9 On the Go Breakfast Ideas for Kids
Sausage balls are possibly my favorite food. Leftover sausage balls heated for breakfast come in a close second. These sausage ball muffins were a no-brainer.
Make a ton of pancakes using all the apples in your house that are being ignored because they’re “too bruisy” or starting to go soft. Add a dash of cinnamon, freeze in a gallon ziploc bag and pop a couple in the toaster each morning! If you want to get real crazy, slather a dollop of peanut butter between two of them and eat like a sandwich. Breakfast done.
These are super good for you and also super yummy. They are coincidentally super filling – so much so that you won’t realize it’s lunchtime because you’re still full.
Homemade Egg McMuffin Breakfast Sandwich.
I keep a pack of english muffins, eggs, cheese and some turkey bacon in the fridge and 5 minutes before my kids walk out the door, I pop all those ingredients into THIS baby. It is magical and wonderful and I have no regrets for spending my birthday money on it. (That should tell you something)
This is great for any time you have leftover ham (perfect for after the holidays) or when you find a ham steak on clearance!
Stole this incredibly-good recipe from my mom – along with the tip that those cheap bags of too-ripe bananas are one of the best investments in your breakfast menu you’ll ever make.
Peanut Butter Waffle Tacos
Toast a frozen waffle, slather with peanut butter, fold into a taco form. (It’s now a…. Taffle? Waco?)
For banana-lovers, fill with bananas. Too hot to handle? Use a coffee filter as a waffle sleeve. (Don’t worry, we have lots of other
weird creative uses for coffee filters HERE!)
We actually have TWO different versions of this casserole! The one shown above is Kasey’s recipe and is totally delicious and extra-special for holidays. This recipe is mine and a) has fewer ingredients and b) is a little more firm and quiche-like, which is what you’re looking for as you sprint out the door.
Whip this up on Sunday night, and toss it in the oven while everyone’s getting ready. Who said you can’t eat like it’s Christmas morning every morning?
Serve a square of this firm casserole on a piece of toast, for a casserole that can go right out the door to the bus stop!
Go-Gurt and Cereal Bar
Stock up on gogurts and Nutri-Grain bars for a good balance of protein and dairy. It’s not homemade – but noone said you have to pull off homemade every day!
