PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!
I’d Love your input! Please share tested recipes, ideas, hints and hacks that have worked for you (and include photos if you’d like) for quick breakfasts on the go. These blogs are ongoing and will be updated regularly, so maybe you’ll find your recipes here!
On any given road trip, there are always mornings when we leave REALLY early, and we’ve probably done most of the packing up the night before. Obviously there’s not time to cook or prepare even quick breakfasts, much less do dishes and pack the kitchen stuff. Besides, Eddie won’t eat until he’s been up for awhile.
As I’ve mentioned before, we have a small lunchbox cooler. It stays in the truck, plugs into the cigarette lighter and can keep things cool. This can sometimes be helpful. (See about coolers and items to pack in your trailer and vehicle HERE). I usually have items for a quick breakfast that are cold, but if you need a microwave you can always pop in to a gas station that also has a convenience store and use theirs. Make sure you purchase fuel though, otherwise that’s just… well… tacky.
Generally I have individual items ready for the morning, and I try to include a protein, a carb and a fruit. Most of the time we eat in the truck, but it’s always possible to stop for a tailgate-type quick breakfast.
HERE ARE SOME OF OUR FAVORITE QUICK BREAKFAST ITEMS:
Proteins For Quick Breakfasts:
-Hard boiled eggs (I keep the little S&P packets from restaurants in the lunch cooler)
-Jerky (I make my own because store bought ones are loaded with salt and sugar). Click for some recipes HERE
-Trail Mix loaded with Nuts:

Fruits For Quick Breakfasts:
Ok. This is really a no brain-er. We like to stop at Farmer’s Markets and load up on Veggies and FRUITS! For a quick breakfast I’ll pack 1 piece of fruit for each of us, although I’ll stick to the ones that won’t get easily ‘smushed’ or need to be cut up.
So that gets us started! If you have an early morning quick breakfast idea or recipe you’d like to share, please contact me HERE.
If your idea is to stop at a fast food place, then…don’t.
