Long Weekend Breakfast Ideas

Breakfasts are the King of Long Weekend meals. So to give them the attention that they deserve, we wanted to show you guys three different breakfasts that are “Long Weekend” worthy!

Three “Long Weekend Worthy” Breakfasts!

Long weekend breakfasts are somewhat sacred; there’s often ample time to sleep in, relax, and prepare a big, extravagant spread to share with your family and friends. To be honest, it’s actually one of my favourite parts of the long weekend!!

There are definitely some tried and true Long Weekend classics (eggs & bacon anyone?), but today we’re giving three of them a bit of a healthy twist!

Breakfast 1: Eggs & Turkey Bacon With a Side of Fruit
