It’s way too easy to get into a breakfast rut. You find something simple that doesn’t take a ton of time or ingredients, and you stick to it until you’re totally burnt out. If this feels like your family right now, it’s time to brighten up mornings around your house. There are plenty of options for fun family breakfast ideas that won’t take up precious morning hours!
Here’s a mixture of some savory and sweet ideas that also make great healthy meals for picky eaters.
1. Breakfast Quesadillas
There’s no way your family will be bored with this easy family breakfast idea. Whip up some scrambled eggs as the main filling for your quesadillas, and let your family build the rest with toppings like veggies, beans, cheese and salsa. Don’t forget to top your quesadilla with avocado!
2. Sweet Potato Egg Cups
This is one of the easiest vegetarian meals you can make for family breakfast. We love egg cups because they make minimal mess, and they’re perfect for small hands. With a base made of shredded sweet potato, this family breakfast idea sneaks in a veggie, too!
3. Berry French Toast Casserole
Win your kids over at family meal time with this breakfast treat. They won’t be able to resist running to the kitchen when they smell what you’ve got baking! The recipe is super simple too, making it a win for everyone.
4. Breakfast Pizza
You read that right - pizza for breakfast! You can make this fun family breakfast idea savory or sweet. For a savory pizza, use naan, flatbread, or even cauliflower crust and toppings like egg, black bean, cheese and veggies. For a sweet pizza, use a graham cracker crust topped with Greek yogurt, fruit and maybe a drizzle of honey or a sprinkle of cinnamon.
5. Smoothie Bowls
This is a super fun idea for any parents trying to figure out how to get kids to eat in the morning. It’s totally normal for kids’ appetites to fluctuate as they grow and develop. So, if your kids don’t always seem hungry, don’t stress! Offer something light and fun like a smoothie bowl that they can customize with their serving size and toppings they love.
6. Veggie Frittata
Frittatas are a wonderfully easy family breakfast idea. Making one can feed the whole family and only requires one pan. This dish is also super versatile. Fill your frittata with veggies, cheese (feta is our fav), and protein.
7. Baked Oatmeal
This is the most satisfying choice for cooler fall weather. One pan can feed the whole family, making it a great family breakfast idea. We also love it because oats are a great source of fiber for kids. On super busy mornings when you don’t have time to bake oatmeal, Snack Poppers are a perfect grab and go breakfast!
8. Make Ahead Egg Sandwiches
Any breakfast that you can make ahead will make mornings easy and bright. To prepare some egg sandwiches for your family, mix up some eggs with milk, salt and pepper, and whatever veggies or meats you like. Pour it all into a greased baking sheet and bake it until the eggs are just set. Then, just use a cookie or biscuit cutter to cut out egg circles to stack on an English muffin or bagel. Top with some cheese if you want, wrap them up, and refrigerate (or freeze).
