I tried the tortilla flip, and I LOVE IT. I enjoy mine with some sauteed onions and bell pepper. Thanks, ginger!

I like toast with peanut butter and golden raisins. It's very filling, and has protein and fruit.

i tend to have a lot of parties at my house and there's always one person who can't drive home, so i've made it a point to always make them breakfast. it's gotten to the point where people want to stay over the night - regardless of their alcohol intake.

one of my favorite things to make is a breakfast burrito of sorts. first, like any good cajun meal, no matter what time of day, i add butter and chopped onions to a hot skillet. then, i take smoked sausage (the turkey kind, usually is about 98% fat free) and cut it up into small pieces and add it to the pan, then i add in thawed out tater-tots, and cook until they start to brown. i'll add cheese (cheddar and/or pepper jack, american works too) and scrabble in some eggs (they sort of bind it together, but your kids shouldn't be able to see them). then i put all this into a flour tortilla and serve it to the hungover person on the couch.

on fishing trips to our family's camp, we usually will make "breakfast in a cup". it usually consists of grits, bacon or sausage, eggs, white gravy, cheese... basically whatever you have on hand. then you layer it in a cup and eat it. pretty quick clean up, to boot.

i'll also make quiche. these are good because you can make a bunch and then snack on it throughout the week. cut a slice and nuke it and out the door.

also, sometimes for breakfast, i'll make a grilled peanut butter and jelly sandwich (i just posted this on the weird foods i eat thread). make it like you would a grilled cheese sandwich. i'll also throw in some bananas for some extra pizzazzzzzz...

i agree with a poster from earlier - speaking as former kid and as an older sister - it's easier to make a kid eat something if they're there helping and learning and tasting. i loved sitting on the counter next to mom adding and tasting things into bowls.

So true, but something about the joys of helping/learning/tasting gets lost in the 7:15 am rush to the school bus  Wink.

this is true. but... maybe if they help on the weekends or not necessarily help make breakfast, but some other meal ... it could still get engrained in them. my stepmom and my 6year old brother like to spend a few hours on sundays cooking things for the week ahead. he's become a bit of a food savvy, but sticks to mostly making pizzas because he can snack on toppings during the process  Cheesy

on a sidenote of sorts, just because i was thinking about it - i was talking to my roomie about this whole cooking-with-parents thing the other night. we're both 27year old females and raised in completely different types of households. she's an only kid and her mom never cooked, but would just buy whatever she was in the mood for. emily was also never permitted to do chores or clean up after herself. now at 27, her diet consists of mostly hotdogs and dino-shaped chicken nuggets, or anything else she can throw in a microwave on a plate and be ready in under 3min. she does this because she doesn't know how to cook nor wants to have to dirty dishes which i will make her clean. she scoffs at me when i actually cook and prepare a meal, but is always jealous when i'm done and i'm not hungry a few hours later.

that is definitely something i plan on engraining in my kids, whenever that may be.  Cheesy

also, i just thought about it because maybe it's lunch time and i'm hungry, but if you're a parent that doesn't like giving your kids sugar and jelly is usually jam packed with it, try a peanut butter with honey sandwich. i come from a family of bee farmers and honey is a staple (we even call my grandfather Honey  Grin). we use it in place of sugar from sweetening coffee to baking.

or if you like sugar, i used to eat marshmellow cream and peanut butter sandwiches. i tried one recently because i remember eating them all the time, and man have my tastebuds changed! it was soooo sweet... holy crackerjacks.

I was taught to cook and it does make a HUGE  difference in the final out come as an adult.   I also do get teh kids to help as much as possible in preparing meals.  my daughter makes wonderful meatloaf (shes 10) my son doesn't much like to cook but he is  learning weather he likes it or not Smiley not.  I want him to be independant! 
I found pancake puff thing  I want to buy that will help alot with breakfast.
