3 Quick Easy, I Don't Have to Turn on My Stove Breakfast Ideas

With temps nearing 90 degrees by 8 in the morning, I shriek at the thought of turning on my stove. Of course I want to make sure my family has a hearty breakfast but there'll be no biscuits baking in my kitchen this Summer.  Our microwave, however, is getting one heckuva a workout thanks to these tasty breakfast dishes.  Be forewarned though, you may want to coat your mug or ramekin with some non-stick spray or butter before adding ingredients as clean up may require some soaking and scrubbing.

I love omelettes and the kids love creating omelettes.  It's a delicious way to get rid of those last couple slices of ham or turkey, that last little sprinkle of cheese and that last smidgen of diced veggies or that one teeny, weeny wedge of onion.  

Omelette in a Mug

    2 eggs
    1 tbsp. milk or water
    Tbsp or two of your favorite toppings: cheese, ham, bacon, etc.

    1.  Crack eggs into cup and stir in milk/water and your favorite toppings. Mix well.
    2.  Microwave 2 minutes or until eggs set.

Pancakes in a Mug
    ½ c. complete pancake mix
    ¼ c. water

    1.  Pour pancake mix into a microwave safe mug and stir in water. There will be 
         a few lumps but that's okay. Heat in microwave on High for 1 minute.
    2.  Drizzle with syrup and serve.

It's not the prettiest pancake but it's a pancake nonetheless.  You can enjoy in your mug or slide onto a plate.

Smoothie Shake-ups

    1 c. yogurt (plain or your favorite 8 oz. flavored yogurt cup)
    ½ c. ice cubes
    2 tsp. vanilla extract
    1 cup fresh OR frozen fruit

    1.  Pour all ingredients into a blender and blend till smooth (approx.. 20-30 seconds)
    2.  Pour into 2 glasses.

What are some of your tried and true quick breakfast ideas?  Let me know leave a comment below.

I would most definitely love to try one of the three Quick and Easy Don't Have to Turn on My Stove Breakfast Ideas. I will be trying at least one over the holiday weekend.

We love fruit smoothies and I like to freeze the fruit and forego the ice cubes. Almond milk ads some extra flavor.
