Breakfast Ideas for Busy Moms


Breakfast is not only important but one of my favorite meals. Sometimes we just don’t have the time to put as much effort as we’d like so here are 5 really quick, simple, delicious recipes that take barely any time to whip up.

1. Sausage Cream Cheese Crescents

You will need:
▫ 2 cans of crescent rolls
▫ 1lb breakfast sausage, browned and drained. (I cook mine the night before so it’s faster putting together in the morning.)
▫8oz cream cheese, softened.

Preheat oven to 375°. Unroll one can of crescent rolls and cover the bottom of a 13×9 glass pan, sealing perforations. Brown and drain sausage, then mix in cream cheese with sausage over medium. Once melted good spread mixture on layer of crescent rolls. You can add shredded cheddar cheese to top but I find the cream cheese to be plenty! Unroll other can for top layer, sealing perforations. Bake for 20 minutes and you’re done. It is so, so easy and so, so good.

2. Slow Cooker French Toast

You will need:
▫1 loaf of bread, sliced or diced ( I dice mine.)
▫6 eggs
▫2 cups milk
▫½ tsp of cinnamon


▫¼ cup butter
▫½ cup firmly packed brown sugar
▫1 tsp cinnamon
▫½ cup chopped pecans -optional
▫Dash of nutmeg

Whisk together eggs, milk, cinnamon, and pour over diced bread in a large bowl. Let it soak overnight, or for at least 4 hours in the fridge. Spray the inside of the crock pot with non cooking spray. Pour in soaked bread mixture. In a small bowl, mix together butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, pecans, and nutmeg and crumble over the top of the bread mixture. Cover and cook on low for 4 hours or on high for 2 hours.

3. Breakfast Casserole

The great thing about this one is you can cook this in the crock pot over night or bake in the oven for an hour !

You will need:
▫12 eggs
▫1 (32-ounce) bag frozen hash browns
▫1 lb bacon, cut into small pieces, cooked and drained.
▫½ cup of chopped onion
▫¾ lb shredded cheddar cheese
▫1 cup of milk
▫½ tsp dry mustard

Spray with non cooking spray then layer the ingredients in your crock pot. Start with ½ of the hash browns on the bottom, followed by ½ of the bacon, ½ of the onions, and ½ of the cheese. Then layer in the rest of the hash browns, bacon, onions, and cheese. Beat the eggs, milk, mustard, salt, and pepper together. Pour this over the whole mixture. Cook on low for 10 to 12 hours OR you can do one layer in 13×9 baking dish at 350° for 1 hour.

4. Homemade Chocolate Gravy, (over biscuits )

You will need:
▫1/2 cup cocoa
▫3 tbs all-purpose flour
▫3/4 cup white sugar
▫2 cups milk
▫1 tbs butter, softened
▫2 tsps vanilla
▫1/4 tsp of salt

Whisk the cocoa, flour, salt, and sugar together in a bowl until there are no lumps. Pour the milk into the mixture and whisk until well incorporated. Transfer the mixture to a saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until its consistency is similar to gravy, 7 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir the butter and vanilla into the mixture until the butter is melted. Serve immediately over biscuits. I just use the butter flaky canned biscuits.

And last but not least

5. A Texas Breakfast Casserole

You will need:
▫I can of crescent dinner rolls
▫1 lb of sausage, cooked and drained.( You can also use cooked, crumbled bacon or bite-sized pieces of ham )**
▫1 cup of sliced mushrooms
▫6 eggs, beaten
▫1 can of cream of onion soup

Line a 13×9 dish with rolls, sealing perforations. Cover with sausage, mushrooms, and half of the cheese. Mix eggs with the soup and pour over casserole. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top. Chill overnight and just bake the next morning at 350° for 1 hour.

Or you can just bust open a can of cinnamon rolls or put bacon in the microwave to have with cereal. 😉
