Easy Make-Ahead Breakfasts!

Want a little less mayhem in your mornings? Now that kids are back in school and life has you keeping all kinds of balls in the air, doesn’t the idea of a breakfast you can make-ahead appeal to you? It does to us, so we found dozens – that’s right – dozens of A.M. meals that will help you get a head start on the day!

Microwave Breakfast Scramble

Blogger Beth at Budget Bytes uses mason jars to store her scramble combos which she fills with cooked bacon, hash browns, grape tomatoes, chopped spinach, cooked sausage, red bell peppers (the possibilities and combinations are nearly endless), and mozzarella, feta or cheddar cheese. She waits to add the egg until it’s time to microwave and stirs it up in a handled cup at intervals of 15 to 30 seconds to prevent overcooking. Voila, breakfast in a mug!

Fast and Healthy Make-Ahead Breakfast

We hit the motherload with blogger Denise at Sweet Peas and Saffron who put together 21 make-ahead breakfasts you can stash in the freezer and fridge to pull out for a quick and healthy meal. Let’s just say these aren’t your quickie cereal and milk combos WE might be prone to serving in a pinch. Oh no. Denise’s Peach Baked Oatmeal and Egg and Quinoa Breakfast Muffins look and sound good enough to eat for lunch. Or dinner. Or anytime in between.

Farah at The Cooking Jar makes Hash Brown Egg Nests with Avocado head of time in muffin tins. Farah says for fewer calories you can make them without the hash browns, but if you like that crunchy hash brown crust, she has a make ahead breakfast quiche recipe you’re going to love! 

And from Sarah at Whole and Heavenly Oven, these make-ahead Oat Breakfast Cookies with oats, nuts and shredded zucchini, are a texture buff’s delectable dream. May we have seconds?

Choose Your Protein

Bon Appetit gets in on the make-ahead breakfast act with 57 recipes for the adventurous eater, with morning offerings like Chia Pudding with Dried Apples, Barley Porridge with Sausage and Grapes, and Orange-Date Muesli with Coconut and Cacao Nibs 

Not to be outdone are 57 make-ahead breakfasts from a Taste of Home to accommodate both savory and sweet tastes with everything from Wake Up Wonton Cups with eggs and tomatoes baked in wonton wrappers, to Bananas Foster French Toast. Where’s the protein, you ask? It’s in the nuts!

Southern Living’s Asparagus and Goat Cheese mini quiches might be our first choice on a chilly morning, for a flavorful make-ahead breakfast. But it’s hard to turn the page on Sausage Stuffed Honey Buns or Cinnamon-Pecan Breakfast Bread Pudding!
