    My usual go-to for a high-protein breakfast (as a vegan) is either tofu scramble with pinto-bean 'sausage' patties and some toast+jam. I also like protein pancakes, smoothies, oatmeal (sweet or savory), and toast with peanut butter, bananas, and hemp seeds.

    I guess the important thing would be, what kind of breakfasts do you like?

    I'm low carb and my breakfast is generally early afternoon and for high protein it would be steak and 2 eggs and yesterday that was my meal along with yellow beans and pickled king oyster mushrooms. Total protein was around 60g's

    You took the words outta my mouth - I was thinking steak and eggs as well!

    Eggs, meat, yogurt.
    You're not giving us much to go on as far as what you like, and dietary preferences or restrictions, and how many calories you want to spend.

    My go-to is eggs and Lox. The second is chicken sausage and eggs.

    I'm pretty fond of pork tenderloin or sliced turkey for a quick breakfast sandwich and I cook ahead specifically to have it available. Adding cheese builds flavor as well as protein, but increases fat and sodium. Greek yogurt is great for protein if I'm not driving. A chicken breast gives you a lot of protein for the money and effort.

    I like to make a quick Chaffle with a large egg, 1/2 C of cheese and a TBS of almond flour. cook in a waffle maker for 2-3 mins and spread with a tsp of light cream cheese. Sprinkle with Everything but the bagel seasoning.

    What's a Chaffle? I've not been on these boards for a while, so forgive me if I've missed something obvious!

    It's a waffle made from cheese, very popular on keto.

    I typically will have 1/2 cup of quick oats, cinnamon, Non-Fat Plain Greek Yogurt (About 29g or 2 Tablespoons), 1 scoop of Whey Protein and throw in some blueberries. Gives me the carbs I need in the morning to keep me going and essentially matches the Protein in grams. Example, this morning I had that and my output was 35g of Carbs, 33g of Protein, 2g of Sugar (Didn't have the blueberries with it), 6g of Fat and 13 mg of Sodium

    I eat porridge or overnight oats predominantly but have been advised to start adding protein powder to porridge

    I have the same breakfast 7 days a week. I just dump a protein shake in my coffee. It’s 160 calories and 30 grams of protein.

    What kind(s) of protein have you used? The couple that I tried were not very good mixed with coffee.

    I just had an omelette with kidney beans and shredded cheese, topped with salsa. Delicious!

    My usual breakfast on days I'm working is 1/2 cup frozen fruit, 1/2 cup Liberté 2% Greek yoghurt, 1 scoop Leanfit protein & greens, 1/4 cup Fibre 1 Crunchy Original cereal, 1 cup Elmhurst Milked Walnuts, top up with water to 750 ml and blend. The fruit varies, usually mango these days, and I have the rest saved as a recipe (smoothie base) that I log and just log whatever fruit I used as a separate item. Using mango it works out to 398 calories, 36 g protein, 16 g fat, 34 g carbs.

    Meat and eggs will deliver protien in spades.

    Lately I've been having 2 hard boiled eggs with 170 grams of full fat Chobani and a small handful (about 20 grams) of Quaker Simply Granola and a little drizzle of honey. That gets me around 30g of protein in the morning.

    How many grams of protein are you looking to get in your high-protein breakfast?
