More and more people are choosing to go meatless as they discover great vegetarian recipes.
Breakfast is my absolute favorite meal of the day.
Let me qualify that a little better, breakfast foods are my favorite meals of the day and that could mean breakfast. lunch or dinner.
As much as possilbe I like to incorporate fruit into my meals. For these non-meat meals I have included some of my most delicious combinations for you to enjoy.

#1 French Toast Combo - French Toast with apples and whipped topping. Grits and hash browns.
Although I do like my own Cinnamon French Toast that I make from scratch, I am not very good at making my own hash browns. So I buy frozen shredded hash browns and just cook up what I need.
The grits are Quaker's (store bought) pre-packaged and measured. If I didn't buy my grits in packets they would probably turn out like concrete. I'm a southern girl, but not a southern cook! This way is safer, trust me.
You can use syrup if you like, I prefer fruit and butter. As for the fruit and whipped topping, I generally like cherries, but for this photo I chose to pretty it up and used apples and whipped cream. I don't put whipped topping on mine, but don't you agree it looks good with it?

How to Make French Toast, Hash Browns & Grits Fast & Easy Recipes
I really like how the Chefs on these videos prepare several breakfast dishes. They are quick and easy. Some do include adding meat to the meal, but you don't have to. What's nice is that in video #5, you can do meat or leave it out and the trifle will still be outstanding. Think I might have this for dinner tonight! Yum ...

- Breakfast Trifle Grits
Traditional breakfast with a touch of elegance.
Beautiful Dishes for Your Creations
On the above video (#5) Breakfast Trifle Grits with the Neeley's, they used mini trifle bowls. I like this particular set because not only are they beautiful, but they can be used for so many things. Add a touch of elegance to your table by using pretty glassware to show off your creations.
Crystal dishes can be used as a mini trifle bowl or a votive holder
They stand 4-1/4-inch high. Handle with care when washing.
Wash by hand with a mild dish soap.
Griddle or Stove?
Do you use a griddle or stove when making breakfast dishes?
5 Reasons Why I Use the Griddle
- I can prepare more at one time.
- I can cook more than one thing at one time.
- I can keep the food hot in the warming tray.
- I can use less pans cooking on a griddle.
- I can keep the heat on the griddle and not in the kitchen.
Oster Griddle with Warming Tray
This electric griddle is an example of what I use to cook a banquet of a breakfast. It has a warming tray to keep the food until I'm ready to serve it. The sides stay cool and it's easy to clean-up. You can cook a lot of food in a short time with this large grill.
Warming tray slides from underneath to keep food warm
Removable, adjustable temperature control and cool touch edges
10-inch by 18-1/2-inch cooking surface with nonstick coating

Did you know that the term breakfast actually means to break the fast.
When you eat in the morning you are breaking the fast from the last meal, which is usually 8 hours.
We basically know that oatmeal is a very good superfood, but how many of us eat it?
How often do you eat oatmeal (any flavor)?

#3 Oatmeal Combo - Oatmeal, Rye toast, tea, fruit
I can tell you that this is a fabulous breakfast (or any time of the day) meal. It's one that I enjoy often. Try adding cinnamon, raisins and diced apples to the oatmeal before cooking to get a fantastic flavor. (Follow oatmeal cooking directions on the carton.)
For this meal (that I actually ate for dinner) I added more fresh fruit to the top. Most of the time I don't add any almond milk and enjoy it just the way it is. The cantalope was at the peak of flavor and the Russian Rye toast gives it that crunch that your taste buds want.
Usually I serve this with a cup of decaf tea, but for this particular sitting I enjoyed Lady Grey (Breakfast) tea.
