Eggs Benedict Light

Greek yogurt is the base of this thick and creamy version of hollandaise sauce and just a touch of mayonnaise and butter give it some richness. We've also subbed in a whole-wheat English muffins for a little fiber and whole-grain oomph. Eggs Benedict without the guilt—at last!

Something magical happens when you bake eggs with cream: They turn into a dense, silky custard, becoming much more than the sum of their parts-plus, they're super fast.

Eggs on Potato Chips

Potato chips for breakfast?  That's right. The chips act like super crispy hashbrowns, but you don't have to fry up any potatoes.

This puffed pancake works nicely as either an elegant breakfast dish or a rustic dessert. No syrup necessary either, just squeeze with lemon and dust with powdered sugar.

French Toast Bites

We love this kid-friendly French toast created by Cindy Bates. Regular French toast can be soggy in the middle, but bite-size cubes mean more crispy surface area.
