Nuwave Breakfast Recipes For Busy People

Updated on September 22, 2014

In my last food article I wrote about some of my favorite crockpot chicken recipes for busy people. Today I’d like to talk about another appliance I think every busy person should own and some breakfast recipes to get your day started with little effort.

I’m talking about the Nuwave Infrared Oven. I’m telling you this thing is a life saver. Not just for breakfast, but for any meal. It’s a very versatile appliance with hundreds of easy recipes. Once your ingredients are in, you just set the cook level and the timer. It turns itself off and beeps to alert you when it’s done.

I love it because I can mix my ingredients, put everything in to cook, then go get ready for work while it cooks. By the time I’m out of the shower and dressed breakfast is ready. I do the same thing often in the evenings. I’ll set something to cook then go write. The timer going off is my signal that the writing session is done and it’s time to grub!!!

These three recipes are only a few of the many, many things that can be done with a Nuwave Oven. Also, if you’re single, they now have a half size oven available. I highly recommend this product as it takes the “I don’t have time to cook, so I’ll hit the drive thru.” excuse away.

Ok, enough of my Infomercial Host imitation. On to the food!

Brown Sugar French Toast

A very quick recipe that’s easy to make and gives you zero excuses for skipping breakfast.

Serving size: 2-4 Servings


1/4 cup butter

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1 tablespoon corn syrup

6-8 slices of (1-inch thick) bread, white or wheat

3 large eggs

3/4 cup milk or half and half

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 teaspoon salt


Melt butter with brown sugar and corn syrup in a small saucepan over moderate heat. Stir until smooth. Pour into an 8x8-inch baking dish or 10-inch baking pan. Trim bread crust. Arrange bread in bottom of baking pan (you might have to mash the edges to fit the bread). In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, and milk or half and half, vanilla and salt. Pour over bread. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or overnight. Place baking dish on 1-inch rack and bake on power level high for 30 minutes.

During those 30 minutes it’s cooking you’re getting ready for work. Also since you prep it the night before it takes very little time to get it in the Nuwave and cooking. No excuses!

Spinach Havarti Frittata with Oven Dried Tomatoes

This one is for those who are a bit more health conscious (like I need to be again). It’s also easy to prep and doesn’t require you to stand by the stove or oven.

Serves 2


8 whole eggs

1/2 cup whole milk

2 cups grated havarti

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

2 cups fresh baby spinach

1 clove garlic, minced

Salt & pepper to taste

Oven-Dried Tomatoes Ingredients:

12 plum tomatoes, cut in half

1/8 cup sugar

1/8 cup Kosher salt

1 tablespoon Herb de Provence


1. In 10.5-inch PerfectGreen Fry Pan, heat olive oil on Medium (275 degrees).

2. Add spinach and season with salt and pepper.

3. Cook for 2 minutes, or until spinach wilts.

4. Place cooked spinach in refrigerator to rapidly cool.

5. In bowl, combine eggs, milk, cheese, spinach and garlic.

6. Season mixture with salt and pepper to taste

7. Pour frittata into liner pan and bake on High setting for 30 minutes

Oven Omelet

Serving size on this one is about the same as a slice of pie, but trust me when I tell you that it’s filling!


10 eggs, beaten

½ cup of milk (whole, reduced, fat free…it’s up to your personal tastes)

6 onces shredded Cheddar cheese

1 cup ham or bacon chopped

½ cup green pepper, chopped

¼ onion, chopped (I combine green and white onion. You can use what you please)

1 tablespoon parsley


In a medium bowl, beat the eggs and milk until fluffy. Stir in the cheese, meat, green pepper, and onion. Pour into a greased baking pan (10” or 9”. Either works). Bake on the 1” rack and cook on power level HI for 12-15 minutes. Let sit with the dome on for at least 1 minute and then cut into desired sizes.

That’s it! Another no excuses breakfast that’s sure to leave you feeling full with little effort.

If you already have a Nuwave, let us know about recipes you enjoy and/or try these and let us know how they come out.

If you don't own a Nuwave, I suggest that you get one. I'm one of the world's most average cooks on a stove, but I can create meals using the Nuwave that have people asking me "how'd you make this?". And believe me, If I can do it, you can do it!
