1. Make oatmeal in a rice cooker.

Instead of buying instant oatmeal packets, try this! Add 2 cups of old fashioned oats and 3 cups of milk or water in a rice cooker and let her cook! If you’d like, add toppings like diced apple, cinnamon, and brown sugar.


2. Get rid of unwanted cereal crumbs with a strainer.


3. Or, use the crumbs to coat your French toast for a sweet crust.


4. Make waffle iron breakfast sandwiches.

To make these super-easy and fast breakfast sandwiches, use refrigerated biscuit dough (like Pillsbury Grands!), soft scrambled eggs, cheese, and ham.

  1. Open biscuits and separate each in half. Stretch layers to about 5 – 6 inches in diameter.
  2. On one half, pile on the toppings. Place the other half over the toppings and pinch to seal the edges closed.
  3. Transfer the compiled sandwich onto your waffle iron and close.
  4. Cook 4 – 5 minutes or until the biscuit is cooked through.


5. Bake eggs in your avocados.

Get a healthy dose of protein and omega-3 when you make this breakfast. Just slice an avocado in half and remove the pit. Dig out about 2 teaspoons of meat and crack an egg into the hole. Bake for 15-20 minutes in a 425-degree oven.



6. And get perfectly round eggs by cooking them in onion rings.


7. Use a muffin tin to make granola cups for your yogurt.

The next time you’re craving French toast, add a twist to your go-to recipe by making it in a waffle maker!

  1. Give slices of bread a quick dip in your favorite French toast egg mixture, making sure you don’t over-soak the bread.
  2. Transfer dipped slices onto a heated waffle iron and close.
  3. Cook until bread is golden brown, about 3 – 5 minutes.
  4. Moved cooked, waffled French toast to a cutting board and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.
  5. Cut into sticks and serve with warm syrup.


12. Make pancakes more fun with cookie cutters.

Spray your griddle and cookie cutters (especially the insides) with nonstick cooking spray and pour batter into the molds that have been set on a pre-heated griddle. When the batter is full of bubbles and the edges look cooked, remove the cookie cutter and flip your cakes. Heat until pancakes are brown and cooked through.


13. Get salty and sweet in every bite with these bacon pancakes.

Cook bacon first then add strips to pancake batter on the griddle.

15. Make donuts out of canned biscuit dough.

All you need for this recipe is about 2 quarts of oil for frying, a can of refrigerated biscuit dough, and about a cup of sugar. Just separate individual biscuits, and create a hole in each. Fry until golden brown on both sides, and roll in sugar.



16. Perfectly poach an egg with a mug, plastic wrap, and olive oil.

Perfectly poach an egg with a mug, plastic wrap, and olive oil.

First, brush a piece of plastic wrap with olive oil, and drape it over a mug. Then gently push the center of the wrap slightly into the mug, making sure you leave enough wrap over the edges so it can be tied. Crack an egg into the plastic and form a pouch with the wrap, tying off the end. This is what it should look like:

Drop the pouch into simmering water, and cook the egg for 3 – 4 minutes. Cut off the knot and slide the poached egg onto a slice of toast. Enjoy!
