5 Make-Ahead Breakfast Recipes: Prep a Month’s Worth of Breakfasts in One Day

Updated November 30, 2017
5 Make Ahead Breakfast Recipes
We all say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but these make-ahead breakfasts really walk the walk. Do Future You a solid and fill your fridge and freezer with enough breakfasts to get you through a month (or more!).

5 Make-Ahead Breakfast Recipes

Freezer Friendly Quiche and Sausage Breakfast Sandwiches

Recipe #1: Freezer-Friendly Quiche and Sausage Breakfast Sandwiches

Waking up is hard, and it’s time you finally receive the prize you deserve (that would be the sandwich pictured above). Anyone can make an egg sandwich; visionaries make quiche sandwiches, packed with spinach and feta and stacked with breakfast sausage and even more (Swiss) cheese.

Freezer Friendly Quiche Sandwiches

To reheat: Unwrap from plastic wrap, then wrap in a paper towel, microwave at 70% power for 2-3 minutes, or until the sandwich is heated through.

Overnight Chia Pudding

Recipe #2: Overnight Chia Pudding

Combine four ingredients on Sunday, and be rewarded with pudding for breakfast all week long. We repeat: PUDDING FOR BREAKFAST. The recipe calls for 1 cup of fruit, and you can definitely add more if you like.

Tip: If strawberry’s not your thing (no judgment here), you can use any flavor fruit and spread that you like. This would taste awesome with raspberry.

Quinoa Trail Mix Cookies

Recipe #3: Quinoa Trail Mix Breakfast Cookies

Grab 1 cup of cooked quinoa and make a batch of these sweet and filling breakfast cookies. (Chocolate for breakfast = a very good idea.)

Quinoa Breakfast Cookie Ingredients

How to store: These keep great in the fridge for grab-and-go breakfasts all week. You can even freeze the finished product! Place baked cookies on a sheet pan lined with parchment and pop the whole pan in the freezer. Store frozen cookies in a sealed bag or container, defrost whenever you need a sweet snack or commute-friendly breakfast.

Denver Omelet Breakfast Burritos

Recipe #4: Denver Omelet Breakfast Burritos

Prepare to take the concept of “rise and shine” from myth to reality. Packed with a full dozen eggs and country-style breakfast potatoes, these omelet-filled burritos are pretty much the greatest gift you can give yourself. This recipe yields 8 burritos, but if you like your tortillas slightly less full, you can stretch that to 10. That’s two workweeks’ worth of breakfast!

Denver Omelet Ingredients

To reheat in microwave: Remove frozen burrito from aluminum foil and wrap in paper towel. Microwave on high for 2-3 minutes or until heated through.

Strawberry Yogurt Oatmeal Breakfast Bars

Recipe #5: Strawberry Yogurt Oatmeal Breakfast Bars

Living proof that oatmeal, yogurt and fruit are one of the most wholesome breakfast combos out there. We made this with strawberry yogurt and chopped frozen strawberries, but you can use any fruit flavor profile you desire. (How good would vanilla yogurt + diced peaches be?)


How to store: For easy grab-and-go breakfasts or snacks, wrap each bar in plastic wrap, then stash in the fridge. They’ll keep for up to a week.
