Trying to get my three kids out of the house for school.

Where do I even start?  One thing I can tell you is that every day is different.  One day we will get out five minutes ahead of schedule, and the next day five minutes behind.   When you’re trying to get kids out of the house for school, every minute matters.

Lunch packing, picking out school clothes, finding hats, gloves, coats, snow pants and backpacks.  Me saying ” Go brush your teeth!” 20 times before we head out the door.  Oh yeah, and they also expect me to make them breakfast, a delicious, filling breakfast at that.

Not only is it important for me to serve my kiddos a  healthy breakfast, but I need breakfast too!  I can’t even count the times I have forgotten to eat breakfast and felt myself start to “crash” around 9 AM.  One of my New Years Resolutions for 2018 is to eat a satisfying healthy breakfast, even if I have to eat it in the car.

Which brings me to these scones.  Veggie-filled, flavorful and filling.

I know I keep posting recipes with MorningStar Farms® products even though I am not a vegetarian nor vegan.  I have always loved MorningStar Farms®, and have eaten their products since I was a college student. MorningStar Farms products are not just for vegetarians, they are also for regular, every-day people.  My family likes to eat Meatless on Monday as a way to stay healthy and help the environment.  I promise you, that these sausage and kale scones are flavorful and satisfying.  This is a delicious way to add more veggies to your diet.  These veggie sausages taste really good!  You really need to  “Taste It To Believe It”.

Right now, you can obtain a coupon for MorningStar Farms® products through Ibotta.

I found these MorningStar Farms® items in the vegetarian section of the frozen aisle at Walmart.

These Scones couldn’t be easier.  I just whipped them up in my kitchen aid mixer, and they cooked right up.   Since mornings are always so busy, here are five things I like to do in advance to keep my mornings as successful as possible.

5 Things to do the night before to make mornings more successful during the new year.  

  1. Having breakfast ready in advance.  MorningStar Farms® veggie sausage scones will help me have a healthy breakfast, so I feel full and energized for the rest of the morning.  Actually eating breakfast, a healthy one was a new years resoltion that I had for myself.    MorningStar Farms® breakfast products will help with this resolution immensely. MorningStar Farms® veggie sausage contains plant protein and is a great option for a balanced breakfast.
  2. Picking the kids’ clothes out the night before. 
  3. Pack the kids’ backpack’s and my gym bag the night before.
  4. Pack Lunches the night before.
  5. Organize all the school papers the night before.

Doing all these things the night before will allow me to enjoy my breakfast more completely, and feel healthier throughout my day.

These MorningStar Farms® Original Sausage Patties and these MorningStar Farms® Maple Flavored Sausage Patties did not disappoint.  Not only are they delicious in these scones, but I also tried these warmed up, on an English muffin too.
