The Chew’s Best Breakfast
Nothing starts the day off better than a deliciously filling breakfast. Michael, Mario, Carla, Clinton and Daphne each have their own favorite early morning dishes. Find out what they are.
Daphne’s Banana Flax Pancakes
Ms. Oz like a sweet breakfast treat as much as the next person and this recipeis proof. However, she opted to include flax seed, which helps fight heart disease and diabetes, and whole wheat flour, which is known to increase your metabolism. So, even though you’re indulging you don’t need to feel too badly about it.
Bacon, Egg and Cheese Biscuit Casserole
Clinton likes this dish so much he suggests eating it any time of day. It has everything you like about the classic fast food sandwich but baked into a savory casserole. It’s not as heart healthy as Daphne’s dish but it’s sure to satisfy your taste buds.
French Toast, Batali Style
It’s hard to improve on a classic, particularly one as beloved as the bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich, but master chef Mario Batali found a way. He starts with a thick piece of French toast, tops it with a healthy slathering of tomato jam, adds a couple slides of maple bacon and finally drizzles maple syrup.
Michael’s Toad in a Hole
You might ask, what’s a toad in hole? This sandwich is a 50’s style concoction of white bread, bologna, salad dressing and a sunny side up egg. Yes, it sounds terrible, but in fact it’s delicious and it’s one of Michael’s secret guilty pleasures.
Nothing beats a fresh doughnut, especially for a special breakfast. Carla shared this simple version, that comes together in minutes, and it quickly became one of the most popular recipes on The Chew. These airy and sugary doughnuts are so good that it’s nearly impossible to eat just one.
