I wish I could help you but I have raisin bran day in and day out. If I want a treat, I make a homemade "egg McMuffin" My kids eat oatmeal often. I learned how to make instant type packages. I can't remember the details off the top of my head (and I have to be somewhere today -for the whole day ) but I can post it later if you'd like.
Maybe I'll get some ideas here for something less boring than raisin bran....

Not sure what 'level' veggie you are, but this doesn't have meat!

Monkey Bread -

Set up the night before in a greased bundt pan:

14-18 frozen dinner rolls (I like Rhodes)

Sprinkle with:
1 lrg package vanilla or butterscotch cook'n'serve pudding (dry)
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup melted butter

Cover lightly with foil and set out overnight to thaw/rise. In the morning you uncover and bake in a 350 degree oven until it's nice and toasty (about 20 minutes). I keep the foil ready as 'burn backup' in case the sugar on top is getting too brown. Once it's baked, give it a few minutes to settle and then turn it out on a platter (be careful with that hot molten sugar).

You can add nuts, skip the cinnamon, add dried fruit, increase/decrease sugar, etc. The above recipe is how we like it, but it's open to a lot of interpretation.

Breakfast is my favorite meal (IHOP is my favorite restaurant)! I am a Honey Bunches fan, but I really like the 'homemade' stuff too. Okay, well, you sound sick of eggs, so I won't talk about omelets, but one of my favorite recipes calls for eggs - hope that's okay... It's taken from the book 'Depression Era Recipes' by Patricia R. Wagner, which is a really good cookbook.

Ingredients:
2 large boiled potatoes
6 slices bacon, chopped
1 onion
6 eggs
1/4 c. milk
1/2 t. salt
pepper

Directions:
Fry bacon until crisp and pour off some of the fat. Add the onion and fry for a few minutes. Dice the potatoes and add to bacon, fry until browned. Beat eggs a little, add milk, salt and pepper. Pour over potato mixture. Cook, stirring often, until eggs are set.

This recipe is soooo good, and very filling, I love it! Umm, also, do you make french toast? That's a fave around my house. Also stuffed french toast (like at IHOP), I'll have to ask my sister for the recipe... I may end up posting more. I really like breakfast!!

Oh, and aimeesrockworks, monkey bread is really good too, great recipe!

Good idea about the french toast auxi. Here's how I make it.

6 eggs
1/4 cup milk
a little vanilla (optional)
a little cinnamon (optional)

Whip the eggs and add the other ingredients. Heat the frying pan and coat the bottom of it with butter. Dip one slice of bread at at time in the egg mixture and flip it over. Set it in the pan and let it cook until the bottom side is golden brown. Flip it and let the second side brown. Eat and repeat until your tummy is full.

This is the simplest recipe I know of and you can use as many or as few eggs as you want. I never measure the milk, I just pour a little bit in and call it good.

Yum! I'd love to see more f.t. recipes!

I'm veggie also I usually have yogurt (I still do dairy at this point) and fruit with a homemade trail mix.
Sometimes I'll have oatmeal with some quinoa and flax seed mixed in along with some milk and fresh/frozen berries (yummy)
buttermilk pancakes..
eggs with different types of veggies and soy "meat" mixed in there...

Sidenote: are you by any chance on veggieboards?

In our house we love Egg in nest for breakfast...

Ingredients

  • 1 slice bread
  • 1 teaspoon butter or margarine
  • 1 egg
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
Directions

Use a 3-inch cookie cutter to cut a shape out of the bread. Melt the butter in a griddle or frying pan. Place the bread in the pan and break an egg into the hole. Lay the cutout shape in the pan wherever it will fit and toast until golden brown. Sprinkle the egg with salt and pepper.
When the egg is cooked on the bottom and before the bread becomes too brown, flip the egg nest to toast the other side and finish cooking the egg, about 1 minute. Serve with toasted shape.

During the week, the oldest kiddo usually just has cold cereal for breakfast. I tend to keep bagels on hand as well. On the weekends, it's usually pancakes or waffles. I have several recipes on my blog (link is in my signature). I have a couple new recipes that I need to post, though.

This last weekend my mom made some sort of baked french toast that had peach slices on top. It wasn't bad! I need to get the recipe from her.

I like oatmeal, believe it or not, lol. But I do NOT like the instant kind, that's just me... I prefer the regular rolled oats that you cook on top of the stove; I'll usually add some fruit of some kind (blueberries are a fave), a little cinnamon, brown sugar and sometimes some nuts. I've always wanted to try the steel cut oats, just haven't.

I've had a craving for grits lately. Cheese grits.

The egg in a nest that DoilyMania posted is good too (I usually call it egg in a hole, or toad in a hole...why? I don't know!). It's really good with leftover french bread.

Cinnamon Rolls!!!

How do you feel about biscuits and gravy? Or just biscuits? I love buttermilk biscuits, although we tend to serve them more at night... Anyway, here's a great recipe: buttermilk biscuits. It makes a lot, so prepare to have leftovers or cut the recipe in half (or not, depending on how many your family can eat!).

Dangit...I'm getting hungry now...

You could get the sausage and pancake breakfast at McDonald's. I don't think there's any meat in that.

(McDonald's does have great biscuits! Yum!!)
