I have had a lot of queries from readers asking about quick and easy breakfast options, a lot of you skip it and that is just not on… As we all know it is the MOST important meal of the day! I understand people are pushed for time with children, getting ready for school and work, so I have selected a few of my favorite breakfast recipes, some of which can be made ahead so they are a grab and go option. They can be eaten for brunch or lunch too and all recipes are Gluten-free with some Paleo recipes here too.
First up is my one egg wraps, you can have these pre-made and in the fridge ready to be filled in the morning. Here is the recipe -> One Egg Wrap and below are some ideas for fillings depending on how much time you have.
- Bacon with your choice of sauce – who doesn’t love a bit of bacon in the morning?! 🙂
- Sausage & cheese – very satisfying and will keep you full until lunch
- Tuna Salad
- Chicken, Rocket & Cucumber
- Ham & Egg Mayo
Mini egg muffins or mini frittatas as I like to call them are extremely easy to make. You can cook a batch on Sunday night and you can use right up until Wednesday. Here is the recipe -> Mini Frittata. Again, these can be filled with your favorite ingredients. Below are some suggestions, remember to cut the ingredients in to small dice.
- Bacon lardons, mature cheddar, spring onion & sun-dried tomato
- Broccoli, feta & sun-dried tomato
- Spinach & Parmesan
- Chorizo, red peppers & parsley
- Cooked cubed potato & sausage
The next recipe is from the wonderful Michelle at Cavegirl Cuisine, I made these wraps yesterday and they were delicious (I was so hungry they were gone before I remembered about a photo..oooops sorry! I will get one next time, promise!)
All her recipe are Paleo, you can of course change the filling to your preference but I loved the sausage and egg mixture. Michelle calls this her Breakfast Burrito Pancake and if you are a breakfast skipper I guarantee you will start having it again once you try this OR any of the above recipes!
Is there any other breakfast / lunch recipes you would like to share?
