Weekday mornings can be very hectic. I get it. Especially the beginning of the school year when we’re all trying to get back into a routine.

We ALL need to eat a breakfast and these 5 make ahead ideas are hearty enough to get you through the morning.
5 Hearty and Make Ahead Breakfast Ideas
This is an easy freezer recipe. I make a double batch and store them in freezer bags. In the morning, I warm the burritos up in the microwave for a minute or two and that’s it for breakfast prep.
2. Baked Oatmeal
This is my personal favorite breakfast. I make a pan on Sunday night and it will last us about 3 mornings, if all 4 of us eat it for breakfast. Store in the refrigerator and heat your portion in the microwave for a few seconds to warm up. I like to pour a little milk on top of mine.

Like the waffles, I make a double batch and store in freezer bags. In the mornings, I pop in the toaster. I like to serve with fresh fruit.
