30 Thai Breakfast Recipes

Welcome, you’ve arrived to the correct place if you’re seeking for some mouthwatering Thai breakfast ideas to try out. This post has a compilation of delicious Thai breakfast recipes that I am certain you will adore, and I have included them for your convenience.

1. Sweet Chili Eggs

One of the greatest and simplest egg dishes you can create is Sweet Chili Eggs, which consists of fried eggs doused in a sweet and spicy Thai sauce. It just takes 15 minutes to prepare this dish!
Gently cook an egg, one at a time. If you want perfectly cooked eggs, you shouldn’t overcrowd your pan.
Fry the egg for approximately a minute on each side, undisturbed. In this way, the egg yolk will remain intact after being flipped over.

2. Thai Scrambled Egg Tacos

For a breakfast that will keep you up at night, try these Thai Scrambled Egg Tacos, which are made with creamy scrambled eggs infused with spicy Thai ingredients and served on tortillas.

Heaven is a bowl of fluffy scrambled eggs. The eggs in these tacos are particularly airy because they are cooked in coconut milk. And the utmost attention to detail that is paid when producing these eggs.

To begin, in a bowl, whisk together the eggs, coconut milk, and salt & pepper. To ensure that enough of air is included to make them light and airy, beat them very well.

3. Thai Omelette (Kai Jeow)

One of the most well-known and widely-eaten street dishes in Thailand is the kai jeow (), or Thai-style omelette. Easy to prepare, tasty, and satiating because to the inclusion of rice. From a street vendor in Bangkok, you can have it for as little as 20 baht (less than a dollar) and it will come with rice. The aroma of a freshly made Thai omelet is unmatched. It’s instantly identifiable and tantalizing aroma might make you hungry even when you’re full.

Since it’s so tasty, many of you who have had it may want to make it at home. Some of you may have been looking at recipes already, but you’re still on the fence about actually making one. Let me tell you, making a Thai omelette is as simple as it gets when it comes to Thai cuisine. In fact, it’s one of the first things Thai youngsters learn to prepare alongside quick noodles (hey, they count!), fried rice, and Thai pork toast.

4. Thai Fried Egg Salad Recipe

This recipe for yam khai dao, which is a Thai fried egg salad, yields an irresistible dish consisting of crispy fried eggs combined with sweet tomatoes, purple shallots, crunchy peanuts, fragrant coriander and Chinese celery, chili peppers, and a salad dressing that manages to be sweet, sour, tangy, and funky all at the same time. This is the most recent recipe in our Weekend Eggs series, which focuses on traditional recipes from different cultures that include eggs.

5. Thai Roti Recipe

This recipe for Thai roti makes a delicious version of a common street meal in Thailand that is also known as Thai banana pancake. The sweet and salty tastes of a pancake that is crispy on the outside and topped with condensed milk and bananas will have you hooked right away. Learn how to create one of Thailand’s most well-liked sweets with just a few basic ingredients.

6. Thai Waffle Recipe ขนมรังผึ้ง

Thais do, in fact, have their own take on the waffle. In Thailand, these snacks are known as “kanom rung peung,” which translates as “bee hive snack.” They are often prepared with coconut milk, palm sugar, shredded coconut, and sweet corn, however you may substitute taro, raisins, or any other desired ingredient for the corn.

Although I often have them for breakfast (I freeze them and then just throw them in the toaster), in Thailand they are sold on the street and are eaten as snacks at any time of day (sort of like a doughnut!). You don’t need any additional toppings on them because they are already sweet and wonderful on their own.

7. Coconut Curry Oatmeal with Fried Thai Bananas and Honey

The result was a delicious variation on traditional oatmeal. Don’t worry if you can’t get Thai bananas; the recipe will still turn out OK without them. Bananas of any variety will work in the dish because they all offer a wonderful touch. If you’d rather not make steel-cut oats, regular oats will do just fine.

8. Breakfast Buddha Bowl – Thai Style

Get your day off to a healthy and stress-free start! This beautiful and healthy Breakfast Buddha Bowl consists of an egg and avocado atop a bed of rice, kale, and other vegetables.

The combination of kale, butternut squash cubes, and kohlrabi on brown rice is brought together by a sauce made of roasted garlic and cream.

As I ate it, I couldn’t help but think about how many of the staples of a traditional Thai breakfast were already present. When we were in Chiang Mai, I would get it from the street vendor near our apartment.

9. Pan Eggs Breakfast Thai Style (Kai Grata)

Chinese sausage and Vietnamese ham should be sliced very thinly. To brown the Chinese sausage and Vietnamese ham, you need only to sear them in a skillet over medium heat that has been lightly buttered. Take off the heat when the ground beef is no longer pink. Putting aside.

Bring a skillet or serving dish up to temperature over low heat. Break two eggs into a bowl of melted butter. Top the eggs with the prepared toppings (Chinese sausage, Vietnamese ham, seasoned minced pork), then cover the pan. The eggs should be steamed for a few minutes until the whites are set and the yolks are done to taste. To avoid scorching the eggs, cook them over a low flame.

