These traditional quick breakfast recipes will start your day off right! You may want a simple breakfast with homemade granola. Extra easy, extra healthy. Or, you may want a full-course breakfast buffet including a Cheese Omelet.
My very favorite breakfast is an "Apfelpfannkuchen" or apple pancake that I make in the oven. It's easy to make for a large group and I often make it when the grandkids stay overnight. It looks so pretty, all puffed up, when it's served right from the oven.
As a special request from one of my boys, I've included easy German Potato Pancakes. Even though these pancakes are usually used for breakfasts, I often made them for supper. Served with sugar and applesauce, these are always a treat!
Granola is my hubby's favorite. He has it for breakfast as well as throughout the day as a snack. I find it super easy to make lots and every time I make it, it's slightly different.
I add different things to the granola in differing amounts. Sometimes I go all out with lots and lots of nuts. Other times, it's all different types of dried fruits. Sometimes, it's quite plain. You choose. Just follow the same method.
Of course, there's traditional scrambled eggs served bacon. You can even try an easy-to-make oven-baked bacon, if you want to make lots at once without the mess!
Similar to Italian gnocchi potato dumplings, these German potato noodles, Schupfnudeln, are a traditional side or main dish in southern Germany. So easy to make! Really!
Oma's German cucumber salad is so delightfully refreshing, especially in the summer. Since it's from the south, there's no cream in it which makes it a perfect picnic side!
Oma's best German potato salad recipe is traditional in northern Germany. Yes, it's made with mayonnaise. In the South, it's without mayo. Both authentic and wunderbar!
