When it comes to breakfast, do you cook it or pour it from a box? According to Allrecipes.com’s most recent Measuring Cup report, breakfast is having a renaissance in the kitchen. Why is cooking breakfast back in vogue? The report shows that healthier eating goals, tightening food budgets, dietary parameters, an increased interest in home cooking, and the urban chicken boom (something has to be done with those daily eggs), are all contributing to the trend of cooking breakfast instead of pouring a bowl of cereal or skipping breakfast all together.

Scroll through the Allrecipes report. If you find yourself inspired to make breakfast (even if it’s breakfast for dinner), I’ve included some breakfast recipes from the MNN archives below to choose from.
