13+ Easy Breakfast Ideas

While breakfast is known as the most important meal of the day, it can sometimes be a hassle to make.

From waking up, to getting ready and ensuring you’re on time for your day, breakfast can seemingly become an easy thing to skip to save time.

Luckily, there are plenty of ways to make an easy breakfast!

This way, you save yourself time but give your body and mind the energy and nutrients it deserves for the day ahead. Some easy breakfast ideas are listed below:

  1. Bowl of Cereal 

While this isn’t the most nutritious breakfast, it is quite easy to prepare!

Grabbing a bowl of cereal and simply adding in some sliced almonds and a cut up banana or blueberries can be a great start to your day!

You can even replace milk with almond milk to make it a bit healthier!


  1. Any Type of Casserole


Breakfast casseroles are a one-stop-shop for everyone!

As a dish that can be easily personalized, giving you and your family complete control over what you want to put in it (say, eggs, bacon, ham, cheese and who knows what else?!), this is a great breakfast that can be made quickly.

Just layer all your ingredients in a greased baking dish, whisk some eggs, add them to the top, and let it bake for forty minutes!

While it’s cooking, you can get ready for the day.

Better yet, you can even prep the dish the night before.

Then, simply slide it into the oven when you first wake up and save yourself preparation time in the morning!

  1. French Toast

Classic or customized, French toast is a family favorite that you can make every morning!

All you have to do is dip some bread in egg batter and let it fry for a minute or so on a skillet.

By throwing powdered sugar, cool whip and sliced strawberries on top, you can satisfy any sweet tooth.

As a bonus, by changing these toppings every morning, you’ll give your family the diversity they’re craving!

  1. Quiche

 Just like casseroles, quiche is a quick prep meal that can make any morning better!

By just mixing eggs with spinach and cheese and setting it to bake, you can get you and your family ready while the quichey-goodness cooks!

Trying out different ingredients can also change up any flavor! This is another great, one-pan-meal!

  1. Pancakes

pancakesWho says pancakes have to take a lot of time?

Grab a shake-n-bake from your local grocery store, throw some water in the bottle, and pour the mix onto a hot pan.

You’ll have a loaded stack in no time! Just don’t forget that syrup!

  1. Pancake Mini-Muffins

 Looking for something sweet and different?

Take that same shake-n-bake batter and pour it into a mini-muffin pan!

Add some fruit or granola on top and stick it into the oven to bake.

When done, you’ll have mini-muffins that are ready for a grab and go adventure!

  1. Smoothies

 Although smoothies aren’t necessarily a full meal, they can be filling and give you a lot of energy.

Just have a blender and some ice ready!

The concoction is your choice: yogurt, blueberries, strawberries, bananas, mango—whatever you want, you enjoy.

Press puree and sip at home or pour it into a to-go cup for the road!

  1. Cinnamon-Rolls

Once again, don’t be afraid to take advantage of pre-packaged meals if you need more time in the morning!

Pillsbury makes some fantastic cinnamon rolls—just pop the container, lay them in a baking pan, and let them bake!

Don’t forget that cream cheese glaze though—it’s the best part!

  1. Cinnamon Roll Waffles 

Looking to mix it up a bit? Take that cinnamon roll batter and place it in a waffle maker! You can get the best of both worlds!

  1. Waffles

 Waffles mix is quick and easy, and if needed, there is pre-packaged batter available.

The most important investment, however, is your waffle maker.

Investing in a waffle maker can save you time and help you make a quick, yummy breakfast or brunch—all you do is pour and flip!

The set timer will notify you when your waffle has been cooked to golden perfection.

  1. Egg and Ham Sandwich

Most people don’t realize that you can cook your eggs in the microwave: simply crack the yolk into a bowl, heat it for a minute, and boom!

You have a cooked egg, which is now conveniently the perfect shape for an English muffin sandwich.

Just add on a slice of deli-meat for extra protein, cheese for flavor or a splash of brown mustard for spice, and you’ve got yourself and grab and go breakfast sandwich in under two minutes!

  1. Breakfast Quesadilla

Filled with scrambled eggs, green peppers, bacon and any cheese your heart desires, breakfast quesadillas are easy to make and promise to be filling.

Often squished between two tortilla shells or wraps, all you have to do is fry and stuff!

From preparation to consumption—this quick meal can be done in less than twenty minutes and is customizable based off your favorite flavors!

  1. Yogurt 

If you’re really pressed for time, don’t be afraid to simply scoop some Greek Yogurt into a cup and splash a bit of coconut, granola and strawberries on the top!

High in protein and filling—this is a great grab and go meal that feels refreshing on any day.

  1. Toast, Bagels and English Muffins, Oh My!

Although filled with carbs, toast, bagels and English muffins are great for an easy breakfast.

Simply pop them in the toaster and slather with some cream cheese, avocado, peanut butter or almond butter!

Although mornings can feel hectic and rushed, there are so many breakfast options for you and your family.

Between pre-packaged foods or dishes that are prepped the night before, you can save time in the morning and make easy breakfasts for you and the family.

It is, after all, the most important meal of the day—so eat up!
