Here's another mouthwatering yet healthy casserole that you can prepare ahead of time. Simply bake the potato crust as stated in the recipe. Let the crust cool before you cover and refrigerate it overnight. Prepare the rest of the recipe as stated, but do not pour the filling into the crust. Cover and refrigerate the filling as well. When you're ready to make it the next morning, simply pour the filling into the crust and pop into the oven as instructed.

This recipe had us at crumbly and buttery biscuits. Creamy avocados and sunny-side-up quail eggs complete this mini breakfast treat. It yields 8 tiny biscuit sandwiches, so if you want to use regular eggs, cut out a slightly larger biscuit.

If you don't like mushrooms, you can substitute them with asparagus or bell peppers. If you do, Manila Spoon recommends adding some onions to the mix for extra flavor.


7. Mediterranean Eggs

The Live-in Kitchen 

From: The Live-in Kitchen

The key to getting these eggs right is to caramelize some onions. Yes, it takes time, but not a lot of work. Once you get them going, stir them every time a commercial comes on while you’re watching your stories on the telly. That's what The Live-in Kitchen does. After your onions are ready to go, add the rest of the ingredients and let the eggs cook to your liking. Voila!


8. Hard Boiled Egg Breakfast Melt

Ellaphant Eats 

From: Ellaphant Eats

Ella, of Ellaphant Eats, makes an astute observation. When we think of egg sandwiches, we picture the eggs either fried or scrambled. She thought, why not mix it up this time and use hard-boiled eggs instead? She used cream cheese, hard boiled eggs, Roma tomatoes and avocado all topped with a Mexican shredded cheese blend and a smear of Sriracha. Let’s face it, she says, eggs and Sriracha were made for one another. Yes, they were, Ella. Yes, they were. If you make the hard-boiled eggs in advance, breakfast can be ready in 15 minutes.


9. Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookie Pancakes

Minimalist Baker 

From: Minimalist Baker

Look at those pancakes. You have to admit they look decadent, fluffy and delicious. And they are, except that they contain no butter, no added sugar besides the chocolate chips and can be made both gluten-free and vegan. Almond butter adds a nice punch of protein, too. The secret here is to use a flax egg — that not only helps to make this recipe vegan friendly but also should help out omnivore bakers who realize too late (it happens!) that they've either run out of eggs or don't have enough. So how do you make a flax egg? Combine 1 tablespoon of ground raw flaxseed and 2.5 tablespoons of water. Keep flaxseed in the house all the time and bake without fear ever again!


10. Cloud Breakfast Eggs

A Life of Geekery 

From: A Life of Geekery

Why are they called cloud eggs? That would be for the cloud of egg white that cradles a perfect runny rich yolk. It may look pretty fancy, but they're easy to make and ready in under 10 minutes. What more could you ask of a healthy breakfast?
