Breakfast Made Easy On Busy Mornings #BrueggersBunch

Breakfast Made Easy On Busy Mornings #BrueggersBunch

Mornings in my home during the school year can only be described as incredibly busy! We have six family members waking up and eating breakfast at five separate times, and leaving the house at four different times. From the time the first person wakes up until the last person runs out the door, it’s a whirlwind!


Quick breakfasts are the only way to go, but relying on cereal, instant oatmeal or frozen waffles each day gets boring. There’s a simple and delicious solution that all of us can agree on: bagels! Our favorite bagels come from our local Bruegger’s Bagels, which has bagel and cream cheese flavors that we all love!


Finding time to run extra errands in a family of six is often a struggle, so I have even ordered the small bagel box online from the catering menu, and asked my husband to pick it up when he leaves the office. It has enough bagels for two days and comes with plain and honey walnut cream cheese, and it’s waiting for him ready to go when he arrives.

I’m the first person awake each morning, bright and early at 6 AM, but preparing breakfast for our busy morning ahead is an easy job with Bruegger’s on the menu. I simply slice each bagel in half, sit out our favorite cream cheese flavors and add a few pieces of fruit. Thanks to Bagels A La Carte, each family member can choose exactly what they want!

At Bruegger’s Bagels, there is a flavor that everybody in my family loves, but most of the time we stick with plain, so we can jazz them up with our favorite toppings. My 12 year old son Dylan is the first to leave on school mornings, his bus picks him up at a painfully early 6:43 AM. He’s not always in the mood for a full breakfast but willingly eats bagels, so we purchase them often. Although he is our most creative eater, he usually opts for a plain cream cheese bagel sandwich and a piece of fruit to start his day!

My husband leaves for work about an hour later. He eats his breakfast during his long commute or at his desk, so his breakfast has to be simple. An egg and cheese bagel sandwich along with fruit and almonds makes for a healthy, well-balanced breakfast that satisfies his hunger until lunchtime!

Lexie and Lily are the only ones who have the same schedule, they wake up and eat breakfast together every morning! Lexie likes to keep things simple, so she usually chooses a half of a bagel with plain cream cheese, however Lily still needs a smile to start her day! (Sometimes it really is fun to play with food!)

Liam is the last person to wake up each morning. He likes to spend some time playing before devouring his breakfast! Eating a full bagel is still a bit difficult for Liam, so I slice it into small wedges to make it easier for him, then give him a spoonful of softened cream cheese for dipping. Serving it with a side of fruit and a yogurt drink gives him a healthy start!

Mom, of course, is always the last person to eat! I used to have a bad habit of skipping breakfast, and I would only remember when hunger pains hit in the afternoon, but now I make sure to grab an easy breakfast to take with me as I run out the door. I prefer a bagel with Strawberry, Honey Walnut or Greek Blueberry (the summer special at Bruegger’s Bagels) cream cheese, some almonds and a yogurt drink! And my breakfast is literally eaten on the run!

Getting used to our new morning schedule has been an adjustment, but (I think) we’re rocking it! Thanks to the help of our Bruegger’s Bagels breakfast, our mornings have been easier. As a busy mom of four kids, I’m a fan of ANYTHING that saves me time!
