UltimateMama gave her kids a protein packed breakfast to go this morning. This quick and easy breakfast sandwich was made in 5 minutes and given a 5 star rating by the girls.  Ultimate Breakfast Sandwich recipe (for one):

– 1 Portuguese roll

– 1 egg (add a tablespoon of milk and scramble)

– Turkey bacon (from yesterday morning)

Just heat up the roll in a pan, place the scrambled egg on the bottom half of the roll, put a strip of turkey bacon on top of the egg, and cover with top of roll!

Enjoy!

UltimateMama’s kids love Acai bowls for breakfast. They are thick, rich, and packed with nutrients.  To make:

-Cut off the top and put it into a blender (it will be slightly frozen)

-Add 1/4 cup of orange juice or almond milk (or more to your liking)

-Add some slices of blueberries, banana, raspberries, blackberries, or strawberries

-Blend

-On the stovetop saute 1/4 cup oats with 1 teaspoon of brown sugar

-In your bowl, pour oats over the Acai mixture

-Enjoy!

UltimateMama’s kids love her delicious (and easy to prepare) Italian bread with Nutella Crepes for breakfast. To do:

-Cut off the crusts of 4 slices of Italian bread and roll each slice a few times to stretch it out

-Spread some Nutella on each slice and add thin strawberries

-Roll up the bread

-Crack one egg and beat with a fork

-Dip the rolled up bread in the egg on all sides

-Cook it on a frying pan over low to medium heat

-Repeat with the other 3 slices of bread

-Remove from heat and sprinkle with cinnamon & sugar (or just brown sugar)

-Enjoy!

UltimateMama will admit that in the past her children were less than enthusiastic about eating a wide variety of fruit in the morning madness rush of breakfast.  After years of washing fruit and placing it into individual, colorful bowls on the breakfast table, UltimateMama realized that much of it was going to waste.  The children were only eating a strawberry here or a blueberry there.  Not exactly a healthy, well-balanced start to the day.

A thought occurred to her–the real trick to make eating fruit fun at any age is PRESENTATION!  UltimateMama realized that placing the already washed, cut, and prepared fruit into colorful, elegant glass trifle bowls created a fancy, holiday feel to the breakfast table.  UltimateMama’s children couldn’t stop smiling….and eating!

UltimateMama recently surprised her children with heart shaped omelets for breakfast with her new Norpro nonstick pancake/egg rings. The result you ask? Nothing short of utter amazement with lots of laughs from her kids. Worth it! Whether you are celebrating the start/end of the school year, birthdays, summer camp send off, academic/athletic achievements, holidays, or really anything, your child will love starting the day with egg (or pancake) hearts for breakfast!

 

UltimateMama’s two little ones surprised her with a clever breakfast in bed funny face that put a smile on her face! Their secret ingredients:

-turkey bacon hair

-blueberry and strawberry eyes

-corn muffin nose

-scrambled egg mouth

Delicious and nutritious!

UltimateMama left breakfast plating up to her girls this morning and was thrilled with the results.  They used eggs, turkey bacon, pumpkin bread, waffles, blueberries, and clementines to create a beautiful little girl.  Nutritious and delightful!

UltimateMama loves serving her children fun breakfast smiles on the weekend – – usually before sporting events.  Recently,  UltimateMama was able to share her morning creativity with her daughter’s friend who slept over.  She was delighted!  All it takes for a quick, easy, and cute breakfast is a little turkey bacon (hair), blueberries (nose), scrambled eggs (eyes), and half a donut (mouth).

 

UltimateMama is known for her big weekend breakfasts.  Many times the meals consist of eggs (various styles), turkey bacon (or chicken sausage), and pancakes.  While UltimateMama loves making meals from scratch, sometimes, due to timing, she needs to take a few shortcuts on the pancake front and calls Williams-Sonoma to the rescue.  The pancake or waffle mixes at Williams-Sonoma can be pricey at approximately $11 per tin(1 lb 8 oz), however, post holidays many of these mixes are 50% off (watch the expiration dates).

This weekend UltimateMama tried the Williams-Sonoma Spiced Pecan Pancake & Waffle Mix and it received rave reviews.  Purchased in early-January for $4.99 it was definitely a fine after holiday treat for all.

 

UltimateMama wants to give you a quick breakfast tip:  try a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on whole wheat bread.  If you want to be fancy, use almond butter and a nice raspberry fruit spread!  You could even add banana slices for extra nutrients.   Your child will love their nutritious snack.  Plus, it is portable!
