Hi! I need some ideas....I make breakfast for my fiancé every work day for him to take with. It usually is a breakfast burrito or sandwich. I really hate giving him eggs & cheese every day. Any ideas for a easy to eat, healthy but substantial breakfast??? Thanks in advance!!!

Hi Elle Could you clarify a bit? He's taking this out with him rather than sitting down and eating at home? If I/we can understand this more or less vital point, we might be able to give more accurate responses.

Breakfast you'll have to pick what you consider healthy.

That said, we love the recipe for Breakfast Kolaches wrapped around Johnsonville Better Cheddar Smoked Sausages, or Hot Links, or Jalapeno Smoked Sausage. You can find "healthier" sausage versions. I make this recipe and use 2 pkgs of the sausages for one dozen kolaches. Bake, cool, bag, freeze. I use the nuker to defrost, a few hits of the frozen bun button, then one toast cycle in the toaster oven. So good and easy to go. I sometimes scramble eggs, one at a time, in a small nonstick. Just let it cook flat rather than make curds, then wrap around the sausage before wrapping in the dough.

The night before in a jar, mix up 1/2 cup quick oats, cinnamon to taste, brown sugar to taste, raisins, pecans or walnuts with enough milk to cover. Mix till all in moistened. Cover and refrigerate. The next morning you have porridge. You may have to add a bit more milk and you can also mix and match ingredients but its delicious. Best part? No cooking.

Try making some home-made granola or breakfast bars.

Well, we still don't know exactly where he is eating it, but a thermos for coffee or juice could be considered...these can be used throughout the duration of the day. With the thought that you can "breakfast like a King", I quite agree with Pamela (above) about doing some sort of sausage wrap. You could go from there to some sort of Canadian Bacon (a little less fatty) (some tomato in there?) Some fruit salads? One of my construction guys carries granola bars with him to snack on...which is pretty "healthy", mind, he is a "cancer survivor" Personally, I like the idea of eggs in some sort of bagette or similar, cooked with salsa, peppers, onion, cheese and such, but these are difficult to keep warm...its not the eggs that are going to kill you, its the bacon! My thoughts only.

If he has a way to heat it up, you could send him with some oatmeal--there are slow cooker oatmeal recipes on here that are highly rated. If what you are looking for are portable breakfasts, here are a few ideas:

You may also wish to try yogurt and fruit parfaits, smoothies or heartier pancakes or muffins. Here are a few:

Just use egg whites if he likes the sandwiches with a lower fat cheese choice farmer's cheese maybe.

How about a Steak And Extra Sharp Cheese Breakfast Burrito with some diced jalapeno peppers.

The idea may be to get protein, as opposed fats into that breakfast meal. Such being the thought, how about some sort of fish taco? To keep it "breakfast", how about wrapping it in a pancake or waffle? Just as there are thermoses that keep the het in or the cold maintained, there are heat packs that can keep things "warm", if not exactly "hot", that might be worth a look...

Search Morning Glory Muffins.....healthy and satisfying. Maybe serve with fresh fruit and/or yogurt.
