    I just found these recipes for refrigerator oatmeal made in mason jars. Easy to make, healthy, and many different flavors. I actually made 12 with 4 different flavors and am anxious to be able to try them in the am. Just grab and go!

    The quickest and easiest way for my children to get a good breakfast is in cookie form. you can take a basic cookie recipe and add peanut butter, oatmeal and raisins, with a glass of milk you have something to go and easy.

    I just found this recipe last night and tried it this morning. They taste great!(I don't use stevia or anything like that so I substituted honey as a sweetener.)

    Baked Oatmeal Cupcakes To Go

    (makes 24-25 cupcakes)

    Adapted from: Cookie Dough Baked Oatmeal.

    5 cups rolled oats (400g)
    2 1/2 cups over-ripe mashed banana (For all substitutions, see nutrition link below) measured after mashing (600g)
    1 tsp salt
    5 NuNaturals stevia packets (or omit and use 5 tbsp liquid sweetener of choice–such as pure maple syrup or agave–instead)
    optional: 2/3 cup mini chocolate chips
    2 2/3 cups water (640g) (If using the liquid-sweetener option, scale water back by 1/3 cup.)
    1/4 cup plus 1 tbsp oil (45g) (I really like coconut, but veg oil will also work. For lower-fat substitution notes, see nutrition link below.)
    2 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
    optional add-ins: cinnamon, shredded coconut, chopped walnuts, ground flax or wheat germ, raisins or other dried fruit, etc.

    Preheat oven to 380 F, and line 24-25 cupcake tins. In a large mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients and stir very well. In a separate bowl, combine and stir all wet ingredients (including banana). Mix wet into dry, then pour into the cupcake liners and bake 21 minutes. I also like to then broil for 1-2 minutes, but it’s optional. These oatmeal cakes can be eaten right away, or they can be frozen and reheated for an instant breakfast on a busy day.

    When my kids were growing up, I would make a huge breakfast "pizza-like" casserole on Sunday. Once cooled, I cut it into slices, put the slices in individual zipped baggies, & stored them in the refrigerator.

    Come crazy Monday (or any other day) morning, everyone could grab a baggie, throw the baggie in the microwave for a few seconds if desired, and out the door they went.

    A hot, healthy, satisfying meal with no utensils & no clean-up necessary!

    Breakfast "Pizza" Casserole

    This is just one of many "Breakfast Pizza" creations I've made. Get inventive with your food ~ It's fun!

    6-8 slices Bread, crust removed & buttered on both sides (Save crusts to make homemade croutons, breadcrumbs, etc.)
    1 lb. Sausage, cooked in crumbles & drained
    8-12 Eggs
    1-2 Tbsp. Milk
    Black pepper, to taste
    8-12 oz. Shredded Cheese, your choice

    Preheat oven to 450. Spray a large baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. (I use a 10x15" glass casserole & the larger ingredient amounts listed above. Use smaller amounts listed if using a 9x13" casserole/pan.)

    Layer buttered bread in bottom of dish making sure entire bottom is covered. This will be your "pizza" crust.

    Sprinkle sausage over bread.

    In a medium bowl, beat eggs, milk, & pepper together. Pour over sausage.

    Cover casserole with aluminum foil & bake approximately 30-45 minutes, or until eggs are well done.

    Sprinkle cheese over casserole & return to oven. Continue cooking until cheese is melted & bubbly.

    If serving immediately, let casserole cool 10 minutes before cutting.
    If preparing for the week, let casserole cool completely before cutting, packaging, & storing.

    My new favorite thing to do is make a potato crusted frittata on sunday and slice it up to reheat in the mornings.

    2 russet potatoes diced. (boil for 10 min and drain)

    4 eggs. 1/4 c milk (mix together
    peppers,onions, broccoli, garlic, mushrooms, or whatever vegitable you have on hand
    shredded cheddar cheese

    in a cast iron skillet fry potatoes in 1 tblsp olive oil. Once crisp, use a potato masher to gently press into the pan to make a crust.

    in another skillet sauté vegetables till soft, add egg mixture and cook for a couple of minutes. Pour on top of potato crusted skillet. top with cheese and put in 350 degree oven for about 15 minutes till egg is cooked through.

    I wrap slices in foil then put in toaster oven while I get read for work. If I have time I'll eat at home if not it's ready to go and I can eat in the car on the way to work.
