Two Easy Breakfast Recipes

The breakfast recipes below are a nice change of pace from your traditional breakfast routine. Each of these recipes can be prepped ahead of time, making the morning rush a bit easier.

These recipes also work wonderfully for those special “breakfast for dinner” nights.

Breakfast Casserole Recipe

Breakfast casseroles are often reserved for the holidays, due to their easy preparation and delicious results. However, why not break the mold and serve a breakfast casserole during the week?


  1. Spray your slow cooker with a non stick cooking spray.

  2. Slice the ham into bite size pieces or strips.

  3. Chop the bell peppers.

  4. In a large bowl, combine the eggs, ham, cheese, mushrooms, and bell

  5. Place a thin layer of hash browns in your slow cooker.

  6. Pour a layer of egg mixture of hash browns.

  7. Add remaining hash browns.

  8. Top with remaining egg mixture.

  9. Cook on low eight to ten hours.
This casserole can also be cooked in the oven. Simply layer as directed, and bake at 350 degrees for thirty to thirty five minutes.

Ham and Cheese Omelet Recipe

The combination of ham and cheese is one that many kids adore. Add some eggs, cheese, and even a veggie or two for this healthy and delicious breakfast.


  1. Place all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.

  2. Store in the refigerator overnight or until ready to cook.

  3. Spray a pan with a non stick cooking spray.

  4. Heat the pan over medium heat.

  5. Pour the omelet mixture in once the pan is hot.

  6. Let sit for five to seven minutes.

  7. Spray a spatula with a non stick cooking spray.

  8. Gently fold one half of the omelet over the other half, creating a half moon shape (or smiley face)

  9. Turn the stove down to low heat, and cook for an additional five minutes, or until the egg mixture is cooked through.

  10. If the omelet ends up going all over the place, simply scramble the mixture unit the eggs are cooked through. You can tell the kids that you've created a new recipe called a Scromlet—scrambled eggs and an omelet combined!
