What's the fastest way to cook breakfast? (Not including buying a burger at Macdonald's!)

egg is always an option for fast breakfast preparation. sandwich is also appealing for the rush of breakfast. potato wrapped with foil and put it inside the microwave oven for 4-5 minutes is also an alternative. mayonaise whip cream is always an indulgence. cereals and milk are ready to eat. fresh milk and bread are my favorites.

Eggs, they are some of the easiest, or a sandwich, usually i prepare my breakfast the night before if i know i will be in a hurry the next day in the morning, i make some scrambled eggs, and then i put them inside sandwich bread, i put them inside the sandwich machine, to make the bread toasted, and i put it in a container, the next day i only put it in the microwave and eat it fast. Also you can prepare pancakes or french toast, the night before, but if i'm really in a hurry and i didnt prepare anything the night before, i make a quick ham sandwich and a cup of tea or a fried egg with toasts.

here are some recipes from allrecipes.com Easy Breakfast Nachos SUBMITTED BY: wandakff "This breakfast dish is quick, easy and suitable for any time of the year." INGREDIENTS * 1 pound bulk chorizo sausage * 1/2 onion, chopped * 5 eggs, beaten * 4 tomatoes, chopped * 2 jalapeno peppers, sliced * 1 (8 ounce) package tortilla chips * 1 (8 ounce) package finely shredded Mexican blend cheese DIRECTIONS 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). 2. Cook the chorizo in a skillet over medium heat until crumbled and evenly browned, about 5 minutes; drain and set aside. Cook the onion in the same skillet until soft; stir in the eggs and scramble with the onion. Mix in the tomatoes and continue to cook and stir until eggs are nearly set; remove from heat. 3. Spread a layer of tortilla chips into a 9x13 baking dish. Scatter the chorizo and the scrambled egg mixture over the chips. Top with jalapeno slices and cover with the cheese. 4. Bake in preheated oven until cheese is melted, 7 to 10 minutes. ----------------------------- Easy Breakfast Sausage Burgers SUBMITTED BY: masterharper "Sausage Burgers are a spicy twist on fast-food breakfast sandwiches, but a whole lot better. Don't let the pickle and onion scare you off. These are really good." INGREDIENTS * 1 (16 ounce) package bulk hot pork sausage * 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened * 5 hamburger buns, split * 5 eggs * 15 dill pickle slices * 5 slices pepperjack cheese * 1 small red onion, sliced * 10 pickled jalapeno slices (optional) DIRECTIONS 1. Form the bulk hot pork sausage into 5 patties. Heat a large skillet, and fry the patties over medium high heat. Remove the sausage from the skillet and drain on paper towels. 2. Melt butter in a second large skillet, and toast the buns over medium heat until golden brown. 3. Meanwhile, break the eggs into the same skillet used for frying the sausage; reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook until the white is completely set and the yolk thickens. Flip the eggs and continue cooking for another 30 seconds, or until the yolk is to the diners' preferences. 4. Stack your toasted buns starting with the pickles and jalapeno slices on the bottom, then the cooked sausage patty, pepperjack cheese, fried egg, and onion. Cover with the top half of the bun. Enjoy as the cheese melts between the egg and the sausage.

I never have time to cook breakfast before work and since they say it is the most important meal of the day I make a quick breakfast drink. I take a banana and orange juice and a few spoonfuls of yogurt and hemp hearts(fibre) and blend it with my hand held blender. Fills the gap and keeps me regular!

If you don't have a lot of time to cook breakfast, maybe you should think about making something before you go to bed. There are a lot of things you can pre-cook and have ready, wrapped in foil or waxed paper. That way, all you have to think about is popping it in the microwave. You can make burritos many different ways. They are quick and easy to heat in the microwave. Otherwise, scrambled eggs mixed with almost anything are quick. Throw the scrambled eggs on toast or plain bread and eat on the go. Burrito suggestions; scrambled eggs with bacon, sausage, ham, spinach, mushrooms, tomatoes, or a combination of all the above. Beef and bean burritos or just plain beef or plain bean, with or without cheese. Breakfast sandwiches; scrambled egg with bacon, sausage, ham or a lot of the same as with burritos. Fried egg sandwiches are good too, just like the ones you would get from McDonalds. Cheaper and better for you. Another suggestion if you don't have a lot of time? Get up 10 minutes earlier and make time for a better breakfast.

Scrambled eggs and toast with a glass of milk or orange juice are always a fast breakfast and good for you.

Some days, when I'm in a rush, I just put some yoghurt in a bowl and put some granola or dry cereal on top. Or we will make a big batch of waffles on a day off, freeze them, and put the in the toaster oven on the morning we want to eat them.
