These easy make ahead breakfast ideas are perfect for busy moms (who want to save money on groceries).

Some days I wonder if my teenage boys ever eat breakfast at all.

Most of the time, they are running out the door for school, doing everything at the last minute.

In fact, I’ve noticed that the only time they for sure grab some food on their way out the door is when I’ve made something they like that’s easy to grab and go.

We’re feeding 6 kids here, including 3 teenage boys.  So you can bet that I look for foods that:

  1. save money on the grocery bill
  2. are reasonably healthy
  3. come with a simple (easy!) recipe

And these foods here? They meet all those requirements!
