As it is quite cold in the mornings, I wanted something warm for them and I to eat before they head off out into the cold, but it also needed to be something that was fairly quick to prepare and/or eat, as we try to squeeze a lot into our mornings with Scripture Study and showers and taking our daily Instagram Selfies and of course the Children trying not to get out of bed until the last possible second...
So, we started a list of breakfast ideas that we already eat, which I've recreated below.
Cereal with fresh fruit scattered over the top.
Yogurt and fruit or Museli
Home Made Breakfast Muffins
Toast with some kind of topping spread over the top.
Pancakes (American style) with fruit
Waffles (with fruit)
Crumpets (if I forget that the children say they don't like them!)
Croissants (a rare treat)
Gilmore Girl Bagels
Pastries (Home made and a rare treat!)
Eggy Bready (but not the sweet version)
Scrambled Eggs and Toast.
Omelette (only if we can bribe Dan Jon!)
Bullseye Egg (a rare treat)
Egg Muffins/Crustless Quiches
Boiled Egg and Dippy Soldiers
Beans on Toast.
Sausages and Hash Browns (a rare treat)
Sausage Sandwich (a rare treat)
Bacon Roll (a rare treat)
Home Made Sausage and Egg Muffins (more a weekend treat)
Full English (well my version of it)
Kippers with Fresh Bread (a rare treat for Me because the children aren't keen)
Porridge (with or without fruit!)
Blimey! We eat a huge variety of breakfasts, we could eat a different breakfast everyday for a month!
However, we're after some more ideas. We want to try some new ideas, some new breakfasts and so we're opening this up to you. What do you eat for breakfast with your family? What are your go to staples?
We're excited to know what breakfasts everyone else eats and looks forward to, especially if you have any slow cooker recipes! I've been experimenting with some over the last few weeks and have had some success...but I've also had a lot of failures! I'll have to blog them so that you can learn from my mistakes... or work out where I went wrong.
