Make Ahead Hot Breakfasts for Busy Moms

by Lisa Douglas

Getting ready for school is hard enough without having to factor in preparing a healthy breakfast. I don’t know about you, but for me, in my house, I want my kids to start the day with a nice hot meal. Warm and cozy, something that starts their days off right, something homemade. But, in the mornings, where time is lacking, is there really time to do homemade? There is if you plan ahead, like with all of these make ahead hot breakfasts for busy moms. Good for the kids, and good for YOU too, mom.

Make Ahead Hot Breakfasts for Busy MomsI used to have a Sunday/Wednesday ritual of making homemade hot breakfasts and freezing/refrigerating them ahead of time. Preparing your breakfasts in advance is SO beneficial. Plus, it’s CRAZY delicious when you can add your own special flair in there, like a dash of lemon in your pancakes, or sneak a few shakes of cinnamon into waffles (one of my kids’ favorites, in fact)! Check out this scrumptious Stuffed Overnight French Toast Casserole!
