One of the most tempting things to get us out of bed in the morning is a good, hearty meal. And when that meal is a cheesy breakfast, then turning off “snooze” and jumping out of bed gets a whole lot easier. Who doesn’t want to start their day off with some gooey deliciousness?
We could easily eat cheese for every meal of the day, but granted, that’s easy to say when cheese is basically your BFF anyway. But even if you’re not an extremely devoted dairy advocate, a touch of cheese can take a breakfast dish from boring to life-changing. Consider something as simple as an omelet: just a sprinkle of cheese makes it eons better. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Any breakfast that inspires you to become a morning person is a great one in our book, and a decadent meal can be a great way to start your day off on a good note. No one ever said you couldn’t treat yo’self in the morning, after all. These 12 recipes will have you setting your alarm a smidge earlier and grabbing that cheese grater for optimal satisfaction. From creamy potatoes to filling sandwiches, these breakfast recipes are sure to please.
