We may not be trapped at home with feet of snow, though part of me really wishes we were, yet it is still winter and the perfect time for warm breakfast foods.
With a lot of changes to our routines coming up, again, I am looking for some quick yet easy things to add to our breakfast rotation on weekdays. While I could literally eat the same thing for breakfast every day, my kids finally revolted.
Mom, enough. Can we please have something else?
My kids tend to be carb lovers, yet burn enough calories to need protein with their meals. Especially with breakfast. I have chosen to find new recipes that hopefully lean toward more protein than carbs.
My boys can eat more than me, if they decide they actually like their food. Actually, they could almost out eat me when they were only 3 or 4, and I am not exactly a light eater. They are not necessarily picky eaters, but more along the lines of “we finally have a enough to eat that we can have foods we prefer to eat.” And that is why I am wanting to put dwarf fruit trees in my next garden/yard, along with vegetables and root vegetables.
Having these on hand allows me to plan for some of the more expensive or not-normally-on-our-shopping-list items. I doubt these can be made for $0.50 a person, which is where I like to keep most weekday breakfasts. However, I might find I am wrong, which would be lovely.
A few of these would also be good as a sandwich version, made ahead and frozen for reheating. Also, a few call for croissants*, which are not cheap but can be found on sale if you look for them. *I am not talking about crescent rolls, though those are also in a few recipes. They are similar but not the same.
my husband we love to have croissants for breakfast, if you do not eat them in time they are not as nice. Or so my husband says. His palate is more in tune to that sort of thing. You can also find older ones on discount at the grocery store. I am thinking those would be good for some of these recipes, especially for those who will be soaked in eggs and milk.
