5 Allergy-free Breakfasts

Breakfast can be a challenging endeavor when you have multiple food allergies.  Most traditional breakfasts include either eggs, toast, or cereal - things my daughter cannot have with her allergies to dairy, eggs, nuts, and wheat.  So, I've had to mix things up in the morning.  Here are 5 allergy-free breakfasts I have served.

Sausage is a staple at our house, in order to have a breakfast protein.  I try to opt for a nitrate-free version.

Breakfast idea #1: Sausage/hash-brown scramble, and fresh fruit:

Breakfast idea #2: Allergy-free pumpkin bread toast, bacon, and grapes:

Breakfast idea #3:  Sausage patty, hash-browns, and fresh berries (ok, this one is not too different from #1, but at least the presentation is different, and sometimes that's all that matters):

Breakfast idea #4: Sausage/fresh spinach burrito on a gluten-free tortilla (my favorite happens to be the new Rudy's gluten-free tortillas, which come in 3 different flavors):

Breakfast idea #5: Sausage and 'cheese' quesadilla (again using a Rudy's gluten-free tortilla) with fresh fruit.  

The 'cheese' is actually a wonderful vegan cheese product called 'Daiya.' Along with being allergy-free (dairy, lactose, casein, gluten, and soy-free!), it melts and tastes like real cheese!

I simply place a tortilla in a greased, hot pan and top with cooked sausage and 'cheese.'  I top it with another tortilla and flip it over once the first side is browned a bit.  

Once the other side is browned, I remove it from the pan and cut into quarters.

Other simple allergy-free breakfast options might include a gluten-free cereal with dairy-free milk, gluten-free oatmeal, or vegan yogurt with granola.  So, as you can see, with a little creativity, there are plenty of breakfast options for the food-allergic person!  What is your favorite allergy-free breakfast?
