Breakfast on the go!

So I have a fifteen year old and a ten year old. The older one is starting high school and will be taking the bus rather early in the morning. The ten year old I will drop off at school (30 minutes away) everyday on the way to work. My question is... what are some breakfast ideas we can take and eat on the run? You can only eat so many poptarts, granola bars, etc.. etc... I'm all about grabbing a piece of fruit and all but it just doesn't seem like enough. I eat oatmeal when I get to work every morning without fail. I feel guilty handing my sons a granola bar and expect that to carry them until lunch.

Any ideas?

Breakfast burritos, sausage biscuits, cereal without the milk.  If they are careful you can do waffle sticks (my mom has a waffle iron that makes them) and dip them in syrup.  Fruit always works as will yogurt drinks.

Are you done with one?  Is your one a boy?  Want to chat with other Moms who are raising the only boy?  Then check out the group  Raising the Only Boy - CafeMom


Please ask me about car seats and how your child can be safer in one.  I am now a CPS Tech (car seat tech).

What about a cold bagel with cream cheese. I lived off of that when I was in H.S. Does the schools offer breakfast? My son's elementary school did in CA and my Highschool in CT did. My only other suggestion is to wake up earlier. :) It's what I had to start doing just so I could get the dishes done and a load of laundry in the washer.

I would just walk up and down the grocery aisle and see what you can find.

My ds eats breakfast often on our 20 min a.m. Route also. He really likes cinnamon or orange rolls (only takes 10 min to bake) pillsbury. I just cut into pieces and put in a cup or on a plate with diced fruit. On hurried mornings, I make him breakfast hot pockets- although they're full of preservatives, they do have protein + calcium. And they are ready in 2 minutes:)

My family loves toast, bagels with cream cheese and (make ahead!) cinnimon rolls.  An egg sandwitch is also pretty quick, but you can easily make the eggs the night before and nuke it while you pop some english muffins in the toaster.

There's also frittatas that you can stuff with just about anything...cheese, meats, veggies.  I have eaten them hot, warm and room temp and enjoyed them.  I usually cut them up in pie shapes and they hold together pretty well...I would think they would car travel well especially with older kids.

You can make Jumbo Breakfast Cookies. They have nearly everything you could normally have for breakfast and the recipe is so versatile you can easily change the ingredients for a different taste. The cookies contain peanut butter, oatmeal, Cheerios (any flavor), then you can add 1 1/2 cups of anything. You can mix anything from chocolate chips, raisins/craisins, or nuts. They're really good and it tricks my daughter into thinking she's eating a bit of junk food for breakfast.

Try P-nut butter or cream cheese bagels, cheese sticks. Egg muffins (they are basicly scrambled eggs with bacon or sausage, onions or whatever you want to add baked in muffin tins) I pop them in the freezer for later & nuke em just before we leave. Breakfast sandwiches are great too or breakfast burritos. For the breakfast sandwiches I toast & butter an english muffin top it with scrambled eggs, bacon or a sausage patty or canadian bacon & a little cheese & then top it with the 2nd slice. Yum.
