Celebrating National Hot Breakfast Month
There’s something just so deliciously satisfying about a nice hot breakfast: Fresh and comforting, hot breakfast can help you wake up and get ready to take on the day. While most breakfast around here likely consists of something like eggs, meat, and potatoes, there are many other ways to get creative and nourish your body with tasty hot breakfast. And this February, Tacoma Boys is ready to help you celebrate National Hot Breakfast Month with tasty ideas and tips!
Hot Breakfast Month
While a traditional American hot breakfast consists of meat, eggs, and starch, we encourage you to try something new this month. A tasty, healthy breakfast should include plenty of vegetables, plus protein, fat, and fiber to keep you full. Other classic breakfast foods to try can include grits, hash, and baked goods like pancakes. But there’s also no reason not to eat whatever you want for breakfast, regardless of the time of day. Around the world, meals first thing in the morning can consist of soup, noodles, rice, whole grains, seasonal vegetables, eggs, meat, and more. And here at Tacoma Boys, you can find everything you need like these foods to craft your delicious and nourishing hot breakfast!

Quick Breakfast Ideas
Hot breakfast, while tasty and comforting, can also prove difficult if you need quick breakfast ideas. Consider planning and preparing food ahead of time if you’re in need of some quick breakfast ideas. Fresh fruit is one great option to add on to a meal when things get hectic in the morning. And in honor of National Hot Breakfast Month, try hot cereal like oatmeal for a quick and easy breakfast! Hot cereal made of whole grains can be filling and satisfying. For example, these hot cereals from local Bob’s Red Mill can be made in a jiff:
- Instant Oatmeal
- Quick Cooking Steel Cut Oats
- Old Fashioned Whole Grain Rolled Oats
- High Fiber Oat Bran
- 5 Grain Hot Cereal
- 10 Grain Hot Cereal
- Organic Kamut Hot Cereal
Just cook it up and top it with some fresh or dried fruit and protein like nuts and seeds!
Meal Prep for Breakfast
Breakfast can be one of the trickiest meals to prepare, especially if you want a hot breakfast. Mornings for most people and families are usually busy and lack extra time. That’s why preparing part of all of your breakfast ahead of time can be so helpful: It’s one less thing to worry about before work or school! One example of a breakfast food you can make ahead of time and then eat cold or warmed up in the morning is quiche. For a filling quiche that’s packed with greens, try our recipe for Cheesy Vegetable Quiche!
Another food that is easy to prepare ahead of time for breakfast is breakfast burritos. Simply make your favorite burritos with a combination of eggs, meat, vegetables, seasonings, and cheese— Make meal prep extra easy when you supplement with frozen, ready-to-heat protein like Gardein Chipotle Black Bean Burgers or Applegate Original Pork Breakfast Sausage! Roll them up in your preferred tortilla and store them in the freezer for later. Then, microwave in a damp paper towel for a few minutes and enjoy— Especially on the go!
On weekends or when time allows, it’s nice to be able to take time to make different breakfast recipes. From eggs benedict, to crispy potatoes and bacon, to dishes from other cuisines you’ve never tried, there’s so much to enjoy. Tacoma Boys recipe for Caramelized Onion Shakshuka is a great breakfast recipe to try on the weekends. The dish consists of runny eggs poached in a flavorful tomato sauce and embellished with richly caramelized onions— All you need is some crusty bread like a Boulart Baguette to dig in!
And while hot food is cozy and comforting for many in the morning, cold breakfast recipes can be just as delicious and nourishing. Cold breakfast tends to be easier to meal prep and even grab to take on the go: Overnight oats or chia seed pudding are easily meal-prepped and enjoyed cold. Or, simply grab a couple seasonal fruits along with yogurt and a seed-based granola. Smoothies are a great option to go along with any breakfast, too.
