Jumpstart your day with these easy ideas for weekend breakfasts to make when you’re super busy.
According to the American Society For Nutrition, nearly one in four Americans skip breakfast on any given day. And we get that because mornings can be hectic, especially if you have school age children. So, here’s seven weekend breakfasts that will cover your entire week.
1. Sandwiches For Weekend Breakfasts
For quick access, you can freeze a batch of breakfast sandwiches for the weekend. And they will help you past by the drive-thru window at McDonalds. To get started, bake several eggs in individual muffin tin cups. Then, along with your favorite meat and cheese, tuck them inside toasted English muffins. Wrap tightly in foil and include enough servings for your family into a zip-top bag. After that, all that’s left to do is unwrap, reheat and eat!
2. Make An Awesome Casserole
Casseroles like Blueberry Breakfast Bake is great to create overnight before going to bed. That way it will be chilled and the flavors amplified. Also, the cinnamon custard infuses the bread and berries. Then, when your alarm goes off in the morning, pop it into the oven. When you get out of the shower, you’re less than an hour away from a 5-star meal.
3. Embellish Freezer Waffles For Weekend Breakfasts
If you’re struggling to get your kids to join you at breakfast time, try a dish that everyone can customize. Waffles are great for this purpose. You can buy frozen waffles, fruits, spreads and other toppings. Then, at breakfast, each member can use their favorite toppings for their own unique waffle display.
4. It’s Ok To Eat Dessert For Breakfast
With our Strawberry Banana Yogurt Parfait, it’s like having a banana split for breakfast. And you don’t even have to peel the bananas or buy the yogurt yourself. You can order this parfait online for your weekend breakfasts.
5. Use Your Last Night’s Leftovers
Not only does using leftovers cut down on food waste, but you can create something totally new. You can use your leftover ingredients and make delicious mini frittatas for breakfast. If meat wasn’t served last night, add bacon for a savory flavorful punch.
6. Create Freezer Smoothies For A Quick Fix
Portion off the below green smoothie ingredients into individual bags and freeze for a hectic morning:
- 1 1/2 cup unsweetened nondairy beverage, such as almond, rice or soy
- 4 pitted dates or 2 dried apricots
- 1 banana, cut into pieces and frozen
- 1 cup chopped kale leaves
- 1 cup baby spinach leaves
- 1/2 cup fresh or frozen berries
In the morning, dump a serving per batch into the blender. Then, top off with milk or soy and blend.
7. Use A Slow Cooker To Get Breakfast Started
Most people don’t don’t think about using a slow cooker for their breakfast dishes. However, a slow cooker can help get breakfast on the table while you get your beauty rest. For examples, the Denver omelet can be cooked to perfection overnight and ready for breakfast next morning.
