Whether you’re a morning person or battle the snooze button every day, Daylight Saving Time can throw us all for a loop. Yes, it’s wonderful to see that little extra bit of sun. But losing that one hour of sleep inordinately affects my morning routine. It takes extra time for me to slog through my closet and feed the cat and before I know it, I’m late.

If you’re like me, you need a breakfast that is ready and waiting before the day begins. That’s right, I’m talking about those handy, make-ahead meals that take just minutes to heat up or scarf down. Here, I’ve gathered 9 of our best ready-before-you-are breakfasts. Oh and you’re welcome for those few extra minutes of sleep.
