Your children may be sad that it’s time to go back to school, but one thing that they can look forward to is having a delicious breakfast every morning before they head out the door. Tired of making scrambled eggs and bacon? Want to try something a little more daring? Well, you’re in luck. We invited the Culinary Content Network to participate in the “Back-to-School Breakfast” recipe contest sponsored by Johnsonville as this week’s SWAT (Sharing With A Theme).
Curry and Comfort
If you enjoy savory breakfast dishes, then this is the recipe for you. It’s always a mad rush to get out of the house, but luckily you can assemble this recipe the night before, warm it up, fry an egg, and enjoy a delicious and healthy a.m. meal.

This is a simple family-friendly recipe you can make in advance. When your kids help prepare something, they are more likely to try it — let them crack and whisk the eggs for this dish. It's a great cooking lesson! Don't hesitate to come up with your own combinations to best suit your family's tastes. When the mornings are hectic, pop a freshly made breakfast burrito into the microwave and feel good about feeding your kids something fresh and nourishing. — Patti Stagich
What kid wouldn’t like the taste of a savory Johnsonville Sausage Breakfast Link wrapped in cheese and placed inside a soft, warm crescent roll? What parent wouldn’t like the same thing? We can’t think of many. — Dan Zehr
Waffles, sausage, and eggs are everything you desire in breakfast. Mini waffles act as bread to delicious fluffy eggs, Johnsonville sausage, and syrup — now that’s starting the day off right. For the Mini Sausage, Egg, and Waffle Sandwich recipe, click here.
Chocolate, cranberry, and blueberry muffins are delicious, but that’s not the only type of baked good you can enjoy for breakfast. Make a savory breakfast muffin with breakfast sausage, cheese, and chives. For the Cheesy Sausage and Chive Muffins recipe, click here.

These quesadillas are a fun and hearty dish that will give your kids loads of energy throughout the morning. Not only do the quesadillas provide plenty of protein, they've also got fiber and carbs from the whole-wheat tortillas and vitamin C in all the vegetables. It's a breakfast designed to be playful — but also incredibly satisfying. — Justine Fontinell

Frittatas are so easy and versatile — you really can use anything you have on hand. Start the recipe on a stovetop by browning the potatoes and sausage in a combo of butter and olive oil with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Then, simply stir in a dozen eggs, baby spinach, and Cheddar. Pop right into the oven and bake until golden, bubbly, and cooked through. It’s just two steps up from scrambled eggs.
