School started yesterday, and I have planned dinners (some of which I shared last week), and lunches (which I will share next week), so I’m all organized, right? Except for the most important meal of the day-breakfast! Now that school started, what’s for breakfast? Don’t worry, they are getting breakfast, just not as efficient as I would like. I’m rushing to make sure I am getting them breakfast before they run out the door in the morning. Actually it’s more of a team effort-Tom, my husband makes breakfast for the boys and himself, while I’m getting our coffee and my breakfast ready. It serves as a very busy and crowded kitchen in the mornings. School has definitely started in our house! I needed healthy make-ahead breakfast recipes to tackle this weekend!
Yesterday I spent some time on Pinterest looking at different healthy make-ahead breakfasts. Here’s the thing though, it has to be healthy and fast. I don’t want a bunch of breakfast casseroles- they get real old fast. So I came across Fugalitygal.com, and she had quite the selection of make-ahead healthy recipes. I will be highlighting some of them in the weeks ahead as I make them, but I would love your feedback as you make them, and please include pictures!
Now, I would like to preface this with I do have Evol egg burritos in the freezer just in case, but Tom usually makes them homemade burritos/tacos in the morning. Apparently, it’s easier to drive and eat. They also like pretty plain breakfasts, no pumpkin, apple, or blueberry muffins for this crew.
I probably will not make these recipes exactly. I’m using her recipes more as guidelines as to how to prep everything so it won’t get freezer burn-that’s the worse! All of that work and money goes in the trash! Plus, your family, like mine, probably have their favorites (and the list of what they won’t eat!).
Here’s What’s For Breakfast:
- Freezer Breakfast Burritos
- Freezer Breakfast Sandwiches – with English muffins
- Homemade Ham and Cheese Pockets
- Smoothie Freezer Packets
- Freezer-Friendly Everything Bagel Bomb
- Savory Freezer Breakfast Rolls
She also has Freezer French Toast Sticks, pancakes, muffins, waffles, and casseroles. I figure by the time I start with the six recipes above, that should last me a good few months-maybe I can sleep in a little? Share your favorite healthy make-ahead breakfast recipes with us!
