Breakfast is, by far, my most favorite meal of the day. They say it’s the most important one, and if I could have my choice, I’d have the most important one at least three times a day. Yes. I would totally eat breakfast foods for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And I often do. Cereal for dinner? Why not? Eggs for lunch? Don’t mind if I do! Waffles for an afternoon snack? Of course!

They are just not on the same wavelength as I am. They like breakfast, they just don’t like like it, if you catch my drift. Imagine, they only want to eat it in the morning! It’s like I don’t even know them…

You guys, it may have taken me a few years, but I kind of have got breakfast DOWN.  Because I am a creature of habit, and usually in a gigantic hurry to hustle the children out the door, it’s all Mini-wheats and coffee for me. Easy Peasy, and of course, delicious. My kids, however, are not creatures of habit, and require a little bit more creativity. My older daughter Emily, for instance, is not a fan of dairy products. I KNOW, right? Who is this kid, and where does she come from? So, no dairy for her. So, quick morning because tricky. Bagels and lox. Crackers and hummus. Eggs over medium. Grapefruit. Cinnamon toast. Depending on time and availability, she usually has one of these. Joshua and Isabella are less picky, and usually opt for cereal or yogurt or fruit. The two of them, obviously, are big fans of dairy.

Weekends are a different beast altogether. Because those mornings are more relaxed and there are usually no alarm clocks or school uniforms or packing lunches or racing involved, I tend to try to celebrate this ability for a laid-back morning with coffee (for me) and donuts (for them). Well, maybe the donuts are for me too. It’s our cheat day, and I’d like to think we deserve one. And if it’s not donuts, it’s something over-the-top, like biscuits and gravy and turkey bacon and all the lovely things my southern blood likes to eat. Or leftover challah french toast. Or pink chocolate-chip pancakes.

No. I’m not kidding.

WHAT? They were delicious. In fact, I may have them for dinner tonight.

  1. During the week it’s rushed since I work full time – so it’s granola bars/muffins/cereal. On the weekends I love to make big breakfasts! We make chocolate chip pancakes, bacon, eggs, hashbrowns, etc :)

  2. I’m too lazy to make breakfast at home, so I usually bring my English muffin and cream cheese to work with me and use the toaster here.

  3. Depends on the day, during the week, I eat a granola bar at work. Sometimes I mix it up and bring in a yogurt.

    For the weekend, it is typically anything from cereal to eggs to pancakes to a baked goodie from the farmers market.

    Now we get very elborate when we make breakfast for dinner…fancy omlets, pancakes, french toast or any combo.

  6. My morning breakfast consists of one of the following:
    - Honey Nut Cheerios & Light Vanilla Soy Milk
    - Frosted Strawberry Pop Tarts (on really hectic mornings… like the ones where the puppy feels the need to inspect every patch of grass in the neighborhood before she does her business)
    - Protein Shake (generally egg white protein, frozen banana & strawberries, non fat Greek yogurt, and coconut water)

  7. I am a big breakfast fan/freak. I make pinwheel waffles of all colors and pancakes of of shape size, flavor and size. One of my favorite inventions is crossiant filled with cream cheese and fruit. I make my own cereal bars for treats when the neighborhood comes. My house is the bus stop, and so around 15 kids grab something 4 or 5 days a week here, I found budget breakfasts can be healthy and home made. The night before trick is often the best.

  14. Not gonna lie, my favorite breakfast is leftover cold pizza – ham and pineapple. Mmm. I’m actually not a fan of making breakfast… so any leftovers will do! However, I am also in love with Kashi products, so I usually manage to have the most important meal of the day. Does it still count as breakfast when you sometimes wake up at 11??

    for the other three wonderful people over here, there is cereal with fruit (we always have about 4-6 boxes on the go), or homemade waffles (i make big batches and freeze them) with REAL maple syrup and fruit, or toast with peanut butter, or yogurt, or scrambled eggs. hey, i’m a short order cook around here so whatever they ask for they get. for me it’s just coffee.

  43. My house looks a little hairy in the morning, but we all manage to get a little nutrition in the midst of madness. I opt for cereal and fruit, while my 3 & 5 year olds go for waffles or english muffins and fruit. Time and patience permitting, they have cereal too, followed by a good dustbuster workout ;o)

  44. I loooove cereal, but I only have time to enjoy it on the weekends – the weekdays are for toasting a bagel and grabbing some oj to go on the way to work. On home days, it’s usually a bagel or some toast – for me and the kids. Although my one son LOVES oatmeal!

  53. Something quick, like cereal or a banana with peanut butter or cottage cheese and fruit. I’m a great cook, but not so good with breakfast for some reason, so sometimes my fiance will make me one of his killer omelettes.

However, ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS my first choice would be a big brownie or some other such delicious thick baked good with a big ole cup o’ joe.

Then when they are all set, I will sneak in a small breakfast for myself before getting them ready for the day. Thanks so much for hosting this giveaway!

  97. I work 2nd shift so I sometimes don’t go to bed until 3am. Needless to say, mornings consist of my husband calling and yelling into the answering machine to wake me up so I can get our daughter up and going for school…then I sit on the couch in a stupor until she leaves…it’s cereal all the way for breakfast because if I try to use the stove, I’d set the house on fire, for sure.

