Are mornings a stressful time for you? They can be for me. If you have kids, then you know how much there is to do every morning, and how quickly the time passes before they leave for school. Between packing lunches, getting kids ready, and making yourself presentable to face the drop off crowd, sometimes getting a decent breakfast on the table can be a chore. We have cereal for breakfast more days than we should. Now we love cereal and it can be a quick and easy breakfast option. However, being short on time doesn't mean that you can't add a little variety to your breakfast routine. Each of these 20 Make Ahead Breakfast Recipes can be prepared the night before and heated up the next morning. Some of them use a crock pot and just cook through the night, while others can be refrigerated and then baked in the morning for a stress free meal. Be sure to check out our other family friendly recipes.
