Shepherd’s Inn Breakfast Pie

Actually more of a casserole than a pie, this egg bake is delightful no matter what you call it. A base of crumbled sausage and frozen Tater Tots are topped with an egg and cheese batter and baked until bubbling. Serve with fresh tomatoes and chopped chives or herbs to add a summery slant.
11 / 55

Breakfast Sausage Bread

This stuffed bread recipe looks worthy of the Great British Baking Show, but it’s actually a snap to pull together when you use store-bought bread dough. The filling and seasonings are adaptable to what you have on hand: omit the mushrooms, for instance, or sub a different herb for the rosemary.
12 / 55

Banana-Hazelnut Pain Perdu Duet

French toast has a different name in France: Pain Perdu, meaning “lost bread.” Why? The recipe saves stale bread that might have been lost or discarded, transforming it into a moist, silky, sweet breakfast. Stale bread soaks up more eggs than fresh, so lightly toast the bread if you don’t have any that are stale.
13 / 55

Overnight Cinnamon Rolls Exps Mcbz16 172628 D08 24 2b 21

Overnight Cinnamon Rolls

Preparing cinnamon rolls the night before baking has two big benefits. First, it makes the morning easier (yay!). Second, and maybe more importantly, the overnight rise allows the dough to fully hydrate, resulting in a full-flavored, super-tender roll. Yes, please.

Mexicali Quiche With Avocado Crust Exps Rc22 268322 P2 Md 05 05 1b

Mexicali Quiche with Avocado Crust

This New Mexico-inspired dish is full of the smoky, spicy flavor of green chiles. A creative twist sets apart the cracker crust: use both shortening and avocado to bind it together, which adds lots of flavor and healthy fat. While the recipe calls for Ritz crackers, you could substitute a gluten-free butter cracker (don’t use a heavily seeded or nut-based option) to make this a gluten-free breakfast.
