Crunched for time in the morning? Try these some of these 60 quick breakfast ideas!
Some mornings (OK, most mornings if you’re in my home) you need a quick breakfast. There’s just not much time to prepare a big meal, especially when you need to rush out the door.
Just because you’re crunched for time, though, you shouldn’t have to sacrifice a healthy start to your day.
One rule of thumb to use is to plan and prepare your breakfasts ahead of time:
- If you want to make pancakes or waffles for your family, mix the batter ahead of time and then store it in the fridge until you use it.
- Make pancakes, waffles, casseroles and quiches ahead of time and reheat in the morning. You can also make muffins and breakfast cookies ahead of time.
- Combine your oatmeal ingredients the night before and heat all night in your Crock-Pot.
- Using freezer cooking to help with breakfasts is an excellent way to save time – simply prepare and freeze your food ahead of time, then warm up while you’re getting ready for your day.
To help with your breakfast preparation, I’ve gathered 60 nutritious but quick breakfast ideas to help you feed your family and get on with your day.
