This Is What Your Favorite Food Personalities Actually Eat For Breakfast

If you're looking for a little breakfast inspiration, you've come to the right place. Your favorite chefs and cooking experts, like Giada De Laurentiis and Gordon Ramsay, have shared their favorite breakfast recipes that are guaranteed to turn you into a morning person. From the best way to scramble eggs to the crispiest breakfast potatoes, here's how all the pros really do breakfast.


Giada De Laurentiis: Oatmeal With Olive Oil

Giada puts olive oil on everything, including oatmeal in the morning. It's "the simplest thing on the planet, but one of my favorite things to have for breakfast," Giada said in an interview about Feel Good Food.


Alton Brown: Doughnuts

Alton Brown takes doughnuts so seriously that he has a list of his favorite doughnut shops in the US. If Alton is eating on the road, there's a good chance he's seeking out the best doughnuts in town for breakfast.


Chrissy Teigen: "Cheesy" Cheeseless Scrambled Eggs and Garlicky Bacon

Chrissy Teigen's favorite way to scramble eggs involves a secret ingredient that makes the eggs cheesy without cheese: heavy cream. She swears by the low and slow method of scrambling eggs, and she pairs the soft eggs with garlic-roasted bacon, both of which you'll find in her Breakfast All Day section of her cookbook, Cravings.


Sunny Anderson: Waffle Iron Hash Browns and Smoky Bacon

Sunny Anderson manages to have bacon, hash browns, and eggs ready at the exact same time. What's her secret? She roasts the bacon at 350°F with a pinch of sugar and harissa, puts frozen hash browns in a cold waffle iron with olive oil before turning it on, and puts a skillet on the lowest setting with a pat of butter before adding cold eggs. She walks away and in 20 minutes, everything is perfectly cooked.


Ina Garten: Coffee and a Buttered Baguette With Jam

Always keeping things classy and simple, Ina Garten opts for a minimalist but satisfying breakfast. She frequently vacations in Paris, and her favorite meal there is a "café cremé" (espresso with cream) and a tartine, or an open-faced baguette, which she slathers with butter and blood orange marmalade.


Guy Fieri: Grits With Red-Eye Gravy

What you won't find Guy Fieri eating for breakfast is eggs — that's the one thing he seriously hates. His favorite breakfast is ham and stone-ground grits with red-eye gravy, which is hearty enough to fill you up until lunch and caffeinate you (red-eye gravy is made with brewed coffee!).


Ree Drummond: Over-Easy Eggs With Breakfast Potatoes

One of The Pioneer Woman's favorite breakfasts is easy yet crowd pleasing: over-easy eggs with breakfast potatoes and sausage patties. Her breakfast potatoes recipe calls for garlic, onion, and bell peppers to make the red potatoes even more flavorful as they crisp up in the oven.


Gordon Ramsay: A Full English Breakfast, Including Soft Scrambled Eggs

English breakfasts typically include bacon and tomatoes, and Gordon Ramsay's isn't complete without his famous scrambled eggs. Gordon's scrambled eggs recipe is unlike any you've seen before, and it might become your new favorite.


Mario Batali: Eggs With Asparagus and Truffles

No joke: Mario Batali puts truffles on everything, including eggs. His breakfast of choice is asparagus milanese speck (a salty ham similar to prosciutto), fried eggs, and a generous shaving of black truffles. If you're in the mood to treat yourself in the a.m., do breakfast like Mario.


Tyler Florence: Upgraded Avocado Toast

Tyler Florence's recipes tend to be elevated yet approachable, as evidenced by one of his go-to breakfasts: avocado toast topped with scrambled eggs, olive oil, chopped chilis, and marjoram, an herb similar to mint. "Breakfast of champions," indeed.
