Unique Breakfast Recipes You'll Wish You Knew About Sooner

Poor breakfast, perhaps the most neglected meal of the day. Overall, breakfast can be criminally underrated and overlooked as far as being a fun meal. Frankly, it doesn't get the attention it deserves. Morning is a time of day many people rush through, after all. Between running out the door to beat rush hour traffic during the week, to dealing with a jam-packed social calendar on the weekends, stopping for a few minutes to enjoy a hastily-prepared breakfast may seem downright impossible, if not utterly boring.

But breakfast isn't just about a drab bowl of cereal or the same old banana peanut butter protein shake. We've put together some really unique breakfast recipes you'll wish you knew about sooner. They'll actually make you look forward to sitting down for a scrumptious meal that will perhaps even revolutionize your conception of breakfast.

So, get excited! First of all, because breakfast lasagna exists, and also because your mornings are about to be changed forever in the tastiest of ways.

This Dutch baby is so delicious and buttery, it's sinful

The final product will have your family or guests thinking you spent a lot of time lovingly putting this dish together because it will look like it's ready for a bakery showcase. In reality, this classic breakfast treat will only take 35 minutes to come together, with most of that time spent letting the oven do the work for you.

The batter consists of eggs, flour, milk, and butter. You'll bake your batter in the skillet similar to a pie, then add your favorite fruit or fruits to the mix. Top it off with a sprinkling of powdered sugar for added sweetness and extra presentation points.

This Instant Pot snickerdoodle French toast casserole is calling all sweet tooth lovers

You've probably had French toast more times than you can count for breakfast. But chances are, you've never had Instant Pot snickerdoodle French toast casserole. Big mistake — and it's time to rectify that as soon as possible.

If you have a sweet tooth and are kind of obsessed with snickerdoodles, this dish will make you feel like you're eating dessert for breakfast, and that's definitely not a bad thing. Plus, it's really simple to put together, thanks to the Instant Pot portion of this recipe.

For this recipe, you will first cube the brioche and combine it with a mixture of eggs, cream, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar, and salt. The cubes should be dried out before starting the Instant Pot process to prevent a soggy finished product (because that would be an utter catastrophe). Once your brioche is cooked, you'll add some sweet toppings like berries, maple syrup, and powdered sugar.

Breakfast lasagna exists and you need it in your life

Lasagna for breakfast? You bet.

You will also need pancetta or bacon, biscuits, a bunch of veggies, and eggs. You'll also be using seasonings such as parsley, thyme, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Once you sauté your vegetables, you'll layer everything out in the pan as you would when preparing a more classic pasta-based lasagna. The beauty of this dish is that you can make it on the weekend and have leftovers ready to quickly warm up during the week — that is, if everyone doesn't eat it all right away.

This cloud bread breakfast sandwich is the only way to do a breakfast sandwich

It's a known fact that you'd be doing your breakfast sandwich an injustice by not serving it on the proper bread. Enter: cloud bread. If you haven't had cloud bread before, then your mind about to be blown with our cloud bread breakfast sandwich recipe. It's soft, complete, and utterly carby perfection.

To make this sandwich, you'll need eggs, cream cheese, cream of tartar, and salt. You'll combine the egg yolks, cream cheese, and salt first. Then, whisk the egg whites separately with an electric mixer and combine them with the yolk mixture. Once everything's mixed, you'll bake your cloud bread for about 30 minutes. And just like that, you'll have the most delicious home for your egg sandwich, which we suggest filling with a pork patty, cheddar cheese, eggs, avocado, honey, and hot sauce for a spicy-hot, sweet treat.

Crumpets for breakfast call for butter and your go-to jams

Pull out your favorite tea set and assorted jams, because it's time for crumpets. There's something so special about making baked goods from scratch, and our recipe for crumpets is no exception. It requires you to make the dough from scratch, cover it in a bowl, and let it rise. Once the dough is bubbly, you'll fry your crumpets in a pan.

Be patient, because this recipe will require a solid chunk of time, patience, and love to come together. But in a little over two and a half hours, you'll end up with the perfect breakfast treat while you sip and spill the tea with your friends. Tea time just got a major upgrade — so pinkies up.

Ham and cheese cloud eggs will put your taste buds on cloud nine

When you're craving something savory for breakfast, nothing beats a good old ham, egg, and cheese. But our recipe for cheesy cloud eggs puts a fun twist on this classic that you probably haven't thought of.

If you don't know what cloud eggs are, let us clue you in. For this recipe, the egg whites and yolks are separated. After beating your egg whites, you can add the tasty fillings of your choosing. We used ham, shredded cheddar cheese, and dried onion here, but feel free to get creative with other ingredients.

You'll then create four mounds with your concoction on a baking sheet, and after baking for about four minutes, pace a yolk into the middle of each egg white "nest." Bake for around three more minutes, and then you have a few cloud eggs to dig into.
