Breakfast Ideas

I don’t know about you, but I never know what to eat in the morning. For most people it seems easy: a bowl of cereal and milk and they’re good to go. I only have two problems with that. One: I hate cereal. The other: I hate milk. So I have to get creative. Here are my ideas:
Breads
  • Pancakes (make ahead and freeze, then just pull out a few and toast)
  • Waffles (make ahead and freeze, then just pull out a few and toast)
  • Chocolate Waffles (absolutely yummy!)
  • Cinnamon Muffins–these whole grain muffins will leave you feeling great and give you great energy for your day.
  • Cinnamon rolls (Make in advance, cool, bag and freeze. Pull out night before, microwave for breakfast)
  • Cinnamon pull-apart bread (Make in advance, wrap in foil and freeze. Then pull out night before, and bake for about 20 minutes at 350.)
  • French toast (Make lots, freeze leftovers. Remove from freezer, toast and serve.)
  • French Breakfast Puffs An interesting take on a muffin. A little more dense, but very tasty.
Eggs
Sometimes they’re good for you, sometimes they’re bad for you. While the scientists debate, I eat eggs.
Fruit
  • Sliced fruit or berries. Can eat with yogurt.
  • Fruit smoothie (breakfast in a cup!)
  • Piece of fruit: apple, orange, banana, grapes, melon, pears, peaches, strawberries, pineapple, etc.
Cereal
Breakfast sandwiches
  • English muffin topped with cooked lean sausage patty, small slice of cheese, and scrambled eggs.
  • English muffin topped with bacon (buy already cooked, keep in freezer, and just microwave however many slices you need) and scrambled eggs. Can add cheese if desired.
Potatoes
If you have the time, potatoes make an amazing breakfast. You’ll be full all day! Use frozen potatoes, try to prepare fresh potatoes the night before, or use left-over baked potatoes to cut your prep time in the morning.
Other ideas
  • Purchase or make crepes and freeze. Pull one out in the morning and top with yogurt and fruit. Roll and eat.
  • Pair a fruit smoothie with a whole grain muffin or granola for a complete breakfast.
