Kitchen Tip Tuesday - Simple Breakfasts

I used to often skip breakfast and just grab a coffee, and then end up famished by lunchtime. And because I was famished, I would just scarf things down and not even prepare a proper lunch either.

Lately, I have been eating breakfast and if I put too much thought into it, it becomes overwhelming, what should I make, what will use the least amount of dishes, what do I have on hand. Ya I know, I think too much sometimes :)

So todays' post is all about simple - throw together breakfasts that aren't junk food.

Eggs - all kinds of eggs - I like scrambled a lot because, again I don't have to try too hard with them. Fancy them up with some sauteed onions and mushrooms. Top with cheese, tomato or add spinach - you can do SO many things with eggs that you can have different eggs everyday.

An easy favorite we always had as kids was to boil eggs, peel while still hot/warm, chop them up and then toss with a bit of butter or margarine and salt & pepper. I ate this almost everyday in the winter time.

Bagels - we usually always have some of these on hand. Cinnamon raisin bagels are great with peanut butter.

An Everything bagel ( poppy seeds, sesame seeds, onion bits) with mayo, lots of fresh slices tomato (even better if it is from your own garden) and salt & pepper.

I LOVE these.

Fresh fruit - any kind you have on hand, with a touch of honey and lemon juice - a great summer breakfast.

So many good choices when you getting thinking about it. Ok now I am hungry :)
