    Overnight Gingerbread Steel-Cut Oatmeal

    Rich with molasses and warming spices, this oatmeal brings to mind old-fashioned gingerbread. A quick boil at night and an overnight lounge in the fridge means the notoriously slow-cooking grains need only 10 minutes of simmering.

    Tiny dried currants and a sprinkle of crunchy pecans give these classic cinnamon rolls a little upgrade.

    Doughnut Muffins

    This tasty loaf comes packed with the flavors of the season, and a streusel topping makes it feel special.
  • Recipe

    Spicy Southwestern Bloody Mary

    Tis the season for imbibing at breakfast. Though this one is made is "virgin" style, you can always add a shot of vodka if you don't mind the possibility of landing on Santa's naughty list.
  • Recipe

    Classic Eggs Benedict

    The key to this brunch classic is delicious simplicity: poached fresh eggs, Canadian bacon, toasted English muffins, and an authentic hollandaise sauce.
  • Recipe

    Overnight Banana Sticky Buns with Pecans

    Ripe bananas make these buns super moist and fragrant and infuse the caramel-pecan sauce with rich flavor. Preparing the dough and the filling the night before means the buns just need to rise and bake in the morning.

    Don't settle for plain old French toast when you can enjoy this deluxe rendition. It tastes only better if assembled in the baking dish the night before.
