Breakfast Ideas for Busy Mornings
Starting your morning with a warm, nourishing meal is the recipe for a great day. The trick is finding the time to sit down to a hot breakfast on busy mornings. But with just a little bit of preparation and simple ingredients, you can take precious time to pause in the morning with your loved ones before you head out in the world. Our make-ahead yogurt and fruit parfaits are perfect to grab on the way out the door. Or throw together our California breakfast casserole the night before and your family can warm their bellies with a healthy breakfast you will feel good about.
Our California Breakfast Casserole is loaded with sausage avocados and tomatoes. The perfect savory breakfast for when you get together with family and friends. If you are more of a night owl instead of an early bird, try our Crockpot Breakfast Casserole! It is perfect when you have overnight company. Throw it in the Crock pot at night and breakfast is ready in the morning. You just can’t go wrong with either of these breakfast ideas!
Homemade Cinnamon Rolls
The Best Homemade Cinnamon Rolls you’ve been craving are right here! This soft, fluffy cinnamon roll recipe with the perfect blend of cinnamon and sugar, is topped with the most luscious cream cheese frosting. They’re so dreamy! We have many different variations of these cinnamon rolls including Caramel Apple, Peaches and Cream, and even Biscoff (or Cookie Butter) Cinnamon Rolls!
How to Make Hash Browns the RIGHT Way
Looking for a hash browns recipe that doesn’t taste like raw potato? Look no further. These hash browns are crispy on the outside yet perfectly cooked on the inside. They will go awesome with any of the breakfast ideas on this list. They are so easy to make and they come out perfectly every time.
The Perfect Omelet
Omelets really aren’t that scary to make. You can do it! However, if you want an alternative to making your omelet in a pan, try our Omelette in a Bag recipe! I love both of these recipes equally and use them interchangeably. Both of these breakfast ideas turn out great. It really just depends on how you feel like preparing them. Make this your own, personal “perfect omelet” by adding your favorite toppings to either recipe.
Make Ahead Breakfast Parfaits
Grab and Go Make Ahead Breakfast Parfaits are a quick, healthy breakfast for busy mornings. Yogurt, granola, and fruit will start your day off right. This is one of my very favorite make ahead breakfast ideas of all time. My husband loves grabbing these on his way to work. They are the easiest, no-fuss breakfast or snack! Get the cups here!
Soft Yogurt Pancakes with Homemade Yogurt Syrup
Yogurt Pancakes with Homemade Syrup are the best pancakes ever! The yogurt in the pancakes and in the syrup gives both a rich texture and flavor. The pancakes on their own are amazing but the syrup… the syrup is liquid HEAVEN. It is smooth, slightly creamy, and perfectly sweet. I really could probably drink it through a straw. I promise, you will not be disappointed.
Light Freezer Breakfast Sandwiches
These Breakfast Freezer Sandwiches are another one of our favorite make ahead breakfast ideas. You can easily make 24 at one time with our easy bulk method. You can make them all at once, freeze them, and pull them out one at a time to heat and eat on the go!
Are you more of a “blend and drink” kind of breakfast person? These smoothie breakfast ideas are for you! Our most popular is our Cool Cucumber Green Smoothie followed closely by our Peaches and Cream Breakfast Smoothie and our Golden Detox Smoothie. Still not enough smoothie ideas?

French toast is one of those make ahead breakfast ideas that is perfect for when company is in town. You can get it all prepped the night before and then pop it in the oven the next morning. Plus it is always a huge hit. Especially our Copycat Kneaders French Toast and our Caramel Apple French Toast. My personal favorite is our Strawberries and Cream Stuffed French Toast. It is so pretty and OH so good!
Hard Boiled Eggs
Who says hard boiled eggs have to be boring? They go well with just about any breakfast food and you can serve them dozens of different ways. I like chopping mine up and serving over some avocado toast with some Sriracha. Hard Boiled Eggs in the Instant Pot is THE way to go. It is SO EASY and they come put perfect every time. Plus they peel like a DREAM!
Homestyle Biscuits and Gravy
Nothing quite says “Country Breakfast” like Biscuits and Gravy. It is such a hearty, comfort breakfast that everyone loves. Soft, buttery biscuits with rich, country sausage gravy. It just can’t be beat.