    I have a huge pet peeve about eating before school..if she skips breakfast I feel like the world’s worst mommy so there’s a lot of me yelling to “EAT SOMETHING” in the morning as she’s trying to get ready. Even a granola bar eases my mom-guilt.

I let the little one eat a yogurt as soon as he gets up and then when the older one is ready, I’ll make them bowl of cereal, oatmeal, or a toasted English muffin. On the weekends, I try to do a nice family breakfast of pancakes or eggs and bacon.

  99. Mornings here are chaotic so breakfast is usually cereal and toast or oatmeal and toast during the week and eggs on the weekend!

  100. I am a good cook / baker, etc. but I make the WORST pancakes. I am pretty impressed with your pink ones!

    My kids eat breakfast but I admit that I don’t – I am trying to get in the habit but I am just not hungry first thing in the morning.

    my kids love it all – cereal, oatmeal, waffles, bacon and eggs.

  103. My 2 little grandsons arrive at my house every weekday at 6:30 AM. I feed both a bowl of cereal and toast and jelly usually before putting the 2 year old back to bed, and taking the 5 year old to school.

  104. Weekdays, cold cereal and fruit is all we have time for, but on the weekends, my dear wife gets up early to bake muffins or make pancakes. I love waking up to freshly baked yummy goodies.

  105. There are days when I make bacon and eggs, or pancakes, mostly just toast. But most days, my kids beat me out of bed and have some cereal in them before I even open my eyes! Then I grab something for myself quick and we run out the door!

  106. Most days, we eat something quick and easy like toast or cereal because we are usually headed out the door for work or some other activity. On the days when we don’t have anything going on, I like to make waffles or egg and cheese English muffin sandwiches.

  107. Our typical family breakfast routine consists of my husband coming home at 7am from his graveyard shift and cooking us a delicious hot breakfast usually pancakes or eggs. On the days that he runs late, sometimes he will pick us up a hot breakfast to go or we just fend for ourselves and hit the cereal and milk.

  108. oh, I just had to laugh at that picture! Breakfast has never looked like that at our house (although I’m sure my kids would’ve loved them)! On weekdays, my husband and kids get their own breakfast (cereal or PopTarts). If we have time on the weekend, we cook.

  115. Breakfast isn’t too bad here. The kids generally eat it fast enough to suit me when we’re running late. Of course, it is summer. School starts in a few weeks and our breakfast routine is definitely going to change.

  116. I have coffee and a little something sweet when I first wake up. Maybe a danish, or even a cookie or brownie. I’m not a morning person and I need to bribe myself with a treat to get out of bed, LOL! Then I check my emails and have a sensible breakfast a little later, like cereal or a banana and orange juice. Then I shower and get ready for work.

  117. I work 1st shift so i’m usually up and out the door before anyone is up. Hubby takes care of breakfast for the kids. Usually something quick on the weekdays like cereal or pop tarts. I don’t usually eat breakfast too early in the morning. On the weekends however we try to have a big family breakfast together.

  119. I have a 6 month old. So, he usually helps me make my breakfast (a bowl of cereal or waffles). Then we heat up his (usually rice cereal, applesauce or a veggie puree). Then we both sit down at the table and eat together!

  120. I prefer cereal for myself in the mornings; my grandkids all have different preferences for breakfast…one has a scrambled egg plus fruit; I keep pancakes frozen in the refrigerator; and all of them like my oven cinnamon toast. But I don’t have the responsibility of getting them off to school each day etc and all but the two youngest can get their own breakfasts and they have siblings who can make breakfast for them.

  125. Everyone is up and about at different times so we all have our own routines. Mine involves feeding all the animals as I’m first up and then relaxing with coffee. I don’t eat until I get to work and usually then have a bagel with cream cheese. No milk available at the office cafeteria so no cereal.

  129. Well… I’m used to it so I don’t notice, but when my parents are here, they run into the guest room when we come down for breakfast, and stay there until the chaos is over. Non-morning people should not have to get non-morning children to the school bus at 6:33 AM :-)

  134. Our typical morning routine is that I wake up first with the baby and make her and me oatmeal. THen our two older daughters wake up and make themselves Eggos and later my son and husband wake up last and have bowls of cereal. We never eat breakfast together but we always eat dinner as a family.

  136. My son’s typical breatfast is yogurt, fruit and a poptart, or McDonald’s. My morning breakast is 2 sausage and egg burritos from McDonald’s every morning, and about 4-5 cups of coffee :)

    On the weekends, if he’s home I may make breakfast (pancakes or omlettes) or we’ll go out for brunch @ Cracker Barrel :)

  140. I need to get a morning routine! I always say that I am going to make myself breakfast in the morning, but I usually don’t feel hungry by the time I leave my house. But that is a big mistake because I start feeling hungry on my one hour drive to work so I end up stopping at a fast food place for some greasy foods that my body really doesn’t need. I need to be more prepared and pack a healthy breakfast that I can eat in the car on my way to work.
