Homeschooling your kids frees up a lot of time, but it’s not uncommon to still find yourself rushing in the morning to get ready for the day. When this happens, breakfast is often the first thing that gets pushed to the side. But a filling breakfast is important in order to fuel your child’s morning and keep them from getting hungry and cranky by 10 a.m. These breakfasts can be prepared ahead of time for an easy morning meal that your kiddos will love.
These don’t take long to make fresh, but they can also be prepared ahead of time and frozen before you need to eat them. They’re super simple and great for kids who have issues with strong spices or various textures. Make a simple omelet in a pan without folding it in half so that you have a large egg patty that fits perfectly in a tortilla. Add the egg to one flour tortilla and top with cheese and spinach before rolling the whole thing up.
This recipe is also great for sneaking in some veggies to your kid’s breakfast without them tasting it between all that cheese. Add a slice of turkey breast for some more protein and flavor.
Overnight oats are super easy to make and totally customizable to meet your child’s preferences. Simply add one cup of oats to a jar or bowl and stir in one cup of milk. Add whatever else you want: yogurt, chia seeds, almonds, berries, chocolate chips, etc. When your creation is finished, cover and stick your oats in the refrigerator for several hours or overnight. In the morning, all you need to do is pull the oats out and your family can enjoy them right away.
Freezer Breakfast Sandwiches
Fast-food breakfast sandwiches have their place, but homemade ones are hard to beat. These sandwiches will be a hit with your entire family and are super easy to make. Simply stack one half of an English muffin with a cooked egg, a slice of cheese, and a piece of sausage of Candian bacon. Top with the other English muffin slice and stick the sandwiches in the freezer. When you’re ready to eat them, warm each sandwich in the microwave for about 30 seconds or until it is fully thawed.
