Easy Breakfast Pockets

I swear, mornings seem to bring out the madness in our household sometimes. While we all have our routines and responsibilities, chaos usually ensues. But the one thing we make sure we do is start off the day with a good breakfast. Since Naomi is 5 weeks away from giving birth to our new son and we’re not big on sending the boys to school with bellies full of cold cereal or Eggo’s, I actually woke up earlier than everyone and made these amazingly delicious and easy-to-make Breakfast Pockets.

These breakfast pockets are ridiculously awesome and even easier to make. Literally just a few ingredients and take just 20 minutes to make from start to finish. For Cole and me – it’s scrambled eggs, bacon and cheese. For Naomi, she always adds crazy stuff into her eggs, so I portioned out her scrambled eggs and added one tablespoon of feta cheese and two tablespoons of tabouli. Super adaptable for everyone.

These ended up being big hits. I’ve never seen Cole (all 44.4 pounds of him) eat so much food prior to school. He’s usually concerned with putting on some cool high socks, picking out a baseball hat and watching an episode of Spongebob or last night’s Lakers game. And Naomi? Let me say that I am always nervous cooking for her, since she is a true pro. That will never change. So hearing and seeing how much she loved it truly made my day.

So trust me on this one, you can’t go wrong with these breakfast pockets. Give them a try and you’ll be the hero of the day.

  • I love this recipe, my oldest son has been on a breakfast Hot Pocket kick for a long time now and I always groan a little when I buy them every single week at the store. I’m gonna give these a try. : )

    These look so fun! Sounds like our mornings over here especially with my little man. (His middle name happens to be the same as your little one… But with a K.) And, Spongebob is (sadly) a part of our mornings, too. My boys are going to think these are way fun to have. I bet they do really well to make a bunch ahead of time and freeze. Have a great Wednesday!

    • Thanks Gloria! They are really so simple, and easy enough for those crazy mornings. One or two of them, some Spongebob, and a smoothie, and we’re all set. Happy Wednesday!

  • These are great! I’ve got a teenager that could eat cereal everyday (hard to kick them out of that habit). This is such a wonderful idea, can’t wait to try.

  • Thank you Erika! They are really easy, hope you and your teenager like them!

    Is there a recipe for the tabouli feta version or are you just using up leftovers?

    • Hi Jenny, we literally just asked the guy at the deli to give us a small serving of tabouli, which made things easy. Then you just skip the bacon & cheese, add a tablespoon of feta cheese and two tablespoons of tabouli. Hope that helps!

    Totally digging on this recipe. Even though we have time to cook breakfast everyday, I would love to make a batch and put into the freezer for gym morning.
