44 Unexpected Savory Breakfasts

From Cheesy Macaroni Pancakes to Spicy Potato Waffles

— March 13, 2015 — Lifestyle
Creative food blogs provide a wide range of experimental breakfasts foods that infuse savory flavors and international ingredients to create some delicious but unexpected combinations, like cheesy macaroni pancakes and spicy potato waffles.

From pancake and sausage corn dogs and herb-infused buns, to a high energy-enabling combination of bacon and cheese-filled scones, there really is no shortage of out-of-the-box breakfast foods one can whip up with the ingredients already housed in most kitchens. With an emphasis on spicy sauces and tomato-infused dishes like the delicious Israeli shakshuka, there are plenty of original recipe ideas that don't include sugary cereals or jelly-filled donuts.

Breakfast is arguably the most important meal of the day, but it unfortunately takes place at what often feels like the most uninspiring time to cook. Creative recipes, such as the hearty breakfast lasagna, offer the chance to awaken anyone out of a boring breakfast food slumber.
