Mornings at the beginning of the school year are the worst! Trying to get kiddos back in a regular routine and out the door on time is nearly impossible, trying to get them fed a decent breakfast is impossible. I always have grand plans of waking up and making my family a fabulous breakfast to start the day but even though the good intention is there with all of the chaos, it just doesn’t happen.
This year I started early, like really early and I made 5 make ahead back to school breakfast recipes. I whipped up all of these delicious recipes, threw them in the freezer and now all I have to do is remember to pull them out and pop them in the microwave. Fingers crossed I can at least get that done!
Moms, these recipes are easy to make and all are a hit with the kids. Having these make ahead breakfast recipes ready to go is definitely going to make like much easier!
