My family and I love leisurely breakfasts. It’s great to cook something harder than oatmeal, set the table, make coffee and chat without looking at the clock (well, almost). I find breakfast recipes in books, on my favorite Instagram profiles, and I bring them from my travels. There is a bookmark, there is a bookmark – and now we have a decent collection. Now I will share two. To make shakshuka for the first time, of course, I was inspired by a trip to Israel, where it is so deliciously eaten in tiny cafes in the Tel Aviv market and trendy eateries with breakfasts 24/7. In fact, this dish is cooked very decently in our latitudes, and it is not a problem to repeat it at home. The main thing is to stock up on aromatic tomatoes.
And the second recipe is cheese cakes. But not simple ones, but with the most delicate curd cream, which makes them incredibly airy. I have not tried these in any institution (and I’m still a walker!). But since now all the best is in our own kitchens, we hone our skills and enjoy the pleasant routine.
For 2 servings:
2 tbsp olive oil
2 onions, peeled and cut into half rings
1 pepper, cut into strips
200 g of tomatoes in their own juice (you can take canned or fresh ones, but then you will need to peel them off)
200 g cherry tomatoes
2 cloves of garlic
2 tbsp water
1 tsp ground pepper
1 tsp coriander
chopped green onions and dill to taste
salt to taste
1 tsp honey
Heat olive oil in a skillet and sauté the onion, simmer for 5 minutes. Add peppers and tomatoes to your own juice. Simmer for another 10 minutes. If the tomatoes evaporate quickly, add water. Then put the cherry tomatoes, chopped in half, chopped garlic, pepper, coriander and honey in the same pan. Simmer for 10 minutes.
Make holes in the sauce and break the eggs into them. Leave the dish on low heat until the eggs are done, then add the herbs. Serve shakshuka with whole grain bread.
Cheesecakes with cottage cheese cream
For 3 servings:
300 g cottage cheese
30 g flour
100 g crême
40 g icing sugar
Combine cottage cheese and powdered sugar and grind with a fork. In a separate container, mix flour, cream cheese and yolk, add cottage cheese to them. Sculpt curd cakes on a floured surface. Fry in a dry skillet until golden brown on both sides. I like to sprinkle cheesecakes with powder before serving.

Once I heard someone call breakfast the sacred time of the family, so I completely agree with him. I have my own rituals and a set of exclusively “breakfast” dishes. For example, granola.
If you, like me, do not eat sugar (and store granola most often contains it or popular substitutes), switch to home production. This recipe is for you.
For 2 servings:
1 part oatmeal (not instant)
1 part nuts and seeds (I love the combination of almonds, cashews, and sunflower seeds)
1 part applesauce
2 egg whites
spices to taste: cinnamon, nutmeg
Mix everything, put on a baking sheet on parchment in an even layer, bake in the oven at 160 ℃ for about 30 minutes. Stir every 7-10 minutes to prevent the granola from sticking together. Allow to cool, transfer to a glass jar. Serve with yogurt, fresh fruit and a spoonful of peanut butter.

Breakfast is my favorite meal in terms of food choices. I can have an omelet for lunch, and cheese cakes for dinner, and toasts with avocado and curd cheese delight me at any time of the day.
For me, the ideal morning dish is scramble with salmon and avocado, and for my daughter and husband I like to cook banana pancakes.
Scramble with salmon and avocado
You will need:
2 tbsp olive oil
150 ml milk
20 g grated cheese
lightly salted salmon
half an avocado
The recipe is so simple that there is nothing to tell. Heat the olive oil in a skillet, mix and salt the eggs and milk. Pour the mixture into a hot skillet, sprinkle with cheese and stir until tender.
Cut the salmon into thin strips, spread the curd cheese on the avocado and serve nicely with the omelet.
You will need:
250 ml milk
2 tsp Sahara
2 tsp baking powder
180 gr flour
2 tbsp vegetable oil
a pinch of salt
Peel the banana and mash with a fork. Combine milk, butter, egg and sugar, beat with a mixer. Add banana puree, add flour, baking powder and stir again. Bake pancakes in a dry skillet for 2 minutes on each side.

I make these pancakes every Saturday for breakfast – a tradition. The recipe is simple, the dough is kneaded in 10 minutes. And I fry them in two pans at once in order to speed up the process, because usually the family members dance around with impatience.
Sugar-free oat pancakes with apples
You will need:
2 st. oatmeal (I have minimal processing “Monastyrskaya”)
2 tbsp. kefir (fermented baked milk, varenets – what can be found in the refrigerator)
1 ripe banana
1 large apple
Grind the oatmeal in a blender – but a little so that it still remains whole, not like flour. Sometimes I just soak the cereal without crushing it. So satiety lasts longer. Next, we send a banana with kefir to a blender – and pour the oatmeal with the resulting mixture. It should swell a little (enough time while you peel and cut the apple).
About the apple. We clean the skin and cut it into small squares. Stir into our dough. Our “batch” should not turn out too thick (and with oatmeal there is every chance for this). If you see that the dough is not dripping from the spoon, add more kefir.
Grease the pan with oil, bake pancakes over medium heat. Hot they are the tastiest!
The husband likes to add sour cream and honey to the pancakes, son – jam. I like them on their own.
