Yeehaw! Rodeo season is upon us, and aside from the roping and riding, one of our rodeo season favorites is forking into a giant cowboy breakfast. We’re talking plates piled high with hearty egg casseroles, buttery biscuits, and even a taco or two (this is Texas, after all). And this year, while we’re as eager as ever to get in on all the rodeo fun, we’re opting for a mellower start to our mornings with some at-home cowboy cooking easy enough for anyone to take on. So grab yer forks and boots, and dig into these Goodtaste-approved cowboy breakfast eats!
Cowboy Breakfast Pastry
Saddle up for the day ahead with this epic reconstruction of your favorite breakfast! I Am Homesteader combines maximal flavor and flaky texture to bring you this hearty morning meal. Feel free to personalize this recipe by adding additional ingredients to your puff pastry, like leftover vegetables, assorted chopped meats, and even hot sauce or peppers. Just fold, bake, and enjoy!
Cowboy Breakfast Casserole
Assemble this easy-to-make casserole from Epicurious the night before you want to serve it for a super-simple breakfast that bakes in the time it takes you to get out of your PJs. Packed with ground sausage, eggs, white bread, and spinach (even cowboys need their veggies), it’s a hearty a.m. feast that will have you ready to take on the day.
Cornmeal Biscuits with Chorizo Gravy
Every cowboy or cowgirl needs a good biscuits and gravy recipe in their arsenal, and there’s perhaps none more rodeo-inspired (or more Tex-Mex) than this one from Bon Appétit. It tastes like your favorite cornbread recipe joined forces with the ultimate breakfast biscuit, then got smothered in creamy chorizo gravy, hot sauce, and avocados (because, why not?). Who’s hungry?
Breakfast Tacos Al Pastor
Not that we need a reason to eat tacos for breakfast, but if we did, this recipe would be it. While we absolutely adore the flavors of slow-cooked al pastor, we also don’t always have time to wait for it to cook. That’s why we love this recipe from Half-Baked Harvest. It swaps in ground chicken (or turkey) for pork, so it cooks in a flash, but it’s still full of spicy-sweet al pastor flavors. Finish with a fried egg and any favorite taco toppings. Breakfast is served!
Cowboy Breakfast Skillet
Egg-averse? Not to worry—there’s a cowboy breakfast for you too. This skillet, which combines crumbled chorizo, diced potatoes, and a mix of chopped peppers and onions, is hearty enough to serve in a bowl on its own. Or, if you’re not anti-egg, top the entire skillet with a few fried ones and stir in some yolk-gravy goodness.
Cowboy Breakfast Sandwich
Need a quick-and-easy cowboy breakfast on the fly? Sink your teeth into this Texas toast–sized breakfast sandwich from one of our favorite cowboy cooks, Ree Drummond. Inside, there’s pan-fried sausage patties with scrambled eggs, melty cheese, and one spicy secret ingredient. Best of all? No silverware required.