When it’s done to taste, take it off the fire and sprinkle on some spring onions. Pepper of any color, sriracha sauce, Maggi flavor, etc. are all acceptable additions.

10. Boiled Eggs with Thai Dipping Sauce

Breakfast eggs just became a lot more exciting with the addition of these boiled eggs dipped in Thai Dipping Sauce. It will be a nice variation from your typical morning fare thanks to the seasoned lime juice and a little kick of spice.

The components of a typical Thai dipping sauce—lime juice, fish sauce, and sugar—are few and uncomplicated. Making a sugar-free version of this sauce required me to ensure that the erythritol and monkfruit would be sweet enough without leaving any lingering minty or cooling flavors in the mouth.

11. Mango Sticky Rice Oatmeal

Incorporating flavors and textures from the classic Thai dessert, this mango sticky rice porridge is a quick and easy morning meal. Stovetop oats with chia seeds and a splash of coconut milk. Mangoes, black sesame seeds, sea salt, and a pinch of chile powder round it off, along with a richer coconut sauce.

12. Sweet Bananas with Coconut Milk

  • Put the water and sugar into a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat.
  • Cook the chestnuts and bananas for approximately 10 minutes at a low simmer, or until the liquid has evaporated and the bananas are still firm and brilliant.
  • Turn off the heat and divide into two bowls.
  • Put some coconut and sesame seeds in each dish (about 3 tablespoons each).
  • Just before serving, sprinkle with salt and pass the extra coconut milk on the side.

13. Thai-style Congee

In many Asian cuisines, broken or stale rice is combined with water or broth to make a delicious porridge known as congee. The shrimp paste and fish sauce give this dish a more authentic Thai flavor, but there are so many other ways to make congee in Thailand that I don’t want you to think this is “the” Thai method. Making your congee a bit thicker and less broken down yields khao tom, while reducing it to a soupy and fully broken down consistency yields jok.

14. Thai Coconut Shrimp Eggs Benedict

I think I’ve finally found the perfect eggs benny in Thai Coconut Shrimp Eggs Benedict. Served on crispy baked coconut shrimp and doused in a mild Thai curry hollandaise sauce, these eggs are cooked to perfection and topped with the curry and shrimp.

This really tasty breakfast dish also happens to be quite good for you. Yes, it’s completely insane. It is gluten-free, paleo, and Whole30 friendly by design. Yes, it will absolutely blow your mind.

15. Crispy Thai Brussel Sprouts & Polenta Brunch Bowl

We believe that a day should begin with a savory meal. To that end, we found the perfect recipe for a brunch bowl with this Crispy Thai Brussel Sprouts & Polenta Bowl.

The bowl’s texture is as impressive as the overall flavor explosion provided by the buttery polenta, jalapeo chimichurri, and Thai-spiced brussels sprouts. Each component of this stunning bowl is delicious in its own right, from the velvety polenta at the bottom to the jiggly poached eggs and the extra-crisp roasted brussels sprouts on top.

16. Pa Thong Ko (Thai Donuts)

To please both your friends and your taste senses, you should fry up some delicious Thai doughnuts. Donut sticks are made by frying simple dough in oil, which results in donut sticks that are light and fluffy. Donut sticks are commonly consumed for breakfast.

17. Thai Iced Coffee

I am sure that I am not the only one who has developed an addiction to iced coffee, and I cannot say that I do not fear that I will miss it while I am away from home. You should know that it’s not always going to be necessary! During my time in Thailand, I was relieved to find that iced coffee was readily available everywhere.

In point of fact, due to the fact that it tastes so good, I may have indulged in even more than normal. Not only does this have the distinct flavor of cardamom, but you’re also going to add some almond to the mix!

You may have it with condensed milk if you want it to be even sweeter and more indulgent than it already is, but I like it with heavy cream since it gives it a velvety feel.

18. Easy Thai Fruit Salad

Enjoy a little piece of paradise with this stunning Thai fruit salad recipe. A tropical fruit salad with a sweet coconut-lime dressing that complements the fruit’s natural flavor without masking it. You can also use a mix of local and exotic fruit for this recipe.

Make this quick and healthy fruit salad with whatever fruits you choose. Fruit salad served in a pineapple boat makes for an impressive appearance, sure to make your party guests green with envy. A little extra visual impact can be achieved by including certain tropical fruits like star fruit. ​

19. Thai Pancake – Thai Roti

In both Thailand and India, you’ll be able to get roti, a type of bread that is pan-fried and eaten as a snack. In India, this is offered alongside savory foods, whereas in Thailand, it’s a sweet snack.

The most common preparation involves folding the roti like a crepe and filling it with whipped cream and fruit.

On the other hand, you can find versions that use condensed milk to provide a creamier texture. Mango and banana were my go-to toppings, but you could put anything on them.

20. Thai Congee (Rice Porridge)

This comforting soup is a staple in many cultures and is commonly consumed when one is ill, much like chicken soup is in the United States. Early in the morning, you may find a stall in any major city in Thailand selling congee, which is called “Joke” (adapted from Cantonese).

