Back to School Breakfast!

BACK TO SCHOOL BREAKFAST!

Think about the word: Break (the) Fast. Your body needs food after a night's rest. Even if you are not a morning person, you should eat something for breakfast. You may need to try some unconventional breakfast ideas that can be eaten in the car, on the bus, or middle of the morning at break.

Try these ideas for your breakfast on the run:

  • Cereal -- Dry or with milk. Dry cereal can be put in sandwich bags to grab quickly. 
  • Toast or Breads of all kinds -- Wheat, White, Raisin, etc.
  • Biscuits -- Plain or with fillings 
  • Bagels -- Blueberry, Cinnamon, Cinnamon Raisin, Wheat, plain, etc. 
  • Crackers -- any kind, plain or with cheese or peanut butter 
  • Hot Cereals -- instant oatmeal and instant grits (they come in flavors too!) 
  • Pretzels -- avoid the candy coated ones.
  • Fresh fruits -- banana, strawberries, apple, grapes (frozen grapes are great!) 
  • Juices -- Look for the word "juice".

There are lots of fruit beverages and breakfast drinks that have some vitamins & minerals as well as some fruit juice, but they are mostly sugar and water.

Try the juice boxes or small cans. 

  • Milk -- In a small carton or chub bottle. Ready for grabbing. 
  • Sandwiches -- Ham, Ham & Cheese, Cheese & bread only, Peanut Butter, Peanut Butter and Jelly, or with fruit to name just a few. 
  • Leftovers -- There's nothing wrong with a piece of leftover chicken or a bowl of rice left from the day before. Eat it cold or heat it in the microwave. 
  • Waffles -- Use frozen waffles. Toast them and spread with Peanut Butter.

 

The Secret to Breakfast on the Run is to be flexible.

EGG IN A HOLE

  1. 1 egg 1 slice of your favorite bread (I like wheat berry) grated cheese (optional)
  2. Cut a hole in the center of the slice of bread with a biscuit or cookie cutter.
  3. Spray a skillet with non-stick spray.
  4. Place the "holed" bread in the hot skillet. Let begin to toast.
  5. Break egg into a cup and pour into the center of the bread. Let cook until white is no longer clear. Turn over and let top of the egg cook.
  6. If desired, place grated cheese on top for something special. Yolk will be firm and this can be eaten with the fingers on the go.

 

MAKE AHEAD IDEA: PANCAKE ROLLS

  1. Make your favorite pancake batter as usual but slightly thin.
  2. Cook thin pancakes and let cool slightly.
  3. Cook ham strips or sausage links separately.
  4. Place cooked meat on pancake and roll up to make a variation of pigs in a blanket.
  5. Can be frozen once rolled and wrapped in protective freezer wrap.
  6. Place in microwave for 1 to 1½ minutes on high. Ready to eat and go.
  7. Variations: Make the batter using flavored milk such as chocolate or strawberry. Put blueberries or cinnamon & raisins in the batter.
