Breakfast Side Dish Twists


Jul 6, 2015

Find inspiration you need to spice up typical morning menu side dishes and more:

  • Better bacon: Instead of regular bacon or turkey bacon, offer a honey-pepper flavor option. Simply brush cooked bacon with honey, sprinkle on freshly cracked black pepper and microwave for 20–30 seconds.
  • Perfect pancakes: Potato pancakes are a uniquely savory morning side option. They’ll have diners passing up the typical buttermilk, banana or blueberry offerings. Find a recipe here.
  • Add apples: Fresh fruit cups are a light, healthy option for breakfast. But if you’re seeking something sweet yet hearty, sautéed apples are the way to go. Be sure to sprinkle on some cinnamon to enhance the natural sweetness of the fruit.
  • A new take on potatoes: Upgrade your morning menu with an atypical potato offering. Try these Lyonnaise Potatoes. They’re baked and flavored with sautéed onion, parsley and butter, and they pair perfectly with a variety of breakfast entrées.
