#1. The Perfect Irish Breakfast

First up of course must be the Irish breakfast! Here’s how to make the perfect cooked breakfast – all you need are some tasty produce, some easy tunes on the radio, and great big pot of tea! You will need:

  • Sausages
  • Rashers of your choice (oak smoked, beechwood smoked, dry cure or mild cure)
  • Black pudding cut to 2cm thick
  • White pudding cut to 2cm thick
  • Free range egg, cooked to taste
  • Half a tomato per person

 2. Clonakilty Black Pudding & Bacon Breakfast Salad

If you love a cooked breakfast and adore salad, then this tasty Clonakilty Black Pudding & Crispy Bacon Salad will be a winner. Tasty salad leaves are topped with crispy bacon, black pudding, cannellini beans and poached eggs. Yum!

#3. Breakfast Kebab


For something a bit different, why not make up some Breakfast Kebabs that can go into the oven or onto the BBQ for a tasty breakfast treat. They are super easy to make. You will need:

  • Sausages

  • Button mushrooms
  • Black pudding, sliced
  • White pudding, sliced
  • Bacon rashers
  • oil for brushing
  • wooden kebab skewers

***Top Tip*** Soak the Skewers in cold water for at least 35 mins (the longer the better) to stop them from burning.

#7. Homemade Breakfast Bread

Homemade breads and loaves make a lovely addition to any breakfast table. Prepare in advance if you’re pushed for time, and once stored correctly should last all week. Serve fresh or toasted for a tasty treat anytime of the day.

Try out our Maple Yoghurt Pound Cake recipe, Apple Cranberry and Walnut Bread, Tea Brack or the more traditional Brown Bread or Soda Bread. And if you prefer rolls here’s a recipe for healthy wholegrain rolls with oats and seeds.

#8. Tasty Potato Cakes

Brunch Ideas potato cakes

These Sour Cream and Chive Potato Cakes would be lovely with some cooked sausages, bacon or some smoked salmon. For convenience, you can also make them in advance and store in the fridge for the morning.

#9. Healthy Homemade Muffins


A muffin is a great easy option for breakfast, and with the right ingredients, can deliver a healthy nutritious start to the day. Try these Healthy Carrot Muffins, Breakfast Berry Muffins or Blueberry Muffins, or if you prefer something savoury to start your day, these Whole Wheat Ham and Cheese Muffins are yum!

These would also make great lunchbox fillers or after school snacks for hungry kids.

#10. Breakfast Smoothie

Blueberry smoothie

Smoothies are a great start to your day, packed full of healthy ingredients, and easily made in any blender. You can pretty much add any combination of fruit or vegetables you have at home but berries and bananas in various combination always go down well with kids – here’s a recipe for Peach & Blueberry Smoothie.

You can use alternatives to yoghurt too – I use coconut water or almond/nut milks to add some extra goodness to our smoothies at home. We love this dairy-free Banana, Blueberry & Orange Smoothie from Vitamix or this High Fibre Broccoli Smoothie from Super Healthy Kids. Lots more ideas in these 10 Quick & Easy Breakfast Smoothies for Kids.

#11. Scrambled Egg Baskets

Breakfast Recipes with Eggs

Add a bit of drama to your scrambled eggs by creating a basket from a slice or bread and topping with cheese before melting under the grill. Yum!

  • To create the baskets, cut the crusts off your favourite sliced bread, heat the oven to 200C and lightly butter both sides of the bread. Press each slice into a muffin tin and bake for approx 10 minutes.
  • Cook your scrambled eggs and divide between your baskets.
  • Grate over some cheese and place under the grill for 3 or 4 minutes, until the cheese has melted.

#12. No Cook Oat & Berry Breakfast Pot


Simplify your mornings by preparing these No Cook Oat and Raspberry Breakfast Pots the night before that are healthy and nutritious. If you’re grabbing breakfast on the run, prepare in handy pots you can take with you.

For something truly different, try this recipe for Coconut Pomegranate Overnight Oats from a sunshiny day, or this recipe for Overnight Chocolate Chia Oat Pudding from To Her Core, would make a lovely indulgent, yet healthy, breakfast treat.
