Breakfast Ideas?

I need some ideas/recipes for breakfast for our family. We are a family of 5 (6 during the summer).I know the usual pancakes, eggs, oatmeal, and cereal (all with fruit)... Any other ideas? Our kids have BIG appetites, so anything filling is good.

  • Overnight baked french toast. I don't have an exact recipe, I just eyeball it every time, but basically, get a loaf of day-old or marked down french bread. Cut into thick slices - about an inch. Grease a 9x13 pan and lay the bread slices in. In a bowl, mix anywhere from 6-12 eggs and some milk, add a little vanilla & some cinnamon, and pour over the bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight (make it right before going to bed). In the morning, set it out while the oven preheats, then bake til done/eggs are set. Serve with fresh fruit.

    Again, no exact recipe, but shreddd hashbrowns + cooked meat (ham, bacon, sausage) + eggs + chopped veggies if you like - mix, dump in a greased 9x13, bake til done. Or, similarly, cook cubed potatoes or hashbrowns in a pan. Add cooked meat & veggies, add whisked eggs, and scramble the whole works together. Top either dish with cheese if you like.

  • My kids want the same thing every day.Toasted English muffin with a sausage patty and cheese. Also good with bagel, sometimes we add an egg


     Aldi sells the frozen already cooked sausage patties, they are pretty good and you get several for under $4 here in ks anyhow
