Weekends are the perfect time to sleep in and enjoy a leisurely homemade breakfast. With these 'lazy' breakfast ideas you'll be able to make a feast in just minutes - leaving plenty of time leftover for more important things like savoring that second cup of coffee. Here's what to make this weekend:
Frittata is Italy's answer to quiche. Not only does it not require a crust but it also doesn't require baking (although a quick run under the broiler works wonders). Make this easy breezy zucchini frittata for an awesome lazy breakfast. Don't have zucchini? Add sauteéd onions, kale, peppers...let your imagination guide you.
Greek Yogurt with Honey and Pistachios
This no-cook recipe is the ultimate way to make breakfast on the fly. Creamy, thick and rich Greek yogurt is topped with a drizzle of honey and shelled pistachios. It offers a dose of protein, sweetness and crunch. Oh yeah, and it also doubles as dessert in a pinch.
As long as you've got a waffle iron, making homemade waffles for breakfast is within your reach. If you don't have buttermilk use the vinegar trick (add one tablespoon of vinegar to one cup of milk, let stand for a few minutes and you'll get that nice tang). A great idea is to make the batter the night before and you'll have everything ready to go in the morning. Just let the batter come to room temperature before adding to the waffle iron.
Fruit Skewers with Chocolate
This is seriously the prettiest way to enjoy fruit salad. Skewer your favorite fruit and make a super quick chocolate sauce for dipping. This recipe is a winner and you'll want to make it again and again...guaranteed.
Dal is one of those recipes that goes all the way back to the Indus Valley Civilisation. Unlike dishes such as biryani, brought to India by the Moghuls, it is one of those foods that has always been there. It is therefore a building block of Indian culture.
