For our third and final post in our Sunday Series, we have compiled some breakfast ideas, as well as a couple of recipes that might help simplify Sunday breakfasts. These are all ideas that can be made ahead of time so that come Sunday morning, you have to spend very little time actually making breakfast.
Frozen pancakes or waffles.
Coffee cake (Pretty much any coffee cake recipe can be mixed up the night before and then baked in the morning.)
Cinnamon rolls (These can also be made the night before, refrigerated, and then baked fresh in the morning!)
- ⅓ cup oil
- ⅓ cup regular or brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 cups oatmeal
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- Nuts or berries, optional
Mix all ingredients together and place in a greased 9-inch x9-inch baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Serve with milk (like regular cereal.)
This can also be mixed up the night before and then just baked in the morning.
Overnight Bran Muffins
- 1 ½ cups Raisin Bran cereal
- ½ cup flour
- ½ cup brown sugar
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- ¾ cup milk
- ¼ cup oil
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 egg
Mix all together and let sit overnight. In the morning, fill muffin tins ½ full and bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Makes about 1 dozen.
Freezer Breakfast burritos
- Make any combination of egg/cheese/hashbrown/meat filling. Place the filling in the burritos. Fold up the burritos and wrap up individually with foil. Freeze.
- To serve, simply remove the foil and pop the frozen burrito in the microwave and heat for 1-2 minutes, or until the burrito is heated through.
Cold Cereal/Pop-Tarts/Instant Oatmeal
