  • pancakes with bananas, strawberries, a tiny bit of whipped cream and a piece of bacon or sausage. Mind you I use the Aunt Jemima frozed mini pancakes because its easier when you dont have much time.

  • We only make breakfast on the weekends. Durning the week, they eat granola bars, bagels, frozen sausage biscuits. On the weekend, one of our favorites is eggs-cheese and toast. A piece of toast, then American cheese then a fried egg, all stacked together in that order. You can also do it with scrambled eggs.

  • my sister once took the mini candy canes and crushed them up and put the pieces in the pancakes...OMG they were good! course its hard to get the candy canes out of the christmas
    but one thing my husband and i make is monkey bread...

    you take four cans of pillsbury biscuits and cut them in quarters and toss them in cinnamon and sugar and throw them in a greased bundt pan....

    do this with all four cans of biscuits...

    then melt together 1 and a half sticks of butter and a cup of brown sugar till its all blended together...

    pour over the biscuits in the bundt pan, bake at 350 for 25 min, invert immediately onto a plate when done, then let cool for two min.

  • My kids get their own breakfast in the morning so it's whatever they can get themselves...cereal, toast with peanut butter, English muffins (if we have them), fresh fruit, yogurt, these sausage croissant sandwiches we buy (not healthy but they are a great treat once in awhile), leftover pizza. Usually it's cereal.
    Occasionally they ask for oatmeal and I make that.

  • I usually do scrambled eggs and toast, cereal, fruit, pancakes....whatever they want, my boys are pretty easy though....

    One thing that you might want to try is using food coloring! You can make GREEN eggs or BLUE eggs or PURPLE (red and blue) and then you can make take colored milk on bread and make a face using a paint brush with it, then toast it and it stays!! It's really cool! Some times a little bit of cheese and some food coloring can get the job done! :)

  • Frozen whole grain waffles, cereal or frozen pancakes, juice or milk. I just wish they would make whole grain frozen pancakes. Sometimes they want English muffins or Bagels w/cream cheese. I don't make a huge breakfast ever, it just makes them want to eat more the rest of the day. A little goes a long way. Thankfully they aren't big eaters anyway.

  • Durng the week it's nothing spectacular, lol. They either have cereal and milk, oatmeal, frozen waffles or pancakes and that's about it.

  • Today I made my son whole grain banana pancakes, fat free turkey bacon with blueberries and strawberries. Tomorrow he will have oatmeal and pears. Another breakfast he loves is whole grain blueberry waffles (with blueberries I pick and freeze) with scrambled egg whites. Egg white omelettes with onions, peppers, tomatoes and mushrooms is a favorite.   I am a SAHM and being able to cook for my family is one of the reason why I am home.  Breakfast is the most important meal of the day so I make sure what he eats will keep him going until lunch time and help him be able to concentrate at school.
