Breakfast on a Stick for Lunch {making lunch fun for kids series}

Thank you for sharing!

So, I’m not a huge “throw away the leftovers” fan, but sometimes I just cook too much. My dad teases me that I cook for an army. So, I end up with these random plates of some small-ish amount of everything laying around after we eat. Every. Time. It’s really annoying. But, since school is starting again and I have kiddos that want their lunch boxes full, I can totally start getting rid of the leftovers more efficiently (because really, I don’t like snacking on them all day–or do I?). This is one of those recipes to get rid of those leftovers fast. Breakfast on a Stick. Cute, delicious, and puts a smile on my kids’ faces. Priceless.

This is a fantastic idea for getting rid of leftovers--and I cute idea for kid's lunchboxes!

Ingredients for Breakfast on a Stick

  • 5 Cake Pop Sticks – 4-inch sticks are best
  • 10 cubes of cheese (I like mild cheddar for this, that’s my son’s fave, but you do whatever floats your boat–or your kid’s boat if they’re the ones eating it–no judging here)
  • 1/2 cup scrambled egg leftovers (about 1 egg)
  • 2 1/2 breakfast sausages
  • 1 pancake leftover

  5. Cut “x”s in the center of each pancake piece. Set aside.
