Today people just don't have time to cook in the afternoon for dinner or in the morning for breakfast. For breakfast especially if they work and have kids that are of school age. Getting ready themselves and making sure their children are ready can be hectic.

If you don't have time to cook for your kids and yourself in the mornings, the night before for breakfast. Casseroles for breakfast can include eggs, diced hams, bacon, Canadian bacon and either cube of bread or hash browns. Put it in the refrigerator or freezer and heat up in the morning and everybody has a hearty breakfast and will do better in school and if parents work they will perform their job better.

Then you need a starch, that could be noodles or a grain, like some type if rice, or quinoa, oats, corn or millet. A sauce for a casserole can be a cream of something soup or a gray or tomato sauce. And some vegetables, and like I mentioned before you can use real ground beef instead of protein crumbles. If you want, put on a topping of your favorite cheese melted on top.
