Help! Looking for quick easy breakfast ideas for my kids to eat before school!

post #1 of 30

Help, I am looking for some quick breakfast ideas for three kids to eat in the morning before school. I am very interested in recipes that you can pre make and freeze.

Sorry, cereal is the favorite around here!

My kids get scrambled eggs, grits, biscuits, toast, french toast, grill cheese and bagels & fruit for breakfast. I get up before them to cook (I choose from the list, I don't cook it all everyday!) so they'll have a hot breakfast before school and the bagels & fruit are the back-up for days that I'm running late and don't have time to cook. Some new recipes would be a good change for me too.

Holy moly!!! What time do you have to get up??? I already get up at 6 to get myself ready, the dogs fed, lunchs and backpacks ready, get the kids up at 7 and feed them cereal or toast to leave the house by 7:30 I can't imagine trying to get up any earlier to cook and then having to clean up the dishes or clean them after work!!!

I bake muffins and make pancakes on the weekends and freeze them.

I make up huge batches of homemade waffles (plain or ones with real blueberries), pancakes (plain, blueberries, applesauce and oatmeal) and even french toast. Cook it all up and freeze for later. Than all I have to do is toss in the toaster or microwave for a few seconds in the morning. I also do huge batches of breakfast burittos-scrambled eggs with cheese, breakfast meat (crumbled up cooked sausage or bacon, even cut up ham lunchmeat), frozen hashbrowns or I dice up my own and fry. Put them together, wrap up in alum foil and freezer. Take out, unwrap from foil, wrap up in a papertowel and microwave until hot. Make muffins ahead of time and freeze them. That is really all I make ahead of time.
Everything else I make doesnt take much time in the mornings. My kids like oatmeal too, we get the instant kind. Scrambled eggs and toast. Hot pockets. Even toast and some fruit or yogurt is a quick healthy breakfast.

I make Freezer French Toast, an entire loaf of bread at a time. Freeze in a large Ziploc bag and pop them in the toaster on school mornings. The same can be done with waffles. I also make and freeze muffins and egg muffins (thaw the egg muffins before reheating in the microwave).

It's also pretty quick to whip up Breakfast Burritos in the morning, but freezing them didn't work well for us. And oatmeal, traditional style, only takes 3 minutes in the microwave.

In a big rush, I toast the French Toast or Waffles, and make Peanut Butter and Jelly Breakfast Sandwiches with them. These can be eaten on the go, too. HTH.

There is a great recipe for freezer egg english muffins, I bumped it up for you in the breakfast food section.
I also like to assemble enough breakfast burritos for about 3 days and just keep them in the fridge for quick re-heat.

I did try this before, the kids loved them. Thanks for the recipe.

*I just made a huge batch of blueberry pancakes tonight for dinner and have the rest on a cookie sheet freezing. When they are frozen I'll throw them in a ziploc bag and keep in the freezer. Just takes a minute to heat in the microwave for school. This is my first year. Ds was in preschool pm last year.
*My kids like the instant raisin oatmeal so that'll be a staple
*My dd loves yogurt and fruit for breakfast sometimes with cinnamon toast
* you can scramble eggs in a mug sprayed with cooking spray and cook it in the microwave.
*boiled eggs, can be done ahead of time
