Easy Breakfast Recipes for Frugal Living

Nowadays with our busy schedules and 2.4 kids, who couldn't use some easy breakfast recipes to help us through the crazy mornings?

I knew I had to create easy breakfast recipes or breakfast would be skipped! So my kitchen was REALLY messy for a week or two while I concocted these delicious breakfast recipes. Go ahead, enjoy mornings again!

Lady Abigail's Funnel Cakes

2 cups milk
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 Tbsp sugar
1/2 cup or 1 stick melted margarine
Oil for frying
Powdered sugar for dusting

Combine milk, egg, and vanilla in a large bowl.

In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt, baking soda, and sugar and gradually add to wet ingredients. Beat with a mixer until a smooth batter forms. Fold in melted butter.

In a small frying pan, heat about an inch of oil to 350°.

Pour batter into a funnel or squeeze bottle while using your index finger to stop the flow of the batter. Bring the funnel over the hot oil and release your finger to start a stream of batter while moving the funnel in a circular motion to create spiral-like shapes. Fry for 2 to 3 minutes until golden brown and slightly puffed. Flip with tongs and continue to fry just until golden brown.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar, top with fruit and syrup or spread with jam. Serves 6.

My girls love eating these with fruit topping. Plum Topping is one of their favorites.

Quick and Easy Porridge

The key to making this recipe quick and easy is to prepackage. You can save time by measuring out each single serving into sandwich bags beforehand.

When it's time to cook just empty one sandwich bag into a bowl, add water and microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until desired thickness or follow stove top directions below. Flavor with strawberries, bananas, or even maple syrup and you're ready to eat!
