Let’s be real, mornings can be rough. Sometimes waking up on time and getting out the door is a struggle in itself, let alone figuring out what is for breakfast. But breakfast can be a breeze with a little planning (especially if you are not much of a morning person) and preparing a recipe that can easily be reheated throughout the week-or frozen for up to 3 months! Here’s a roundup of our favorite make-ahead meals:
Muffins are a tasty and portable grab-and-go breakfast option. Banana nut, blueberry lemon, pumpkin cranberry…the flavor possibilities are endless. Make a dozen and you have muffins for days. Pair with a milk carton single and a piece of fruit and you’re out the door. Try these Maple-Sweetened Banana Muffins.
If you like savory breakfasts, try these Freezer-Friendly Breakfast Burritos. Prepare the filling-eggs, potatoes or rice, leftover veggies, cheese, bacon or sausage and assemble in a large flour tortilla for a complete meal. Follow the instructions for freezing and reheat for a warm breakfast.
You’ve probably had oatmeal before, but have you tried baked oatmeal? The consistency of this Apple Cherry Baked Oatmeal is a cross between a chewy granola bar and bread pudding. Serve with yogurt (or eat like cereal with milk) with fruit and nuts for a complete meal.
