My kids are getting ready to head back to school and I’m trying to come up with some fantastic easy kids breakfast ideas for school mornings as both have now gone off cereal. These simple savoury “muffins” are great to fill them up all the way to lunch. So here you go our easy school morning breakfast recipe for some hash brown muffins.
School Morning Breakfast Ideas
Many school mornings it’s a “grab and go” breakfast on the way to the bus stop for the kids and things that can be handheld are ideal.
Muffins are great that way and when I know that they have a busy day with sports or clubs then savoury is the way to go to keep them filled up till lunchtime and beyond.
These hashbrown muffins take just 10 minutes to throw together and then I cook them whilst I shower ready to hand out as the kids make their way downstairs. It surprises me how quickly they disappear and if I’m left with a few after they have left I am surprised.
These hashbrown muffins are a mix of bacon and cheese as well as hashbrowns. Mixed with eggs they then hold their shape and make the perfect breakfast for school mornings.
Tips to Make your School Breakfast Muffins Easier
To make it easier in the morning, and great for adding to salads and baked potatoes for lunch and dinner too. I batch cook some bacon on the weekend, drain the grease let it cool, and break up. Then place in an airtight container in the fridge and bring out as wanted.
It makes it really easy to prepare these without having to cook the bacon first thing on a morning and as we use frozen hashbrowns it doesn’t matter that it is cold.
I also shred the hashbrowns in the food processor and then store them in the freezer and bring them out as needed as well (once you make this a couple of times you’ll learn how much of your bowl is full of each ingredient and can throw it together in no time).
