Breakfast Recipes

Buttery Belgian Waffles from Cooking Classy

These buttery Belgian waffles are just the right amount of crunchy and sweet. This basic waffle can be dressed up any way you’d like — with whipped cream, fruit, chocolate chips, sugar, cinnamon, and more. Check out Cooking Classy for more ideas on how to make this recipe your own.

German Oven Pancakes

This is a breakfast-for-dinner entree that looks amazing but is very easy to prepare. A puffy, eggy creation, this pancake can be topped simply with lemon juice and a dusting of powdered sugar, butter and maple syrup, or it can be loaded up with vanilla yogurt and fresh fruit. This is an awesome tutorial about how to make them.

Eggnog French toast

Breakfast food is always a good idea, in our humble opinion. You can have it for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, so be sure to include this recipe for eggnog French toast somewhere in your schedule this month! If you like French toast and eggnog, you’re sure to love this recipe. It’s just as easy to make as the normal version, and it will make you feel ready for the holidays!

Syrup Recipes

Cinnamon Syrup from Jamie Cooks It Up!

Cinnamon is a warm winter flavor, perfect for those chilly December mornings. This simple recipe is perfect for topping your french toast or for drizzling over a breakfast casserole. Cinnamon syrup can be prepared in no time, and it’s best served hot.

Peanut Butter Maple Syrup Recipe from Oh, Sweet Basil

Looking for something to top your chocolate chip pancakes or waffles? This peanut butter maple syrup is the answer. It’s a great combination of maple syrup, milk, cream, vanilla, and peanut butter. We recommend using this syrup while it’s still fresh.
