Breakfast planning for a big family
Do you meal plan? I typically breakfast plan every other weekend and its such a blessing when I do! It makes the mornings go SO much smoother and the kids have a much better breakfast than frozen waffles. But I'm not knocking frozen waffles, I think they're right up there with sliced bread! Genius!! What I am saying is that I've noticed better concentration and attitudes when our kiddos get a healthy breakfast and if its all ready, I have a better attitude too!
One of the things I've been doing is keeping all of our leftover bread like the heel, or 1 lonely bun and tearing them up and putting them in a bag in the freezer, then when I have enough I make it into a breakfast casserole!
Something else I do is make an abundance of bacon, sausage, egg "muffins", and "pan" cakes and various egg casseroles
Egg "muffins" I add a small piece of crescent roll or biscuit in the bottom of the muffin pan and pour the mixed eggs over the top and bake
"Pan" cakes I mix up the whole box of batter - this was a keto pancake mix, or I use a high protein mix and then pour it all in a sheet pan and bake, this time I added a strawberry puree into the mix
Bacon & sausage I just cook a bunch up and then put it the fridge to warm up to go with our breakfasts
It takes a little bit of time & a couple of extra dishes, but absolutely worth it!!!
Happy breakfast planning,
We'll see ya real soon!
