Chef Jason Roberts, author of Good Fast Food, has this to say about his recipe: “A breakfast parfait or sundae is a great way to include a little bit of everything on your fork or spoon in the morning. You can make this parfait a day ahead, making it a perfect grab-and-go breakfast. Breakfast parfaits are pretty simple to put together, and the only limit to the flavors and textures in the parfait is your own imagination. To simplify this recipe, you could use muesli instead of the quinoa, almonds, and chia seeds.” For the Breakfast Parfait recipe, click here.

Chorizo, Potato, and Kale Hash

Julia Mueller, author of Let Them Eat Kale, says: “While breakfast hashes are typically chock-full of greasy bacon or sausage and potatoes, I love making hashes using leaner chorizos, such as ground turkey or chicken chorizo. Replacing russet potatoes with yams or sweet potatoes and adding kale makes this breakfast a healthier alternative to your typical hash. You can also use this hash to make breakfast burritos and tacos, or an omelette.” Make this hash the night before and throw it in a Tupperware to take to work.

Perfect Pancakes

What's your definition of the perfect pancake? If you're like most people, it probably includes the word "moist." Chobani figured out how to make perfectly moist pancakes with the help of a little vanilla-flavored Greek yogurt. Combined with fresh berries and a drizzle of maple syrup, they’ll blow you away. Make some pancakes the night before and throw them in the toaster oven in the morning to warm them through. Just because it’s a weekday doesn’t mean you have to have crappy food.

Potato Waffles

Stephanie Le, author of Easy Gourmet, says these are perfect for when you’re too hungry to cook. Even better, though, is taking leftovers and making them into something else entirely. Leftover mashed potatoes can be the base for so many delicious new things. Take these mashed potato waffles — they’re even more delicious because they’re so easy to make. Leftover mashed potatoes always lead to good things. Have them with breakfast sausage or bacon.

Slow-Cooker Irish Oatmeal

There’s no question that steel-cut oats are superior in flavor to instant oatmeal, but the extended cooking time, obligatory stirring, and sticky pot to clean can put off even the most loyal oatmeal enthusiast. Using a slow cooker eliminates the stovetop surveillance and mess. Plus, the oatmeal can be kept warm for late risers. For the Slow-Cooker Irish Oatmeal recipe, click here.

If you crave eggs, potatoes, and bacon in the morning but don’t have time to have a sit-down breakfast, make a breakfast burrito.
