Couldn’t we all use more time in the morning? That’s why I asked Chef Laura Lea to share her favorite sweet & savory make-ahead breakfast recipes on the very first episode of The Sami Cone Show.
Both of these make-ahead breakfast ideas are as nutritious as they are nutritious. The overnight oats can be made the night before (exactly as the title implies). The Breakfast Wraps can be frozen after assembled and then reheated when you’re ready for them in the morning.
Sweet Make-Ahead Breakfast: Pumpkin Gingersnap Overnight Oats
If you’re looking for a naturally sweet and easy make-ahead breakfast, try Laura Lea’s Pumpkin Gingersnap Overnight Oats recipe. It’s naturally dairy-free and can be gluten-free if you get gluten-free oats (we get ours from Trader Joe’s). Watch our segment to learn about all the other easy swaps you can make to satisfy your family’s taste buds.
Savory Make-Ahead Breakfast: Easy Eggy Breakfast Wraps
You’d think after cooking for as long as I have, I would have known about this trick. But no! It took having Laura Lea come on my show to learn. That’s right, these breakfast wraps are not only make-ahead, but they’re freezer-friendly.
What I love about these wraps is that not only can your kids help you make them, they are also easily customizable for each person in your family.
- 6 large eggs
- 1/2 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, plus more to taste
- 1/4 teaspoon paprika
- 1/4 teaspoon onion poder
- 1 tablespoon butter, plus more for wraps (optional)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 8 ounce bag organic baby spinach
- 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
- Optional: high-quality bacon or sausage or another protein of choice
- 4 large sprouted wraps (I like Ezekiel or Alvarado Street Bakery Brand; can also use a GF wrap)
If you don’t already own Laura Lea’s cookbook, do yourself a favor and order one now (can you see all the post-it notes and dog-eared pages in my copy???)
