Cheap breakfasts: Save $$$ in the New Year

Cold cereals and frozen breakfasts are convenient but are they economical?

I bet we all know in our heart of hearts that they are not.

But then what do we serve for breakfast?

Homemade breakfasts are much cheaper than frozen or even cold cereal unless you get a stupendous deal.

No time most weekday mornings?  Make double or triple of an item or items on the weekend and freeze for your own convenience.  Most breakfast items don't take that long to mix and with a few shortcuts you can let your stove do most of the work.

So what to make:

Oven baked oatmeal, or oatmeal in the slow cooker.

Pancakes , pour the batter into a rectangular pan to bake and cut into squares when done.

Muffins, you can always pour the batter into a loaf pan to bake and slice as needed.

French toast, layer bread in rectangular pan and pour the egg mixture over, let sit to allow the egg to be absorbed by the bread, then bake and cut into squares.

Raisin cinnamon scones, make one big round to bake and cut servings as needed.

Toast with peanut butter and jelly.

English muffins buttered then sprinkled with cinnamon sugar and baked.

Homemade cinnamon rolls (Mother of the year territory).
