Surely you know how important it is to start your day with breakfast? Let’s face it — your mother probably told you that years ago and no matter how old you get, it sticks! Whether it’s fueling a busy day during your work week or recharging you on a lazy weekday morning, a good breakfast is the first step in getting your day off on the right foot.

While most people have a favorite go-to breakfasts, favoritism can quickly add up to a rut of eating the same thing over and over again. That’s why this month we’ve teamed up with Lodge Cast Iron to share some of our favorite, swoon-worthy breakfast ideas.

If you’re thinking cast iron skillets will only do for dinner, it’s time to rethink what’s on your morning plate! There are tons of possibilities (but don’t worry, we’ve narrowed down a few of our favorites below.) And to keep your cast iron in tip-top shape, we’re sharing these FAQs from our friends at Lodge.

Now, let’s get started cooking!

EggsWhile it’s easy to just whip up the same scrambled eggs day after day, eggs are actually quite versatile. Try them in this Shakshooka recipe or in this Southwestern Corn Fritatta for a Mexican twist!
