While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.

February is National Hot Breakfast Month!

Nutritionists will tell you that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Starting out on a full stomach helps keep you alert and focused well into the day.

If you’re not a morning person, taking the extra time cook, eat and clean up might not sound worth it. Oatmeal might be the perfect solution. It can be made quickly in a microwave and you can customize it to your taste. Add some fruit and nuts and you’ve got yourself a warm, filling, balanced meal.

You could also make pancake or waffle batter the night before so all you need to do in the morning is heat up the pan or iron. Pancakes are a blank canvas for flavor, so be creative! You can make different flavors of batter like pumpkin, or you can add fruit to the mixture like bananas or blueberries.

If time isn’t an issue, the full egg and bacon breakfast certainly is an option. Biscuits fresh from a cast-iron skillet with fluffy eggs and crispy bacon make getting to the weekend easier.

A hot breakfast on a cold day is the perfect motivation to get out of bed and get going. What’s your favorite hot breakfast?

    Baked oatmeal... Can be made when you have half an hour, customized to your tastes, and heats up in about a minute.

    A perfectly cooked cheese omelette with Cheddar or American ( I mean real, 100% American cheese, not that fake crud ), and a thick bagel and cream cheese on the side.....Heaven.

    Conversely, french toast and a side of over medium eggs would be great.

    Dang....loving eggs, only halfway through my night shift, and reading this article make for a tortuous combination.

    Hot breakfasts are the BEST! So cozy, especially when it's pouring or snowing outside! :D

    That would be someone's take on a Full English Breakfast, but I think they forgot the baked beans.

    My favorite breakfast is hot, heavily buttered, buttermilk biscuits and crispy bacon, washed down with a mug of hot chocolate.
