They say there’s nothing like a well-balanced, nutritious breakfast to start your day. And to that we say “to hell with that.” Breakfast is the best excuse to eat dishes that are practically dessert, all before 10 AM. It’s not like your busy schedule won’t burn off the calories anyway, right? Right. (Or at least that’s what we tell ourselves.)

We’ve rounded up 10 over-the-top dishes that will not only satisfy your sweet tooth, but probably break it in the process. Scroll down to check them out and try not to gain weight by just looking at them.

Stale Doughnut Bread Pudding Muffins

Is there one ingredient in this dish that actually doesn’t sound appealing? If the answer is “yes,” then you’re probably wasting your time reading this article.

Carrot Cake Pancakes


It’s our goal in life to figure out ways to drizzle cream cheese on everything, to be honest. Carrots are also a vegetable, which means this dish is obviously healthy. Get our Carrot Cake Pancakes recipe.

Nutella-Stuffed French Toast


We question the sanity of anyone who doesn’t like Nutella. Luckily for most of us, this french toast is chock-full of what we can only describe as the nectar of the Gods. Get our Nutella-Stuffed French Toast recipe.

Red Velvet Crepes

Tastes of Lizzy T

The French may find this Southern-inspired take on a Parisian classic to be unrefined and, quite simply, blasphemous, but there’s no denying these colorful treats taste damn good. And isn’t that all that matters? Get the recipe.

Salted Caramel and Banana Breakfast Strata


Salted caramel and bananas are a match made in tastebud heaven. And we’re not monkeying around when we say that. Get our Salted Caramel and Banana Breakfast Strata recipe.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Donuts

Baker by Nature

It’s peanut butter jelly time, peanut butter jelly time. Oh, and donut time as well. What have we done to deserve such greatness, a.k.a. the hybrid of two delicious American classics? Get the recipe.

Churro Waffles

Cookies and Cups

Churros are a fantastic breakfast food that pairs well with coffee or Mexican hot chocolate, but these waffles take the dish to a whole other level. Who can deny the taste, smell, and texture of cinnamon-sugar? We certainly can’t. Get the recipe.

Chocolate Brioche Cinnamon Rolls


This recipe had to go ahead and add chocolate to cinnamon rolls, as if they weren’t already a drool-worthy indulgence. Needless to say, you’ll never be able to eat just one. Get our Chocolate Brioche Cinnamon Rolls recipe.

S’Mores Pop Tarts

Big Bear's Wife

Sorry, Kellogg’s. You’ve got nothing on these homemade, marshmallow, fudgy interpretations of your boxed and packaged varieties. Nice trying, though. Get the recipe.

Blackberry Cream Cheese Crumb Cake

Sally's Baking Addiction

We were reluctant to add anything with fruit to this list, but then we saw the words “cream cheese” and “crumb cake” and made the exception. Because obviously.  Get the recipe.
