    Default Easy breakfasts for kids?

    My girls are so tired of our regular breakfast routine. I need something new and exciting.

    Here is our normal list:
    Fried egg sandwich (fried egg, melted cheese on top, served on toast)
    scrambled eggs (not often)
    cold cereal
    smoothies
    hot pretzels
    Peanut butter & banana sandwiches
    (left overs depending on what it is)

    What is served in your home that is a big hit?

    My kids love oatmeal. I cook it on the stove and they like to have it with either brown sugar and maple syrup, or applesauce and cinnamon. It only takes a couple of minutes to put together.

    When I get motivated I make up big batches of spice muffins, or pumpkin bread (baked in muffin tins), or some other type of muffin - then freeze them. 30-45secs in the microwave heats them up nicely for a quick breakfast on the go.

    Homemade pancakes and waffles

    I normally make....
    ~boiled eggs (no one eats the yolk - that goes to the dogs)and sausage
    ~homemade sausage, egg and cheese biscuits (thanks to YankeeMom for the recipe)
    ~scrambled eggs and sausage patties with toast
    ~English muffins with ham and egg
    ~homemeade pancakes and sausage(only once a week if that often - I don't like for them to start the day on a sugar high. Even with low sugar syrup there is still too many sugar/carbs in that meal for my kids and DH)
    ~grits, eggs and ham
    ~croissants with egg, sausage and cheese
    ~sometimes DS will have a couple of navel oranges and a bowl of grits - he LOVES navel oranges
    ~bagels with almond flavored cream cheese for DD sometimes

    I'm a kid-at-heart; does that count? Here's a few suggestions:

    I really like breakfast sandwiches made with fried egg, a cheese slice, a couple pieces of sliced ham (like Buddig meats -- you can get them everyday at Save-A-Lot and Aldi's for like 50 cents a pkg and each pkg makes at least 4 sandwiches) on a lightly toasted bagel. Depending on my mood, I'll either spread the bagel with a thin layer of margarine or mayo/salad dressing, or sometimes I just like them plain. I've never tried freezing them, but I think you could. You could also make them the night before and nuke them the next morning.

    Oatmeal or cream of wheat with a drizzle of maple/pancake syrup. No milk needed.

    Well our usual breakfasts are toast, cereal: weetbix, porridge (made with milk for extra nutrients), cornflakes, rice bubbles, muesli (I like to have mine with yoghurt).
    When I feel like cooking breakfast (which isn't in the week unless it's someones birthday) we will often have bacon and eggs on toast (DS11 minus the toast).
    In Australia we are not into cooked breakfast for everyday (regardless of how nice bacon and eggs would be every morning! lol). I don't know why this is but for most families it's toast and cereal.

    These are some of the things I make for my client:

    - oatmeal or cream of wheat w/ mashed up bananas or s/f jam swirled in
    - ham and cheese on toasted bagel
    - egg, bacon and cheese on whole wheat english muffin
    - plain ol' bagel or english muffin w/ cream cheese or s/f jam
    - french toast
    - small pancakes
    - cold cereal topped w/ sliced banana
    - yogurt and dry cereal
    - breakfast burrito

    She always gets some fresh fruit to go along w/ whatever I made, unless it includes fresh fruit (cereal, etc.)

    We do toast with pb or not, bagels with cream cheese, english muffins with scrambled eggs and cheese like an egg mcmuffin, oatmeal with pb or fruit, cold cereal, birds in a nest (make a hole in a slice of bread then fry an egg in the middle of it), peanut butter and jelly sandwich, banana with pb, and sometimes even leftovers. For dinner I make a big breakfast sometimes with pancakes or waffles but we rarely do that for breakfast.
