Make-Ahead Breakfast Plan for the Week - Ready to give your mornings a break? This prep-ahead breakfast plan will help you eat well and get on with the day.

I’m trying really hard to get us organized for the new school year. This is our last year with all six kids schooling with moi. I’m thinking that if I can get some good systems in place now, then the following years will be better, too, right?

I mentioned the other day the things that I’m doing to get us set up for success. One of them is to have some set meal plans for breakfasts and lunches. I put together a pseudo-make-ahead breakfast plan this weekend, did my shopping, and with the help of some children, got the baking done. I’m hoping that breakfasts will come together easily and quickly this week and in the weeks to come. I plan to repeat breakfasts each week with a little variance in order to keep things simple.

If you’d like to test out the plan this week, too, you can!

(Mostly) Make-ahead Breakfasts

Not every meal in this plan is make-ahead in the truest sense. I wanted a couple days of fresh eggs and such. The plan, however, is very prep-ahead and kid-friendly. My kids are gonna be thrilled, actually. I had to shoo them all away from the granola lest they eat it all before Monday morning.

Here’s the week meal plan for breakfasts:

The plan includes a grocery list and make-ahead instructions as well as step-by-step tips for each day. There are several bulk recipes so if you cook through the plan, you’ll have extras to enjoy on a different day. Yay for extras!

  1. Thanks for this plan. I had most of the supplies on hand, but bought a few I didn’t (some of the granola supplies, an extra bag of flour, English muffins) and made the mixes (2 each of the pancakes and waffles), carrot bread, and granola. I made a chart like your freezer chart with a circle after each item representing one meal’s worth, so we can check off things as we use them and also not forget what we have planned.

    I work at home in the mornings during the time my children are getting ready for school and eating breakfast, so although these recipes don’t mostly represent “instant” breakfasts, I think my 12 year olds can make the pancakes and waffles for the younger ones and be a little more self-sufficient in the mornings. Thanks again.

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
