If you are looking for a quick and easy meal to take on the go, then try a breakfast burrito. They only take a few minutes to make and can fit in your pocket.
It only takes, eggs, sausage, and some vegetables to make your burrito. I like to jazz my burrito up and add in a little cheddar cheese.

I love a hot hash brown in the morning to help me get my day started. The crispy potato is hearty enough to be eaten alone.
Homemade hash browns taste great, but I prefer the frozen hash browns because they come pressed in a square and are easy to handle.

Bran Muffins are a hearty way to fill you up in the morning. The fluffy muffins go great with a cup of coffee.
Ingredients matter when making your bran muffins. Be sure to choose unsulfured molasses and use plump, fresh raisins.

Nothing beats waking up in the morning to a smooth, creamy, and sweet, strawberry banana smoothie. The fruit gives your body a healthy jump start.
When I am making my smoothie, I like to add in about six or seven ice cubes, along with half a banana, half a cup of strawberries, fruit juice and blend.
6. Ham and cheese croissants
Take your to go breakfast up a notch, by serving up some ham and cheese croissants. The melted cheese compliments the semi-sweet ham.
To cut down on fat, you can substitute turkey ham instead of pork ham. The texture of the meat is still the same even though turkey is not as sweet.
7. Turkey bagel
I like to serve my turkey bagel on a plain bagel, although you can use cinnamon raisin or blueberry to sweeten your bagel up.
Although any kind of turkey will do, I prefer to use honey baked turkey for my bagel because the honey adds in extra flavor.
8. Fruit Salad
Fresh fruit is always a sensible to go to in the morning for something quick and easy that is not too heavy on your stomach.
I like to eat my fruit with fruit dip. Fruit dip is super simple to make. All you need is a little cream cheese, marshmallow creme and almond extract.
9. Hard Boiled Egg
Hard boiled eggs are easy to make, and I always enjoyed taking off the shell once the eggs have finished boiling.
The trick to hard-boiled eggs is to make sure the egg has completely cooked before removing the shell. If the shell has begun to crack while cooking it is done.
10. French Toast Sticks
Mornings are easier with a fresh batch of French toast sticks to help get your day started. Drizzle on a little syrup for a sweet on the go meal.
They type of bread you use for your French toast sticks does matter. I like to use Texas toast because it is thick and holds a lot of egg.
11. Cereal Bar
If you love a bowl of cereal in the morning, but do not have the time to sit down and enjoy it, then grab a cereal bar made form your favorite flakes or oats.
When I make my cereal bars, I like to use a cereal that is high in sugar content, such as Fruity Pebbles because it tastes sweeter.
12. Bacon and Eggs Muffins
Cannot get through your morning without a hot plate of bacon and eggs for breakfast, but do not have the time to cook them?
Then whip up a pan of bacon and eggs muffins. You can make them the night before and simply re-heat and add syrup in the morning.
13. Pigs in a Blanket
Pigs in a blanket makes a great afternoon snack, but they can also serve as a convenient on the go breakfast idea.
It is best to use Pillsbury Crescent rolls to make our pigs in a blanket. You can also use refrigerated biscuits, but they are not as flaky as the rolls.
14. Yogurt and fruit
Yogurt in the morning is a healthy way to get some calcium in your body, to help build healthy bones, and it tastes delicious as well.
You can make you own yogurt and it is easy to do. However, I prefer store bought yogurt and then I add in my own fruit such as grapes.
15. Banana Breakfast Cookies
These banana breakfast cookies are a scrumptious way to perk up your taste buds first thing in the morning.
These cookies are easy to make and only require six simple ingredients. All you need is some peanut butter, bananas, cinnamon, Chocolate chips, quick oats and vanilla.

Breakfast enchiladas are a spicy way to start your mornings if you are looking for a filling dish that can also be made ahead of time.
The key to mouth watering breakfast enchiladas is to let the tortillas soak in the egg mixture over night. This will enhance the texture and taste of the tortillas.
