  • Breakfast Ideas

    Here's the scoop - hubby NEVER gets up early enough to eat a good breakfast so he eats boxed frozen waffles day in and day out. I buy cereal but he won't eat it. He says he is starved in an hour.

    So, got some quick ideas for breakfast?

    How much time does he have to eat? I use to bake frozen biscuits for my dd the night before, scramble an egg, top with cheese, place on the biscuit, wrap, and refrigerate. The next morning she nuked it. Takes some planning, but she always said it held her until lunch. Cereals were gone in an hour or two.

      Breakfast ideas

      make up a few different kinds of breakfast tortillas (ham, bacon, sausage, eggs, cheese, anything else you like to throw in there) and he can just heat them in the microwave for a few seconds and they're done.

      cut some grand's refrigerator biscuits in half and form each half in the bottom and up the sides of a sprayed muffin tin. Add some ham, bacon or sausage to the bottom, pour some scrambled eggs over the top (add peppers or onions or anything else he likes in an omelette) and put cheese on top and bake until the biscuits are done. About ten minutes. You can fill each tin with different ingredients for a variety throughout the week. Again, just heat in the microwave for a few seconds (I heat these on the defrost setting or the biscuits get too hard). I like these filled with taco meat or sloppy joe mix or chili and topped with cheese too.

      English muffins don't take any longer to toast than a toaster waffle and you can top them with almost anything, butter, cream cheese, peanut butter, jelly, avocado (yum!).

      That's all I can think of off the top of my head...

        Well, you could scramble some eggs for him the night before and put them in a ziplock in the fridge, and get some of that bacon that's already cooked.
        I think the reason he's hungry is because he's just getting carbs.
        Add some protein and I think he'll be happier.
        Or how about, make the breakfast casserole and freeze individual portions.
        He could even have a sandwich if it would hold him over until lunch.
        Nobody says he has to eat breakfast food.

          Breakfast pizza? Edited to add: The Pillsbury Frozen Biscuits, Southern Style are very good, they're tender and don't take that long to cook.

              You can make and freeze a bunch of breakfast burritos. They freeze and nuke nicely too.

                Breakfast burritos are always a hit in this house.

                  My dad bought me one of those new-fangled toaster things for Christmas this year that cooks an egg and breakfast meat on the side of the toaster at the same time it toasts an english muffin. I swore it would be one of the things I would never ever use and it would stay in the box forever. DS pulled it out one day when he was in a hurry, and he uses it EVERY DAY now. He can make a whole "mcmuffin" in about 2 minutes and be out the door. So simple even a man can figure it out.

                    Cool ideas ~ yesterday I bought several boxes of brown & serve sausage, precooked Canadian bacon, hashbrowns and bagels. We will start with this and see where it goes - LOL

                      Wow! I've never heard of it.
                      That is genius!
