The Chew's Breakfast Menus for the Trophy Wife Moms

  • By Micheline Goldstein

In celebration of the “ABC Fall Preview Special Presented by The Chew,” airing SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 7|6c, The Chew has prepared breakfast menus that reflect the personalities and parenting styles of the three moms featured in ABC's new comedy, Trophy Wife!

Check out these recipes and find out more about Kate, Diane, and Jackie.


Kate, a new step-mom of three who's not comfortable in the kitchen, wants to make sure she's feeding Warren, Hillary, and Bert food that's delicious and easy to make, but still good for them. Kate could serve Mario Batali's Black Bean and Egg Tacos, an easy recipe that only takes about 30 minutes to whip up for those hectic mornings before school.

She could also try Aaron McCargo Jr.'s recipe for Cheddar Biscuits with Eggs, which can be prepared the night before and baked right before serving.

If you want more great recipes like these, check out The Chew's 7 Days, 7 Easy Breakfasts list, inspired by Kate.

Diane, Pete's first wife and the mother of Warren and Hillary, is pretty intense. She's a doctor and a former Olympic athlete! There's no doubt she has a hands-on parenting style, and would only serve her kids food that's healthy. Try out some of the great recipes The Chew selected for her!

Mark Bittman's Breakfast Pilaf and watch how it's made here.

Daphne Oz's Gladiator Oatmeal

Lunch Box Yogurt Parfait


Finally, there's Jackie. Jackie is Pete's second wife, and mom to the fabulous Bert. She's a little weird and a little wacky, but her heart's always in the right place! If you're in the mood for something new, give these adventurous breakfast recipes a try:

Sausage and Cheddar Bread Pudding

French Toast with Stone Fruit Salad
