Breakfast is the most important meal of the day… isn’t it? Hot breakfasts are where it’s at on a cold morning. Cereal or a granola bar just won’t do. But if your idea of a hot breakfast is toast, get ready for a kick to your tastebuds. These piping hearty hot breakfasts pack a lot of flavor into the first meal of the day.
More than the porridge, you can take a tour and see how cinnamon rolls, muffins, and bagels can make a difference! And insert tons of protein for a healthy breakfast in there. They’re so good, you won’t even mind getting up early (or at least you’ll feel a little better when you smell breakfast). Love these breakfast recipes!
Hearty Hot Breakfast Ideas
1. Amazing Hot Breakfast: Ultimate Breakfast Hotdogs
Try something a little different taste with one of these Ultimate Breakfast Hotdogs. With potatoes, eggs, cheese, bacon, tomatoes, and more, it’s sure to fill you up and make you smile. You can make your own hashbrowns by shredding potatoes, or you could also use pre-shredded hashbrowns (they come frozen or dehydrated). The eggs are cooked sunny side up, and the crunchy bacon adds the perfect touch to this delicious and easy breakfast.
2. Savory Oatmeal with Cheddar Cheese and Fried Egg
Not in the mood for a sweet breakfast? You can still enjoy your oats, but make it Savory Oatmeal with Cheddar and Fried Egg. What a hearty bowl! You can make the oats in the microwave if you’re in a hurry, or you can make them with steel-cut oats. The steel-cut oats take longer to make but have more texture than rolled oats. Fry up sausage with some peppers and onion and enjoy this hearty and delicious hot breakfast!
3. Easy Wrapped Hot Breakfast Sandwiches
These Easy Wrapped Breakfast Sandwiches are the ideal breakfast for weekday mornings. Send the kids off to school with full bellies that will hold them over until lunchtime. The secret to these delicious little pockets of breakfast is rolling out some canned biscuits, placing your filling inside and then rolling it all up to contain everything. These are perfect for on-the-go breakfasts since they are self-contained, and make for a mess-free breakfast at the table, too! These can also be made with bacon, which can be easily made in the oven while you prep the other ingredients.
4. Southwestern Tomatillo Tofu Scramble
For a piping hot vegetarian option, try the Southwestern Tomatillo Tofu Scramble. It’s loaded with veggies and packed with flavor.
5. Quick and Easy Hot Breakfast Pie
A Quick and Easy Breakfast Pie with sausage, eggs, hash browns, and cheese really hits the spot when you wake up hungry. Use pre-made pie dough to make this even easier.

6. Cinnamon Fruit Biscuits
Cinnamon Fruit Biscuits are an easy, hot breakfast that kids and adults alike will look forward to. You can use your own favorite biscuit recipe or refrigerated biscuits to keep things simple.
Cinnamon fruit biscuits are pretty versatile. I used strawberry jam in the center, but you could easily substitute any type of jam you have. I think the next time I make these, I will try grape and apricot jam. Oh wait – what about orange marmalade? See? There are so many great varieties that you will have these biscuits in the oven every weekend.
7. Piping Hot Breakfasts: Slow Cooker Apple Cinnamon Steel-Cut Oats
For those mornings when you just don’t have time to prep a hot breakfast, Slow Cooker Apple Cinnamon Steel Cut Oats saves the day. You can put it in the crockpot the night before and wake up to a hot, steamy breakfast the next morning. Let’s face it. Steel-cut oats can take a long time to cook. So throw them in the slow cooker with plenty of milk the night before and you will wake up to delicious and hearty steel-cut oats!
8. Breakfast Pizza
Breakfast Pizza isn’t just leftover pizza that you eat the next morning. This version includes bacon, asparagus, and Parmesan cheese for a unique and tasty flavor combination. These are the ingredients you will need to put together this tasty and beautiful masterpiece- cause who says pizza has to be just for lunch or dinner, right?
- Storebought Pizza Crust (or homemade)

