Breakfast Recipes - Delicious

I am interested in making delicious, unusual meals and desserts, particularly for special occasions. Quick and easy meals are also great.

Blackberry Muffins


Black Berry Muffins

Mouthwatering easy breakfast recipes are what we eat on the weekends. Typically at our house during the week our morning breakfast consists of healthy recipes including fruit (bananas, blueberries or strawberries), cereal, orange juice, and coffee. We freeze bags of our favorite berries when they first get ripe in the summer.

We were fortunate to find fresh-picked blackberries last weekend for a nominal fee, and now we have 8 bags filled in the freezer. Of course, I had to make some blackberry muffins the same day, and they were delicious. I use easy recipes whenever possible and this was no exception. I also baked a double batch of muffins so we could freeze a couple of bags of muffins

Black Berry Muffin Recipe


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/8 cup sugar
  • 3 cups flour, divided
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pinch baking soda
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups blackberries


Preheat oven to 400°.Grease muffin pans or use cup liners. In a large bowl cream butter with sugar and add eggs. Reserve 3 tablespoons of the flour and combine the remaining flour with baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Combine milk and vanilla.

Alternately add the milk and flour mixture to the creamed butter and egg mixture. Sprinkle reserved flour over berries so they won't sink to the bottom of the muffins. Then, gently fold berries into the mixture. Fill each muffin cup 3/4 full and sprinkle tops with sugar and add a little cinnamon or nutmeg if desired. Bake 15 to 20 minutes, until done.

Sliced Apples Ready to Serve


Waffles Smothered in Fried Apples

We tend to cook a larger breakfast on the weekends and one we like very well is waffles with cooked apples. My husband cooks the apples and has a magic touch with the right seasoning, and I cook my tasty waffles. Do you like waffles?

Waffle Recipe


  • 1 ¾ cups sifted all-purpose flour
  • 3 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 2 beaten egg yolks
  • 1 ¾ cups milk
  • ½ cup canola oil
  • 2 stiffly beaten egg whites

Sift together dry ingredients. Combine yolks, milk, and oil; stir into dry ingredients. Fold in egg whites gently, leaving a few fluffs as this is what makes these waffles so light and delicious. Bake on the waffle maker. You can spray the waffle iron with a spray like PAM but that’s not necessary if your iron is non-stick.

Makes 3 10 inch waffles. Serve with hot maple syrup or fruit syrup or with fried apples, which is what we do most of the time.

*You may substitute the milk and baking powder with buttermilk and baking soda which is my preference,

Fried Apples


  • 6 cups peeled and thinly sliced Granny Smith apples
  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon

Slowly melt butter in a skillet on low to medium heat. Add apples, sugar and sprinkle cinnamon over the apples. Stir ingredients, then cover with a lid and continue to cook on low-med heat. Cook for approximately 5-7 minutes and stir. Cover again and cook just until the apple juices become caramelized; they will be a deep brown color.

Pour over the hot waffles and you have a delicious breakfast. These apples can just be eaten out of a bowl or served with pancakes, ham and many other foods


Another simple breakfast we enjoy is link sausage, fried eggs, and wheat toast and we use simple link sausage.

Use a non-stick spray and spray the frying pan. Use heat just under medium and add sausage. Cover pan and cook for 12-15 minutes turning frequently so you get all sides brown.

Fried eggs sunny-side-up are another simple breakfast item to cook. Use a non-stick skillet, and add butter, olive oil, bacon grease or a non-stick spray. Put the burner on a low heat and break each egg in a small bowl and slide it carefully into the pan. Once the whites coagulate on the bottom after about 1 minute, add 1 tsp. of water and cover the pan tightly to hold in the steam. Cook until the whites are completely set. Add salt and pepper if desired.

Quick and Easy Breakfast for Kids

This next video will demonstrate how to fry and egg on a piece of toast. I have used this recipe for years and seriously thought I made it up; so it was a surprise to find this simple video that demonstrates this easy technique.

My children loved this recipe when they were young, but so did the adults.

For Teens and Kids


These are just a very small sample of breakfast food in our house. We like breakfast food well enough to occasionally have it for dinner when nothing else has been planned.

These are all easy recipes and your family will you or your family will probably love them.

Thanks for all the wonderful breakfast recipes. I especially want to try the black berry muffins recipe. I just noticed the blackberries are starting to ripen here. My husband makes a really good black berry pie. We've never tried putting them in muffins, so thanks again for the recipe.

Apples and waffles - ummmm good. How come I never thought of combining them? I eat apples. I eat waffles. Just separately. Will definitely try it. Thanks, Pamela.

akirchner, Thanks for your comments.

Audrey Kirchner from Washington on June 17, 2010:

That's one kind of muffins I've never made! Go figure - I've made huckleberry though and they were fab. I usually use blackberries for cobbler or pies but good info and will have to try it.

Love the egg in the toast - we did that when my kids were little - they just loved it! Thanks for bringing back a good memory.

Rev Lady, Thank your for your comments

BPOP, The video below that comment shows cooking a fried egg on top a piece of toast so it gets cooked also. The rest was a little joke that we made up at home.

breakfastpop on June 16, 2010:

We used to call that "thingie" an egg with a whole in the middle, which makes no sense whatsoever.

RevLady from Lantana, Florida on June 16, 2010:

Great ideas that appeals to the taste buds (smile). Thanks!

Forever His,
