Lazy weekend breakfasts are something I long for.

I look forward to them when weeks are hectic and weekends involve traveling.

The breakfasts are amazing. And all I have to do is make the coffee.

The Taster typically adds any veggies and cheese that we have in the fridge into an amazing omelette or scramble.

The kitchen gets a little messy. But it’s worth it. :)


Breakfast Omelete / Scramble Ideas: 

  • roasted red peppers + leeks + feta + arugula (shown above)
  • zucchini + onions + tomatoes + feta
  • caramelized onions + spinach + smoked gouda
  • kale + onion + goat cheese
  • peppers + leeks + onion + goat cheese
What is your favorite weekend breakfast or omelette fillings?

    My favorite weekend breakfast is: whole wheat everything bagel, vegetable light cream cheese, red onion, lettuce, tomato, and LOX. LOVE LOVE LOVE! I haven’t had one in a while and think I need to treat myself this weekend. ;) Congrats on the wedding and cannot wait to check out the pictures!

    I love to make crepes on the weekends and fill them with fruits, jams, nut butters or yogurt.

    I love a few over easy eggs + buttered toast. If I’m feeling ambitious I’ll make some roasted potatoes and serve the eggs on top.

    But honestly I love almost any type of breakfast food: french toast, omelets, pancakes, casseroles, etc.

    I definitely normally go the sweet route. I love banana nut pancakes. When I am craving an omlettes I love spinach and feta.

    Eggs + goat cheese + black pepper = perfection.

    I am in LOVE with sharp cheese in omelets — feta is my favorite, it’s so salty — and no matter what pancake house we’re at, I have to order eggs. I’ll make whole wheat pancakes at home, but I can’t pass up all the yummy egg dishes when we’re out!

    Favorite weekend breakfast? Hands down: pancakes or french toast.

    Favorite omelet fillings? feta cheese and sauteed spinach and onion, topped with salsa of course!

    I love eggs and usually only make them on the weekend, I really want a big omelet with ham, cheese, spinach and tomatoes.

    Ahhh yummy! I love weekend breakfasts too! Sadly, I don’t love eggs. I always think I do, so I make or order them, but then I feel a little weird after eating them. But I DO love all those veggies and sausage and bacon and of course, cheese!

    I have to second the lox and bagels! It reminds me of being young when my dad would get up early and go to the bagel shop and we’d all sit together and eat bagels and lox with capers and cream cheese together- so relaxing!

    Did the Taster ever have to make breakfast before he was married? Anonymous

    Weekend breakfasts are the best. Love baking in the am, but the problem is you have to wait awhile to eat :)

    We make homemade egg mcmuffins at my house on the weekend. It kicks off lazy starts to the day and I love it too!

    We almost never go out to eat and our kitchen is a perpetual national disaster, but then hopefully our medical bills are lower!
