I’m the first to admit I have a hard time when it comes to making breakfast. I often make the same oatmeal or avocado toast until I get sick of it, then struggle to come up with a new dish to add to my repertoire. Worse, I sometimes (routinely) skip breakfast altogether and just snack until lunch, which is definitely not ideal. That’s why I’m determined to expand my recipes and consistently eat breakfast this year — and I’m using the Food Network Kitchen app to do it.

If you haven’t explored the Food Network Kitchen app yet, now is the time to try. From live classes with all-star chefs to a massive catalogue of brand-new recipes, the app has everything you need to make cooking a breeze, and the most important meal of the day is no exception. These six strategies will help you create a breakfast plan and stick to it — and they’re all made better by the Food Network Kitchen app!

Get Back to Basics

If you’re new to the breakfast game, start off simple with classes like Alex Guarnaschelli’s How-to Egg Techniques. She’ll teach you how to scramble, poach and fry with ease — and have fun doing it!

Meal Prep Like a Champ

If you regularly skip breakfast because you just don’t have the time, try cooking in big batches on the weekends and eating the leftovers throughout the week. Recipes like Vivan Chan’s Keto Egg Cups (pictured above) are ideal for meal prepping, because the recipe makes multiple pre-portioned servings that reheat beautifully. Plus, the egg cups are both easy and tasty! Win-win-win.

Drink Your Fruits and Veggies

Yes, I’m talking about smoothies. In addition to more than 250 standout recipes, the Food Network Kitchen app also offers several smoothie classes, all of which can be completed in 20 minutes or less. Bonus? Smoothies are a nice change of pace from carb-heavy cereals and breads, which aren’t always the most wholesome choice.

Update Your Favorites

Avoid falling into a breakfast rut by turning standard foods into fresh, new recipes. Cook along with Katie Lee as she transforms frozen waffles into breakfast nachos or elevate your run-of-the-mill eggs with Molly Yeh’s class for shakshuka pizza (pictured above).

Make Your Own Takeout

With the Food Network Kitchen app, you can cook along with live chefs as they prepare bagels, grain bowls and store-bought style muffins — no tip required.

Treat Yourself

Who says breakfast can’t be fun? Shake up your usual routine by incorporating decadent treats, like a giant cinnamon roll or French toast roll-ups. Any routine is easier to stick to when you know you’ll be rewarded — and really, what reward beats a luxurious meal?
