On winter mornings when you are all rolled up under your warm blanket, waking up for work might seem like the death penalty. However, if you imagine a cozy, warm breakfast with a hot cup of coffee or hot chocolate, everything starts feeling better. The biggest twist in this whole scenario is that getting out of bed and then preparing breakfast is one of the most difficult tasks. No one wants to get out of bed and then stand in front of a stove to prepare breakfast. In fact, most of us would put everything in jeopardy just to have a few more minutes tucked in a blanket. When stuck in a situation like that, the simplest yet most effective motivation is to look for a breakfast that is easy to make yet flavorful and warm. Combining all these things might seem like a difficult task but if you like experimenting with food, you can easily mix things up to prepare breakfast in no time.
While most people know what to do with breakfast, some of us are either too lazy to come up with ideas or we are not sure what would taste good. Although it is better to know what you like to eat or what you are craving at the moment you need something more than a basic breakfast. Perfect for the lazy yet cozy morning, here are some of the simplest suggestions. These breakfasts are extremely fun to prepare, easy and you do not have to stand in the kitchen. You can prepare them as you get ready for work or just heat them for a quick bite.
Banana Oatmeal Bread
Now hear me out, I know I promised an easy-to-follow recipe and banana bread might seem like a recipe that requires more than five minutes, but this recipe will be life-changing. It takes less than three minutes to prepare and you do not have to stand and wait. For this recipe just get your favorite mug and add two tablespoons of oat, one egg, a dash of milk, and a mashed banana. For some enhanced flavor you can also add a pinch of powdered cinnamon, a few drops of villa essence, and one teaspoon of chocolate. Mix it all up and just bake it in the microwave for three minutes. Once you see the upper layer of the oats getting a little tan and crispy, get it out. You can drizzle some honey on top or you can also top it with some whipped cream. Some people also like to add fruit of their choice, if you want to add fruit, I would recommend the strawberry and blueberry, however, and you can add whatever you like.
Another fun mug recipe but this time it is a little savory addition. For this recipe just chop up vegetables of your choice. I prefer some onions, tomato, parsley, coriander, green onion, and bell pepper. You can either add all these vegetables or select the one you like. For better taste, I would recommend using at least three vegetables. For some extra protein, you can add chicken or some diced sausage and add an egg. Whisk the egg well, then add a dash of milk, salt, pepper, or any other seasoning of your choice. Then in a mug or small bowl, add diced bread and pour the egg mixture on top. Now you can either add shredded cheese or skip this part completely. Bake this mixture for three minutes and then get it out. This is one of the simplest yet most fun breakfasts and the best thing about this breakfast is that it is oil-free and you do not have to do a lot of work. You can also chop up all the vegetables and freeze them so you can make them anytime you want.
Crispy Toast Savory Style
If you want a basic toast recipe, a very fun variation to try is avocado toast. For this toast, you can mash up some avocado and then add some spices of your choice. Once everything is mixed this will serve as your base. Meanwhile, toast the bread till it is crispy golden brown. Now, layer a generous amount of avocado mash on top of the bread and spread it evenly. For the protein, you can either choose egg or beacon. If you are decisive, you can add both. For the egg most people will go with a runny yolk, sunny side up egg style but if you do not want to cook, you can poach the egg in the microwave.
For the poached egg, you need a mug, fill it up with water and break your egg in the mug. The ratio of egg to water should be 1:3, so the egg doesn’t end up soaking in too much heat. In case the egg soaks up too much heat, it might burst, so it is very important to maintain a good water-to-egg ratio. For poaching, the egg just microwaves the cup for three minutes and you will get a perfectly fluffy egg with a runny yolk. Now just put this egg on the bread and dig in.
Crispy Toast Sweet Style
Very simple yet very cozy, this recipe will remind you of your Christmas childhood. For this recipe, toast your bread and let it change color. Now add some simple butter to get the umami flavor. Now, it’s time to spread some peanut butter, then some sliced banana, and a drizzle of honey. You can also add chocolate chips if you like. This is one of the simplest yet most flavorful bread recipes.
This toast is the simplest and easiest but it tastes like Italian summer. Flavorful, warm, and simple, you will fall in love with the recipe because it is that simple. For this toast, you need to just toast the bread till it is golden brown and crispy. Now add two thin slices of fresh tomato, and sprinkle some salt and pepper. Finally, you can add some mozzarella cheese. If you do not like mozzarella, you can add any other cheese of your choice. Finally, bake it in an air fryer or a bread oven for just two minutes. Now drizzle some balsamic vinegar and enjoy it piping hot.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so you need to make sure the food you choose is simple, and easy to make but rich in nutrients. These recipes are not only tasty but they will not take more than 5 minutes to prepare.
