Satisfying Snow Day Breakfasts

Snow falls overnight and you wake up to find that both the office and school are closed. You crawl back into bed for a couple of hours and wake up to a full house (full of hungry bellies).  With the kids home from school, it’s a great time to get the entire family in the kitchen and cook a big breakfast. After all, you’ll need to fuel up before a day packed with sledding, snowball fights, and snowman construction. These breakfast recipes are perfect for chilly snow day mornings. Put on your coziest sweatpants and fuzziest wool socks and head to the kitchen.

No snow day breakfast is complete without a piping hot cup of coffee. Enter to win a Hamilton Beach® 2-Way FlexBrew Coffee Maker using the Rafflecopter widget at the bottom of this post. You can make a full pot for the family and take a cup to-go when you head outside to enjoy the winter wonderland.
