Finding easy breakfast recipes on busy school mornings is not easy. I admit to grabbing a box of cold cereal more often than not when I am pressed for time. I know that cold cereal isn’t the best choice for the kids before school but who has time to make a hot breakfast? I don’t if I am going to get the out the door on time for the school bus. Of course, easy breakfast recipes can easily be used as easy dinner recipes on nights when you don’t have a lot of time. We do breakfast for dinner once a week or so. It’s a great way to keep your grocery budget in check.
Easy Breakfast Recipes
One of the great things about this recipe is that you can use any sort of leftover that you have as an add in. If you have leftover peppers, onions, mushrooms, asparagus, broccoli, toss that in. If you have leftover bacon, sausage, or other meat, toss that in. If you are not following the Paleo Diet, you can add in cheese as well.
Grease your muffin tins well. I use an organic olive oil spray. Then sprinkle in a few additions based on what you have on hand. Leftover meat and vegetables work well in this recipe.
Break an egg into each muffin tin. Add salt and pepper to taste. Put in a preheated oven and bake for about 12 minutes. I plan two egg cups per person unless you are feeding a 16 year old with an appetite like a line backer. Then I plan four eggs. Adjust quantities as needed for your family.
- 1 dozen eggs

I used local, natural turkey sausage and local cage free eggs. I prefer to keep the food we eat as local, natural and/or organic as possible for health and environmental reasons. If I had leftover veggies or it was summer and I had fresh veggies in the garden, I would have added some fresh spinach to it. If you have a non-Paleo person enjoying breakfast with you, add a side of whole wheat toast.
