Fattet Djaj Is the Perfect Savory Breakfast for Egg-Haters Recipe

While you could simply reheat last night's dinner and call it a day, you should know that eggless savory breakfast can be way more exciting. Allow me to introduce you to fatteh. A type of southern Levantine dish of warm pieces of flatbread covered in hearty toppings like chicken, tongue, beef, eggplant, or chickpeas, fatteh is made in a multitude of regional styles. New York City's Au Za'atar currently has their own version of the dish (they make it in the Lebanese style) on their brunch menu.
Breakfast Lasagna Will Get You Through These Next Few Days
Breakfast Lasagna Will Get You Through These Next Few Days Recipe
Why don't we make ratatouille for breakfast more often? Winter breakfasts tend to slant sweet and warm—gooey cinnamon rolls, thick porridge smeared with jam, chocolate babka—but what about the savory? Specifically, what about the vegetables? Ratatouille proves that vegetables can be used in the morning outside of an omelet. This vegetable dish is so strong it can actually stand on its own if you don't eat eggs. Of course our recipe calls for a dozen, but if you're opting out, just toss in a can of cooked chickpeas for some protein.

Pancake Breakfast Tacos
Pancake Breakfast Tacos Recipe
We're always here for a riff on classic breakfast tacos (see: pancake tacos), so get ready to stuff a paratha with your favorite fillings. The flaky flatbread gets its rich flavor from a mixture of bread flour and whole wheat flour, plus plenty of melted ghee. It may seem like magic, but those light layers are the result of accordion folding and rolling the dough into a spiral before rolling it out and repeating. Sounds tricky, but after watching this video and practicing it in real life, you'll get the hang of rolling a paratha in no time.
Breakfast Pizza Pockets Taste Like Childhood
Breakfast Pizza Pockets Taste Like Childhood Recipe
If you ever heated up a tray of pizza pockets for an after-school snack as a kid, listen up. Breakfast pockets take just a little more time to make, but are even more satisfying because you get to pick the fillings. Pick up a package of pre-made frozen pizza dough (or make your own, if you're feeling homestead-y), roll it out, and slice it into square—large for bigger pockets, smaller for mini pockets. Fill the dough with eggs, cheese, and meat if you like, bake the pockets, and breakfast is served. Better yet, you could make a batch of breakfast pockets on Sunday night and reheat one before you head to work for the next couple days.

Make a Lobster Roll Breakfast Taco This Weekend Recipe
For some Northeasterners, it's not summer until the first lobster roll has been consumed. If you're not planning a trip to Maine in the near future (or you just aren't into that much mayo on a sandwich), the lobster roll breakfast taco is calling your name. Pairing tender chunks of lobster meat with creamy scrambled eggs instead of the mayonnaise-y lobster salad, the lobster roll breakfast taco also makes its home inside a charred tortilla instead of a hot dog bun. We might be about to loose the lobster roll purists, but just give this guy a chance.

Egg in a Waffle Hole Is What Breakfast Dreams Are Made Of Recipe
Will we ever tire of egg-in-a-hole foods? No. No, we won't.

This egg-in-a-hole, waffle edition, takes the trend back to breakfast basics, placing a jammy egg in the center of a classic buttermilk waffle.
Chicken and Waffles Are the Best Clucking Breakfast Ever
Chicken and Waffles Are the Best Clucking Breakfast Ever Recipe
No one's quite sure where the tradition of pairing fried chicken and crispy waffles first originated (some believe it was at Roscoe's in Los Angeles). Chef Kyle Bailey from DC's Birch & Barley shared his version, one of the stars of a brunch menu that draws crowds—and long lines—every weekend. He wisely selects chicken thighs to brine in buttermilk and spices before dredging them in a heavily seasoned flour mixture and frying to a shattering crispness; the thighs never lose their natural juiciness.
Breakfast Sushi with Bacon, Egg, and Cheese
Breakfast Sushi with Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Recipe
One of the finest staples of New York City breakfast culture is the bodega BEC, or bacon, egg, and cheese. This sandwich, whether on a roll or a bagel is generally a foil-wrapped godsend purchased on the go for cheap. It combats hangovers, fills your belly, and tastes damn good no matter how crappy it was executed. The only downside to the BEC is that it's a gutbomb. You don't want to do hot yoga post-BEC.

You could use a fork or chopsticks to avoid dropping chili and salsa on yourself, or just dig right in with your hands. Chips count as utensils.

Crab Cake Eggs Benedict Is a Quintessential Chesapeake Bay Breakfast
Crab Cake Eggs Benedict Is a Quintessential Chesapeake Bay Breakfast Recipe
In the summers, we rented houses on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, took my uncles' boats out into the bay, and fished for crab all day long. Grandma always picked the crabs like a pro and turned them into those exceptional crab cakes.

This Bacon and Egg Fried Rice Recipe Is a New Twist On an Old Favorite Recipe
Fried rice might not scream "brunch" to you, but to Stephen Gillanders, the executive chef of Chicago restaurant Intro, it was a natural fit for their new menu. As its name might indicate, Intro is used to introducing new concepts: the restaurant switches their menu every few months. At the end of February, Intro launched a modern Chinese dim sum brunch.
