Who says you can’t have fun eating breakfast! These are some great ideas to make breakfast time more interesting, or to enjoy breakfast food anytime of the day!
What you need: leftover pancakes and microwavable sausage links
What you do: Next time you make a batch of pancakes double the recipe, and refrigerate or freeze the extras! The make great snacks for kids! Have the kids take a thawed sausage link and wrap a package around the outside and secure with a toothpick. Microwave each one for 30 seconds (time may vary depending on your microwave, experiment until you get it right). Give the kids a small bowl of syrup for dipping and just be sure to remove the toothpicks before eating!
What you need: vanilla yogurt, fruit of your choice, granola and see through glass cups.
What you do: Kids love to eat fancy foods, and these healthy parfaits make a great fancy treat. Allow the kids to layer the ingredients in a see through cup. For an extra flair, you can add a maraschino cherry on top!
Peanut Butter Granola~
What you need: 1/3 cup peanut butter, 1/3 cup honey and 3 cups of uncooked oatmeal.
What you do: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine peanut butter and honey and melt in the microwave. Add oatmeal and stir until moist. Spread evenly on a baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes. Stir the granola and spread evenly again, then bake an additional 5 minutes. This granola burns easily, so towards the end of the cooking time, you will want to keep a close eye on it! And just a note, this granola tastes wonderful in the parfaits mentioned above!
