Breakfast is something we all struggle with. It’s hard to assemble something healthy and satisfying in the morning when you’re still half-asleep waiting for your coffee to be ready. I have a better idea: Prep it ahead of time. Carve out a little time on Sunday to make one big batch breakfast that you and your family can enjoy all week long without having to even think about it. All you simply have to do is reheat it quickly in the microwave or just grab it from the pantry or fridge. Here are 7 ideas to inspire you.

Sheet Pan Veggie Frittata from Kitchn

Toss just about any mix of vegetables you have on hand into this customizable frittata. Then enjoy it in slabs in the morning or tuck a square between a split and toasted English muffin for an impromptu egg sandwich.

Steel cut oats are an extra hearty and comforting breakfast but they take quite a long time to cook. Here they soften overnight while you sleep so you can wake up to a perfect bowl without having to wait.

How to Batch Prep Breakfast Sandwiches from Simply Sissom

Clear out space for these breakfast sandwiches in your freezer and your future self will most definitely thank you. They can be rewarmed quickly in the microwave or toaster oven and can be made with a mix of different fillings.

These savory egg muffins can be eaten warm, room temperature, or cold, depending on your mood and how much time you have. They also freeze well if you want to make a double batch to store for a future busy week.

Grab and Go Breakfast Cookies from The Picky Eater

These lightly sweetened breakfast cookies are filled with good things like oats and dried fruit. Yet, they manage to feel like a total treat – and pair exceptionally well with your cup of coffee.

If you happen to have roasted vegetables leftover from dinner, you can use them in place of the sauteed veggies here. That will make these breakfast burritos come together even faster.

The Easiest Homemade Granola from Foodal

While it’s easy enough to pick up a bag of granola from the grocery store, it’s often filled with added sugar. It’s truly just as easy to make it yourself and you can pair it with your favorite yogurt for a quick breakfast.
