It's often described as the most important meal of the day. A good breakfast can leave you feeling energised, full and ready to take on the challenges of the day.

However, did you know that, for one reason or another, it's estimated that up to a half of Britons regularly skip breakfast?

Doing this on a regular basis can leave you feeling tired and more likely to snack during the day, but fear not because we've put together five delicious breakfast ideas for when you're pressed for time.

A frittata in a mug

Cooking a satisfying breakfast does not have to be time-consuming. With this vegetable-packed frittata recipe, you don't even have to use an oven.

Simply whisk up some eggs, add some seasoning, cheese and some chopped vegetables before pouring into a cup and microwaving for two minutes. Quick, nutritious and so delicious, so why not give this a try tomorrow morning


When you don't have time to sit down and enjoy a breakfast, smoothies are great because they can be consumed on the go.

You can customise these smoothies with your favourite fruits and vegetables to provide you with a menu option that is packed full of vitamins, protein and fibre.

All you have to do is grab half a cup of ice, some coconut milk, throw in your fruits and vegetables and blend until the drink is smooth.

This breakfast idea could not be easier to make, so give these recipes a go when you're pushed for time.

A fruit salad

A tried and trusted breakfast dish for generations, and it can even be prepared in advance. Simply chop up some of your favourite fruits into a bowl. That's it. Job done. You could even add some yoghurt or compote to give your dish a rich, creamy taste.

Avocado on toast

Even if you're in a hurry, there's no excuse not to enjoy breakfast. In fact, this one is ready in three steps.

Use a fork to mash the avocado and then spread onto a couple of slices of wholemeal toast. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, and you can even add some lemon juice to give it a kick.

Avocado is renowned for its ability to reduce cholesterol levels, while the toast is packed with fibre. As well as tasting great, this dish has some serious health benefits.

French toast

Five minutes to prepare, five minutes to cook. Just whisk up a couple of eggs, add a splash of milk and a dash of seasoning before dipping a couple of slices of bread into the mixture and frying in a pan.

Cook until both sides of the bread are golden brown, and then sit back, relax and enjoy a satisfying breakfast before rushing out of the door.

If this sounds like a meal that's right up your street, then why not take a look at the recipe and start your day off with a dish that's loved all over the globe.