Thai donuts are a common pairing with this. Khao tom, a dish with a similar flavor profile that is thinner than joke, is another option. See a vendor producing Joke the old fashioned manner in the photographs below. It is simple, tasty, and easy to eat, making it ideal for someone who is sick and in need of a cure.

21. Thai Pork Burritos

Aside from my undying devotion to burritos, pork-based meals are among my favorites. You probably feel the same way, so why not make an amazing supper out of the two?

The stir-fry sauce, sriracha sauce, etc. that you use to make this dish give it its signature Thai flavor. The combination of flavors in this burrito is both unexpected and comforting. When you make it, you’ll understand what I’m talking about.

22. A Vegan Fried Egg Recipe, Thai Style

Thai fried eggs, in contrast to their Western counterparts, are supposed to be brown and crispy. The manner of cooking has led to this effect. In Thailand, fried eggs are born of the high heat deep frying in a wok, rather than a low heat pan fry. At this point, the egg yolk should have hardened.

You can easily achieve the same crispiness as traditional Thai fried eggs by using bean curd sheets, or yuba as they are known in Japan. Two separate cooking steps are required to achieve this. The eggs are heated once they have been assembled. They are fried in the second.

23. Skinny Thai Breakfast Quesadilla

Prepare a tidy tabletop by setting out two tortillas. Fill up a tortilla with Monterey Jack cheese, sliced chicken, peanut satay sauce, sliced red peppers, and chopped green onions. Cover the fillings with the second tortilla. Lightly mist the tortilla’s top with olive oil cooking spray to prevent sticking.

Place quesadilla in hot pan, spray side down. Toast for a minute or two, or until golden brown. Spray the top of the tortilla and flip it in the pan. Roast until the exterior is a deep golden color.

24. Thai Coconut Pudding Pancakes

Thai coconut rice pudding pancakes provide a perfect balance of crispiness, creaminess, and addictiveness.

  • The ingredients for the pudding pancakes should be mixed together in a bowl.
  • Grease a pan for making aebleskivers heavily with either vegetable oil or ghee and heat it over medium heat.
  • When ready, fill each well with the pudding pancake mixture until it’s about two-thirds full.
  • Leave covered for 3–4 minutes.
  • Cook for three more minutes without the lid, or until the outside is golden and crispy, and then top with sweet corn or scallions.
  • Use skewers or a spoon to carefully pry apart the edges of each section.
  • Smother in sauce and dish out!

25. Thai Toast With Peanut Butter, Sriracha, and Cilantro

This dish first appeared in a more basic form in Bon Appetit Magazine; since then, we’ve tweaked it by adding honey to bring out the savory and salty undertones. For those who have never tried it before, peanut butter on toast is a quick and easy way to get some protein into your system first thing in the breakfast and a great approach to combat hypoglycemia.

The addition of sriracha, lime juice, and cilantro elevates the flavor of this open-faced Thai sandwich to new heights. If you’re looking for a new, easy, and delicious breakfast option, give this Thai toast a try. Best of all, it has positive health effects.

26. Thai Fried Bananas

If you’re a fan of bananas like I am, you already know that fried bananas are the stuff that dreams are made of.

They are exceptionally sugary and fluffy, making them the ideal accompaniment to anything from a dollop of ice cream to a slice of cake.

These bananas have a batter coating, which results in a crispier and more golden texture. Be sure to completely cover them, though, so that none of the banana flavor escapes.

To accompany them, serve whipped coconut cream that has been lightly toasted.

27. Vegan Thai Rice Salad

This vegan Thai rice salad is wonderful for lunch, dinner, as a side dish, and even for meal planning. It can be made in advance and stored in the refrigerator. It’s one of those foolproof dishes that’s perfect for any occasion and won’t ever let you down.

28. Khao Niao Mamuang (Thai Mango Sticky Rice)

This sweet dish hailing from Thailand is made with sticky rice, coconut milk, sugar, salt, and fresh mangoes.

During the summer months of mango season in Thailand (April and May), it is eaten with a spoon or sometimes with your hands. These months fall during the mango season. It is a frequent type of cuisine sold on the street.

It is a sumptuous dessert that satisfies all of your taste sensations with its combination of sweet, salty, sour, and creamy flavors.

29. Authentic Sangkaya Recipe (Thai Custard)

The traditional Thai dessert known as sangkaya is prepared by steaming coconut milk, eggs, and sugar in either a small dessert dish or a pumpkin that has been hollowed out. This is a very well-known Thai dish, and you may enjoy it either warm or cold. You can have it any way.

When mixed with mango and coconut sticky rice, this custard takes on a really heavenly quality.

30. Thai Tea Overnight Oats Recipe

There’s a good reason why Thai tea is so popular; it’s energizing, lightly spicy, and has just the right amount of sweetness and bitterness (from the tea). Hence, I reasoned, there was no reason I couldn’t have it first thing in the breakfast.

Here in the house, we try to avoid dairy and refined sugar as much as possible, but with a few simple adjustments, I was able to infuse oatmeal with that authentic Thai Tea flavor. Since Thai tea mix typically contains artificial flavors and colors, I opted to make my own version using just spices I already had on hand.
