Breakfast Ideas

Hi, I'm looking for new ideas for breakfast. I'm tired of the traditional breakfast menu and so I usually end up sacrificing my breakfast time at home for a few minutes of extra sleep and then end up buying fast food breakfast. Also, since I work fulltime and go to school I'm also looking for prepare-ahead breakfast ideas (if anyone has any). All suggestions are welcomed!

You can also try a breakfast smoothie:
Here's one I had today:

Blenderize:
1 banana
milk (start with about 8 oz, add more if it's too thick later on)
then add:
1/4 c. milk & egg protein powder (this is my fav, but you can use soy too)
Blend well
Then, throw in 6 frozen strawberries (I buy them frozen)
Blend again.
Ta da!

Another thought - hard boil some eggs and have them handy in the fridge. Eat one with a bagel and some juice and you'll be set till lunch!

If you haven't already...invest 20 dollars into a small electric griddle, with nonstick coating. You can whip up a small batch of pancake batter, or french toast batter the night before, and make some quick pancakes, french toast, or quick eggs and bacon.

Thanks jkath! The blueberry french toast sounds delicious. The hard boiled eggs is a really convenient idea, and I love bagels. Mmm...the smoothie should be great i.e. as soon as I get a blender lol. Thanks a lot!

Actually, Erik, I don't have an electric griddle. However, I think it's going to cost more than $20 here, but it's worth the investment. Thanks for the idea!

Another thought -
my older boy's favorite breakfast is "reheated last night's dinner leftovers"!
His absolute fav is my chicken pie (made with cream cheese). (I know it's been posted here a few times)

One of my favorite quick breakfasts is to precook some sausage patties. Then freeze them to use as needed. Then in the morning I scramble an egg. Fold the scrambled egg over so it will fit on an English muffin or bagel with the thawed sausage patty and a slice of cheese, if desired. Wrap in a paper towel and place in a closeable plastic bag. When you want to eat your breakfast remove from plastic bag and heat for one minute in the microwave. Instant breakfast and you can even assemble it the night before and store in the fridge until ready to eat.

Thanks again Jkath. However, I usually take leftovers for lunch

SierraCook thanks for the great idea. I enjoy breakfast sandwiches but just never thought of using patties that can be prepared ahead of time...will try. Thank u.

I guess this might be considered a traditional breakfast menu item, but one of my easiest and quickest (and favorite) breakfast's is oat flakes and milk (or water) thrown in the microwave for 3 minutes, then topped w/ a spoonful of plain yogurt, strawberries or blueberries or banana, walnuts or almonds, and some nutmeg! healthy and very filling!
