10 Easy Breakfast Recipes You Can Make Ahead


Our weekday breakfast routine has become a little stale recently, so I’ve been on the hunt for a few good recipes to shake things up a bit around here.

On the weekends my husband and I love making big family breakfasts, but during the week time is at a premium for us as it is for most busy families.

Lately I’ve been trying to switch things up a bit by prepping a few easy breakfast recipes for the week ahead – here are a few of my favorites!
