5 Best Make Ahead Breakfast Dishes - It Is a Keeper HERO 2

I’m going to be completely honest with you.  I am not a morning person.  Not by any stretch of the imagination.

I like to sleep.  And, getting out of bed is VERY hard for me.  I usually wait until the very last minute (after hitting snooze about 15 times) to get up.

Needless to say, mornings are hectic at my house.  Or, at least they were.

To help combat the morning chaos, I’ve found a few tips that help me make my morning routine even faster.

1.  Set the breakfast table the night before.

This is a huge help in our house.  I try to get as much as I can done the night before, including setting the table.

2.  Save time by making your own McCafé coffee at home.

I recently discovered McCafé coffee pods and ground coffee at Walmart.  These have helped streamline my morning routine and make it run smoother.  McCafe coffee is made with 100% Arabica Beans that is harvested from the rich soils and mountainous regions of the foremost coffee-growing areas of the world.  You  can brew a high quality cup of coffee right at home!

I’m kind of picky about my coffee, too.  My husband has a magical touch when it comes to making coffee.  He truly makes the best that I’ve ever had.  When he made the McCafe coffee in our Keurig, it was, hands down, the BEST coffee he has made so far!

I just love the richness and flavor.  The Premium Roast is my favorite, but I also love the French Vanilla.

Making your own McCafe coffee couldn’t be easier – especially, when brewed in a Keurig!  It’s ready in just a few short minutes.  This really helps streamline my morning routine.

There are now 8 delicious flavors to choose from at your local Walmart.  Plus, they come in bags or pods.  We used the regular ground coffee in our Keurig using this red filter.
