Quick Breakfast Ideas

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi my name is Ian O'Reilly and I was diagnosed with Celiac disease about 6 months ago. I've been pretty strict with it but I find breakfast to be a little bit of a problem. I have meats and rice and stuff for lunch and supper,but does anyone have any ideas on quick gluten free breakfasts that will actually fill me up before work and that are ready to go. Also is there any quick food restaurants that serve any gluten free breakfast foods.

One of my favorite breakfasts . . .

Whenever we have pancakes, I make a double batch and freeze the leftovers (wax paper in between). I think Van's also has some frozen gluten free pancakes if you don't want to make your own pancakes.

I also have frozen (pre-cooked) link sausage-lots of brands are gluten free.

I warm them both up in the microwave and use the pancake like a bun or wrap around the sausage . . . and go . . . gives me a "sausage & bisquit" type of fix.

Healthy Choice chicken and rice soup-I'll add extra chicken from dinner leftovers

tuna or chicken salad

broiled fish

Here's my favorite:

Rinse 1/4 cup quinoa. Boil 1/2 cup water, and add the rinsed quinoa. Add a banana and blueberries (or whatever other fruit you have on hand; peeled apples work nicely). Stir once, cover, and turn down the heat all the way. Cook for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and sweeten with honey or agave nectar, if desired. I also like to add chopped nuts and ground flax seeds for texture.

I believe you can buy grits in a box like the oatmeal packets. I found some gluten free frozen waffles. The brand is Van's. I found them at Mejiers. Cream of Rice doesn't take that long to cook. What about quinoa flakes?

I know it sounds like you prefer grab and go, but if you could take a couple of minutes to fry or scrample an egg with some Hormel Naturals ham or turkey, you would have a nice breakfast burrito. Wrap it in a corn tortilla warmed in your toaster.

Also any sandwich makings in a tortilla are portable. Like cream cheese and meat or peanut butter and jelly, watch out for the drip factor! I love eggs but a sausage link and cheese sounds good too. Can you tell I'm a protein in the morning kind of girl?

My fav is toasting some gluten-free waffles. One side peanut butter, other side jelly, and slap them together, run out the door and your gtg. You can also do this with cream cheese and jelly. :D

Jimmy dean makes yummy breakfast bowls and entrees, most are gluten free, just read the ingrediants. Also Aunt Jemima makes frozen breakfasts too, takes 3 mins in the microwave. I eat them all the time, fast easy and delicious. :D

We love these 2 freezable, heat and eat recipes:

http://kalynskitchen.blogspot.com/2006/10/...ited-again.html

I keep frozen chopped ham, bacon, green and red peppers and green onions in the freezer. Just thaw a little and use in the recipe. Make and freeze the extras. No flours needed!

I freeze a ripe banana at all times, then thaw. And use 1 1/2 cups any milk. Good with mini chocolate chips or berries. Wrap and freeze the extra, I make about 15. Great plain, toast and go!

Grab-n-go

fat slice of ham and an apple, coffee

smoked brat and a handful of grapes, coffee

precooked sausage and a banana, coffee

precooked bacon and an orange juice, coffee

peanut butter on a rice cake, peach, coffee

trail mix (nuts,chex,dried fruit), milk, coffee

Our Dr said that it takes a body 6 hours to break down protien, 2 to 4 hours for starches. So you stay full longer if you eat a good protien sorce for breakfast.

Hope this helps

My breakfast staple has been Quaker Instant Grits - I know that Quaker has a bad rep for cc, but I've had great luck with the instant grits. I like this thread, though, because I need to branch out. They are starting to get old...

For something really quick I have cold cereal such as Rice chex (now gluten gree) or Van's gluten-free waffles.

I did this yesterday. I now have 18 breakfasts sitting for me in the freezer. :P To make the pancakes a little heartier for grab'n'go, I'll put peanut butter on them after I've reheated them. weird, but effective. :P

This is a great, filling and quick breakfast!

I got this recipe from a lady at Trader Joe's that said it was AWESOME!! So, I thought I'd share, but wanted some feedback as well.

1/4 c Almond meal (ONLY 3.99/lb - WAY cheaper than everywhere else)

1 tsp. Cinnamon

1 Egg - well beaten

1 Tbsp Canola oil (I use grapeseed oil)

1 Tbsp Agave Sweetener

Mix dry & wet ingredients separately and then together. I now use my magic bullet to mix it up and that works really well. You certainly don't have to though.

Pour batter into coffee cup that has been lightly sprayed with a non-stick spray. I've put it in a larger dish too and it works great.

Microwave on high for 1 minute to 1 minute 15 seconds

Invert over plate; should fall out easily.

Top it off with a little butter or all-fruit spread.

You could also put some fruits or whatever in it.

I LOVE the Arrowmills Rise n Shine breakfast (you can do the same thing with cream of rice cereal). I add a little brown sugar, slivered almonds and some type of frozen berries. It take about 5 mintues to prepare and it keeps me full all morning. Healthy and yummy!

I LOVE pancakes with peanut butter!! Forget the syrup... :)

I'm into cereal with fruit on top these days, or I'll make biscuits and eat off of those for a few days with some precooked sausage patties. Just heat them up and put on the bread. Very portable and 1 or 2 of them will keep me full for a couple of hours.

Breakfast is hard for me too... thanks for starting this. I'm always looking for new stuff.
