to buy the Jimmy Dean sausage, egg, and cheese croissants at the grocery store.
I microwave them for 90 seconds from frozen—taste better than McD’s.
Most grocery stores–you get 4 for about $4.
I buy a box of 12 at Sam’s club for $10.98.
That makes it out to less than a $1.00 a day for me…..
I eat one sandwich with a glass of orange juice or one sandwich and a piece of fruit with a cup of hot chocolate….making it about $1.00 a day.
fill a flour tortilla with your favorite breakfast foods like eggs, sausage, cheese, bacon etc. Wrap in plastic wrap and freeze or refrigerate?depending on how quick you will use them.
Then while getting ready for work nuke for a few seconds and eat as you leave.
If you drink coffee, get a coffee maker with an autotimer or one of those k-kup things and have coffee equally as fast. Just as long as you remember to set it up the night before.
My guys like individual bottles of juice to drink in the car on the way to work. Of course being the tightwad I am I have cups with lids that they can fill and take full of juice made by the quart around here?much cheaper. They arent coffee drinkers, but they will take a to go cup of juice or milk with them.
McMuffins: On the weekends make up several McMuffins there at home with Canadian bacon/ham, sausage or bacon eggs and cheese on a toasted English Muffin treat like the breakfast burritos?nuke and go.
Sausage biscuits?like Mickey Ds. Same ingredients on them at home, make on the weekends or in the evenings, nuke and go.
If you like granola bars purchase some and grab one as you leave.
Ds eats a lot of yogurt for breakfast, but that he either eats before he leaves or when dh is driving, eating a yogurt while driving yourself could be hazardous to everyones health.
Make a big batch of pancakes on the weekend, or in the evenings. Store them in a container in the refrigerator with pieces of wax or parchment paper between them , nuke, and toppings and slow down long enough to eat it before you leave?syrup doesnt do well behind the stirring wheel.
Make waffles ahead of time, slap them in the toaster or microwave and either eat them as normal or put two together with stuff in between and eat a waffle sandwich as you travel.
All of these require preparing ahead of time, and a simple nuking, which you could do while getting your lunch out of the fridge, will be better for you than the drive through and will be much faster than a drive through.
Also consider other alternative ideas for breakfast like fruit, trail mix, breakfast cookies, make muffins on the weekend and eat during the week?they keep better if you store them in the frig. The variety of muffins you can make is endless.
Once you have given in and ate fast food, then challenge yourself to go longer the next time, repeat.
Think about what you buy at the fast food place and how you could make it at home.
