It’s that time of year again – fall is just around the corner, and school has started up. Our mornings get crazy, so it’s good to have some easy to grab, easy to make breakfasts besides cereal, cereal, scrambled eggs, and more cereal. Here are a few of my favorite breakfast ideas for you (I’ll also be posting new recipes this week and in upcoming weeks!!):

1. How about some soft, sweet pineapple zucchini quick bread and a cuppa tea to start your morning?

Pineapple Cream Cheese Zucchini Bread: Make it on the weekend and eat it all week, or pop this baby into your slow cooker overnight on low heat and you’ll have fresh, warm zucchini bread waiting for you when you wake up!

2. Hot, fresh Sausage Biscuits…one minute in the microwave. YUM.

Make up a bunch of sausage biscuits and wrap them tightly and freeze. Reheat one minute in the microwave for a very quick, very satisfying breakfast.

3. Ever heard of a Walking Taco? Well – how about a walking breakfast??

Walking Breakfast

A complete breakfast in a cute little package – eggs, cheese, meat. Pop into the microwave for a minute and you’re off!

4. How about an apple coffee cake you can ‘bake’ in one minute?

Apple Coffee Cake For One

I always keep yellow cake mix and applesauce on hand to whip this up – it’s equally good without the crumb topping (then it’s just a muffin!) – mix it up by using canned pumpkin or grated zucchini, or mashed banana. YUM

6. One of my favorite before school childhood breakfasts was knothole eggs!

Knothole eggs-1

You can make this with any of the breads in our recipe archive or get really really easy and use a good commercial loaf, like Canyon Bakehouse.

7. I love to bake EVERYTHING in my slow cooker. Particularly this baked french toast.


Any time a recipe calls for baking something at 350, I find I can slow cook it on low for 8-10 hours in a 5quart slow cooker and still get the yummy, crusty edges I like. I throw this in the slow cooker, and get hot french toast for breakfast.

8. If you’ve got time on the weekend, make up a pan of this fruited crumb cake. Wrap it in individual servings and grab them to take with you all week.

Rhubarb Crumb Coffee Cake

Made ahead and eaten all week (if it lasts that long), this is a great way to get your fresh fruit in as part of a grab and go breakfast.

9. You can premake ‘eggo’ style waffles with our Better Batter Pancake Mix, or use our Bisquick Clone Master Mix

Make sure you cook these on the light setting, so that you can pop them in the toaster from frozen later. I place about a dozen waffles in a gallon freezer and toast them whenever I want a quick “eggo”

10. Nothing like gluten free Pop Tarts to make your day – our recipe is vegan, too!!
