I feel like a list of Quick Breakfast Ideas is the kind of roundup you’d typically see at back-to-school time. “School’s in session, so let’s talk about making busy mornings easier!” Let me tell you something. I have infinitely more enthusiasm for getting kids ready for school at the beginning of the year than I do at the end. This Buzzfeed list sums up that feeling so perfectly, and I urge you to click over and look at it. It’s seriously one of my favorite things ever. So funny!

Quick Breakfast Ideas you could even make before having your first cup of coffee!

10 Quick Breakfast Ideas You Can Make Before Your Morning Coffee

I’m wrapping up my second year as PTA VP, and I am so. over. it. I am beyond burned out on anything related to PTA and don’t talk to me about how I feel about making lunches every morning. Granted, I still end up packing lunches all summer because my kids go to a lot of day camps, but my point is that I’m dragging in the mornings by this point of the school year. What used to be a plate of bacon, eggs, toast, and fruit (possibly arranged in some sort of happy face) on school day mornings has turned into a bowl of cereal almost every day.

Do you feel the same about making breakfast for the kids every day? Or are you a busy professional who needs a quick breakfast before running out the door for work? Whatever the reason, I think it’s always handy to have some go-to options for breakfast that take very little time or brainpower but are more exciting than cold cereal. That’s why I’m bringing you these quick breakfast ideas to make your mornings easier (and more delicious)!

Look forward to waking up to this delicious Raspberry Chocolate Breakfast Trifle!

Such a great collection of easy breakfast recipes! My only issue is.. nothing gets down before coffee over here. I can’t even open a poptart wrapper before I’ve had coffee. (That’s a true story!) Haha!

Haha I’m imagining the testing that went into finding out you couldn’t open pop tarts without coffee ;) Thank you, Kelley!

It’s always a good idea to be a member of your school’s PTA, but being on the board is a different can of worms. Depending on the school and job you take, it can be a big commitment! It’s rewarding but also draining when you have other stuff to do like writing breakfast roundups ;) Thank you, Nancy!

You are so welcome! I don’t think I exactly asked you if I could share your recipes in roundups. I hope you don’t mind!! I remembered these sandwiches from several months ago and thought they would be perfect. :)

Oh, we are all about the cereal around here too. I’ve been bad lately and my boys have been buying at school because I dislike making their lunches so much! I love these easy breakfast ideas. Thanks for including me! Pinned!

It’s hard to resist cereal. It’s so easy to just pour and serve! My little one doesn’t have a school lunch option, and my older one is so picky that he only wants to eat the food about twice a month. I would definitely have him buy it more often if I thought he’d actually eat it!
