Make Ahead Easy BreakFast Ideas
Our family loves my McMom sandwiches for when we need a portable
breakfast that will stick with you for a road trip....can't count how
many family trips have started with this one.
slice of cheese
slice of ham -- thin
2 slices of bread.......make like a grilled cheese sand
Also, I make mega-batches of all sorts of muffins and freeze them.
(couldn't live w/o my freezer!) We microwave one at a time for
whenever we need one. I make several kinds so we can have a change of
flavors each day, or fit preferences a bit.

You can also try making quiche cups and freezing them, they freeze very well. I will try to find a recipe for it, but basically it's like an egg casserole that you pour into muffin cups and freeze, then pop them in the microwave when you want them

quick breakfast recipes
When we were kids, my dad would freeze our left over pancakes and
french toast from Sunday breakfast, and then during the week, we could
pop them in the toaster or microwave. Bacon can also be microwaved when
raw, or reheated this way, but I don't know how well cooked bacon
freezes. Sausage can be pre-cooked, and also microwaved.
These are all things you could make up on Saturday or Sunday, and
freeze or refridgerate for during the week for home cooked, quick, and
For new things, try making up omelets with left over meats and veggies-
ham, peppers, mushrooms, cheese, etc. You can also try your hand at
crepe's, but those take a bit longer to make enough to be filling, as
well as the costs for the fillings.
When I was little, one of my favorite breakfasts was, oddly enough,
beef stew. See, my dad worked outside, so in the winter, he'd heat up a
large can of dinty moore beef stew to put in his thermos, and there was
always a bowl left over for me to eat. You get potatoes, vegetables,
and meat all in one nice warm bowl.
I also loved waffles, either frozen or homemade. Hash browns, breakfast
casseroles (which can be made the night before, then just stick it in
the oven in the morning, plus plenty of left over's for later in the
When you make up meat for dinner, such as ham, fry up the left overs
for breakfast, or add them into an omelet or casserole for breakfast.
Fresh fruit is always a good addition to a warm breakfast. My husband
likes to chop fresh fruit up into plain oatmeal- banana's,
strawberries, blueberries, etc
You can make breakfast sandwiches similiar to McDonalds by using
english muffins, biscuits, even small pancakes as the "bun", and
assorted meats, eggs, and cheese. One good one: cook up sausage patties
and make mini sausage sized pancakes. Drizzle with some syrup, and eat.
Warm, hand held, and good.
Waffle sandwiches- spread with all-fruit spread, and top with another
waffle. Cut in half, eat like a peanut butter sandwich.
Very up the types of biscuts you make- corn muffins, english muffins,
bagels, homestyle biscuts, cheesy homestyle biscuts, fruit flavored
Hope this all helps!

I want to thank everyone for the help with the breakfast ideas!Right
now I am bopping myself in the forehead saying "why didn't I think of
I loved the idea of cooking things up one day for the whole week and
freezing it. I believe I had several suggestions for that.And the
simple things like bagels and english muffins.
I have cooked these things before, but when it came time to come up
with different things my mind went blank. Kinda like knowing all the
answers for a test, until the test is right in front of you then your
Again, thanks to everyone for the suggestions!

Instant oatmeal! It's all we have time for here. Not only does it taste great, but it's fortified. My youngest daughter is anaemic and her Dr. told her to eat regular instant oatmeal, glass of orange juice, glass of milk every morning. She throws some dried fruit in it, teaspoon of honey and it keeps her going fine until lunch. My husband takes it to work with him and has it as his morning snack and afternoon snack. Yummy and easy!
