5 Inexpensive Breakfast Recipes

Need some cheap and easy breakfast ideas? Here are some of the staple breakfast meals at our house.

1. Eggs & Toast
The classic breakfast! Beat 2 eggs with a dollop of milk, then scramble in a hot skillet.

Pair with some homemade bread and homemade freezer jam (using pick your own berries, of course!)

If you don't have jam, try topping your toast with peanut butter or soy butter.

2. Oatmeal with raisins
1/2 C Quick Oats
1/8 C Raisins (or other dried fruit)
1 T brown sugar

Mix all of the above, then add boiling water and stir.

This is a great make-ahead meal. Lay out a row of small plastic containers and put the above ingredients in each one. Store in the pantry, then in the morning just boil the water and pour it in for a quick meal.

3. Granola with Applesauce or Yogurt
It doesn't get any easier than this. Dump some homemade granola into applesauce or yogurt.

This is a great go-to meal when a cranky toddler needs breakfast NOW!

4. Breakfast Burrito
I made these burritos vegetarian by substituting TVP (textured vegetable protein) for the meat. This is a great freezer recipe, so you can just pull out a few to use as you need them.

5. No sugar breakfast cookies
Make these cookies ahead for the perfect breakfast on the go!

Try these ideas out and let me know what you think!
