Filling, quick breakfast recipes besides the same old thing?

Published by at 12:38 am under breakfast food

I'm a college student (well, on summer break, but still). My mornings are usually pretty busy, and I generally don't have time to make a big breakfast (ie: eggs, bacon, pancakes). Besides, I get tired of eating the same breakfast foods every morning. Don't get me wrong…I love eggs and bacon. It's just a pain to make all that on a school morning, and I usually tend to get hungry not long after. So, I usually end up running through McDonalds drive-thru. I'm unbelievably sick of that, as well.

So, what I'm wondering is if anyone has any relatively healthy, quick and filling recipes for breakfast besides the same-ole-same-ole. No oatmeal or scrambled-egg sandwiches, please. Gimme some p'zaz to start the day off (and make it snappy, plz, mmmk, thks) *grin*

Since you want something quick different from the norm, I'm assuming you don't feel like making something the night before.

As far as something filling, you need specialized protiens. THe stuff most people think of as a normal breakfast is mostly starches. They are mostly sugar and tend to burn up quickly, which means you burn out. Honestly, when I was having this problem, I just bought some of the Slim Fast Optima shakes, and one would at least hold me until lunch.

If you want an easy recipe, here's the best I can offer, though it is a bit plain.

Wheat Bread, Lettuce, Tomato, sausage, and cheese.

Just toast the bread (You can spread mayo if you want.)
One leaf of lettuce, one tomato slice.
Use ground sausage, (usually comes in a tube of some sort)
Sqeeze out the desired amount of sausage and press into a thin patty. (The thinner it is the quicker it cooks.)
Cook the patty, lay a slice of your favorite cheese on top of the sausage to melt a little.
Place on bread.

It's a great sandwich and you can change out the meat as you'd like.

You could use ham slices, or make tuna salad with apple chunks instead of relish.
You could also trade up the bread for a bagel once in a while. I've tried the sausage and cheese on a blueberry bagel once, and it was surprisingly good.

It's kind of basic, but if you keep sliced tomatoes in a container and already have a head of lettuce, there is almost no work involved in making it. Plus it's surprisingly filling with a glass of milk or orange juice.

It should stick with you for a little longer than a bowl of cereal or some other sugar based item.

    French Toast, especially if you make the batter the night before.

    And you can very easily spice up oatmeal with raisins, craisins, or other dried fruit.

    The night before try taking some yogurt and fresh fruits and mix it all together. Throw it into a bunch of plastic cups and put them all in your freezer. When you wake up take them out, by the time youre done showering they'll be thawed, throw some granola on and head off to class. Surprisingly it works rather well and last till lunchtime.

    Some things I tried were cold cereal with fruit…..or just put some ceral into a bag and grab like a banana or something to go if you are in a big rush…….Others could be breakfast bars, peanut butter on toast with oj (could put into a sports bottle so easy to grab and go) or a banana., pb sandwhich with banana slices in the middle……Just make for sure that you try to at least cover a few of the basic food groups so that you dont get hungry shortly after (such as protein, fruit, and carbs, etc..).

    Open face grilled pepper jack cheese on whole wheat bread. Just put in your toaster oven. Add a piece of fruit and you're good to go.

    Soup is an easy, potentially nutritious and filling breakfast.

    Oh and cold tacos or pizza.

    These rolls are light and airy, but have a nice sausage filling that might tie you thru to lunch time..You can make these ahead of time, store them in the refrigerator and just microwave them when you ready for them.

    I make these for my Aussie husband and they don't stick around here long.

    The pastry dough you can find in any frozen food section of the store.

    You can buy small raspberry yoghurt containers, and eat that and you can eat fresh fruit. Drink Water. Helps with concentration too. Cheap

    Ziplock Bag Omelet.
    All you have to do is put 2 eggs and whatever else you want in it ( ham, cheese,mushrooms, etc. ) shake it up and put it in a pot of rapidly boiling water for EXACTLY 13 minutes. And out comes a perfect omelet.
    Don't use the thin sandwich baggies though. they will burst open.
    Use the strong blue kind.
    I do it quite a bit. My family loves them, and everyone gets exactly what they want in their omelet.
    We've put up to 6 in a big pot. But for one, just use a small one.
    You can have everything cut up and ready the night before.

    2 eggs
    3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
    1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce (e.g. Tabasco™)
    salt and pepper to taste
    4 slices sandwich bread
    6 slices cooked ham
    3 ounces Cheddar cheese, sliced
    1 tablespoon vegetable oil

    DIRECTIONS:
    In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, Worcestershire sauce, and hot pepper sauce. Season with salt and pepper. Pour mixture into a wide, shallow dish.
    Layer 2 slices bread with equal amounts of the sliced ham and cheese; top with remaining bread slices to make sandwiches, and press down to secure filling. Dip sandwiches into egg mixture, and turn to coat both sides.
    Heat the oil in a griddle or frying pan over medium heat. Cook sandwiches 3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and cheese has melted.
