Say goodbye to the frozen store bought breakfast, and say hello to homemade deliciousness! This unique take on traditional french toast will ensure you have enough time to feed your little ones the most important meal of the day!  This homemade breakfast is quick, cost efficient, and can be made in bulk and saved for later use!  On a cold morning, grab a cup of coffee, drizzle warm maple syrup over your homemade dish, and start creating memories with your child!

What you’ll need:

  • 8 slices of bread, thick sliced
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/3 cup of sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup of milk
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla

Preheat the oven to 350 °F.  Begin by cutting each slice of bread into three pieces, forming french toast sticks.  In a bowl, combine the butter, eggs, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, and milk; mix well.  Next, dip each bread stick into the egg mix and place on a cookie sheet.  Once all the sticks are on the cookie sheet, drizzle the remaining egg mixture on top of the sticks.  Bake for twelve minutes, turn the sticks and continue baking for another twelve minutes, or until golden on both sides.

Finish by serving warm with some maple syrup or allow to cool and place in a freezer bag for a quick breakfast meal to come!  When you’re ready to eat them, simply place them into the microwave and warm for one minute.

Pizza…for breakfast? Saying those three words to your kids is definitely one strategy for getting your morning off to a good start.  A good breakfast is essential to you and your children’s diet, which is why it’s fun to experiment with different ingredients and recipes. This Breakfast Pizza recipe combines a few of our favorite foods to kick off your morning the right way!

What you’ll need:

  • Pizza dough (homemade or ready-made)
  • Two-three eggs
  • Quarter cup of milk
  • 6 ounces of cheddar cheese
  • 6 ounces of mozzarella cheese
  • 6 ounces of ham (cut into two-inch strips)
  • 3 ounces of crumbled, cooked bacon
  • 5 links of breakfast sausage (diced into chunks)
  • 1 small, diced onion

Instructions:

1. If you’re looking to save time, cooking the meat the night before will cut down on prep.

2. Beat the eggs and milk together then brush the mixture across the pizza base.

3. Add the meat (ham, bacon) and the onion.

4. A dash of seasoning will add an extra bit of spice to the recipe.

5. Finally, sprinkle the bacon on top for more flavor.

Make sure to pre-heat your oven to 400F. Cook the pizza for 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted, then it’s ready to eat!

I don’t think there’s a kid out there that hasn’t had oatmeal as a staple breakfast food. It’s easy, filling, and especially tasty in the cold winter months. Don’t get us wrong, there are a lot of boring and bland oatmeal recipes out there, so experiment with different flavors and add-ins to see what you and your family likes best.

This recipe is a baked oatmeal recipe so it will make a lot at once. This the perfect recipe to make at the beginning of the week and then store in your fridge.

Your ingredients should include:

  • 2 cups of oatmeal
  • an Apple (if the Apple is small used two)
  • 2 cups of the mixed or your favorite berries
  • half a cup of pecans, walnuts, or your favorite nuts
  • 1/2 cup nonfat yogurt, preferably vanilla
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup, for a little flavor
  • an egg and one egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (sea salt or kosher salt goes wonderfully in this dish)
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract (imitation is okay, the careful of the alcohol content)
  • 1 cup of milk (for less calories used 2% or 1% reduced fat milk)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

First preheat your oven to 375°F. Take out a 9 inch pie pan and either spray it with oil, or use coconut oil on a non-stick pan.

In the meantime mix together all of your dry ingredients. The salt, baking powder, oatmeal, nuts, Apple(s), and berries in a large sized bowl. Then add in the egg and egg yolk, milk, vanilla, syrup, and yogurt. Make sure it is mixed well. Pour into your well oiled pie pan and slide into the oven. Bake until golden brown, approximately 50 min. Serve warm or cold. For a garnish you can use a sprig of mint, a dollop of yogurt, or some fresh berries.
