Be-Still-My-Heart Breakfast Pizza

As delicious as cold, last-night's pizza can be for breakfast, some occasions call for a little something extra. Perfectly cooked eggs, tender heart-shaped dough with a crisp bottom, and traditional hot Italian sausage make the cutest morning pizza. Add whatever extra toppings you, or whomever you're making this for, love. Just make sure not to crack the egg into the bacon heart, because it won't cook.

Creamy Brioche and Egg Bake

Rating: 3.5 stars

This stand alone breakfast dish is an upgrade from the usual breakfast casserole. Baking eggs in brioche and heavy cream allows for perfectly set, soft, and runny eggs. Fresh herbs and rich egg and meaty sausage flavors round out this bake and give it irresistable texture. Ask for brioche at your local grocery store or bakery and they are sure to have it.

Copycat IHOP Strawberry Banana King's Hawaiian French Toast

A partnership between IHOP and King’s Hawaiian Sweet Bread led to the creation of the ultimate breakfast mashup—Hawaiian sweet bread French toast… Yeah, we are just scratching our heads wondering why we hadn’t thought of this first. This dish has transformed the classic, cult favorite dinner rolls into a morning must-have, that may just replace basic sliced bread forever. The pillowy rolls are dunked in a rich vanilla custard and pan-fried with butter to golden perfection. The French toasts are then topped with a simple strawberry syrup made from fresh berries and sugar, simmered for just a few minutes, followed by a handful of banana slices for a sweet finish.

Savory Crepe Cake

You can add in different cheeses, as long as they are soft. Rindless brie, Gorgonzola, Delice de Bourgogne are all good in this. Use a different topping, and add some crumbled bacon between the slices. Make the crepes gluten-free if needed. The cake can be made up to three days in advance, and since the cheeses make it rich—one cake serves at least 12 people—you want to slice it on the thinner side.

Red Velvet Cinnamon Rolls

Warm, tender, moist and absolutely decadent, these Red Velvet Cinnamon Rolls are practically begging to be made on Christmas morning. This recipe has the best of both worlds: The warm spicy cinnamon and gooey filling of cinnamon buns, with the indulgent chocolatiness of red velvet cake. We recommend being as delicate as possible with the dough to preserve the shape—instead of using a knife, cut the log with dental floss to get clean lines.

Biscuits and Gravy Casserole

Fluffy buttermilk biscuits top a sea of rich and creamy gravy in this comforting casserole.

Blueberry Scones

When we set out to create the best basic blueberry scone recipe, we knew it needed to be buttery and tender, but not cakey or overtly sweet—dense for sure, but not dry. These deliver on every front. While these blueberry scones are divine as-is, you can customize the recipe with whatever flavor add-ins you like. Try mixing in some spices—we found that ground ginger and ground cardamom (about 1/4 teaspoon each) to be great aromatic flavor compliments to the blueberries—or you could add a little fresh citrus zest to the dough. If you like your scones on the sweeter side, we’ve also included a simple citrus glaze recipe to drizzle over top. You can use fresh lemon or orange here; we actually used a combination of both with very tasty results. In order to prevent soggy blueberry scones, wait to glaze them until you’re ready to serve.
