So your choice of accommodation is in a hostel. Now hostels are full of backpackers on the go and when it comes to breakfast time, hostel kitchens are often busy places. So busy sometimes that hostel food needs to be made quickly using limited utensils yet, still be yummy and healthy. Keeping this in mind, I’ve put together this list of 5 easy breakfast meals to cook in a hostel. 

The breakfast meals I have chosen for this post are based on meals I myself make while staying in hostels. I know how busy the kitchen can be and having to wait for utensils to become available to cook my breakfast. This is why these recipes I provide use limited utensils and ingredients yet, are yummy and healthy.

Best thing about these recipes are you don’t need to be a gourmet chef to make them. As long as you know some basics like boiling water and using a hot frying pan you should have no trouble at all.

Let’s make breakfast.


Muesli with Fruit and Yogurt


Muesli Fruit Yoghurt - mixed together make a great breakfast.

First breakfast meal to make in a hostel is one you don’t need to cook. And it only needs three ingredients – muesli, yogurt and fruit. This is also one of the healthiest breakfasts you can have. Plenty of grains, fruit of your choice and yogurt to keep your gut in check! Each ingredient on their own are nice, but put them together and they are great.


Loaded Scrambled Eggs


Loaded Scrambled Eggs with mushroom, tomato and spinach.

I enjoy making loaded scrambled eggs for breakfast in a hostel kitchen. It requires limited utensils and includes some of my favourite ingredients. For one person I use 2 eggs and add many healty options – mushrooms, spinach, mini roma tomatoes, grated cheese and sometimes a little Feta cheese. Cooked altogether, this concoction will keep you going most of the day.



A Stack Of 4 Pancakes With Butter And Jam.

Who doesn’t love a stack of pancakes for breakfast! Easy to make and depending on the topping you can turn them into sweet or savoury pancakes. I like to top mine with butter and jam, sometimes maple syrup and other times I cook some bacon and a egg to go on top. Plenty of options go with pancakes that can be easily made in a frypan over a stove top.


Fry Up (Full English Breakfast)


English Breakfast Fry Up Includes Fried Sausage, Bacon, Egg, Mushrooms, Tomatoes, Baked Bakes Served With Toast.

A good ‘fry up’ or Full English Breakfast is one of my favourite breakfast dishes to make while travelling, camping and backpacking. It is especially good on a cold morning. Not overly healthy as all ingredients are fried but I find making this often keeps me going all day! Consisting of fried eggs, bacon, sausage, mushrooms, tomato and baked beans it is often served with toast, or bread, to mop up the juices left behind. All this goes down well with a juice a hot cup of coffee or tea! I find it a perfect way to start a full day out and about.


Breakfast Burrito

Wrapping your breakfast is a great way to save on needing a plate to eat off! Besides this, they are yummy and quite healthy – but this will depend on the ingredients you put inside your burrito or wrap. Some of the things I like inside my burrito is scrambled egg, bacon, a little grated cheese, avocado and tomato. Sometimes I add a little sauce or mayonnaise as the ingredients can be a little ‘dry’ inside the wrap.
