As busy and tired students, I’m sure many of us have gotten in the habit of skipping breakfast. We often either trade in the time for extra sleep or are just too tired or lazy to make the effort, but it’s important to make some time to eat something. Having a meal before you start your day will help give you the energy you need to make it through the rest of the day. Try one of these quick and easy breakfast ideas to get you fueled up. You don’t want to miss the most important meal of the day!
Ham and Egg Breakfast Sandwich
This meal is extremely easy to make and takes very little time. Simply cook up an egg however you like it, warm up some ham, toast a bagel and put it all together. You can also switch it up by adding sausage or bacon or by replacing the bagel with bread, a roll, biscuit or even pancakes. This meal provides both the protein and carbs your body needs. If you’re really hungry, just double up on the ingredients and make another sandwich.
This meal took me no more than 10 minutes to make, including prep time. It is the perfect solution for a quick breakfast, and it doesn’t require too much effort. The fluffy eggs and savory ham sandwiched between a toasted cinnamon raison bagel was a tasty meal and a nice change from cereal.
1 egg, cooked however you like
2 slices of ham
French toast is another great breakfast option. To begin, heat a lightly oiled pan over a medium-high flame. While the pan is heating up, beat together eggs, milk, salt, any desired spices and vanilla. Then, dunk each slice of bread in the mixture, soaking both sides. Place the bread in the pan and cook until each side is golden. Enjoy with some syrup, or top it off with some powdered sugar or fruit.
This meal was a lot easier to make than I expected, and it was appetizing. The procedure is simple and it doesn’t take too much time. The bread came out warm and toasty, and the cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla made it deliciously sweet. This is also a perfect breakfast if you have bread that’s going stale; it’s a great way to make it fluffy and delicious again.
6 thick slices of bread
2/3 cup milk
Salt to taste
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg (optional)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
Tomato and Bacon Egg Muffins
This meal is a unique twist on a typical egg dish. It combines favorite breakfast ingredients and flavors into a mini, bite-sized and easy to eat meal. To begin, preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray a muffin pan with cooking spray (if you don’t have a muffin pan, you can use a baking dish and cut into squares after). Cook the bacon over medium-high heat for about five minutes and then cut them into small pieces. Then, mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl and pour the mixture into the muffin cups. Bake for about 15-20 minutes. This meal takes a little bit longer to make than the others, but it is great for sharing and the perfect option for a weekend breakfast.
6 slices of bacon
