Kid-Approved Breakfast Recipes
Start off the day with creative breakfast recipes that got the seal of approval from our panel of kid judges.
The Critics Weigh In
Kids ruled the kitchen at MyRecipes when we brought in a panel of boys and girls ages 4 to 11 and asked them to taste, rate, and critique the following recipes.
Whether savory or sweet, these breakfast recipes passed the test. And what made them a hit? Each recipe was kid-size and easy to eat – no forks or knives required!
Mini-CinnisTake refrigerated crescent rolls, add some pantry staples, and what you've got are mini cinnis with a homemade spin that both kids and grown-ups will enjoy. The kids all agreed that a glass of cold milk would complete this breakfast treat.
Breakfast Pizza CupsAny time you can add the word "pizza" to a kid's meal, it's bound to be a success. And this one was no exception, receiving the highest rating from our judges. Packed with healthy alternatives such as egg substitute and ground turkey sausage, you will love it just as much as your little ones. "It's a better way to eat eggs," says Jalen, 11.
French Toast BitesGive your crew the kid-friendly version of traditional French toast. These crispy bites are easy to eat and easy to make (only five ingredients and five minutes cooking time)—just right for your busy family.
Blueberry Oatmeal MuffinsShh, don't tell the kids these muffins are good for them! The fresh fruit and whole grains make for a filling breakfast that can be eaten at the table or on the way to school. And judge Anna Leigh, 9, suggested substituting strawberries for the blueberries.
Peanut Butter PancakesMake your everyday pancakes a little more exciting by adding peanut butter as a flavor alternative. And nothing would be better on this finger food (our judges wasted no time with utensils) than jam or jelly in place of regular maple syrup.
