Whether you have a kindergartner who needs a good breakfast, a swimmer who needs fuel, a homeschooled student who needs some solid protein, or a college student who heads out the door to a 14-hour day, most of our students need a good hearty breakfast once school starts back up in the fall. It’s sometimes a challenge to think of nutritious breakfasts that are quick and easy, can be made ahead, or are self-serve. Here are a few breakfast tricks in the MSK bag these days:
Easy Self-Serve Breakfasts:
I love Self-serve Breakfasts at this point in my life. My kids are all old enough that they really don’t need me to make breakfast for them. It sure makes everyone’s life easier, however, if we have a few staples on hand.
Easy-to-make Quick Breakfasts:
These breakfasts take just a few minutes to throw together.
- Michael’s Magnificent Smoothies
- Pressed Egg Sandwiches
- Irish Bacon
- Baked Oatmeal
- Hearty Breakfast Casserole
All of these breakfasts can be made ahead and frozen.
Some of these recipes can be made, baked, and portioned out before freezing. All that is required on a busy morning is a quick reheat.
- Spinach Quiche
- Easy No-Crust Ham Quiche
- Vegetable Romano Quiche
- Christmas Pie (Quiche)
- Miniature Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Souffles
- Spinach Sausage Pie
Some of these muffin recipes can be made ahead of time, stored in the fridge and baked up on-demand each morning. Nothing like fresh-baked hot muffins for breakfast!
- Hearty Pumpkin Muffins
- Mom’s Perfect Bran Muffins
- Amazing Raisin, Pineapple, Zucchini, and Bran Muffins
Some of these can be made and frozen before baking. These might take a little bit longer to bake but still require no morning-of prep.
