Breakfast Salad

The unconventional morning meal ~ Breakfast Salad with Cinnamon Toast Croutons and Maple Vinaigrette. Who knew a salad for breakfast could be so good?

Breakfast Salad

I’ve noticed a trend here in Asheville and on the menus of other popular breakfast joints around the country ~ salad for breakfast. Before you turn up your nose, let me clarify. These breakfast salads are not bland leafy side-salads with bottled ranch dressing, but bold hearty meals. A good breakfast salad encompasses everything that makes breakfast so appealing: carbs, eggs, pork-fat and sweet accents.

After exploring these salads at several favorite breakfast joints, I decided to work on my own version.

Salad for Breakfast

MY OTHER RECIPES


First, I wanted to put my family’s favorite morning flavors into the salad. That way, it would be hard for the kids to resist. My version had to include: bacon, maple syrup, cinnamon toast and eggs.

The Cinnamon Toast Croutons were the first inspiration. Truly, I could eat a whole pan of these babies. In fact, it’s important not to make them too far in advance, or there will not be any left for the salad. Maple Vinaigrette provides a sweet and poppy essence with apple cider vinegar and Dijon mustard. The addition of candied nuts and dried cherries offers a granola-like quality.

Cinnamon Toast Croutons

Prepare your morning eggs just the way you like them, and pile it all on a bed of crisp baby spinach. THIS, my friends, is a great way to start the day!

    I love to saute fresh vegetables with tofu, but I am definitely going to try your breakfast salad. What an interesting (and yummy) idea!

    what a fun idea to make a breakfast salad, the cinnamon toast croutons is an excellent touch!

  3. Valerieposted July 25, 2011 at 6:34 am Reply

    Hmmm… only one thing? I guess eggs. I love a fried egg with a runny yolk!

  4. Cécyposted July 25, 2011 at 6:40 am Reply

    I love the idea of a breakfast salad.
    When I have a little extra time I love to get greens from our garden (arugula or swiss chard right now) to stick on some bread with goat cheese and an egg. So the salad idea definitely talks to me.
    I’ve seen a lot of salads with watermelon too, it would be perfect for breakfast too…

    I think my favorite thing to do in the pan is a stir-fry. So many variations available.

    Wah…I want those cute looking pans..they are not for me. My eyes could not move beyond those lovely Cinnamon Toast Croutons! What a wonderful idea it is, Sommer. Simply awesome..a treasure to keep.

  25. You had me from the moment I saw the egg! Breakfast is far and above my favorite meal of the day, but I’ve never even considered having a salad for it! I think that Adelle Davis quote is spot on. Our family would probably do without the cinnamon croutons (or maybe just those by themselves), but the rest will be on the menu some morning.

    The favorite thing to cook in a skillet? Eggs, of course!

    Wow what a fantastic breakfast that is! I too could eat that whole pan of croutons. Dangerous. I love those pans and would love to win one!

    That’s such a cool idea. I use a lot of maple vinaigrette on apple and celery root-based salads, so i can already taste 90% of it. I’m thinking instead of pork or bacon, there are a lot of cool things you could do with smoke salmon as well — somehow get a cream cheese glaze to the french toast, then the rest of the assemble. dressing … will have to think about that one.

    Cheers!

    I love making my toddler scrambled eggs in the morning. Nothing really special just lots of love in them.

    BACON! (sorry, i got a little excited, but really, bacon is my number one frying pan love).

    I really had to comment to say that these photos are stunning. The eggs look amazing and the entire dish looks mouthwatering. Beautiful post.

    You had me with that fried egg. Really – put it on anything … a runny yolk rocks my world. As for my favorite thing to cook in a fry pan – well … one guess. Yep! Eggs! : )
