Healthy Bread Recipes for Breakfast

When we hear the term 'breakfast' the first thoughts popping into many heads are eggs and toast. As a working parent, I am always in a rush in the morning. Most commonly I served bread and jam, or bread and butter, or toasted bread with eggs to kids. The following are recipes you can prepare in less than 2 minutes.

One day my 10-year-old girl shouted to me saying, "Mom, I am fed up with these pieces of bread you give us daily..." Yeah, I felt bad, but she was not wrong.

I consulted with friends, read magazines, and found some recipes we all enjoy.
