Easy breakfast recipes that are kid-friendly are a must in home daycare. The typical daycare has children arriving at various times and school buses to get ready for.
Use the following easy breakfast recipes in your home daycare to create simple yet interesting meals the kids will love.
“Dipper” French Toast
You will need:
Cut each slice of bread into 4-5 even sticks. Mix together the milk and eggs, add cinnamon and sugar and mix again.
Dip bread sticks into the egg mixture and grill on a buttered skillet over medium-high heat. Cook until both sides are golden brown and let cool.
Put syrup into small cups and let the kids dip.
Use clear plastic cups to layer yogurt, then granola and the fruit of your choice. Strawberries, blueberries or peaches work well. Repeat layers for a tasty breakfast treat.
Oatmeal Carrot Muffins
Make this easy breakfast recipe the night before. Serve with fresh fruit for a simple breakfast.
Add 1 cup of quick cooking oats and 1 cup of grated carrots. Mix well.
Use paper baking cups to line a muffin pan. Spoon mixture into the cups, fill about 2/3 full. Bake for 25 minutes at 375 degrees.
*Can be served warm or cold.
Strawberry Cream Cheese Toast
Mash ¼ cup fresh strawberries in a bowl until “pureed”. Add one or two tablespoons of sugar and 4 ounces of cream cheese. Mix until the mixture turns pink.
Serve on toast or English Muffins halves.
*For a different taste, try using blueberries or blackberries.
Make oatmeal according to package directions, except… use blueberry juice (Ocean Spray makes a delicious juice) instead of water. Add fresh blueberries during the cooking process.
“Fruity Face” Cereal
This is one of those truly easy breakfast recipes. To make a plain bowl of cereal less bland and include some fruit in your breakfast, try this neat idea. Pour cereal (like Kix or Cheerios) into a bowl. Use a combination of fruit to make faces in the cereal before adding milk.
*You can use peaches, pears, strawberries, blueberries, apple, pineapple, or banana slices.
*Raisins and mini marshmallows can be used too.
These are tasty pancakes especially when served with syrup and fresh fruit.
Start with 1 cup of egg substitute. Add two cups of plain nonfat yogurt.
Combine 1 cup of flour, ¼ teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon baking soda. Combine dry ingredients with the egg and yogurt mixture. Cook on a medium low griddle. Turn over when the top side is bubbly.
Easy Breakfast Casserole
Remove crusts from 12 slices of bread, and tear the bread into small pieces. Place enough bread in the bottom of a 9 X 13 baking dish to form a thin layer. Reserve the rest of the bread for the topping.
Over the layer of bread, add:
Pour the milk/egg mixture over the layers in the baking dish.
Toss remaining bread pieces with a tablespoon of melted butter and sprinkle over casserole.
Bake about 45 minutes at 325 degrees. Let cool. Cut into squares.
