This week, along with menu plans, we’ll be sharing ideas for quick and easy breakfasts to help make getting ready for school in the mornings a breeze.
I have three big tips for quick breakfasts:
1. Plan Ahead. Planning ahead allows me to make the most of my time. One morning I’ll fry a pound of bacon, then quickly reheat the leftover bacon on other mornings. Another morning I’ll chop up fruit for a fruit salad, and use the leftovers later in the week for smoothies.
2. Make large batches and freeze or refrigerate leftovers when you can. I’ll make big batches of muffins, pancakes, French toast, etc. and freeze the leftovers so I can quickly reheat them another morning.
3. Don’t be afraid to use leftovers for breakfast. Don’t forget about dinner leftovers, too. We will often reheat Chicken Apple Sausage for breakfast. Use leftover meats and veggies for a quick egg scramble or frittata.
For lots of more great ideas, check out these past roundups we’ve done on gluten-free breakfast ideas:

Gluten Free Menu Swap Roundup
Gluten Free Detroit Metro: Gluten-Free Menu
Amanda joins us this week, and seems to be in agreement about planning your breakfasts for the school morning rush. Amanda says she likes to have pre-made breakfast items available, or simple breakfasts the older kids can manage on their own. She also says Once A Month Menu is a good source for ideas. Check out all of the links for Amanda’s dinner menu this week: Sausage Sandwiches and Hot Dogs, Spicy Slow Cooker Beef and Peppers, Pork Chops, Pizza, Grilled or Baked Chicken, Caribbean Grilled Salmon Kabob.
The Girl Who Couldn’t Eat Anything: eating without Gluten, Dairy, Peanuts, Oats, or Meat
Elisabeth loves to have breakfast items in her freezer to use for quick breakfasts. She has some yummy breakfast options on her menu this week: Almond Chocolate Muffins from “The Allergy-Free Cook Bakes Bread,” Chocolate Gluten Free donuts, Pancakes, sausage, Smoothie, and Simple Grain Free Granola. For dinner this week she’ll be eating Chicken A La King (from Better Homes and Gardens Cook Book–although it was so easy I almost didn’t need a recipe!), Pancakes (same as above), Trader Joe’s gluten-free Chicken nuggets, Beans and rice and/or beans and hotdogs, Pizza, and Fish.
