Invite your friends and family over for a delicious and elaborate breakfast or brunch. With your blender, you can make a multi-course breakfast that everyone is guaranteed to love. Serve fresh cut fruit, bacon and some of these tasty breakfast options with the help of your professional blender

Crepes are simple French pastries that can be enjoyed as breakfast, dessert or even dinner. The key to a crepe is what you put inside. Typically, breakfast crepes have fresh fruits like berries and something sweet. Dinner crepes are usually more savory, but you can try these at breakfast as well. Make your own take on this French classic in your kitchen. 

Start off by adding these ingredients to your performance blender and blending them on HIGH:

  • 1 1/2 cups milk 
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla 
  • 1 cup flour 
  • 2 tablespoons sugar 
  • 1 pinch salt. 

Refrigerate your mix in a bowl for at least 1 hour. After it's ready, set up your electric griddle with a nonstick surface and pour out some of your batter. You may need to tilt the griddle to evenly distribute your crepe batter. Then, cook similarly to a pancake, but keep in mind that a crepe is much thinner. You may only need about 20 seconds on each side. Cook until dry, remove from heat, add your fruit and serve warm.

Like crepes, waffles are a great breakfast food because not only do they taste great, but they take on complementary flavors well too. Make your own waffles for a rich breakfast or tasty brunch. 

The first step of waffle making is turning on your waffle iron to heat up. Then combine these ingredients in your professional blender on HIGH: 

  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup flour.

Pour your batter from your blender jar to a bowl. Add in 1 stiffly beaten egg white to your mix by hand. Pour about 1/2 cup of the mixture into your waffle iron at a time. Top with your favorite ingredients and serve!

Basic Banana Pancake 
If you like eating breakfast foods, but don't enjoy doing the work for crepes or waffles, this two-ingredient recipe can work for you.

All you need to do is toss a banana and 2 eggs into your blender. Blend on MEDIUM until you have a thick batter. Use this mix like you would any pancake batter. Pour it on your griddle and flip when ready.

Get creative with the flavors you add to the batter or after the pancakes are done. It may not have all of the flavors of a normal pancake, but these two-ingredient breakfast treats are sweet and tasty without any added sugar, flour or butter. It might be a smart option for people intolerant of gluten as well.
