Make these easy peanut butter cheerio bars for a grab-and-go breakfast on busy mornings!Read More
Since we had a snow day, I decided to make a nice breakfast for the kids. I am not so great at early mornings (see my freezer breakfast solution HERE) but I can handle a nice, late breakfast on a relaxing day at home once in awhile. These are one of my kids' favorites. I always have an assortment of jelly (see HERE) so I can make a variety of them with very little effort.
I have horrible lighting in my kitchen, especially on a snowy day, so please excuse my lousy pictures.
Spread peanut butter and jelly on bread. (Seeded Italian bread is not ideal, but it is what we had on hand.) On these I used strawberry, grape, and peach jams.
Roll them up from the jelly side to the peanut butter side. The jelly oozes and the peanut butter is sticky and helps seal it up. The bread might break apart a bit, so just smoosh it together as needed. If you want to cut the crust off, you can do that, but I don't like to waste/encourage picky eating.
Mix one egg and a cup of milk in a dish- I use a soup bowl. Roll the bread around in the milk-egg mixture to coat.
Fry in a lightly greased pan on medium-low heat, rolling around to brown all of the outer edges.
Remove from heat and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
I love that these are so easy and add a little extra protein with breakfast. They really aren't that hard to make and it is something different to mix things up.

I don't like mornings.
But, I do like breakfast!
It just takes me awhile to wake up enough to make breakfast.
One of my favorite easy breakfast dishes is baked omelet roll. It just looks fancy and the eggs are nice and fluffy since you mix everything in the blender. I have made it for brunch showers or MOPS meetings. You can add in spinach for a nice pop of color (and healthiness). Bacon or ham would be great, too. No one has to know that you put hardly any effort into it!
I also figured out that the baked eggs are perfect for breakfast sandwiches! Before, I would fry up my eggs on the stovetop and cut them up for sandwiches. It was a bit tedious. This is the way to go! It is healthier because they are baked, not fried. I can get eggs for 6-8 sandwiches from each batch.
Here is the super easy recipe:
Baked Omelet Roll
6 large eggs
1/2 cup flour
1 cup milk
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Combine everything except the cheese in a blender or food processor. Blend well. Place parchment paper in 9 x 13 pan. Pour egg mixture into pan. Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until eggs are set. Remove from oven and sprinkle cheese on top. Allow to cool until it isn't too warm to handle. Roll from one short end and tuck the other short end underneath. Slice and serve.
My original pancake freezer breakfast sandwiches can be found HERE. I also did English muffins last time because I got a great deal on them.
I am not really a morning person.
My husband gets up really, really early for work and
knows better than to try to wake me up lets me sleep. In appreciation for this, I try to make sure that he has something that he can grab for breakfast. These pancake breakfast sandwiches are his favorite! It is basically like a McGriddle from McDonald's. Except I know what is in these.
I like to make a big batch of them at once and put them in the freezer so that he can microwave them before he leaves for work. I do a lot of multitasking so it saves on cooking time, too.
Here are some of the things that I do to make this work:
- Make your pancakes a little thick so that the syrup soaks in and it is a better sandwich size.
- Use a cookie scoop to put the batter on the griddle. It keeps them all about the same size.
- When they are cooked and cooled slightly, match them in pairs. Place one pancake on a plate. and pour about a tablespoon of maple syrup in the center. Quickly put the other pancake on top and flip the pancakes over so that it runs down into the second pancake, too. It might get a little messy, but you can use the next pair of pair of pancakes to wipe the plate off and soak up any excess syrup.
- I used ham lunchmeat this time because I got a good deal on it locally. However, bacon or sausage patties would also be delicious. Bacon is, of course, his favorite.
- Assemble the sandwiches and wrap them in a bit of Glad Press'n'Seal. It is a bit thicker than plastic wrap, so it makes it a little easier for him to eat on the go.
- Place all of the wrapped sandwiches in a freezer bag so that they aren't getting lost in your freezer. Although, that has happened and it is a nice surprise if I find it in time.
- To reheat, vent the Press'n'Seal and microwave on high for 2 minutes. Be careful!
