A table with breakfast items with the text "Top breakfast recipes you can bake in the oven"

Ah, breakfast. For me, the most important meal of the day.

Do you eat breakfast every morning? If not, is it because you’re not hungry? Or maybe you feel like you don’t have time?

What if you could prepare breakfast for the entire week- in less than one hour?

I am HUGE on meal prep. But I’m also a busy mom, which means I also need quick and easy.

I rounded up some of the best breakfast recipes that use the oven, to help get breakfast done faster and give you time to do other things while your breakfast is baking.

Why is baking so important?

Baking is the first step in my meal prep process. All three steps, in order, are:

  • Baking
  • Cooking
  • Chopping

You can read more about these steps in my Meal Prep 101 post!

And the reason why Baking is done first thing is because most oven recipes take between 20-60 minutes to bake.

While these recipes are baking, you can do things like:

  • Clean the kitchen
  • Chop some vegetables
  • Prepare other foods

These recipes are divided into different categories. Keep scrolling to find what you need!

Bread Recipes

This is a great recipe for either breakfast OR snacks. I love making this in the Fall and letting my house just permeate with the pumpkin smell!

This dough is made in a bread machine, but you can easily knead the dough by hand. I’ve always said this tastes just like the cinnamon swirl bread that Wegman’s used to make!

Greek Yogurt Banana Bread

This is such an easy recipe- every time I have a ton of brown bananas, this is the recipe I use. And the best part- it’s freezer friendly!

Egg Recipes

Even though this easy breakfast casserole is a freezer meal, I still recommend baking the egg mixture before freezing. This is a great way to use up leftover ham for the holidays!

Homemade egg mcmuffins on a baking sheet

Copycat Egg McMuffin

Here it is- the cheapest way to get your fast food fix every morning. I bake my eggs in a muffin tin to get the same look/consistency. And if you wanted to, you could buy the hash browns from the store to make it more like your favorite meal. This is great for a busy weekday morning!

Spinach mozzarella egg bake, in a casserole dish

Spinach Mozzarella Egg Bake

This is another amazing high-protein, low-carb breakfast recipe! The only way I get in my veggies in the mornings is with eggs, and this is the perfect recipe to do so. Mozzarella cheese, eggs, spinach, and a few spices are all you need!

I’m a huge fan of hiding vegetables in baked goods. These Carrot Cake Muffins seriously taste like a dessert- and are made with whole wheat flour for some extra fiber!

A lot of store-bought granola contain a TON of sugar. This granola recipe uses just a touch of honey and is an excellent addition to any yogurt parfait!

Enchiladas? For breakfast? Yep, this is a super unique idea for when you’re bored with the norm.

There is a bit of cooking involved because of the sausage, but 25 minutes in the oven means you have time for other things!
