Trader Joe’s could be considered the holy grail of grocery stores for us here at The Everymom. We all love it, and we’re always trying to find the newest and best products to share with the world. In my opinion, breakfast is the hardest meal to prepare something hearty and fulfilling for—after all, we’re busy ladies with minimal time in the morning to cook breakfast between making ourselves look presentable and running out the door.
So today, we’re sharing the best quick TJ’s breakfast items so you’ll never want to skip the most important meal of the day again.
TJ’s has tons of delicious toaster waffle options—including gluten-free, blueberry (my favorite), and thick and fluffy Belgian.
2. Ready-to-bake croissants
Sweet or salty? You can get either, or both, with the chocolate croissant or the ham and cheese croissant. Preheat and throw one in the oven first thing when you wake up so you can grab it on your way out the door.
3. Hash browns
Trader Joe’s hash browns, both the shredded and patty styles, are a staple of their breakfast selection. Try their cauliflower pancakes too. Whatever option you go with, hash browns are the best way to top off any breakfast plate.
TJ’s has so many awesome granola flavors as well! The possibilities are endless: use it to top your yogurt, oatmeal, or smoothie bowl, add almond milk and enjoy it cereal-style, throw it into or on top of some pancakes, etc.
There are tons of oatmeal options at Trader Joe’s, including frozen steel-cut, grab and go cups, and instant packets. This is my favorite quick breakfast, especially when it’s chilly outside.
Again—so many options! Everything from 99-cent Greek yogurt in lots of flavors to dairy-free alternatives like cashew yogurt.
7. ‘Everything but the Bagel’ seasoning
You know it, you love it. The seasoning of all seasonings. It’s best during breakfast time on avocado toast, eggs, or just about anything else.
8. Teeny tiny avocados
The perfectly portioned (and cutest) solution for the aforementioned avocado toast, or just about any other way to enjoy avocado so you don’t have to worry about the other half going bad.
9. Frittatas and quiches
Another quick, easy, and delicious option that you can throw in the oven while you get ready in the morning, for those days when you’re feeling a little fancy.
10. Breakfast burritos
The true definition of a grab and go breakfast: a burrito. The chicken sausage breakfast burrito is perfectly handheld for optimal in-commute eating, but truly any flavor will do.
11. Frozen roasted potatoes with pepper and onions
Preparing delicious breakfast potatoes can be a huge task, especially for a weekday morning. These take all the hassle out, so you can enjoy them topped with an egg or two, creating the most delightful breakfast bowl—or throw in some meat-of-choice for an at-home skillet like this one.
