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!
