If your New Year’s Eve was full of Champagne toasts, you may be ready for some actual toast. Skip the diner breakfast, muster up a little energy, and make something at home instead — these hearty recipes are guaranteed to satisfy cravings (and as a bonus, you won’t have to leave the house). Don’t worry, New Year’s resolutions don’t kick in until tomorrow.
|Toasted Breakfast Sandwich
Crispy bacon, gooey Cheddar cheese and a fried egg sandwiched between two slices of toasted bread — this is everything you want in one delicious bite.
|Udon Noodle Soup with Pork
This soup is inspired by the soothing noodle soups that are so popular in Japanese cuisine, filled with thick, chewy udon noodles and meaty shiitake mushrooms. The steamy, savory broth is positively revitalizing.
|Cheese-and-Marmalade French Toast Sandwiches
This is French toast like you’ve never experienced it: stacked and filled with cream cheese and marmalade and browned until just crispy on the griddle.
|Poached Chicken Soup with Lemon and Spinach
We all know chicken soup heals the soul. This is comfort in a bowl, with shredded chicken, bright, fresh lemon and wilted spinach leaves. Add a spoonful of Sriracha for an extra kick.
|Chilaquiles with Tomatillo Salsa
Top a stack of tortilla chips with chicken, sunny-side up eggs and plenty of queso fresco for an over-the-top breakfast that’s easier than it looks. For a shortcut, use your favorite prepared salsa.
|Old-Fashioned Buttermilk Waffles
These are diner-style waffles you can make in your own kitchen, toasty with a touch of sweetness. Melt a pat of butter on top, drizzle with maple syrup, and your morning will feel a lot happier.
|Bacon Grilled Cheese Sandwich
Save your exotic cheeses for another use. This sandwich never tastes better than it does with Cheddar and Monterey Jack, thinly sliced and melted on the stovetop. Bacon slices add just the right amount of crunch.
|Balsamic Bloody Mary
Sometimes a little hair of the dog is just what the doctor ordered. Here, balsamic vinegar adds its signature punch. If you’re up for it, invite your friends over for a Bloody Mary bar!
