I needed something to jazz up our morning breakfast routine. It seems like we are always grabbing a bowl of cereal or I am making some scrambled eggs and sausage every morning. I think the kids are getting a little bored. With school in session, I want to be sure that their tummies are filled so that they can concentrate on their school work. While they would be perfectly happy eating cereal or pancakes every morning, I want to incorporate more fruit in their breakfast. While I was thinking about all of this, the idea of making Breakfast Kabobs popped into my head.
On my weekly grocery trip to Meijer I found Jif® Flavored Spreads on the shelf next to the peanut butter. We are huge peanut butter fans so I thought the maple spread would work well on the mini-pancakes that I was making for the kabobs. Jif Flavored Spreads are naturally flavored and contain no artificial ingredients. They are also non-GMO, & gluten free which makes them a great option for the entire family. We love spreads for our son because its an easy way to get more protein into his diet without a fight.
Speaking of mini-pancakes, I took a little help from the store and purchased Hungry Jack® Pancake & Waffle Mix to create my little pancakes. Hungry Jack is one of our favorite pancake mixes because it gives us delicious, hearty pancakes & waffles without fail each and every time. Hungry Jack is perfect for those days when nothing but pancakes will do. When you are making them for kabobs be sure that you don’t get them too large. These little guys are about the size of silver dollar.
To create your breakfast kabobs you will need skewers, sausage, mini-pancakes, Jif Maple Spread and your favorite fruit combination.
- Sausage Cooked according to the package directions and quartered
- Banana Slices
- Strawberries or other fruit of choice
- Jif® Flavored Maple Spread
- Hungry Jack® Syrup optional
Spread JIf maple spread onto mini pancakes. I just did one side of them but you could put the spread on both sides if you wish.
Take skewers and start by placing a piece of sausage on the end. I found that the sausage help secure everything on the skewer and it kept things from falling off.
Alternate by placing each ingredient on the skewer.
Finish with a final piece of sausage to secure.
Pour a little bit of syrup (optional) over the skewers.
An optional ingredient is to drizzle a little Hungry Jack® Syrup over the top of your skewers. The maple spread tastes great on the pancakes so you don’t need the syrup but it adds a bit of sweetness and moisture to the dish that your little ones will love.
I couldn’t be happier with how the breakfast kabobs turned out. They were a huge hit and have already been requested for breakfast again this week. I hope that your mornings are going smoothly in this back to school season. I am excited to try even more new morning recipes and get my kids started on the right foot everyday!
