With the winter weather giving us a chill, what better way to start off the weekend than with a warm and hearty breakfast the kids will love? Make Saturday and Sunday mornings extra-special with delicious breakfast meals that fill everyone up and never let you down.
These kid-friendly meals are easy to prepare and even easier to eat. The comfort of a warm meal on a cold winter’s day makes getting out from under the covers worth every bite. School day morning breakfasts are always a rush, but these weekend meals are perfect for sitting at the kitchen table for a while with family as you enjoy a nourishing meal together.
Here are two warm and tasty weekend breakfast recipes that will have everyone asking for seconds. You will love preparing them for your family and seeing their faces light up with the very first bite!
Egg in a Pancake
Kids love eggs and pancakes, so why not combine the two breakfast favorites for an adorable-looking dish that tastes as good as it looks? Here’s how to whip up this simple breakfast dish:
Makes 4 servings
8 pre-made frozen pancakes
8 medium eggs
1 cup maple syrup
Non-stick cooking spray
Thaw out the pancakes and set them out on a large cooking sheet sprayed with non-stick spray. Use a round 1 ½ inch diameter cookie cutter to pop out a round circle in the middle of each pancake and save the removed pieces. Inside each hole, crack an egg. Place in the oven pre-set at 300 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until the egg sets. Serve with the cut-out piece of pancake on top of the egg with maple syrup on the side. You can also serve with ketchup for a savory option. Delish!
Warm Granola with Steamed Milk
We’re used to eating granola at room temperature as cereal or mixed into yogurt, but make yours fresh and serve warm right from the oven. The texture is delightful, and the crunch and chew make for an interesting take to the breakfast staple. Serve with steamed milk for a comfort food that’s sweet and satisfying.
Makes 4 servings
3 cups rolled oats
¾ cup honey
¼ cup molasses
¼ cup dark brown sugar
¼ cup dried cranberries
¼ cup golden raisins
¼ cup chopped pecans
¼ cup slivered almonds
2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
½ stick of butter
4 cups milk, steamed
Place all ingredients (aside from the butter) in a large mixing bowl. Melt the butter and mix into the other ingredients until everything is well-coated and combined. Pour the mixture onto a cooking sheet and spread evenly. Bake in the oven at a pre-set 325 degrees for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Spoon into bowls and pour the steamed milk over top. Enjoy!
The kids will look forward to their weekend breakfast more than ever thanks to these warm and wonderful winter recipes. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so make it count!
