Bring Back Breakfast This Weekend with Hungry Jack Giveaway

by on October 22, 2013 · 66 comments

Mornings can be a little hectic during the work and school week, so I appreciate a leisurely weekend breakfast more than ever. In fact, I am so enthusiastic about weekend breakfasts that I’ve joined Hungry Jack’s “Bring Back Breakfast This Weekend” campaign and am giving away samples of new pancake and waffle mix flavors plus an awesome Belgian waffle maker!

But first, let’s just compare and contrast. This is what our weekday breakfast typically looks like.

Weekday Breakfast

And this is weekend breakfast! Is it like this at your house?

Weekend Breakfast

If so, carry on! If not, here are some tips to help you bring back breakfast this weekend.

1. Don’t knock yourself out trying to bake breakfast breads from scratch. Cinnamon rolls are awesome, but who wants to wake up at 4:00 AM on the weekend? This is why pancakes and waffles are considered breakfast food.

2. Serve dessert for breakfast! You obviously wouldn’t do this every day, but it might tempt the late sleepers to wake up a little earlier on weekends. Speaking of which, did you know you can use pancake mix to make Cinnamon Raisin Bar Cookies? I’m going to try these this week and will report back.

3. And here’s another fun item I just invented. Well, sort of. I looked it up after I invented it and apparently lots of people are already doing it. You can put Hungry Jack Cinnamon Spice Pancake Mix in a cake ball pop maker and make breakfast pancake pops. I haven’t tried freezing them, but if they freeze as well as pancakes, you could freeze them, thaw them in the microwave and serve them as pancakes on the go during the week.

Pancake Balls

But I’m not giving away a cake ball maker. I’m giving away a gorgeous Belgian waffle maker to help make your weekend breakfasts PERFECT. For a chance at winning the giveaway, just leave me a comment describing both your weekday breakfast and your weekend breakfast. I will pick one giveaway winner by Saturday, October 27, so make sure to get your comments in by October 26 at midnight. Also, join me in “liking” Hungry Jack’s Facebook page where you can communicate with some of the team members, see product updates and keep track of any new promotions.

Disclosure: This post was sponsored by Hungry Jack, but the opinions expressed are my own. And yes, you really can make excellent pancake balls with pancake mix.

My weekday breakfast consists of oatmeal with a banana and on the weekends it’s usually more of a lunch than breakfast!

Weekday breakfast is typically cereal, low-fat milk and fresh fruit before running out the door! Weekend is more relaxed — baked oatmeal, whole-wheat toast and eggs, yogurt and fresh fruit, etc. Would love to add waffles!!

My weekday breakfast is normally either a Kind bar or some packaged instant oatmeal. On the weekends I like to make pancakes (apple, blueberry, etc) or different kinds of omlettes with veggies from my garden!

On weekdays, I usually have yogurt and a banana, maybe some toast. On the weekends, my husband makes breakfast burritos, with eggs, sausage, cheese, pepppers, onions.

Our weekday breakfasts are generally quick: cereal and fruit, oatmeal and fruit, quick scrambled eggs. . . and fruit. You get the picture. Saturday breakfast is often breakfast tacos from our favorite local taco joint, but Sundays we have a leisurely home-cooked meal that can include pancakes, waffles, omelettes, migas, or whatever else we’re in the mood for. I love Sunday breakfast!

Crystal October 25, 2013 at 3:00 pm

My weekday breakfast is always the same, one egg over easy on wheat toast. Every weekend I make an oven pancake and sausage for atleast on of the days. It’s my daughters favorite.

David October 25, 2013 at 3:49 pm

My typically weekday breakfast is non-existant – I skip even though I know I shouldn’t. On the weekends I just love donuts & freshly brewed coffee!

Sue October 25, 2013 at 6:17 pm

I am an egg person during the week, my husband is a cereal eater during the week. On the weekends we indulge in pancakes, waffles, or muffins. Things like ebelskiver, rolls, or homemade English muffins, are for when we have visitors.
