While breakfast is one of my favorite meals, I often don’t have time/appetite to eat it at 6:30 AM before I head to work.  But making a little something the night before which can be eaten at work seems like the ideal situation.  Here are several good ideas:

Fruit on the Bottom Yogurt Cups

To make this particular yogurt cup I layered about 1/2 cup of plain, whole-milk yogurt with a spoonful of berry jam, a handful of blueberries, a drizzle of honey, and a few walnuts. It made for delicious eating — I dug the spoon down to the bottom and it came up with a bite of everything. Sweet jam, tangy blueberries, and tart yogurt.

Oatmeal in Jars

Basically you combine oats and water, bring them to a boil, then cover and turn off the heat. Leave overnight and in the morning simply warm them up. They’ll be perfectly cooked — tender, chewy, and creamy.

Here I offer an idea: Do this just once on Sunday night, and divide the oatmeal between five jars. You’re immediately set up for a week of breakfasts! The great thing about steel-cut oats (well, the millionth great thing, I guess) is that they get even better as they are reheated. They stay chewy and creamy, and a few days in the refrigerator only improves their taste and texture. This is a great project for Sunday afternoon or evening, perhaps while you’re making dinner. Just make the oats, put them in your jars, and you’re good to go!
