Is your morning routine as busy as mine is? Are you limited on time between waking up and heading out the door? I’ve got your solution.
This is a sponsored conversation with OXO, however, all opinions are mine.
If you’re anything like me, then you’re tired of barely having enough time to brew a pot of coffee, let alone make breakfast before you head out the door.
When you’re a mom, it’s even harder. My son is a growing 14-year old and constantly needs to eat, or so he thinks.
But, let’s face it, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. A quality breakfast is even more important.
Sure, I could pop some frozen waffles in the toaster, but who needs all that sugar first thing in the am?
This year, I’ve turned to what I call a micro-breakfast. Not only is it fast, it’s delicious, too.
All you need are a few products to get started and you’re already on your way to an easy breakfast for your busy routine.
Start by getting your water ready for a fresh, hot cup of coffee. With the Clarity Adjustable Temperature Kettle, you can select the precise temperature for your tea or coffee by simply twisting the knob.
Choose any temperature between 170 and 212°F, and the water is heated and held at your preferred temperature for up to 30 minutes. The Kettle is cordless when removed from the base, with a silicone surface so you can bring it to the table without worrying about damaging surfaces.
Add desired amount of water to kettle and set temperature to 200º. I love how the kettle shows you the progression of the temperature- no guessing how much longer until you water is hot enough.
Next, start your omelet. The Microwave Omelet Maker helps you create a delicious fluffy omelet in three minutes or less. The open design and rounded corners promote even cooking for classic, folded, diner-style omelets. The large-capacity Omelet Maker holds enough ingredients for 2- and 3-egg omelets, and folds and locks closed for steaming veggies before adding your eggs.
Add1/4 cup sliced raw mushrooms. Snap close the omelet maker and cook.
Add 1/2 cup liquid egg whites.
Leave open and cook (see recommended times on product packaging). Add 1/2 slice of pepperjack cheese to middle, fold over, open to add the remaining slice of cheese to top, close and set aside to let cheese met.
While the cheese is melting make your bacon. The Microwave Bacon Crisper makes bacon quickly, safely and in just a few simple steps.
The adjustable kickstand allows grease to drain into the built-in reservoir for healthier, crispier bacon in minutes. The silicone cooking surface and drain lid are each removable, easy to clean and work together to prevent splatter.
Now that the bacon is ready, set it on a plate with the omelet and serve. I make my coffee while my son is devouring his breakfast.
The OXO Good Grips Pour-Over Coffee Maker with Water Tank allows you to enjoy the perks of delicious, pour-over coffee with ease.
All you have to do is add ground coffee and hot water and the Coffee Maker takes care of the rest. The water tank automatically regulates water distribution for ideal brew time and the precise hole pattern distributes water evenly over coffee grounds.
A card is even included to take the guesswork out of making the perfect cup.
After adding your grounds, place water tank on top of the pour-over coffee maker. Then, place the entire unit on top of your coffee cup.
Add desired amount of hot water from your kettle and cover with the lid. Watch as your coffee is ready in just a couple of minutes.
It’s a perfect cup of coffee that reminds me of French press, but it’s so much easier.
