We've all heard about the importance of a solid breakfast, but more often than not, good intentions fall victim to making the 8:10 a.m. train. I can't tell you how many New Year's resolutions I've set, only to find myself choking down pasty instant oatmeal at my desk or — gasp! — forgoing breakfast entirely. Difficult as it may be to believe, you really can make time for a filling breakfast, whether you pause for a moment to eat before running out the door or take it to go. We've compiled 10 recipes to combat the fiercest of morning hunger pangs and time crunches.

Regardless, we've got eight great recipes to start your day off the right way. From simple savory breakfasts like avocado toast to sweet, more indulgent options like blueberry griddle cakes, these recipes will have you almost excited to get out of bed in the morning.
Since mangoes are in season, my favorite smoothie these days is a mix of cranberry juice, yogurt, and the fresh tropical fruit. The cranberry first struck me as random, but it adds a wonderful depth of flavor and a little more complexity. A better on-the-go breakfast, when you read more.

I gave the online recipe a try, and to my disappointment, I had a runny egg white mess. I experimented with the one in the book and while the results were better, I knew this breakfast dish must be easier to make.
After my fifth slice of toast, I finally mastered a technique that created a perfectly cooked egg with salty jamon and creamy bechamel. Basically, I didn't make the jamon cup, instead I removed a little bit of bread in the center, and nestled the egg inside. No one realized I cheated! Don't let this tasty toast scare you, keep reading for the recipe and my tips.
I can't take credit for this concept (that goes to Chad Luethje, chef at the famed Miraval Resort & Spa), but these salmon-based sausages are low-carb, low-fat, gluten-free, and filling. They're simply stunning on their own; the finely-diced texture and chili-cumin spices add a real sausage-like quality and flavor. Enjoy them sandwiched between wheat toast or like I did, with a side of Kumato wedges and a dollop of reduced-fat Greek yogurt. Read on to get the recipe.
The veggies are cooked before an egg mixture is added to the pan. The key is to use a saute pan that is oven safe. Once the frittata is set, stick the whole thing in the oven for it to finish cooking, then brown the top under the broiler.
This way you avoid having to flip the frittata — a step that's resulted in an eggy mess all over my floor more than once. To get the uncomplicated method to this adaptable dish, which can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, keep reading.
