"You're in for a huge treat with this blueberry studded baked pancake — it's rich and satisfying but surprisingly light tasting," Chef John says. "The true magic of a Dutch baby is the contrast of texture between the crispy, crusty outside and the soft, custardy, fruity center. This version is not only gorgeous and delicious, but it's fun and simple to make!"

A low-carb favorite, chaffles call on eggs and cheese to make savory, satisfying waffles. "Adding almond flour gives them a more traditional waffle texture and helps get rid of any eggy taste," Allrecipes Allstar lutzflcat says. "Seriously, try them, they're delicious!"

Blueberry-Lemon Breakfast Biscuits

Refrigerated dough to the rescue, once again. "With only four ingredients, these biscuits are so tasty that you could serve them for dessert," Allstar Yoly says.

Strawberry Oatmeal Breakfast Bars

Chef John

"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," Chef John says. "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."

And we're back to chaffles! This two-ingredient recipe (also from Allstar lutzflcat) holds a five-star rating, so the reward of trying it totally outweighs the risk of not liking it. But really, what's not to like about eggs and mozzarella?
