Breakfast Bread

There are two camps in the breakfast bread world. On one side, you have options that serve as vehicles for toppings, like bagels, English muffins, toast and croissants. These unadorned choices can be piled high with everything from lox to peanut butter. The other half seeks to satisfy eaters with a constant sweet tooth. Choices like banana bread, cinnamon rolls, muffins and sticky buns ensure that sugar is available first thing in the morning. F&W's guide has all your breakfast options covered, no matter what your tastes are.

Strudel Recipes

Strudel is a classic Austrian pastry that consists of flaky, paper-thin sheets of dough wrapped around a variety of fillings. Most strudel flavors you’ll see will likely have sweet cheese, fruit or a combination of both. Some of our favorite fruits to add to strudels are bananas, cherries and apples. But strudel can also showcase savory fillings as well. We like to fill the pastry with a mixture of mushrooms and then serve the crispy cooked strudel as an appetizer for a dinner party. Here, 5 of our best sweet and savory strudel recipes.
