15 Sweet And Savory Breakfast Recipes To Make In Your Toaster Oven

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so why are we settling for a package of oatmeal or a plain-ass Greek yogurt in the morning?

While those two options are the easiest on-the-go breakfast choices, they get really boring really quickly.

Wake up a little earlier than usual, and treat yourself to one of these killer toaster oven breakfasts:

Pulling apart your food is always awesome.

Go HAM on this warm, cheesy, bacon-filled sucker, and be prepared to slap some hands away from this dish.

Better yet, eat it alone. You can make yours like this.

If you're one of those people who likes a flavor punch to start to your morning, then this recipe is for you.

The sharp taste of the citrus combines with the sweet taste of the brown sugar to give you a well-balanced breakfast.

Nothing is more tragic than opening a package of Pop-Tarts and only being able to eat one of them.

Then, you have a difficult decision to make.

You can either let it go stale, or you can eat it anyway and give yourself a sugar high that will probably last three days.

But, you'll never have to deal with that dilemma again once you make your own Pop-Tarts like this.

4. Toasted Coconut And White Chocolate Chip Cookies

Technically, a coconut can be considered a fruit and a nut, so you get a two-for-one deal with this recipe.

Some people might say the nutritional value of coconut significantly decreases when you make it into a cookie, but those people just don't know how to live.
