Do you eat breakfast every morning? When I ask people that question, the answer tends to be split about 50/50: half do have breakfast, and half run out the door without eating anything. I’m team breakfast myself—I just can’t function without eating in the morning, and I make it my job to hassle my friends who don’t eat about the benefits of starting their days with something healthy and filling.

When people tell me they don’t eat in the morning, my follow-up question is always: why? And I find that a lot of them say they just don’t have time to stop and think about breakfast. Between getting ready for work, prepping the kids for school, and commuting across town every day, their early mornings are mad rushes that leave no room for error. For those friends, I’ve started thinking about and creating make-ahead breakfasts they can quickly assemble, grab, and eat on the go. Bonus points if you can make large batches of said breakfast and then freeze it in portions so you don’t have to think about it for days, or even weeks.

My favorite to-go breakfast ingredient is eggs. Eggs are so nutritious, high in protein, and versatile: they’re a healthy way to fill up the tank with energy that will sustain you for hours. I like to make breakfast sandwiches, tacos, and burritos with eggs, but my latest recipe uses them in a different, creative way that’ll please those who prefer their breakfast on the sweet side.

Bread pudding is usually served for dessert because it’s made with rich, high-calorie ingredients such as heavy cream, sugar, and white or brioche bread and served doused with crème anglaise or syrup. But as I was brainstorming about creative ways to use eggs in the morning, it occurred to me that a healthier version of bread pudding might be a perfect breakfast-on-the-go option. My Make-Ahead Granola Breakfast Bread Pudding is made with protein-rich eggs, fiber-filled whole wheat bread, healthy nuts, and dried fruits to add just that perfect touch of sweetness. Everything you need to start your day on the right foot.
