Rise and shine, foodies! I am Emilie with the food blog Chew on That, here with a crazy-easy idiot-proof breakfast that you will love…I promise!
As a busy person with a long commute, I know that when I’m strapped for time, it’s nearly impossible to think of anything but a certain quick fast food breakfast sandwich or a bagel smeared with 1000 calories of cream cheese (they always plop on enough to feed a small country).

Wow, was that easy or what? Did I just blow your mind? Breakfast doesn’t have to involve cooking greasy bacon and flipping pounds of carb-loaded pancakes that take ages to prepare.
Pack this up for when you arrive at work and simply re-heat. If you want to eat it on your commute (not driving, of course!) it’s also an easy item to eat without the typical mess.
I find that some of the tastiest breakfast options are also the easiest. Give yourself an extra 15 minutes in the morning and breakfast is done. Instead of dealing with a growling stomach all morning (soooo not
