Frugal Breakfast Ideas
It is the first meal we eat when we get up in the morning. After a long night of sleep, we can’t do without it if we want to get our bodies going.
No, I’m not talking about coffee. I’m referring to breakfast. Here are some ideas for breakfast that don’t require a drive-thru window.
1. Have a piece of casserole.
It takes time to cook eggs and bacon for breakfast. No one wants to ruin their clothes with the mess it can create.
On Sunday night, get breakfast done early. Put together a casserole using your favorite ingredients.
Fewer eggs are needed in a casserole than when frying or scrambling them for breakfast each morning.
Depending on the size of your family, the casserole may last two to three mornings.
Yogurt is a healthy and economical breakfast choice. When you are eating on the run, grab a container of yogurt and some dried or fresh fruit.
Cutting up fruit on top of the yogurt adds carbohydrates to fuel you for the morning in addition to the calcium and protein in the yogurt itself.
3. Breakfast shake.
This is even quicker and can be ingested while driving without taking your eyes off the road or both hands off the wheel.
Put together some frozen fruit favorites, ice cubes, frozen yogurt, and unsweetened juice in a blender. Pour into Styrofoam cups to keep it cold.
Everyone can grab a cup on the way out the door. The nutritional effect is about the same as yogurt, but without the spoon.
4. Pigs in a blanket.
This is the homemade version. Whip up a batch of pancakes and freeze them in short stacks of three.
A package or two of frozen link sausage is needed to create this quick and economical meal idea.
Thaw out a stack of pancakes. Heat up three sausages in the microwave. Wrap a pancake around each sausage. Voila! You’ve got an instant pig in a blanket.
Eat it as you watch the last of your favorite morning show or as you walk to the bus stop. It can be eaten in the car without too much fuss or mess.
For a sweeter taste and less mess, add a little maple syrup or honey to the batter when making the pancakes.
5. Breakfast sandwiches.
In the evening, while you are getting things ready for the next day, grill up a few breakfast sandwiches.
Choose whatever you like: turkey slices, ham slices, cheese, tomato, bacon, etc. When the sandwich cools, cut it into bite size pieces and put it in a container.
In the morning, just grab a container; pop it into the microwave for fifteen or twenty seconds and breakfast is served.
These breakfast ideas are time saving and money-saving too. They make use of items you buy normally and also whatever you have around the house to create delicious fare for a morning rush.
No more excuses for skipping breakfast or swinging into the fast food restaurant every morning.
