Now that the kids are back in school, we’ve traded the stress of having kids underfoot all day for hectic mornings. My kids have loved their new teachers and routines and it has been so much fun watching them start a new school year with great attitudes but those mornings may just do me in! These easy baked oatmeal muffins will save your sanity on crazy mornings before school and kids LOVE them! The best part is you can collect Box Tops with the new app to help your local schools when you buy what you need to make them at Walmart.
I’m obsessed with breakfast food. Anytime of the day, you say breakfast and I’m THERE.
Of course it’s always fun to change things up a bit. We gave brunch a fun twist with these Breakfast Pierogis. Filled with caramelized onion, goat cheese, and bacon and topped with an incredible maple butter, these are going to leave you craving more. I was so excited to have Smithfield sponsor today’s post so we could share one of our new favorite brunch recipes with you.
I love bacon blended with sweet flavors. That salty sweet combo gets me every time and it is so perfect for breakfast or bunch. These pierogis would have been amazing on their own but that maple butter just takes them over the top.
We make breakfast for dinner at least 3 times a week at my house, so we are always looking for fun ways to change things up. A good friend (who is a master chef and my inspiration for all things in the kitchen) is polish and loves pierogi’s for breakfast.
We are not morning people at my house. There’s definitely no “rise and shining” going on around here.
Or course, we do know that starting the morning off right is so important to helping the rest of the day go smoothly so we make a good solid effort to have a great morning. One of our favorite ways to jump start the morning is with these quick and easy yogurt parfaits using our favorite Yoplait yogurt. These require almost no prep-work (perfect when you just don’t have it in you in the mornings) and they are so much fun for kids to make on their own.
BONUS: That means you don’t have to make everyone breakfast. Just spread out the ingredients on the counter and let them go to town.
Huevos Rancheros were not something I had the pleasure of discovering until my family moved to San Diego. Once we discovered the deliciousness that happens when you combine something as simple as eggs, salsa, and corn tortillas, there was no going back.
Huevos Rancheros, or “Ranch Eggs” are about as casual of a breakfast as you can get but they are so, sooo good.
Now that we have moved away from San Diego (we will always feel like native San Diegans at heart) we have to get our Huevos Rancheros fix at home. This recipe pulls in all our favorite Mexican flavors and adds some delicious S&W black beans for some extra protein.
