The idea with hacks is that it is supposed to make your life a lot easier. Breakfast should be a quick and easy meal.

So over the next few weeks we will be bringing you a couple of breakfast hacks every week to help you save time in the mornings.

Eggs in the Microwave

This is one I have been doing for some time. With so many people trying to get in more protein and less carbs these days they often want an option for quick and easy protein. This one is both cheap and easy to do and you don’t need to wash any pans.

You can either make it for breakfast or take the raw eggs to work and make it in a microwave oven there.

What you’ll need:

  • Two eggs
    Yep. That’s it.

    How to prepare them:

  • Crack the two eggs into a microwaveable bowl
  • Put in the microwave on high for 2 minutes
  • After one minute, open the microwave and stir it a bit
  • After two minutes, open the microwave and eat it
    If you want to add a bit of flavor to it you can add a little cheese or pieces of tomato or ham in after 1 minute.

    Bacon in the oven

    Why bacon? Because bacon of course.

    This is a fairly easy, healthy and relatively quick one. The ingredients you’ll need are shown below, however the foil is an optional extra. It does however help in making the clean up afterwards a bit less painful.

    As you put it all together, you should end up with it looking like this:

    How to prepare them:

  • After the bacon has been laid out, put them in a cold oven and then turn it up to 200 degrees Celsius / 400 degrees Fahrenheit
  • You can then start checking it from around 15 minutes
  • After 15 minutes they will be cooked and by 25 minutes they will be crispy, so cook’em as you like’em
    These are just the first two that we will be sharing now with more coming every week. The idea is to make sure that you steadily build up a couple of options for breakfast that normal people can make and actually afford.
