Easy Breakfast Ideas
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but it can also be the most difficult to fit into a busy morning routine. If you're struggling to find time for breakfast, here are a few easy breakfast ideas that will help you get out the door on an empty stomach.
- First, try prepping your breakfast the night before. This could mean packing a travel-friendly breakfast like yogurt or overnight oats, or simply making sure that all of your ingredients are ready to go so that you can quickly whip up a healthy breakfast in the morning.
- Another easy way to make breakfast on the go is to take advantage of quick and healthy breakfast options like smoothies, muffins, and granola bars. These grab-and-go options are often packed with nutrients and can be easily eaten on the go.
- If you're looking for something more substantial, consider making a breakfast sandwich or wrap ahead of time and keeping it in the fridge for an easy grab-and-go option.
Finally, don't forget that breakfast doesn't have to be complicated. Sometimes the simplest foods are the best option when you're short on time. A piece of fruit or a bowl of cereal can often be just as satisfying as a more elaborate meal, and they'll give you the energy you need to start your day off right.

What temp are baked eggs done?
- An easy way to tell when the scrambled egg muffins are cooked through are to use a digital meat thermometer.
- Check the eggs after 18 minutes of cooking. If the internal temperature reaches 160°F, they are cooked and you can remove them from the oven.
- You can also test by touching one of the egg muffins with your finger and see if they're either wet or dry. Dry means they're cooked through.
- For a savory option, try pairing scrambled egg muffins with toast and avocado. The healthy fats in avocado will help keep you full until lunch, while the carbohydrates in toast will give you an energy boost to start your day.
- If you're looking for something sweet, pair eggs with fruit and yogurt breakfast parfait. The protein in the eggs will balance out the sugars in the fruit and yogurt, making for a satisfying and nutritious breakfast.
- Or you can simply have a glass of orange or apple juice to go along with the egg muffins on the way out the door.
- These muffins also make a great addition to any brunch or buffet you're serving for family and friends over the holidays. Check out more ideas on what to serve over the holidays with my Christmas Breakfast Recipes collection.
