    Default breakfast ideas for kids

    With back to school time starting, what are some breakfast ideas? Especially for those busy mornings.

    Last week I stole YankeeMom (Heather's) Sausage, cheese and egg biscuit recipe. I swappped bacon for the sausage, made a bunch and froze them. The kids and DH loved them. One minute in the microwave and they were ready to go.

    I also make pancakes ahead of time. I put two in a zippy bag with a piece of pre-cooked sausage. They just zap them in the microwave and there is a quick and yummy breakfast.

    If they like I will also make egg sandwiches fresh in the morning. Nothing to those, only takes about five minutes.

    My kids love oatmeal or hot rice with cinnamon and sugar.

    I admit I buy Quaker Oatmeal Bars. On sale w/ coupons or at BJ's. I keep them on hand for something quick. BUT I do have quick oats, we add our own additions and microwave. I make pancakes over the weekend and we eat the left overs during the weekday. Homemade muffins and scones are good. So are quickbreads. Add some fruit and a glass of milk to any of these and it's a pretty balanced breakfast. Homemade items are good because you can kind of control the sugar and fat.

    Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies

    2/3 c sugar
    2/3 c packed brown sugar
    1/4 c butter or stick margarine, softened
    3/4 c applesauce
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    2 eggs
    3 cups quick cooking or old fashioned oats
    1/2 cup all-purpose flour*
    1/2 cup whole wheat flour
    1 cup raisins, chopped dried fruit, nuts, or chocolate chips

    1. Preheat oven to 375.

    2. Beat all ingredients except oats, flour and raisins in a large bowl. Gradually add in oats, flour, and raisins

    3. You can either bake these as cookies or bars. For cookies, drop rounded tablespoonfuls onto cookie sheet. For bars, lightly grease an 8×8x2 inch pan and evenly spread dough in pan.

    4. For cookies, bake 9-11 minutes or until light brown. Immediately remove from pan and cool on a wire rack. For bars, bake 25 minutes or until light brown. Cool in pan on wire rack. Once cool, cut into bars.

    When my kids were young and we had those crazy hectic out the door in a hurry kind of mornings, I always kept some homemade breakfast burritos in the freezer. It was a breeze to make them up and just rolled them up and popped them in the freezer and viola easy peasy breakfast . I also kept muffins frozen for breakfast. Our microwave got the most use at breakfast time .

    --Muffins
    --Cereal (hot or cold)
    --Biscuits with various kinds of protein (egg, sausage, ham, etc.)
    --Grits with/without cheese
    --Homemade coffee cake so the amount of fats, sugars, etc. can be controlled
    --Banana bread
    --Bagels
    --Pancakes or waffles
    --Peanut butter toast
    --Cheese toast

    Remember that kids need some protein in the morning so their brains will work properly.

    When I make pancakes for dinner (dd's fav.), I make extra and wrap them up singly. Then in the morning I just pop one into the toaster to warm up.
