Baked Eggs (from 1954 Joy of Cooking)
6:30am grease ramekins, break an egg in each, top with cheese, glug of cream
6:35 am eggs in oven at 350; hop in shower
7 am dressed, showered, eggs done. Get the children up!
7:10 am make toast and coffee
8 am hopefully everyone is fed and dressed - leave for preschool
Refrigerator Bran Muffins (I use the More with Less recipe)
Same timeframe as the baked eggs - however, you can store a giant batch of muffin batter in the fridge for 2-3 weeks. So you get the warm house (important on nippy fall mornings before the furnace is Officially On), scent of baking muffins, and nutritious breakfast all for the price of mixing up a batch! Thanks to PunkRizz for the idea.
We like ours with applesauce and a slice of cheese on the side. They're sweet enough that we eat them with no spreads and my children haven't noticed. In fact, Ben calls them cupcakes.
