Foodie Friday: Breakfast to Go!

Seems on some school mornings we are in such a rush.  Noah has drumline practice 2-3 mornings a week at 7 a.m., so those days he eats breakfast in the car on the way to school.  (our "breakfast in bed tray" gets a good workout in the van, ha)    I always think about what we'll have for breakfast the night before since many school mornings when I have to wake up at 5:45 a.m. (seriously?) I don't want to have to think about it.  Many days I'll just wrap up a bowl of oatmeal or a biscuit with sausage/eggs.   Here are some of the other things that work for us for a filling Breakfast On the Go -

Bacon/Cheddar Muffins: (pictured)  I made these recently and yum, they are good.  They freeze well, too, so you can just pop them in the microwave.  Great with a banana!  As written, they aren't that spicy, so don't be afraid of the cayenne.


Breakfast Quesadillas:   These are fun since you can put almost anything in them.  Just throw a flour tortilla in a non-stick pan heated on medium heat.  Top with a little grated cheese, scrambled eggs, a bacon slice or two, and finish with a little more cheese (helps the top tortilla "stick") and the second tortilla.  Heat on both sides until the cheese melts.  Other versions - peanut butter, sliced bananas and a little granola;   light cream cheese, strawberries, and bananas;  scrambled eggs, diced deli ham, shredded cheese.   Lots of combos!

French Toast Sticks:   Just make your favorite french toast, but make it with really thick bread slices.  Instead of using the whole slice of bread, slice them into big sticks.  Prepare as you normally would.  If you want to freeze them, just flash freeze them on a cookie sheet first, then throw them all in a freezer bag together.  Heat them in a microwave when you are ready to eat.   Put the syrup in a dixie cup to take it with you for dipping! :)

What other things do you like to make for on the go breakfasts?  
Have a wonderful weekend, blog friends!
