Cheese Breakfast Recipes 

You cannot go wrong when serving cheese breakfast recipes, either for special breakfasts or for brunches. I know that most of us want to grab something quick for breakfast on a normal day and out the door we go. However, on the weekend, a holiday or for a special brunch try serving something with cheese added like a cheese coffee cake recipe, cheese blintz recipe or learn how to cook grits with cheese to make Southern grits.

Breakfast, our first meal of the day, is a means for breaking the fast from overnight sleeping. For years a lot of research has been given to this one meal of the day. Many believe that it is the most important meal of the day. It regulates your body, helps prevents you from overeating throughout the day and gives your body the energy to get you through the day. Much research has shown (even my brother’s) that a little protein should be added any time you eat carbohydrates. If you are one that only likes a small breakfast like a muffin or biscuit, cheese added to these will provide a little protein.


This special cheese coffee cake is a wonderful cheese breakfast recipe with fresh blueberries will be a hit no matter when you serve it. It is delicious!
