Does your family love breakfast as much as mine do? I can barely get my kids to eat dinner, but they will eat a HUGE breakfast.
I like to change things up and make them all different kinds of food, but it’s easy to get in a rut and make the same few things over and over. Sometimes I just need some motivation or reminders to help get me out of it.
My kids eat scrambled eggs, fruit and bagels and cream cheese, but those get old and fast. You’ll get out of your rut with these simple breakfast ideas!
I know early mornings can be hard so I’ve included some breakfast recipes for early mornings and delicious simple family brunch ideas when you have more time. I’ve also tried to get a variety because you know kids…sometimes they like it and sometimes they don’t. Sometimes I just have to break out the canned cinnamon rolls!
I made a New Year’s resolution a few years ago to go the entire year without cereal! I know, I was CRAZY! You can read about it here. It has this list of breakfast foods too, but you can learn more about our experience. It actually was WAY easier than I thought it would be!
When I started, I thought I would have to get up a lot earlier to cook, and that just wasn’t true. It was hard the first couple of weeks, but it got easier and easier. Check out some of our favorite recipes below.

Waffles or Pancakes

Homemade bread (from the breadmaker)
If you have a bread maker, you should already be doing this! Make it the night before, put the timer on and have fresh bread in the morning.
