Backpacks are packed, pencils are sharpened, and new school clothes are ready to be worn. With the end of Summer comes the end to leisurely morning routines and complicated breakfast entrées.
Now that we’re a few weeks into the school year, time seems to be getting tighter in the morning as we fall into shortened routines.Though time is at a minimum, that doesn’t mean the importance of your children’s breakfast has diminished. Studies have long suggested that breakfast foods high in fiber, rich in whole grains, and containing a high amount of protein can help boost kids’ attention span, concentration, and memory — that sounds like three wins for breakfast to us!
The school bus is rounding the corner, and time is running out, so here are three great ideas to get your morning off to a quick and filling start!
Egg Breakfast Muffins
What could make breakfast easier than preparing it the night before? This unique creation from Hurry The Food Up combines the versatility of muffins, the protein power of an omelette, and the fresh flavors of your favorite veggies for a tasty and quick morning meal. Simply prepare the night before, heat up in the microwave the next morning, and serve with your favorite Uncle Charley’s breakfast sausage on the side for an instant morning classic!
Egg and Sausage Breakfast Casserole
As we’ve previously discussed, Tex Mex is everywhere nowadays, which has us wondering – why not include it on the breakfast table? Most of the preparation of this dish happens in the oven, making it a great option for large families and busy mornings. Simply spend a little time pre-cooking Uncle Charley’s Ground Tex Mex Sausage, sauté a few onions, combine, and bake. Serve immediately, or dice up your leftovers the next morning and create your own breakfast burrito!
Sausage and Cheese Crescent Roll-Ups
If you’re looking for a new and tasty way to coax your pickiest students into eating breakfast, a little finger food can go a long way! These tasty roll-ups are the perfect breakfast to-go and combine hearty sausage with flaky croissants and melted cheese – the trifecta of breakfast perfection. Simply roll your Uncle Charley’s breakfast sausage, bake, and enjoy!
Just because breakfast is the most important meal of the day doesn’t mean it has to be the same from one day to the next. Try these easy-to-make recipes to add a dash of quick flavor to busy school-day mornings. And just remember, the weekend is on its way!
