8 Chai Breakfast Recipes To Spice Up Your Morning


By Cooking Panda

Several months ago, I learned how to make chai concentrate so I could enjoy delicious lattes at home. The scent of the ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and cardamom throughout my apartment was absolutely heavenly, and I’ve made the chai concentrate several times since then.

However, I wasn’t quite sure what other recipes could use the cardamom pods, the signature spice in chai. Desserts? Curries? Drinks? As someone who enjoys the sweeter things in life, I decided to start with breakfast and dessert recipes that use these delicious chai spices. 

Here are a few breakfast dishes to enjoy at your next brunch, to impress your coworkers at the office, and even to replenish you after your morning workout!

Baked Chai French Toast

French toast is such a delicious meal, yet so easy to make. Take your French toast to the next level by adding delicious chai spices.

Chai Tea Popovers

These light and fluffy popovers will be an instant hit.

Chai-Spiced Pumpkin Oatmeal Muffins with Vanilla Bean Cream Cheese Glaze

Chai, pumpkin, cream cheese, and vanilla bean come together in this deliciously seasonal dish. Not only that, but these muffins are actually pretty good for you.

A perfect beverage to whip up first thing in the morning or after a workout session. I would have been more excited to go out on a run this morning if this drink had been waiting for me when I got back.

Baked Chai Doughnuts

While I wouldn’t call this a health food, baked doughnuts are healthier than raised doughnuts. At least, that’s what I plan on telling myself after I’ve eaten a few of these.

Here Are The Top 10 Breakfast For Dinner Recipes On Pinterest


By Cooking Panda

Ditching meal conventions and having brinner, or breakfast for dinner, is trending, according to Pinterest. Some recipes, like breakfast lasagna and quesadillas, are especially hot among all-day breakfast lovers.

Here are the top 10 most-pinned brinner recipes on Pinterest, because there’s nothing better than ending your day with the most important meal.

1. Tater Tot Sausage Breakfast Casserole

The world’s best animal products — sausage, eggs and cheese — tossed with (arguably) the best form of potato: the tot. Whip this up for overnight guests one evening, and stick it in the oven the next morning.

2. Ham and Cheese Breakfast Quesadillas

They’re handheld, they’re buttery and they’re cheesy. They’ll make the perfect appetizer for your next brinner party.

3. Bacon and Corn Griddle Cakes

Douse these savory babies in warm maple syrup, or use them as a vehicle for eggs — and maybe more bacon.

4. Kielbasa, Pepper, Onion and Potato Hash

Hashes are a super versatile (and mostly healthy) brinner meal. Serve them with runny eggs, crusty bread, salad or all of the above. This one uses a turkey kielbasa (sausage) and nutritious veggies, cooked with olive oil in a skillet.

5. Bacon Pancake Dippers (From 30 Super Fun Breakfast Ideas Worth Waking Up For)

Try these easy, dunkable dippers for a tasty brinner side dish. Check out the rest of the slideshow to find 29 other recipes, including breakfast egg rolls and surprise cheddar biscuits.

6. Homemade Freezer Breakfast Sandwiches

Make a week’s worth of sandwiches, customize them as you see fit (sausage instead of ham, American instead of cheddar, etc.) and store them in the freezer. They’re ready after a few minutes in the microwave. Let us also take comfort in the fact that this blog is called Eat Cake For Dinner, so this cook understands the value of meal hybrids.

7. Oven Roasted Breakfast Potatoes

This recipe doctors up classic roasted taters with crumbled bacon, onion, rosemary, paprika and thyme for an aromatic twist.

8. Breakfast Lasagna

This dish has serious layers; literally, delightfully visible layers of French toast, scrambled eggs, ham, cheese and hash browns, but also layers of flavors and textures. Sweet, salty, pillowy and crunchy.

9. Twice Baked Bacon & Egg Potatoes

Combine a steak dinner staple, the twice-baked potato, with an egg, and you’ve got a killer, man-approved brinner dish. The filling uses leftover bacon fat instead of butter. Genius.

10. 41 Wild & Healthy Waffle Recipes

There’s something for everyone on this list of 41 nutritionist-approved waffle recipes. Sweet, savory, sandwiched and standalone. Think brie and blueberry waffle grilled cheese, buffalo chicken waffle fries and chocolate waffles with peanut butter sauce.
