Breakfast / Brunch Recipes
Few people enjoy a proper breakfast more than I do. This is a list of many of the best breakfast and brunch recipes I’ve discovered over the years. Some are quick grab-and-go recipes, others are for when you have more time.

Maple syrup scones sweetened with a hint of maple syrup. Big flakes of sugar meld into a sweet, crackly top crust, and the whole wheat pastry flour makes them beautifully tender.
A perfect breakfast - thin slices of sautéed pears, ruby-hued cranberries, and plump, golden wheat berries are sweetened with generous dollops of maple-sweetened yogurt and finished with plenty of toasted pecans and a sprinkling of dried persimmons, ginger, and dates.
A wonderful coffee cake recipe made from fresh wild huckleberries using maple syrup as a sweetener instead of white sugar.
A stunning berry-studded breakfast quinoa with pecans and blackberries, sweetened with agave nectar or honey.
A stunning, delicious sweet strawberry panzanella recipe. Bread cubes are tossed with a sweet brown sugar glaze, strawberries are mashed into a dressing, and it is all served family style.
A uniquely delicious pancake recipe. If you can imagine coconut macaroons in pancake form - moist, golden, coconut-packed, with just a hint of sweetness - that's what you'll get.
This breakfast polenta recipe is creamy, comforting and receptive to many add-in flavors and textures. For this version I served small bowls of fluffy yellow polenta topped with toasted almonds, jewel-colored dried fruits, and a drizzle of cream and honey.
My go-to poppy seed pancake recipe. Made with buttermillk, a generous amount of poppy seeds, toasted sunflower seeds. Drizzled with an simple-to-make, chunky citrus syrup.
A favorite (and quick) tofu scramble recipe using shaved fennel, caramelized onions spices and dried fruit, and then counter-balancing those flavors with cilantro and chopped nuts.
A variation on my favorite egg salad recipe, this version uses plain yogurt in place of mayo and incorporates curry powder, chopped apples, toasted pecans, and minced chives.
