Ideas For Make-Ahead Hot Breakfasts

February is Hot Breakfast Month and what could be better than a warm meal on chilly mornings? A hot breakfast does more than just warm your belly! The right combination of foods can boost your metabolism, fuel your brain and give your mind and body the energy it needs to start each day feeling powerful and positive.

Sound like hyperbole? Not if you can include some of the 15 best breakfast foods, according to Forkly. Take your pick from among these mouth-watering porridges, egg, scones and pancakes that are likely to please every palate – from sweet to savory.

And the best part? You can make them lots of them the night, week or month before!

Hot Breakfast Cereal

Nothing beats a bowl of warm cereal to start off a cool morning and the Food Network’s Katie Boyle, R.D., offers up three different varieties. Choose from steel cut oats, quinoa or millet and bulgar with dried cranberries, apples and fresh berries. And you know what the health gurus say about grains: complex carbs and high amounts of fiber can help cleanse your body and keep you awake and raring to go!

Freezer-Friendly Breakfasts

You will love pulling this make-ahead sandwich out of your freezer this week it will also totally change the way you think about egg whites. Herbed egg whites with feta cheese on an English muffin pack plenty of flavor with basil, chives and the salty, tangy taste of pickled curd cheese!

Let’s Dish blogger Danelle is all about making breakfast easy. Her make-ahead quiche with ham, Monterey and cheddar cheese, bakes beautifully and freezes for a read-to-go breakfast or brunch.

Or you can follow the Genius Kitchen leader and make quiche in a bag with your choice of veggies and meat, eggs, milk, cheese, flour, baking powder and tabasco. You do have to completely thaw the quiche mix (which you could do in the fridge the night before) before baking in a deep-dish pie plate or quiche pan, but it still knocks off some prep time for breakfast!

For a grab-and-go breakfast you can make the night or week before, check out these potato, chorizo and egg burritos. You’ll be glad you did – and so will everybody else heading out the front door!

Make-Ahead Egg Breakfasts

If you like potato pancakes, (and let’s face it, who doesn’t?) you’ll like these savory veggie pancakes, made colorful by adding zucchini, carrots, green onions and served with butter, sour cream or even a savory jam or chutney.

You’ll have trouble choosing from the varieties of scones from Bon Appétit: Lemon-Rosemary, Cinnamon-Chocolate, Double Ginger, Mixed Berry and Pecan-Oat. Some people say there’s a right way and a wrong way to eat scones, but with these yummy breakfast treats – who cares about right and wrong?

This eggs benedict casserole from Cooking Classy  is easy to make ahead and perfect for breakfast for overnight house guests. With all the usual suspects plus a generous helping of hollandaise sauce, this is a true kitchen-tested recipe. Be sure to check out the reviews for add-ins from the fans – like asparagus and tomatoes – but close your eyes at the fat grams!
