Between countless hours spent holiday shopping, gift-wrapping, at after-school holiday concerts and fulfilling other seasonal time commitments, it can feel like there just aren't enough hours in the day and that there's simply no time for a sit-down family dinner. On hectic weeknights, during the holiday season or not, look to easy, go-to recipes to rescue your mealtime. Breakfast staples are some of the quickest meals to make in a flash, and you can be sure that the novelty of enjoying early morning favorites at dinnertime will win over even your pickiest eaters.

A 15-minute recipe made with only six ingredients, Food Network Magazine's Hash-Brown Eggs (pictured above) is an all-in-one-dish with Mexican-inspired flavor. To prepare, sauté grated potatoes and onions with butter until they're crispy and deliciously golden brown, then top with Cheddar cheese and two eggs and bake just until the eggs have set. Finish the platter with a dollop of salsa to complete this go-to meal in a flash.

Round out the meal with a filling Peach Pie Smoothie (pictured right), a 10-minute favorite from Ellie Krieger. The secret to this seemingly indulgent recipe is that it's made with pie spices, not actual pie, so it's in fact healthy enough to enjoy for breakfast or dessert. Ellie combines non-fat milk and yogurt with frozen peaches, a squeeze of honey and warm fragrant spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger then blends the mixture for just a few seconds until smooth. Pour these thick, creamy treats into to-go cups and enjoy them on the run.

Meatless Monday, an international movement, encourages people everywhere to cut meat one day a week for personal and planetary health. Browse more Meatless Monday recipes.
