3. Chai Baked Oatmeal >
Waking up to a bowl of ordinary oatmeal can feel a little uninspiring.

The dish comes out of the oven ready to slice into nine servings so everyone in the family can take one with them on busy mornings. Wrap up and freeze the leftovers to pull out on another day when you need a quick and nourishing breakfast.

An egg casserole is a simple way to make and serve a hearty breakfast any day of the week.

5. Baked Berry French Toast Casserole >
French toast casserole takes all the time and work out of making a complete—and completely delicious—breakfast. Instead of all the bowls and pans needed to cook traditional French toast, the casserole comes together in one baking tray. In this Baked Berry French Toast Casserole recipe, fresh blueberries add sweetness, accented with cinnamon and vanilla. When blueberries aren’t in season, or if you just don’t care for them, you can substitute strawberries, raspberries or apples. For extra protein and a contrasting flavor, add a serving of chopped nuts (two tablespoons) or nut butter (one tablespoon).
6. Veggie Quinoa Breakfast Bake >
Here’s the perfect breakfast for any morning you need extra fuel in your tank. Quinoa is a potent grain, a SmartCarb that’s high in fiber AND protein so it keeps you feeling full. In this Veggie Quinoa Breakfast Bake recipe, quinoa’s mildly nutty taste is complemented by the savory mushrooms, spinach, dried tomatoes, onions, garlic and eggs. It comes out of the oven warm, fragrant and ready for you to dig in.
