Breakfast ideas

Postby MrsChad » Thu Apr 18, 2013 9:57 pm

We are in a total breakfast rut. It seems like every morning is either pancakes with fruit, a green smoothie or yogurt. What do you feed your LOs in the morning and what do you eat for breakfast? I am finding that I am starving before lunch time rolls around.

Eleanor loves eggs! Any type of omelette makes her happy. We've been doing a lot of oatmeal lately, too.
I like to picture Jesus in a tuxedo t-shirt. It says, "I want to be formal but I'm here to party."

We do very similar things each morning, but lately I have been enjoying these muffins- no sugar, flour, oil, butter...and I use raisins instead of chocolate chips.

We also do a snack about 10/10:30, I always need a snack of some sort to make it to lunch.

I just tried Sara's recipe for baked oatmeal (posted in the Breakfast forum). It was delicious! And filling!

I get in ruts for Audrey food, too. :(

During the week I eat breakfast at my desk, and I eat a packet of apples and cinnamon oatmeal {Rachael Ray's is the "cleanest" I've found}, a banana, and a sprinkling of dried cranberries. Audrey usually has Greek yogurt or cottage cheese for breakfast. Sometimes I add fresh fruit, or this week we had extra pancakes that I also sent. One day she had six ounces of milk, 1/2 cup cottage cheese, and two pancakes!! :shock:

On the weekends, we tend to make scrambled eggs and bacon, and usually add in toast with jelly or whole wheat pancakes. Last weekend I added cinnamon and a pear that was on it's last leg. In the fall, I love to add a little pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice. Really, you can add anything to a pancake! I freeze any extras.

At home we'll also make steel cut oats. Yum, yum! I still like to add my banana and cranberries, but will also sometimes add honey and cinnamon, too.

Ooooh...mmmm...I was just thinking I haven't made this in a while and need to make it myself! The pumpkin one is really good too...not sure if I posted that one. And I love this apple cinnamon one too - it's especially yummy but takes a bit more prep time for soaking the steel cut oats. These are really handy to have around for easy/quick/filling breakfasts!

I used to make these breakfast cookies quite a bit and they're good/filling. You'd have to use gluten free flour since I know you're doing gluten free but I think it'd be a good recipe to try that with...they're pretty dense anyway. Oh, and I never used carrot baby food like it called for because it seemed silly to buy that. I just used canned pumpkin.

I've been wanting to try breakfast quinoa for a while but just haven't gotten around to it.

I've had this breakfast bake recipe saved for a while but not sure what you could replace the shredded wheat with for gluten free.

Now I think I'm in the mood to make something yummy for breakfast this weekend! :)

I still get the Parenting magazine and they had a quick and easy recipe for a Quiche. I've never made them before but I think I'm going to try since it does seem so easy!

Well, I couldn't find the recipe online from Parenting.com so this weekend I'll get the recipe and post it on here. I know it was eggs (obviously) half and half and then they had different "add-ins" like cheddar and broccoli, or spinach, onion and sausage....

Eta: Okay, I have the recipe!

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl, whisk 4 eggs, 2 cups of half-&-half, a pinch of salt and pepper. Add fillings then divide the mixture evenly in a greased muffin tin (or use baking cups). Bake for 20mins, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Add ins-1) steamed broccoli, cheese, and cooked brown rice. 2) thawed hash browns, diced ham, cheese. 3) diced cooked potatoes, cheese. 4) peas, diced ham, cheese. 5) cooked bacon/ sausage, corn, sauted onion, and spinach.

I'm sure you can add whatever your want but those were the listed add-ins.

The website undressedskeleton.com (don't let the name freak you out! :)) has TONS of breakfast and healthy pancake recipes.

My go to breakfast lately has been pumpkin pancakes:
2 egg whites
1/3 cup oatmeal
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tbls pumpkin puree
3-4 tsp milk

Blend it up and makes a good amount of pancakes for one serving, I usually make 8 "mini" ones. Healthy and yummy! My husband got up to make these for me last weekend, and they totally tasted off and were super thin - he put in 3-4 CUPS of milk instead of tablespoons. LOL

I like to make Mini Vegetable Frittatas & Baked Oatmeal. I make both in my mini muffin tin, because I can get Liam to eat it easier if it's mini ;). Plus they are both very easily customized to use whatever you have on hand. I also like to make a breakfast pizza sometimes on the weekend. I usually just do crescent rolls rolled out in a single layer as the crust, and then add some whisked eggs & milk, cheese, some sort of protein, and some spices. Easy!

Great ideas! I'm thinking I need to make a few different items and get them put into the freezer.

Charlotte is gluten free, but DH and I aren't (unless she is around hehe). I may have to make those with her crazy expensive flour and then some for me as well. :)

Besides what's been mentioned, in our rotation is french toast sticks, dipped in honey, egg in a hole, granola and greek yogurt, fruit salad with nuts, Morning Star sausage, hard boiled egg and cheese slices, cereal, homemade pop tarts, and bacon, egg and cheese biscuits.

I just made Spaghetti Squash Hash Browns two weekends ago and they were great.

This Ham-Asparagus and Cheese Strata is really great, too.
