Make-Ahead Breakfasts for People On the Go
Table of Contents

    For go-getters and people on the run, having a hot and ready homemade breakfast can not only be a time saver - it can be a life saver too! Skipping breakfast may work for some, but definitely not for all. And rushing through breakfasts - i.e. grabbing a bagel or a muffin - can be quick, but not necessarily nourishing nor satisfying.

    By batch-prepping breakfasts into ready-to-eat portions ahead of time with Souper Cubes®, you can have your first meal of the day ready to go for months on end, if you freeze them (Souper Cubes® trays are very freezer-friendly). So from make-ahead breakfast casseroles to quiche, French toast and more, here are some of our favorite breakfast meal-prep ideas you can freeze and even bake in your Souper Cubes® trays to have morning meals ready to go.

    Steps for Prepping & Freezing Breakfast Casseroles & Quiches With Souper Cubes®

    • Bake in our 1-Cup or 2-Cup trays (without the lid). You can skip any cooking spray or oil as our food-grade silicone is already nonstick!
    • Let the casserole or quiche fully cool.
    • Label the lid (with either masking tape or a water-based paint marker), place it tightly on the tray, and store in the freezer. You can transfer the breakfast into a freezer-safe bag once frozen through.
    • To thaw or reheat, we recommend placing the casserole or quiche in the refrigerator the night before. If you forget, that's okay! You'll just need to add some extra time for it to reheat. You can either microwave until warm or place in a 325°F oven. We love using our Baking Dishes to reheat frozen casseroles and quiches.
    • Enjoy your delicious breakfast!

Providing both veggies and protein, it can easily be prepped and frozen ahead of time using our 1-Cup or 2-Cup trays.

    Superfood Smoothie Cubes


    (recipe: From My Bowl)

    For those who prefer a “liquid breakfast,” smoothie cubes are a great go-to option for the time-pressed. When you don't want to fidget with opening various boxes and bags, measuring out powders, and chopping fruit or veggies, this is just the thing! You can swap out the water for almond milk, yogurt, or your liquid of choice. Try freezing in our 2-Tbs or Half-Cup trays, and experiment with your favorite smoothie ingredients!

    Mixed Berry French Toast Casserole


    (recipe: Belle of the Kitchen)

    Elegant but easy enough, this berry delicious make-ahead breakfast is sure to satisfy your morning sweet tooth. Abundant kisses of brown sugar harmonize with the berries and meld with the gooey, cinnamony bread mixture as it bakes to perfection. It calls for a 9x13 baking pan, but for perfectly portioned breakfasts that you can serve one at a time, use our 2-Cup and 1-Cup trays and bake in our Stoneware. (See our variation here!)

    Freezer-Friendly Steel Cut Oats


    A true time-saver, this recipe is a go-to — it's nutritious, filling, and reheats in just 3-4 minutes in the microwave. We love steel-cut oats because they're not only cost-effective in bulk, but they're also filled with nutrients, easy to flavor, and minimally processed. As you prep in our 1-Cup Trays, you can add various toppings into the different cubes to have a variety of flavors!

    Breakfast Cookies

    Yes, you really can have cookies for breakfast! Made with healthy, wholesome ingredients like mashed bananas, egg, maple syrup, and oats, these sweet treats are a cheerful and fast way to start your day. Bake them ahead of time and freeze for up to three months, or save space by pressing the fresh dough into our FDA food-grade silicone, dishwasher-safe Cookie Trays™  which, with their #40 scoop-sized wells that yield 2.5ʺ cookies, store your dough in perfectly shaped and sized portions.
