“Breakfast is the most important meal of the day”… I’m quite a big believer in having a decent breakfast and when it comes to TikTok there are lots of quirky recipes on there to get some inspiration! We’ve tested a few already, including pesto eggs, which was surprisingly good! In this video we try making overnight weetabix – imagine a healthy cheesecake you can have for breakfast, quiche bagels and baked yoghurt toast. All very quirky in their own way but it was a nice way to spend the day on my own.

I have made a couple of tweaks to the recipes based on my reaction in the video which I think will improve them, they were all great in their own way!

3 Viral TikTok Breakfast Recipes

Overnight Weetabix

You can make this in 2 hours like me if you wish, just leave it as long as you can in the fridge, overnight is ideal though. I’ve added mashed banana in my opinion this will work great instead of the slices.

Crush the Weetabix into a Tupperware tub, add the coffee granules and 3tbsp maple syrup, mix well to combine, try to make sure all the coffee gets a little maple syrup on there to help soften it. Press down to level off, it’ll feel a bit like a flapjack, make sure it’s level so use as spoon or something to help here. Add the mashed banana on top, the TikTok says to use slices, but if making again I’d want more coverage to get that banana hit, spread the banana all over the top carefully until fully covered.

In a mixing bowl mix the soft cheese, yoghurt, peanut butter and the final tbsp maple syrup together until consistent in colour, spread this over the mashed banana. Put the lid on your tub and place in the fridge, ideally overnight, but after a couple of hours that is ok.

Warm the tbsp of peanut butter in the microwave and drizzle it on top to serve. This tastes like a cheesecake but when you look at the ingredients, it’s pretty healthy! I’ve added the mashed banana and a little more maple syrup to this recipe based on my feedback but play around with it with different fruits, yoghurts, etc. Enjoy!

Quiche Bagels

The TikTok tells you to score the inside of the bagel out but I found it just as good to press the inside of the bagel halves into the bagel to compress the bread and create a sort of moat around the bagel, this is what will hold in the egg mixture, compressing it squishes it well and also helps it hold the egg better.

In a bowl whisk together the eggs and cream, just until combined. Pour this mix into each of the 4 bagel halves that have been compressed down, slowly filling it up to the top. Now sprinkle the cheese, bacon and chives into each of the hollowed bagels. The TikTok said to make it all in a bowl and pour in but as the video shows I found all the bacon / cheese etc stays in the bowl so this way you can evenly garnish them.

Bake in a pre-heated oven at 350f/160fan/180c on a baking tray for 10-12 minutes until the eggs have cooked through, they will be puffed up for a bit but as they cool the egg may sink, either way they are delicious!

For a bonus awesome bagel, take 2 halves place some extra grated cheese between the two halves and microwave until the cheese melts to fuse the halves together, let it cool slightly, but eat warm, super, super good! This recipe in general was a real winner and could be adapted so many ways!

Yoghurt Toast

This is really simple and one of the recipes I made no tweaks to. Out of the 3 it was the one I least liked but it did work well, I’m just not a huge yoghurt fan.

Grab a bowl and whisk together the egg, yoghurt, cinnamon, honey and lemon zest. It should still be thick in texture.

Again like the bagels, press down the bread against the crusts, leaving a border and somewhere for the yoghurt to sit into. Pour in carefully just up to the sides, then place a few strawberry slices onto the yoghurt in the bread.

Bake on a lined tray at 400f/200c/180fan for approximately 15 minutes or until set. The crusts will char and toast and the yoghurt will set like a custard! Drizzle some honey on top to serve and maybe some more lemon zest! Pretty fun, quick and easy!
