Fresh Takes on Spring Breakfasts
Feb 25, 2013 | 11:26 am
As the shortest month of the year comes to a close and we prepare to start March, it’s finally appropriate to be ready for spring. While winter is known for hot and hearty, stick-to-your-ribs dinners, springtime tends to be associated with just the opposite: light, fruit and veggie-filled breakfasts and brunches.
Whether you’re looking to get a head start on your Easter morning meal or simply a light recipe for pretty spring mornings, the following easy breakfast recipes are perfect for starting off spring on a fresh note:
Very Veggie Egg Mug Scrambler
It doesn’t get much healthier than fresh vegetables and good-for-you egg whites, and this 10 minute breakfast is chock full of both. This scrambler can be made in the microwave and is a quick and healthy way to start off a sunny spring day.
Fruited Puff Pancake
Farmers markets start to come back in season once spring arrives, and this fruited puff pancake is a great way to show off your fresh fruit. The puffiness of the pancakes puts a lighter spin on this traditional breakfast food and it’s a dish impressive enough to serve at Easter brunch.
Blueberry Lemon Coffee Cake
Blueberry and lemon flavors have always complemented each other so nicely but they tend to disappear during the winter months. Bring back the blueberry-lemon combination with this coffee cake for a sweet and fruit-filled morning bite.
South of the Border Quiche
When you think of a quiche recipe, your mind might go straight to a dish that’s heavy, bacon, cream and cheese-filled—but quiches can be light, too! This South of the Border Quiche will get you ready for warm weather and is full of fresh herbs and veggies for a light breakfast with a definite kick.
Try out one of these light and healthier breakfast recipes today and it will officially be spring before you know it!
