Back-to-School: Make Ahead Breakfast!

It is that time of year again. Time to send the troops back-to-school. Let’s face it, we enjoy our summer so it can be very difficult for everyone to get back into the routine of getting ready for school each day. Even us moms get frazzled in the morning getting everyone ready. Sure we know the best way to make sure our kids are ready for a great day of learning is a healthy and wholesome breakfast. But sometimes we barely have time for toast. But now all you need is a microwave to heat up these Pre-made breakfasts that will keep everyone happy, healthy and ready to go!

We have scoured the Internet and found a few great recipes. They are pretty easy to put together on a day off with the help of your kids. Then just zip-lock bag, wrap, and freeze them. When it is breakfast time on that first day of school pull them out and pop them in the microwave. Voila! A great breakfast with time to spare!
