In my world breakfast is the most important meal of the day. The thought of something delicious gets me out of bed on especially lazy mornings, and I just don’t feel like myself until I’ve had a legitimate breakfast and a cup of coffee. (OK, two cups of coffee.) But, I don’t always time to whip something up. Store-bought breakfast bars feel a little meh, and picking up a $6 breakfast sandwich every morning definitely isn’t a wallet-friendly answer. In times like these, meal prep breakfasts are the key to a happy stomach—and a happy wallet.

There are plenty of ways to throw breakfast together in two minutes or less, but my favorite is the make-ahead freezer breakfast (aka, the meal prep breakfast). This way, I get something cooked and super tasty, but only have to put the effort in once. And luckily, most breakfast foods are very freezer-friendly—meaning your meal prep breakfast options are pretty abundant.

If you like the sound of make-ahead freezer breakfasts but aren’t quite sure where to start, the following recipes range from savory egg sandwiches and calzones, to sweet banana muffins and frozen yogurt cups. Make one—or choose a whole bunch—and fill your freezer with quick breakfast options.
