Reviewed by Dietitian Maria Laura Haddad-Garcia
From veggie-packed frittatas to air-fryer French toasts, these brand-new breakfast recipes were just published on EatingWell's website this year. Plus, they're packed with protein with at least 15 grams per serving, making them satisfying options that will keep you fueled and energized until your next meal. Recipes like our Strata with Goat Cheese & Asparagus and Peanut Butter Pancakes are delicious and nutritious choices you'll want to make again and again.
Strata with Goat Cheese & Asparagus
With a fluffy and light texture, this strata makes the perfect breakfast or brunch dish. Crumbles of goat cheese ensure each bite is salty and creamy. If the goat cheese is soft, place it in the fridge to harden, which will make crumbling easier.
Greek Salad Omelet Wrap
Would you rather have a salad or a wrap for dinner? Wait, why not both! This protein-packed meal features Greek salad tucked into an egg-white wrap. It also makes for a delicious breakfast.
This homemade acai bowl recipe makes for a delicious breakfast any day of the week. Acai can be very tart, so blending it with banana, coconut water and mixed berries adds sweetness to help balance the flavors. Feel free to switch up the toppings depending on your preferences.
Egg, Spinach & Cheddar Breakfast Sandwich
Fill yourself up with this ultra-quick egg, spinach and Cheddar breakfast sandwich. It's not only fast, but there's a good chance you already have the ingredients on hand that you'll need to pull it together, so you can skip a trip to the store before your busy workweek.
Air-Fryer Chicken Sausage & Veggie Frittata
Packed with chard, tomatoes, scallions and chicken sausage, this healthy frittata makes the perfect breakfast for two.
Air-Fryer French Toast
The air fryer in this air-fryer French toast recipe delivers a crispy outside and tender middle, with all the classic flavors dressed up with fresh strawberries and a drizzle of maple syrup.
This potato frittata is packed with fresh herbs and vegetables. Dill havarti adds a creamy, mild flavor to the dish. The frittata releases easily from the cast-iron pan, revealing a savory crust on the bottom that adds flavor and texture.
Peanut Butter Pancakes
Peanut butter lovers will love these nutty peanut butter pancakes that are slathered in peanut butter and sprinkled with additional chopped peanuts. They're subtly sweet on their own, but if you want them sweeter, drizzle with additional maple syrup.
Air-Fryer French Toast Sticks
This air-fryer French toast recipe cuts the toast into strips that are crispy on the outside, tender on the inside and perfect for dipping into maple syrup or your favorite fruit compote.
Air-Fryer Breakfast Bowl
These savory breakfast bowls make excellent use of the air fryer. The tortilla is the perfect vehicle for scooping up the egg, pepper and tomato filling—plus it can soak up the runny egg yolk. Lime juice adds brightness to finish the dish.
