The Importance of Breakfast #HormelFamily

Tuesday, September 25, 2012


We officially have 3 weeks under our belts for this school year ~ and thinks are chugging right along...

oh sure, a minor blip here or there...but show me a family that hasn't had one or two of those ~ no wait - don't!

We are still adjusting to new schedules, new routines.

We are figuring out how to get everyone up and out of the house on time, dressed (appropriately...) with a little something in our bellies before we leave the house.  It's been said time and time again, that breakfast is the most important mean of the day ~

There are some pretty valid points to this, wouldn't you say?
I mean, if you are lucky, you've been asleep for the last six, seven, eight - I settle for five hours.

You've had nothing to eat or drink since who knows when the night before.
Our bodies need a little food and water to get us going again...

I know we need all the help we can get to get rolling in the mornings around here -

On the weekends, I like to fuel the family up with dishes like this...
(and the minimal ingredients make it a snap for people like me who hate the kitchen!)

Mile-High Omelet

  • Ingredients

6 large eggs
1 cup Hormel® Cure 81® Sliced Ham, diced
1/2 cup diced bell pepper
1/2 cup diced onion
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
Vegetable oil


  1. In large bowl, whisk eggs until frothy. Stir in ham, bell pepper and onion. 
  2. Coat medium skillet with oil; heat over medium heat. Pour in egg mixture. Stir once; cover. Reduce heat to low; cook until eggs are set and puffed.
  3. Remove skillet from heat; sprinkle omelet with cheese. Cover until cheese is melted. Cut into 4 wedges.

But what about those weekday mornings where we don't have time to actually sit down and eat together? Well, the same recipe above plopped onto an English Muffin, and we have our own take out to go! Still eating together, but on the run!

How often do you eat breakfast? Do you have a go to breakfast for time crunches?
I'd love to hear your thoughts...if you have an idea that works for your family ~ share it with me!

I'm digging on the importance of breakfast and all but as a father of five, this is a good quick dinner - we call it upside down dinner night. Throw some hash browns on the side, just shred potatoes and cook them in light oil not too much just enough to get hot and get ;em crunchy. there you are dinner in 20 minutes.
