.5 stars 30
I was brainstorming some ideas for using up a cup of nearly perfect blueberries, and was waffling between muffins, donuts, and biscuits. I finally decided on a biscuit-like triangle, spiced subtly with essence of old-fashioned donut. I'm calling it a scone because I cut it into a triangle.

Liège Belgian Waffles with Pearl Sugar

Rating: 4.5 stars 160
Delicious, sweet waffles that can be served for breakfast or dessert.

Chef John's Pumpkin Scones

Rating: 4.5 stars 94
Here's an example of how I would convince the public that pumpkin is great for any time of the year. Ironically, I did this because I had leftover pumpkin from Thanksgiving.

Strawberry Oatmeal Breakfast Bars

Rating: 5 stars 48
I'm always on the lookout for easy and delicious things to make for breakfast that are on the one hand, relatively healthy and good for you, while on the other hand, not too good for you. I think these really do fit the bill. These are normally made with strawberry preserves, but here we're using fresh strawberries for a little lighter and lower-sugar approach. For best results, refrigerate before serving.
