Potato chips are usually thought of as a lunchtime companion -- a crunchy side to your sandwich or wrap -- but their time has come to shine as a breakfast star. Think of them as a low-effort breakfast potato, which is the best kind of breakfast potato, especially on those morning where frying something seems impossible.

In my mind, egg whites exist only as a delivery system for egg yolks. Though they are a great source of protein, whites have almost no flavour, which is why I’ve never understood those people who add more of them to their scramble. (I don’t understand athletes, is what I’m saying.) Yolks should be the star of any egg dish, even scrambles.
For the most custardy, creamy, flavourful scramble — that comes together in mere minutes — you need to increase your yolk content.
If you're reading this in a bleary-eyed haze wondering where the morning went, there's a pretty good chance you need to rethink your waking up ritual. The way you spend the first 60 minutes of each morning can have a profound affect on the rest of the day -- especially on Mondays when any sane person would rather be in bed. Here are seven morning routines that will help you to start the day on the right foot.
Hello and welcome back to Will It Casserole?, the column where I take your delicious concepts and re-imagine them as tasty casserole creations. This week we're taking a very British thing — the "fry up" or "full English" — and putting a spin on it by turning it into a casserole.
Mother's Day will be here very soon, and with it the expectation of some sort of brunch-y meal, lovingly prepared for the maternal figure(s) in your life. If you are the sort of offspring/partner who possesses a giant heart but no real kitchen skills, do not fret, you can still serve Mama an excellent morning meal in the comfort of your own home.
Disclaimer: This isn't so much a "tiny hack" -- a tag we at Lifehacker use for simple tricks -- so much as a "tiny pleasure." It's something that I do every day that makes me happy. It doesn't improve anything except the flavour of my mornings, and everyone should give it a shot. (That's an espresso pun right there.)
Let's be serious for a moment: without that crackling, crystalized sugar crust on top, crème brûlée would just be custard. It would be very good custard, but that torched sugar is what makes it special. Brûlée-ing however, is not an act that should be reserved for crème. You can brûlée all sorts of foods, bringing a touch of decadence to every meal.
Hello, and welcome to Will It Casserole?, the column where I take your delicious concepts and re-imagine them as delicious casserole creations. Today we're taking one of my favourite sandwiches and transforming into a cheesy, ham-studded, layered piece of edible art.
Look, omelettes are wonderful little egg dishes - particularly when they involve cheese and other fillings - but there's no denying they require a bit of babying. If you want a cheesy, vegetable-studded egg dish that is much more forgiving of your dismal attention span, you need to start making frittatas.
Some people prefer sweet foods, others savoury. Sweet potato is equipped to handle both. Not only are these babies the perfect base for all sorts of fillings, they provide a bit more flavour (and nutrients) than their paler counterparts, and can be enjoyed morning, noon, and night. Here are three delicious options for breakfast, lunch and tea.
My favourite part of staying in hotels is hotel breakfast. Breakfast food, or at least the breakfast food I traditionally eat, is some of the simplest to prepare, but I really love it when someone else scrambled those eggs or fried that bacon for me. I genuinely look forward to it every time I travel.
Managing Editor of Lifehacker, Mark Serrels, has probably put more oats into his body than should be physically possible. He swears by the stuff. I always thought that the preparation time was just a little too much for me. However, after reading this guide, I am beginning to consider oats as great breakfast option.
