Quick and easy make-ahead breakfast recipes with budget-friendly ingredients are perfect for college students with little time and money.
My oldest daughter heads to BYU in the fall and I’m in denial. I’m definitely not old enough to have a graduate and I’m definitely not ready for her to leave home, but apparently I have no choice. Like me, she’ll be staying in on-campus housing, but unlike me, she’ll have a kitchen.
I was all about the cafeteria my first year…and the freshman 15.
Hopefully with a kitchen she can eat a bit healthier and avoid those first-year pounds. I thought I could help her out by rounding up 12 make-ahead breakfast recipes perfect for college students. Because most college students are on a budget, I chose recipes that required fewer—and fairly normal—ingredients. Of course, these recipes aren’t just for college students; they’re perfect for anyone on the go!
