As parents, we start our mornings quite early. There are very few things promised to us as we embark on the day. We can always count on morning shows, like Good Morning America, to be there as we whip up a variety of breakfasts for our little ones and nurse our first (of many) cup of coffee, all while trying to make it through the morning unscathed. In honor of GMA’s 40th Anniversary we’re rounding up our 40 favorite breakfast recipes. After all, it is the most important meal of the day!
