EASY TRES BREAKFAST IDEAS

06/10/19 | Blog Recipes

 

Weekend mornings are all about that brunch and mimosa life, but when it comes to weekdays, we tend to find ourselves grabbing anything that looks mildly edible on our way out the front door. We are all guilty of disrespecting the most important meal of the day from time to time, so we embarked on a mission to put an end to the breakfast rut, and we’ve compiled some recipes that are so easy and delicious that you’ll break up with stale cereal bars for good this time.

 

This first dish is a great make-ahead meal since it holds up well in the freezer. We love multiplying this recipe for larger batches so we can grab ‘em on our way out the door all week long.

Customizable and easily prepared ahead of time, you can’t make a list of easy breakfast ideas without the almighty breakfast burrito. And with the addition of our Enchilada Skillet Sauce, you can be sure they’ll still pack a flavor punch when you pull them out of the freezer.
