A collage of several easy breakfast ideas.

We Love Easy Breakfasts!

Breakfast is one of my favorite meals of the day! Breakfast foods in general are.

Whether you eat breakfast in the morning or have breakfast for dinner (AKA “brinner”), I’ve put together a list of my favorite easy breakfast recipes.

Here is why we love them:

  • QUICK. Most of these recipes are quick or can be prepped beforehand which is nice for busy mornings.
  • VERSATILE. So many of these breakfast foods can be changed up and modified to your liking and preferred flavor based on preference.
  • JUMP START. When things get crazy, it can be easy to skip breakfast but since these recipes are quick and easy, there’s time to make them giving that morning jump start.

Tips for Making Breakfast Easier

There are a few practices that you can implement to help in serving healthier breakfasts and they all tie back to one thing – a menu plan.

  • Menu plan. I like to have a master list of our favorite breakfasts. I factor in how much time I have in the morning, how much time the different recipes take to make, and if a recipe can be made ahead of time.
  • Go shopping so that you have ALL the ingredients you’ll need for the week.
  • Assemble overnight casseroles and refrigerate. Simply pop them in the oven while you’re getting ready.
  • Double up. We may not like eating the same breakfast each day, but we don’t mind eating the same thing 2-3 different times a week.
  • Cut any fruit the night before and keep it in the fridge.

Kid-Friendly Breakfasts

With a little bit of initial effort, teach your kids how to make a healthy, easy breakfast all on their own. Here are some tips to do this:

Choose recipes that only need a few ingredients and only have a few steps.

  • Scrambled Eggs, Breakfast Smoothies, Yogurt Parfait, instant oatmeal, overnight oats, avocado toast, greek yogurt with granola (or chia seeds), breakfast cookies, breakfast quesadillas and toast are all easy meals kids can learn to prepare on their own.

Have pre-made meals in the freezer so that all they have to do is microwave them or put them in a toaster oven. Some favorite recipes include Breakfast Burritos, Buttermilk Waffles, Pancakes, Homemade Cinnamon Rolls, and Breakfast Sandwiches.

You know your kids. One child may be capable of using the stove at 8 years old while another may not be ready until they are 10. Make a list for each child with ideas that they have been taught and are allowed to make on their own.

    I always double or triple this and wrap the extras with plastic wrap and store them in the freezer. They reheat well for an easy quick breakfast. (Perfect for my teens who leave for school at 6:00am)
