Because no one wants to feel hangry.
Thanksgiving is all about the dinner — but you can't just eat one meal a day! And no one wants to be hangry as you wait for the turkey to be served. An easy and delicious breakfast gives the energy you need for a day of socializing — and even more eating. You can also whip these up for the next morning if you are having family stay over after dinner. While some may fast all day in preparation for the big feast, we prefer to double-down and kick off a celebratory day with any of these special breakfast recipes. From sweet and spicy breakfast options that mimic the flavors of pumpkin pie to savory and filling toasts, sandwiches and casseroles, there are so many ways to start the Turkey Day festivities nice n’ early.
Rise and shine to an easy overnight breakfast that you just pop in the oven while brewing your coffee or serve up a flavor-packed classic (french toast! pancakes!) that you could practically make in your sleep. After all, you’ll need your energy for the Thanksgiving turkey, of course, plus the endless side dish recipes (mashed potatoes, turkey stuffing, green bean casserole, you name it), and the obligatory Thanksgiving desserts (a.k.a pie, pie, and more pie).
Or maybe you’re skipping the big dinner this year? Try one of our Thanksgiving brunch recipes that are the perfect excuse to stretch your morning into a long, lazy afternoon. No matter what your Thanksgiving traditions are, we can all agree that these holiday breakfasts need to be easy, requiring few ingredients and minimal dishes to wash. Your kitchen has a big day ahead of itself, after all!