- fresh dill, chopped
- green onion, thinly sliced

- extra shredded parmesan for topping
9. Mexican Breakfast Pizza
Or how about a Mexican Breakfast Pizza with spicy beef chorizo, tomatoes, cheese, and hash browns? Another breakfast pizza!? Yep! Who knew pizza could be so versatile, right?
10. Sausage and Cheese Breakfast Quesadillas
Sausage and Cheese Breakfast Quesadillas are tasty and so easy to make. You can have a hot breakfast ready in just minutes! Just cook your sausage, then heat up your tortillas with some cheese, fold, and enjoy! These are very quick and simple to make and are absolutely filling and delicious!
11. Breakfast Lasagna
Or how about a Breakfast Lasagna? Layers of pancakes, eggs, and sausage… drizzle it with maple syrup. Yum! You can also make a maple syrup bechamel sauce by melting some butter in a saucepan and adding flour to it. In another saucepan, heat up some maple syrup and milk and then pour into the butter mixture and stir. Not in the mood to create your bechamel sauce? Don’t worry, it’s just as delicious with regular syrup.
12. Healthy Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies
Don’t feel guilty about having cookies for breakfast! Just make these Healthy Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies to get in some of the good stuff. I absolutely love the idea of healthy cookies for breakfast! They are so easy to grab and go with if needed, and feel like an absolute treat! These cookies are gluten-free and contain no flour or butter at all. It’s a simple mixture of peanut butter and rolled oats, and the best part is that you can have them ready in less than 20 minutes! Easy, delicious, and healthy? Yes, please!
13. Hot Breakfasts Comfort: Creamy Baked Eggs
Creamy Baked Eggs with a thick slice of buttered toast will be a comforting morning meal on a chilly day. These baked eggs are wonderful for busy mornings but are also a great option for feeding a crowd as they are so easy to make and hands-off for the most part. Keep in mind that they are made in individual ramekins and will be served there, so they will continue to cook after you remove them from the oven. Make sure that guests are aware that the containers can be hot! The secret to this creamy and delicious egg recipe is adding heavy cream to the eggs before cooking.
14. Spicy Sausage Breakfast Sandwich with Chiptole Gravy
I don’t know about you, but my favorite breakfasts always include a heaping ladle of gravy. Try this Spicy Sausage Breakfast Sandwich with Chipotle Gravy if you feel the same way! These can be made with homemade or storebought biscuits, and if you prefer a heartier gravy, use 2 pounds of sausage instead of one. You can even mix up the types of sausages that you use, for example, use 1 pound of Italian and one pound of hot sausage.
15. Bacon Breakfast Casserole
Breakfast just isn’t the same without a mouthful of bacon, is it? This Bacon Breakfast Casserole bakes up in just 35 minutes, so it’s perfect for a Sunday brunch! One of the secrets to this recipe to use bread that is a bit stale already since it is easier to cut. You could also use chopped-up ham or sausage instead of bacon. Another variation to this amazing casserole is to add some vegetables either inside or on top. This can be veggies such as tomatoes or onions or asparagus.
16. Hot Breakfasts- Burritos
Breakfast Burritos are portable, hot, and delicious. Stuff them with your favorite breakfast fixings, veggies, and cheese. Easy peasy! You can include hashbrowns, eggs, and your favorite breakfast meat such as bacon, sausage, or ham. These would also be wonderful for a crowd, as you can create a breakfast burrito buffet line so everyone can top it with their favorite veggies and sauces. They can be served with salsa or eaten plain. Either way, they are delicious.
17. Piping Hot Breakfasts: Herbed Breakfast Stuffing Casserole
Around the holidays, you have to try this Herbed Breakfast Stuffing Casserole. It’s a great breakfast for a crowd. The easiest way to get this done is to cook the meat and chop it up, and then layer everything into the casserole dish. This is made with Herbed Stuffing, although you could use regular or even cut your own bread to make homemade stuffing. But if you are feeding a crowd, I recommend you stick to the bagged stuffing so you can get back to the fun!
18. Paleo Grain-Free English Muffin Breakfast Sandwiches
Even if you’re on a grain-free diet, you can still enjoy a delicious breakfast sandwich. Try these Paleo Grain-Free English Muffin Breakfast Sandwiches with eggs, avocado, and turkey bacon. These delicious sandwiches are grain- and gluten-free so you can still enjoy breakfast sandwiches!
