15 Back to School Breakfast Ideas for Busy Mornings
These back to school breakfast ideas feature quick, make ahead breakfasts that will help get the kiddos out the door without losing your mind!
Back to school photos are flooding my social media feed, and I’ll be honest, it’s making me feel panicky. I’m just not ready for summer to be over.
I need more pool, more grill nights, more bonfires, more sweaty zoo trips.
Plus, I’m just not that great at back to school mornings. I love taking the mornings slow, enjoying a cup of coffee, staying in pajamas well past the hour that is generally acceptable. I’m not ready for the hustle, but I know it’s coming.
So today, I’m doing one thing to make life on the other side a little easier. I’ve gathered up 15 of my favorite easy breakfast ideas for busy back to school mornings.
These are the things we depend on to get out the door: freezer friendly muffins, quick breads, and overnight casseroles we can eat all week long.
I hope this list saves you some sanity as we all try to get back into the routine. Until then, why don’t we all grab a frosty beverage and head to the pool just one more time.
