28 Hot Breakfasts to Make This February

As we settle into the frigid midst of winter, the kitchen table invites us to linger a little longer. February is Hot Breakfast Month and we’re challenging ourselves to make these 28 hot breakfast ideas to celebrate.

Gone are the days of snatching a granola bar from the pantry before rushing out the door. Our time spent at home has increased, and with it so has our craving for elaborate breakfast spreads. Bring on the tower of pumpkin pancakes, the maple glazed hashbrowns, and the maple syrup coated bacon. Whether you have 10 minutes before your first tele-meeting, or an entire morning to create in the kitchen, there’s a hot breakfast recipe to indulge in. And, spoiler alert: they’re not all pancakes!

Cozy into a short month of hot breakfasts that are so inspiring you’ll wish that February had just a few more days. The good news is, hot breakfast doesn’t have to conclude with the end of the month.

1. Maple Butter Toast

Ahh, a luscious layer of maple butter sinking into a warm piece of bread before 9am. It’s so simple, and yet tastes so luxurious. This hot breakfast is delivered to your plate as soon as your bread pops up from the toaster. Serve Maple Butter Toast with a side of fruit for that fresh factor, and be fueled for the rest of the day!

2. Organic Buttermilk Waffles

Hey, it’s not all about pancakes. Our organic pancake mix works just as well with your waffle iron. The waffle grid becomes a convenient pocket for fruit and holding puddles of pure, Vermont maple syrup. Find the recipe here.

3. Sweet Autumn Bread Pudding

Bread pudding is akin to French toast, only in a baking dish. Soaking your bread pieces with milk, butter, eggs, and our Sweet Autumn maple syrup gives this breakfast the natural and decadent taste of maple syrup from the inside out. The warm aroma of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and ginger all radiate from this breakfast table stunner. It doesn’t hurt that leftover (if there are any) can be scooped up for dessert.

4. Blueberry Maple Scones

We consider any baked good a hot breakfast idea. Enjoy these scones warm with a little slather of maple butter on the side for a casual morning at home.

5. Maple Candied Bacon

Stop what you’re doing and see if you have a pound of bacon in your fridge. If not, we highly recommend putting bacon on your grocery list. This recipe takes bacon to the next level. Coated in maple syrup, maple sugar and a kick of cayenne, this breakfast side is the embodiment of sweet and savory. You’ll have flavor bursting bacon in 30-35 minutes, but we guarantee it’ll all be gone in 5. Find the recipe here.
