Start Your Breakfast the Night Before for Tastier Mornings

How to eat a weekend-worthy breakfast on a Wednesday

Often rushed and sometimes even skipped, breakfast is a meal that we tend to keep pretty simple during the week—easy foods like toast, yogurt, or fruit. But with a little extra planning, you could be starting your morning with yeasted waffles, breakfast pho, or strawberry-rhubarb hand pies. Begin cooking these breakfasts the night before; then all you need the next morning is a few fast finishing touches. You deserve fresh-out-the-oven sticky buns on a Wednesday morning.
