Can you believe it – summer is almost over and it’s back-to-school time! It feels like my daughter just got out of school yesterday and is already headed back in a couple weeks. Crazy! If you’re like me, you’re looking for easy and delicious breakfast recipes. Thanks to the Ohio Poultry Association, there are so many yummy and healthy ones out there!Breakfast Pizza Pockets Are The Perfect Back-To-School Breakfast Item!

If you remember, a couple months ago I went to Columbus for a fun even with OPA where I got to learn everything there is about eggs. Including the fact that one large egg contains 6 grams of high-quality protein! With back to school here, it’s important for your child to start the day off with a healthy breakfast so that they have better memory, improved mood, and less absences from school. With 13 essential nutrients, plus two compounds associated with cognition (choline and lutein), there’s no doubt that eggs should be a go-to for breakfast! A great way to prep for a week is to make some hard-boiled eggs. That’s what I do every Sunday for my work week and I plan on doing it for my daughter since she loves hard boiled eggs just like me. 🙂

Ohio Eggs has some yummy recipes on their site that are prefect for back to school – including Cookie Cutter Toad-In-The-Hole, Nacho Toad-In-The-Hole, Breakfast Puzzle Sandwich, Egg and Cheese Waffle Sandwich, and Tex-Mex Egg and Hashbrown Cups. This past weekend my family and I tried out their Breakfast Pizza Pockets – so good! Check out the recipe below!
