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?
