We all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
It's also vital to help cure those first day of school jitters everyone experiences: parents and kids alike. It's critical for breakfast to be simple for you to make and delicious so the little ones don't try and trade with classmates in the cafeteria. Check out a few school breakfast ideas to make their day (and yours) extra special.
Egg in a Nest
Egg in a nest is not only delicious, it looks pretty and is full of nutrients. Instead of the regular plain eggs and toast, switch it up for the first day and try eggs inside of toast. All you need is an egg, a tablespoon of butter, and of course, a slice of bread.
- Crack the egg into a bowl and put it to the side
- Use the kids’ favorite cookie cutter and cut a unique shape into the bread
- Next, melt the butter on a pan over medium heat and place the bread on the pan to brown one side
- Last, pour the egg into the cut-out area and let it cook for 2-3 minutes
A peanut butter and banana smoothie is a great way to start the first day of school off right! It’s full of protein, fruit and dairy that makes it a great breakfast or even just a snack with the main dish. And, it’s super easy to make!
- You need 1 to 1 1/2 cups of milk
- 1 banana
- 1/3 cup of peanut butter
- Put all 3 into a blender and smooth for about 2 minutes. You could make it before the little ones wake up and let it sit in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Want a little something extra? Add a dash of chocolate syrup.
For a sweet treat, an easy cinnamon monkey bread will do the trick! Feel free to let them cook while you get the kids ready so they’ll have plenty of time to enjoy the ooey, gooey sensation.
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
- Grease a bundt pan extra well and put it to the side
- Mix cinnamon and sugar in a large zip to bag
- Open a can of 3 cinnamon rolls dough, cut 2 rolls in half, roll each piece into the bag and shake until they’re covered in dough
- Put those in pan and do the same for the remaining rolls
- Next, microwave a 1/2 cup of butter, 1/2 cup of brown sugar and 2 tablespoons of honey for 1 minute. Stir well until dissolved and pour over the pan
- Bake for 20-25 minutes
- Pour frosting on top
The first day of school is always special no matter how old the child is and a delish breakfast to start the day makes it even better!
