5 Savory Make-Ahead Breakfasts to Save Your Mornings

Make your mornings less hectic and eat a whole lot smarter by prepping a week's worth of protein-rich breakfasts in one big batch. Just store them in the fridge so they're ready to go when you head out the door. Goodbye crazy mornings, hello happy days.

1. Tomatoes and Bacon Egg Muffins

Mini breakfast quiches like these are smart ways to use up any leftover meats and vegetables you might have on hand. Bake them in cupcake liners for easier handling and clean-up. And yes, they freeze beautifully.

2. Mason Jar Eggs

You can bake these beauties ahead of time and stash them in the fridge for up to a week. To heat them at the office, remove the lid and microwave for a few seconds until they're as warm as you want them. People are going to be so jealous.

Customize these easy, low-carb breakfast bites with different meats, vegetables, and cheeses. They freeze well and can be quickly heated in the microwave.
