OKG7 inventive breakfasts

The Wedge Pizzeria

4709 N. Western Ave. 

thewedgeokc.com 

602-3477

For
the last two years, The Wedge has offered a grab-and-go breakfast for
$5. It’s faster than a drive-thru, and way better. One of the most
popular items is the meat horn with pepperoni, sausage and mozzarella
cheese, and it’s a favorite nontraditional breakfast.

Can you eat chicken for breakfast?

Is
that even allowed? Do yourself a favor and try several varieties of
chicken quiche that rotate throughout the week. (Friday is reserved for
barbecue chicken quiche.)

The Red Cup

3122 N. Classen Blvd. 

525-3430

With
its vegetarian and vegan menu, breakfast treasures that are off the
beaten path are at The Red Cup. Try the ever-popular biscuit and gravy.
It’s a giant buttermilk biscuit with mushroom gravy, homemade soy
sausage and scallions.

For
south-of-the-border flair, try the breakfast burrito served for weekend
brunch with eggs, cheddar, black beans, onions and bell peppers, topped
with more cheddar, sour cream and salsa.

Waffle Champion

1212 N. Walker Ave.

525-9235

Waffle
Champion long ago threw accepted notions of how to enjoy a waffle out
the window. The restaurant offers all sorts of unusual, delicious
options. Try the waffle sandwich with applewood bacon, free-range eggs
and Tillamook cheddar.

Or, get one stuffed with butter-poached cold water lobster, sauce gribiche and chives.

Don’t miss the meatless option filled with Brussels sprouts hash, granny smith apples, brie and balsamic honey.

The Earth Natural Cafe and Deli

746 Asp Ave., Norman 

573-5933

Head
to Norman for a delicious vegetarian breakfast at The Earth. Don’t
leave without trying the Scramble Mountain. It is a biscuit and gravy
with soy sausage and your choice of tofu scramble or scrambled eggs
garnished with sprouts and greens.

Devotees
love the Rancherito burrito with eggs, farmer’s cheese and veggie chili
grilled in a whole wheat tortilla and topped with avocado, jalapeños
and melted farmer’s cheese.

Kitchen No. 324

324 N. Robinson Ave.

763-5911

The
Kitchen’s chefs threw the eggs Benedict rule book out and created a
fried green tomato Benedict with poached egg, fried green tomatoes and
hollandaise sauce on an English muffin.

Channel
your inner hippie and try the house-made granola. It’s the chef’s
secret recipe and is served with fresh berries and milk.

Try the smoked salmon bagel with double whipped cream, caper berries, shaved red onion and salmon roe.

Cafe 501

5825 NW Grand Blvd.

844-1501

On
weekends, Cafe 501 pulls out all the stops. For Saturday breakfast, try
the stuffed French toast made with walnut raisin bread stuffed with
cream cheese, strawberries and bacon or sausage with syrup on top.

On
Sundays, we recommend the breakfast quiche or the southwestern
chilaquiles, which include a sauté of chorizo, tortilla strips and salsa
verde. Add two fried eggs, black beans and sour cream, and you just
might yell, “Olé!”

Jimmy’s Egg

1616 N. May Ave.

942-8710

While
Jimmy’s Egg is known for its perfect omelets, its menu will shake up
your breakfast routine. The Santa Cruz sandwich is scrambled eggs and
smoked turkey breast topped with melted Swiss cheese and avocado and is
served on a toasted ciabatta bun with home fries.

Another
offbeat option is the chilaquiles, with three scrambled eggs, onions,
tomatoes and crispy tortilla strips. It’s topped with ahogada salsa and
drizzled with sour cream.
