Back-To-School Recipes

With back-to-school season comes busy mornings and nights. Parents face the task of getting kids out the door (on time) with breakfast eaten, homework finished and lunch packed. As we all know, this is a lot easier said than done.

You have enough to worry about during the week, so it helps to have a plan when facing a mob of hungry kiddos. Whether it be breakfast, lunch, afternoon snacks or dinner, we’ve put together a list of time-saving beef recipes to make your life easier!

Breakfast

It really is the most important meal of the day. Feeding your kids a protein-rich breakfast will keep them feeling full up ’till that lunch bell rings.

Breakfast Tacos

A Texan staple, breakfast tacos are the tastiest way to make sure your kids get 25-30 grams of protein in the morning. Just throw leftover beef from the night before in a tortilla and they’re out the door!

Beef Sausage & Egg Muffin Cups

These are great for making ahead of time. Keep a batch stashed in the fridge to zap in the microwave!

Shredded Beef & Egg Quesadillas

What kid doesn’t love quesadillas? Serve with fruit or avocado for a balanced breakfast!

Nutritious Lunches

No matter how easy PB&J sandwiches are to make, they just don’t have enough protein to keep kids full for the rest of the day. Here are other pack-able lunch ideas that are just as quick and convenient as the almighty sandwich.

Steak & Apple Wraps

Grill extra steak on Sunday to throw into these protein-packed wraps!

Beef Bao Buns

Move outta the way, boring sandwich! All the kids will be wanting to trade for these yummy buns.

Easy Dinners

Dinner can always be hard to get on the table. School activities make it even more difficult, and sometimes you just don’t feel like slaving in the kitchen after a long day. But feat not! Most of these recipes take care of themselves while you’re at work, or can be cooked in under 30 minutes.

Stir-Fry

It doesn’t get much easier than stir-fry. Start with thin beef strips and add your favorite veggies and sauce!

Slow Cooker Life-Savers

Let your slow cooker do the work for you! Just throw in the ingredients and go.
