Mornings at our house are slightly chaotic, especially now that we’re headed back-to-school. Getting four kids up, dressed, fed, and the oldest two out the door in time to catch the school bus can be a challenge. I need a quick and easy breakfast solution that will fill them up and leave them fueled until lunch. A protein-packed breakfast sandwich and our favorite smoothie recipe should do the trick!

There are several quick and easy breakfast solutions that we take advantage of at our house – oatmeal, fried eggs, toast and jam, yogurt and granola – but one of our favorites is a hot breakfast sandwich and a sunrise smoothie.

While we were at Meijer doing some back-to-school shopping last week, I made a stop in the grocery section. I grabbed some supplies for lunches (like Hillshire Farm® Naturals Slow Roasted Turkey – a delicious all natural lunchmeat) and ingredients for quick and easy breakfasts (like Jimmy Dean® Frozen Croissant Sausage Egg Cheese sandwiches – a filling breakfast made from real ingredients and ready to eat in under three minutes).

Heating up the Jimmy Dean®  sandwiches (follow the instructions on the box) while packing the kids’ lunches saves me time in the mornings.

Add a smoothie, and the kids are fully fueled and ready for a busy day of learning!

We make lots of different smoothies at our house, but one of our favorites is the Sunrise Smoothie. With just three ingredients, this dairy-free smoothie is quick and easy, and complements the breakfast sandwiches perfectly!

Serve the Sunrise Smoothie in a glass with a straw alongside the Jimmy Dean®  breakfast sandwiches for a quick and easy, protein-packed breakfast before rushing out the door to school!
