50+ Big-Batch Breakfasts You Can Make Ahead of Time
Looking for ways to make it a sustained habit to eat a good breakfast on the regular, but are stumped on ways to make it a reality? There’s a solution for it and it comes down to what you can make ahead of time. We’re talking low-effort, big-impact breakfasts that deliver a week of meals (sometimes more!), that you can whip together in a single cooking session.
Finding breakfast ideas you actually look forward to eating and that can be made in advance takes the guesswork out of what to make first thing in the morning and has to the potential to save lots of time. If you like things on the sweeter side, try DIY yogurt cups, breakfast pops, breakfast baked goods (you know, the ones that will actually keep you full!), or your preferred flavor of overnight oats. Or, if you prefer a savory breakfast, try a veggie frittata, freezer-friendly breakfast sandwiches and burritos, or even savory toaster tarts.
To help you start mornings off on the right note, here are 50+ big-batch breakfasts you can make ahead.
Eggs and Egg Sandwiches
Eggs are a workhorse ingredient when it comes to big-batch breakfasts. Turn them into casseroles, frittatas, and sandwiches and you won’t be disappointed.
Oatmeal and Smoothies
If you’re looking for a hearty way to start your day, oatmeal will never fail you. Though we also love smoothies when we’re craving something that’s both satisfying and refreshing.
Other Savory Breakfast Ideas
Beyond eggs, polenta and pancakes can be big batched for breakfast, too. So can savory toaster tarts.
Other Sweet Breakfast Ideas
Whether it’s DIY yogurt parfaits or no-bake granola bars, these recipes will satisfy your morning sweet tooth without sacrificing wholesomeness.
