Back To School Recipes And Tips


The days are beginning to shorten. Pencils and notebooks fill the stores. It must be that time: Back-to-School! 

Those three words bring a mix of emotions to any parent’s heart: sadness to see carefree summer days gone, happiness at having kids occupied all day long, terror at having to plan meals to keep those kids fueled and filled.  Let us take some of that terror away! Everywhere you look on social media, meal-prepping is front and center. There are tips and tricks to help everyone channel their inner domestic god or goddess.  Here at Krusteaz, we develop our mixes to make home-cooked meals and snacks tasty, convenient and family-friendly.  With a bit of planning and a few Krusteaz products in the pantry, your week just got easier.

For fast and filling breakfasts: think Krusteaz Buttermilk Protein Pancake & Waffle Mix.  Did you know that if you make a big batch on Sunday, you can stack leftovers with wax paper in between and keep them in an airtight container in the fridge? Reheat them in the microwave and spread with almond butter and jam, or pull pancakes apart and use them as bread for pancake breakfast sandwiches with thin slices of ham and cheese. Or bake up a bunch of Berry Protein Pancake Bites for grab-and-go ease.

For lunch boxes and driving-from-school-to-practice refueling, muffins are portable, filling and delicious. Some of our faves are Spicy Garden Cornbread Muffins and Pumpkin Muffins with Carrots and Nuts

Dinner doesn’t have to be a struggle:  Start with a Krusteaz mix and it’s super easy to turn out family favorites like Taco Stuffed Waffles, Brats in a Blanket, Gluten Free Double Corn & Ham Bake and Bacon, Cheddar and Egg Casserole.
