Ten gorgeous breakfasts that take just 15 minutes to cook

Our usual morning rush means that we can only dream about having the time to make and eat a delicious and nicely served breakfast — it simply takes too much time to cook. No doubt all of us prefer an extra hour of sleep to breakfast.

But we at Bright Side are sure that a good breakfast can make any morning better. It provides you with the energy and inspiration you need to start a new day. Especially if it takes just 15 minutes to make.
