Eggs cook quickly and are loaded with protein.

Under normal circumstances, steel-cut oats take a bit of time to cook, but if you plan ahead and make them in your slow cooker (start them the night before), they'll be ready when you wake up on Thanksgiving morning. And, if you use a liner in your slow cooker, you won't even have to clean up! Click here for a recipe.

Don’t have steel-cut oats? You can use rolled oats (just don’t use instant oats) to make overnight oatmeal. No cooking required — just combine the ingredients and refrigerate overnight. Click here for a recipe.

Yogurt parfaits make a quick and delicious breakfast. Leave containers of granola, dried fruit, seeds, or nuts out the night before and, in the morning, everyone can grab a container of store-bought yogurt and create their own custom parfait.

If you like eggs for breakfast, cook a frittata on Thanksgiving morning; it only takes a few minutes. Toss whatever filling you’re using into a hot oven-safe pan (you can toss in pieces of meat, roasted vegetables, or even leftovers) and pour whisked eggs on top. Cook for a few minutes in the pan and then transfer the frittata to a preheated oven to finish cooking a few minutes more. Click here for our best frittata recipes.

Want a quick and easy breakfast to keep you going all day long? Smash fresh avocado onto pieces of whole-grain toast and then top with virtually anything you like. A drizzle of olive oil, a squeeze of lime juice, and a pinch each of salt and red pepper flakes is classic. If you have boiled eggs, add them too.
