50 Quick and Easy Breakfast Ideas That Don't Involve Eggs

No eggs? No problem!

If omelets, scrambled eggs and hardboiled eggs are your morning go-to's, you may need to come up with a plan B. Egg prices are reaching a historic peak due to bird flu-caused shortages and that’s leaving many egg aisles bare (flashback to the toilet paper and hand sanitizer shortages of 2020).

If you're lucky enough to find eggs, prepare to pay for them. For example, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the average retail price for a dozen large eggs in California is $7.37. Compare that to $2.35 a year ago.

Until eggs become cheaper and easier to find, consider switching your egg-filled breakfast recipes for ones that are eggless, like one of these 50 breakfast ideas without eggs.
