Even if most of your family is still home doing virtual learning or working from home, you won’t ever regret having food prepared ahead of time for breakfast. I have found that different people in my home have different breakfast preferences, so having a few options available that are ready means less time for me in the kitchen when I’d rather be drinking a cup of hot tea in my favorite chair. Whether you like sweet or savory breakfasts, I’ve got you covered with 15 make ahead breakfast recipes that can help your mornings go more smoothly.

Quiche is a great freezer meal because you can bake it from frozen. Make several and always have an easy breakfast in the freezer ready to go.
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins | The Lazy Genius Collective
I’ve made these muffins several times, and they’re the real deal. It makes a ton of muffins, so I usually plan to have half of them out for breakfast for the week and I put the other half in the freezer for a future week.
Fluffy Pancakes | AllRecipes
I’m not above using a mix to make pancakes, but these pancakes are easy to make and they freeze really well. This is a basic recipe, but you can always add fruit or my favorite—chocolate chips—and make them even more exciting.
Freezer Breakfast Sandwiches | Tastes Better from Scratch

This recipe makes huge, fluffy waffles that are great for flash freezing and then throwing in a freezer ziptop bag for future breakfasts. You can reheat them in the toaster or the microwave!
Triple Chocolate Zucchini Bread | Creme de la Crumb
I made this for dinner a few months ago to go along with a breakfast casserole when we were doing breakfast for dinner, and no one could believe it had zucchini in it. It made two loaves, so I sliced up the second loaf and froze the slices flat in the freezer for a few hours before placing them all in a freezer bag. They held up great and made for an easy addition to breakfast (or a snack!).
