Transform Your Leftovers! 5 Quick Breakfast Makeovers

Posted by

It’s easy to rest on our breakfast laurels—after all, everyone loves a bowl of their favorite cereal with milk (any Cinnamon Life fans out there?). But we also love to mix it up in the morning with new and creative breakfasts ideas, like this Spanish tortilla with bell peppers. The downside? Waking up painfully early to make them. Our solution is two-fold: take advantage of last night’s dinner leftovers to reinvent this morning’s breakfast in a flash.

Have five minutes? Fry an egg and top over reheated dinner casseroles such as Baked Polenta with Sausage and Artichoke. For something sweet, transform extra quinoa or bulgur into a warm, fruity porridge.

Got a little more time? Repurpose leftover fajita or stir-fry meat into breakfast tacos! Just scramble an egg, heat your leftovers, and fold between tortillas. Add flair with extra toppings like cheese, cilantro, or salsa—go crazy! Or use up extra sautéed greens for our take on Eggs Florentine. Just add a fried egg, toast, and crumbled cheese for a fancy new breakfast.

Brunch in a pinch? Utilize those extra dinner rolls for make-ahead Baked French Toast. Just pop in the oven whenever you wake up for a sweet treat in under 30 minutes.

For the egg lovers out there, toss together any leftover cooked vegetables to throw into an impressive and delicious frittata.

Armed with these fresh ideas, you can look forward to enjoying tasty new breakfasts (and extra sleep) while stretching your week's dinners. Have fun!

    After i originally commented I clicked often the -Notify me whenever new feedback are added- checkbox and today each time a comment is added I actually get four e-mails with the same comment. Will there be any strategy you’ll have the ability to eliminate me from that services? Thanks a lot!
