Every week I cook for our Sunday school class. The reason is partially selfish - our class is at 9:30 which is right when my blood sugar starts to crash. Problem is, I'm bored with the same old same old. It has to be something I can prep the night before and that will be ok sitting at room temperature for a few hours (church starts at 8:15). I don't mind throwing something in the oven for 30-45 minutes in the morning, but I get myself and three small kiddos ready, so I don't do well with anything that has to be actively tended in the morning. Any ideas??

Added bonus if you've got something with little or no sugar, white flour, white potatoes or rice.

Granola, chopped fruit dripped w lemon juice to stop browning, cinnamon, yogurt, boiled eggs

You can make your own granola that is w/o sugar

Egg "muffins".
Make the "muffins" in your cupcake tin and keep them warm either in a crockpot or a cooler with a heating pad inside.

Regular muffins would work too, but instead of white flour, use wheat flour or quinoa flour.

Hard boiled eggs and spinach on an english muffin.

English Muffin
Hard-boiled egg, sliced
Low-fat mayo
Spinach leaves
Mrs. Dash

Split the English muffin and toast it. Spread each side with a little bit of low fat mayo. Put spinach leaves on each side, sliced egg on top. Plop a little bit of mayo to each side with a little bit of Mrs. Dash.

If you have a toaster oven, which I do not, instead of toasting the muffin first you can pile everything onto the muffin and then put it in the toaster oven until the mayo on top is slightly brown.

It is yummy both ways.

Cube day-old bread
Dice microwaved veggie sausage patties
Grate cheese
Mince onions or chop scallions
Small-dice bell peppers if you want
Mince mushrooms if you like
Clean out the frigde - dice small/use leftovers

Layer them.

Pour a mix of eggs/milk/salt/pepper/paprika over the top - enough to thoroughly soak it. (~1 egg & a splash of milk per slice of bread-ish?)

Soak it overnight (covered), poke it in the oven while you run around getting ready (~350, ~ 1 hr., until it's set / knife comes out clean), serve to happy people.

I like to broil it uncovered for a couple of minutes at the end to brown it appetizingly but that's an unnecessary nicety.

Travels well, reheats well, grows or shrinks to crowd size, always gets eaten so I guess it's ok.

Hmmm...just wondered about doing a Mexican style one with a layer Rotel tomatoes & jack cheese.

Thanks, I like these ideas!

Crock pot oatmeal! Crock pots travel well.

You can bring little tupperwares of various mix ins - brown sugar, fruit (dried or fresh), etc.

My favorite catering company at my last job had an awesome hot oatmeal bar on their breakfast menu, and I used to schedule 8am meetings just so we could order it.

Apple cinnamon french toast casserole, prep the night before...

Breakfast burritos--you can get the whole wheat tortillas (or make your own, I've made my own tortillas and it is worth the price at the store to me just to buy them as they're a pain to roll out), scramble the eggs early and keep warm in a croc pot, and then offer all the traditional "sides" that people might like.

I'm gonna keep these ideas in mind. My hubby was actually home and off this weekend and he wanted blueberry muffin bread, so he won out this time.

Leia - I giggled at your tortilla comment. I live in New Mexico - the land of green chile and home made tortillas. I typically buy mine at a locally operated tortilla factory just up the street. If I couldn't get fresh made ones so easily, I'd buy a tortilla press because they just taste so much better (especially corn tortillas).

Baked oatmeal. It sounds weird when you see all the ingredients but it is much better than standard oatmeal, imo. Honestly, I can't eat typical oatmeal. The texture is SO off putting to me.

A basic baked oatmeal is going to have:
3 cups rolled oats (Do not use instant)
3/4 to 1 cup of sugar (I usually use brown)
2 tsp of baking powder
1 tsp of salt

Mix those together. In a separate bowl mix the wet:
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 stick to full stick melted butter.

Add the wet to the dry. Pour into a greased casserole pan and bake at 350 for 40 to 50 minutes or until set.

Here's the deal though, that's just the base. You can add ANYTHING to this. Berries of any kind, sliced bananas, warm some peanut butter and use that in place of the regular butter, chocolate chips, cocoa powder, etc. You just cut it up and serve. I tend to like to add a little milk to mine to make it a tad softer.

I was intrigued by the baked oatmeal and went onto Pinterest to see more recipes.
I found one that's a single serve German Chocolate Baked Oatmeal.
Life is now complete.

Hmmmm..... baked oatmeal...... with those add-ins? Just may have to try that! And, Gaby, I have a friend who would love the German Chocolate Cake variation.

I love baked oatmeal. I've made it with chocolate and coconut. I've made it with blueberries. Raspberries and dark chocolate. Plain. I have a recipe that doesn't use sugar (applesauce and bananas add the sweet factor). I took it to class once. It wasn't a big hit.

Blueberry cream cheese french toast bake. I made it at Christmas and everyone raved. It may not be the healthiest breakfast idea, but it is really good.
