The hardest part is getting yourself out of bed and into the kitchen. But in the case of this delicious recipe, you’ll have at least another 15 minutes to lie down until the dough is done.


  • 500 gm cottage cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 2-3 tbsp. to. booby traps
  • 3-4 tablespoons. to. the desert
  • Vanillin as desired
  • flour for dusting
  • Butter and vegetable oil for frying

It is better to eat cottage cheese fatter. The higher the fat content, the tastier the cheesecake. Knead the cottage cheese with a fork with sugar, a pinch of salt and eggs. Add semolina and mix until smooth.

Now you can lie down for 15 minutes – and let the semolina work.

Upon return, pour the flour into a deep dish. We take the curd mass with a tablespoon or dessert spoon, sprinkle our hands with flour and form cheesecakes.

Fry them in a frying pan with butter and vegetable oil or send to the oven on parchment paper at a temperature of 150-180 degrees for 15-20 minutes.

You can also divide the curd dough into 2-3 parts and add raisins to one part, dried apricots to the second, chocolate pieces and dried cherries to the third. This is the kind of breakfast your kids will never forget.

Serve the cheesecake with sour cream, jam or chocolate sauce.

2. Waffles

You can’t do without an electric waffle iron. But once you cook Belgian waffles at home, you’ll fall in love with them and never regret using another kitchen gadget. True, there is a risk that you will not order homemade pancakes only on weekends …


  • 170 ml milk
  • 170 g flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 60 ml vegetable oil
  • 25 grams of sugar
  • 1 st. to. vanilla sugar
  • a pinch of salt

Mix the yolks with sugar, salt and vanilla sugar. We introduce the milk and sifted flour well. Add the melted butter and mix well. Beat the egg whites to soft peaks and gradually stir into the mixture. Mix again. We bake in an electric waffle iron (you can also use an electric grill, only then the waffles will not be from squares, but from stripes) for 3-4 minutes each.

Served with custard, ice cream, berries, fruits or fried bacon.

3. Fruit salad

Light, bright and incredibly attractive. Most importantly, it cooks at lightning speed. There is no weight on the pillow. Really fast and delicious breakfast.


  • An apple
  • pear
  • kiwi
  • tangerines
  • banana
  • In general, any fruit can be found at home

To refuel:

Fruit salad is the perfect companion to Belgian waffles or oatmeal pancakes. Wash, peel and chop the fruit as desired. You can put all the fruits in a large salad bowl, or you can arrange them in transparent bowls or cups – beautiful and unusual. Children will be happy to help with this (at the same time, you can repeat the colors and names of fruits and berries with the children).

We mix honey with yogurt and invite everyone to season the salad themselves.

And if you decorate the salad with whipped cream and sprinkle it with chocolate on top, you will get not only a weekend brunch, but a wonderful dessert.

4. Oatmeal pancakes

When simple pancakes, zucchini pancakes, and pancakes are emphatically tired, it’s time to try something new. And yes, fear not: Oatmeal pancakes cook very quickly.


  • Half a cup of instant oats
  • 3 tbsp. to. the desert
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • an egg
  • 1 and 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 and 1/2 cup flour
  • juice of half a lemon
  • ½ teaspoon soft drink
  • 1 st. to. olive oil
  • vegetable oil for frying

Mix the oats with salt and sugar first. Carefully insert the eggs, mix and add milk. Now you need to squeeze the lemon juice and leave the dough to melt for 15-20 minutes. Sift the flour with soda (soda does not need to be extinguished). It is added to the sour mass. Gently knead with a fork, add 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil. The texture should be like thick sour cream.

Bake in a hot skillet. First, they are fried for 1-2 minutes, then turned over and covered with a lid.

Serve with sour cream, jam, preserves, and whatever the kids love. Adults can serve pancakes with red fish or baked meat.

5. Fried eggs in bread

This simple and quick recipe for a delicious and satisfying breakfast will be especially appreciated by the male part of the family, because you can cook such scrambled eggs in 5 minutes.


  • Toast slices or any other bread
  • Eggs (depending on the number of family members)
  • Tomatoes
  • vegetables
  • cheese
  • Bacon or optional
  • Salt, pepper, spices to taste
  • Butter or vegetable oil for frying

You can, of course, cut a hole in a slice of bread with a cup, send the bread to dry in a frying pan, then gently break one egg inside with salt and pepper and get a delicious and hearty breakfast. But this is an option for a quick breakfast on a weekday. And on the weekends, you can conjure.

Finely chop the bacon and tomatoes, grate the cheese on a fine grater.

Slices of bread, from which you have already rolled out the crumbs in the middle (using a knife or a glass of the required diameter), dry in a frying pan. Melt a piece of butter inside a slice of bread and send the filling first, then break the egg (be careful, it should still be whole and beautiful). Sprinkle with cheese and close the pan with a lid. Cut crumbs can be dried next to it.

For those who do not eat bread primarily, you can replace it with circles of sweet pepper – healthy scrambled eggs will turn out beautifully and incredibly tasty.
