Oma's Quick Breakfast Recipes

➤ by Gerhild Fulson

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 Arme Ritter

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.

Need that “all’s good with the world” feeling? Comfort food will do that. Get your copy of Oma's German favorites in her Comfort Foods e-Cookbook.

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!
