I have a five year old and I make these mini muffin cups of scrambled egg, cheese, and bacon. You just pour the whisked eggs into a greased minimuffin tin (no liners), and top it with shredded cheese and crumbled bacon. Cook at 350 for about 10-15 minutes and you get little eggy "muffins" that you can take to go or just eat one at a time. They are pretty delicious.
Love this thread. My fave is the eggs in the muffin tin.
Just wanted to add - a childhood friend of mine hated breakfast, and breakfast foods. She couldn't stomache anything "heavy" in the morning....so she used to eat soup for breakfast every morning! I love this idea...a nice bean soup with some broth, and maybe a side of bread & butter or muffin. Great for snow days, and good protein and fiber. Plus, soup is soooo good

We make what we call Super Oatmeal:
~Steel cut oats
~Chopped seasonal fruit (right now, we're doing apples, peaches and raisins, usually one Granny Smith and one local variety, depending on fridge contents)
~Chopped nuts (usually almonds, walnuts, pecans)
~2 eggs, whisked lightly
~1-2 tablespoons homemade butter
~1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
~1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
Make the oats as normal. While they're cooking, in a small saucepan, melt the butter. Add spices. Add honey to taste. Stir in fruit and nuts and stir to cover. Let simmer. When the oatmeal is nearly done, gently but thoroughly whisk the eggs into the still cooking oatmeal. Add a bit of milk until desired thickness, then stir in fruit/nut mixture. If desired, you can sprinkle a bit of brown sugar on top.
I always have all of those ingredients on hand, and there's never been a morning when I've actually made enough. :-) My oldest doesn't even like oatmeal, but he'll eat 3 bowls of this.
