Looking for some breakfast ideas to make and eat as a family? Whether you want a quick and simple weekday dish or something more suitable to a leisurely Sunday morning, we’ve got you covered.
Freeze-Ahead Breakfast Sandwiches
We love good breakfast sandwiches, especially ones you can make in batches and freeze for the future. These sandwiches are so quick to put together – just store in a freezer-weight resealable plastic bag in the freezer. When you’re ready to eat, simply add 1 Kraft Singles to the filling in each sandwich and microwave until hot and steamy!
Peanut Butter Steel-Cut Oatmeal Breakfast Bowls
Looking for a balanced breakfast idea to start your day? These hearty bowls taste as good as they look. Nutty whole grain oats form the base, and a garnish of yogurt, fruit, nuts and seeds takes them over the top.
Ham & Cheese Breakfast Mini Quiches
The best thing about these cute little quiches is that they don’t call for fussy pastry dough. Simple whole wheat bread slices take the place of more traditional crusts in these mini hand-held pies. Want to make them ahead? Just bake as directed, cool completely and store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days, or in the freezer for up to 2 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator and reheat in a 350°F oven for about 10 minutes or until heated through.
Pancakes were practically made for family fun. No wonder this recipe is one of our most popular! Want to make these pancakes ahead? Just prepare as directed, then cool completely on a wire rack. Layer between sheets of waxed paper in a freezer-weight resealable plastic bag and store in the freezer. Reheat by placing frozen pancakes directly into the toaster.
Broccoli and Cheddar Quiche
Looking to make something special for the weekend? Nothing says brunch quite like a cheesy quiche. This pantry- and freezer-friendly breakfast dish is especially delicious served with your favourite breakfast potatoes or toast, a quick salad and/or a medley of fresh fruit.
Peanut Butter Muffins
These muffins aren’t just a good breakfast option – they also make a yummy daytime snack. If you won’t be eating them right away, cool completely on a wire rack. Transfer to a freezer-weight resealable plastic bag and freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw for a couple of hours at room temperature and rewarm in a 300°F oven for 5 to 7 minutes, if desired.
Whether you grew up calling this dish “Toad-in-the-Hole,” “Egg-in-a-Hole,” “Egg-in-a-Basket” or some other variation of the above, this classic dish never gets old. Make it to enjoy as a family on a lazy morning – and skip the frying by using this easy baked method!
MIRACLE WHIP “Take-Five” Banana Bread
What could be better than warm banana bread at breakfast time? A banana bread recipe that only requires 5 ingredients, that’s what! Overripe bananas will never go to waste again once you try this pantry-friendly quick bread. It tastes great on day one, but it’s actually better the next day. Need longer storage? It freezes well, too. Just bake as directed and cool completely. Wrap the whole loaf (or just the uneaten part) in plastic wrap, then place in a freezer-weight resealable plastic bag and freeze for up to 3 months.
Fresh Berry Brunch Crépes
Crépes are basically pancakes for when you’re feeling fancy. They’re certainly a labour of love, but they’re perfect for when you have a little extra time on your hands. Get the kids involved, since even the littlest helpers can help to stir the batter and roll the crépes. Experiment with the filling, depending on what you have on hand!
Bacon, Egg and Cheese Hash Brown Waffles
Love waffles, but lean more savoury than sweet? This one’s for you! No shredded hash browns on hand? Fresh potatoes make a simple substitute. Just grate raw, peeled Russet or Yukon Gold potatoes, rinse in a colander and pat dry before using.
Rise ‘n Shine French Toast
French toast has all the appeal of pancakes and waffles, but without all the work. It’s a fantastic dish for using up day-old (or… let’s face it, 2- or 3-day-old) bread! Top the toast with whatever fresh or frozen fruit you have on hand.
Dutch Baby Pancake
Don’t want to stand at the stove making pancakes? Dutch Baby Pancake to the rescue! All of the batter is poured into one pan, so you can actually walk away while it bakes. Just wait for the “oohs” and “aahs” when you pull this puffy masterpiece out of the oven. Finish with a sweet fruit and cream cheese filling, and your family will be singing your praises.
