1/20 ramblings – breakfast

I should have used this for my B post earlier this week, but it didn’t occur to me then.
We are having breakfast troubles. Cereal everyday for my family of nine is not cost effective. We save it for weekends. For years we have been eating bagels for breakfast, but now their prices are rising as well.
What other options are there that are easy enough for a seven year old to make, but filling enough for teenage boys?
My thoughts: premade waffles, instant oatmeal, and eggs – that’s it. I’m clueluess.
HELP!  🙂

  1. Breakfast is a great B word. I’d probably go with the oatmeal. It’s quick, reasonably priced, filling, and you can add things to make it even better for you. (Nuts, dried fruit etc.) I love it and have it fairly often (especially in the winter), although I usually fix the old-fashioned type instead of the instant. (Still takes only a couple of minutes in the microwave)

  2. Biscuits and sausage gravy. Made ahead, if necessary, and simply reheated. Very filling and loved by teenage boys.
    Grits are an alternative to oatmeal. If they’ll eat yogurt, it’s very cost-effective to make it in the crockpot and then add fruit or honey to sweeten it up.
