Here’s 5 proven delicious farm fresh county fair pre-made breakfasts that will keep your family from skipping the most important meal of the day.
A classic breakfast favorite in my family, these burritos are also great on the go. So many options to fill that tortilla, too! The possibilities are endless.
I love using my farm fresh eggs, meats and veggies in my burritos. My favorite meat to use is sausage, but bacon and ham make delicious burritos, too. Breakfast burritos are just the right start to a busy day at the county fair.
What You Need:
How to Make Them:
First, decide what breakfast meats are you going to use. You can also make these meatless by simply using eggs and veggies, such as zucchini or peppers. But, why would you??
Either way, you’re going to need to spray your skillet with a great cooking non-stick spray. Or whatever else you normally use that prevents your ingredients from sticking to the pan. Then, prepare your meats and/or veggies in a skillet until cooked all the way through.
After the meats are completely cooked through, crack the eggs into the skillet with the meat. Then, use a spatula to start scrambling the eggs. I just flip and turn the egg/meat mixture until the eggs are nice and fluffy. Be sure all the eggs are cooked all the way through.
Finally, your burrito filling is complete. Lay out some tortillas and fill each one with filling. You’ll want just enough in each tortilla to be able to wrap it up easily. Sprinkle some cheese over the top of the filling. You can also add salsa now or later. In my opinion, later is better.
Fold Tortilla & Prepare for Freezing
First, fold the ends in. Take a little water on your fingers and rub on the outside of the tortilla to seal the end. This will help keep the end closed.
To freeze, you’ll need to wrap it in aluminum foil nice and tightly. Finally, you can use a sharpie to label it. Wa La! Burritos are ready to grab and heat up! They can be heated up frozen or you can thaw them in the fridge first. It takes about a minute or two to heat when thawed and about 5 minutes to heat when frozen.
If you don’t have tortillas, you can make the same egg and meat filling and use toast or English muffins to make sandwiches. Breakfast sandwiches are the second of the 5 county fair week breakfasts.
Better than McDonald’s. Really, they are! Another thing that’s great about them is that they can also be eaten one-handed. Perfect for the county fair week pre-made breakfasts list, right?
Well, indeed! County fair week pre-made breakfasts are not only delicious. County fair week pre-made breakfasts are nutritious, homemade, cheap and easy. The perfect grab & go county fair week pre-made breakfasts for every busy show kid on the way to the show barn.
What You Need:
How To Make Them:
First of all, you’ll need to decide what meat you will be using for your breakfast sandwiches. You could also add sliced veggies as well if serving these fresh.
If you choose sausage, form patties that will be the size of your muffin. Or if choosing ham, cut slices that will fit well with your muffin. It’s all about making these sandwiches easy to take along and eat one handed while starting tasks for the day.
Eggs will also be cooked sunny-side up and not scrambled. You can cook the eggs while the meat is cooking in another skillet at the same time. Be sure that both meat and eggs are cooked all the way through.
Prepare large squares of aluminum foil and set an English muffin bottom on each square. Place meat, egg, sliced cheese and veggie slices on top of the muffin. Then, finish with the top of the muffin. Wrap sandwich completely with foil. You can freeze these or place in the refrigerator for a day or two until ready to heat up.
These microwave quicker if thawed after freezing. Microwaving frozen takes about 5 minutes while thawed takes just a couple of minutes.
Swedish Almond Pancakes
Going back to my heritage, I grew up on these pancakes. My grandma made them as a treat for us quite frequently. She taught me how and when to flip them to ensure the best quality Swedish pancake.
These are super simple and quick to make. And did I mention Delicious? If you want a popular and fun quick breakfast, I highly suggest trying this. They are delicious with just about anything.
You can make the batter ahead of time so it’s ready to start griddling on show day morning. They really take just a few seconds. Then, your family can quickly fill their crepes and head out the door.
Finally, these crepes can also be made ahead of time, frozen and reheated quickly before leaving for a busy morning.
What You Need:
How To Make Them:
First, heat your pancake pan with a little butter. It’s very important that this pan stays slick and HOT!
Mix up flour, milk and eggs in a bowl. Add the almond and salt. You’ll want to achieve a runny and smooth mixture.
Then, with a large spoon or ladle, pour one spoonful onto the hot pancake pan. Pick up the pan by the handle and slowly rotate it around in a way that spreads out the batter to cover the entire pan. This will create a larger and thinner pancake.
After a few seconds, the pancake will be ready to flip. You’ll be able to tell by the bubbling in the batter. Same with the other side. It only takes a few seconds.
Finally, remove the pancake from the hot pan and place onto a place. Roll up like a tortilla immediately. Keep them warm until all the pancakes are made.
Tip: You’ll want to spray or re-lubricate your pan with butter or cooking spray after each pancake for easy flipping.
To enjoy these pancakes, top or fill with your favorite ingredients. Hence, it doesn’t take long to enjoy these because they are so delicious. This recipe makes about 12 thin pancakes. You may want to double it depending on family size.

First, Here’s What You Need:
Dozen farm fresh eggs
Optional: Breakfast meat such as sausage, ham or bacon
And How To Make Them:
First of all, preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Cook breakfast meats and veggies on the stove top in a skillet. They don’t have to be completely cooked through.
Next, break eggs into a bowl and whisk until runny. Then, add in cooked breakfast meats and veggies. Add in the shredded cheese.
Grease or lubricate your muffin pans. Then, fill each muffin hole about 3/4 of the way full with the egg mixture. Sprinkle a little cheese on top.
Bake egg muffins until the egg is cooked all the way through for about 12 – 15 minutes. Your meat should be cooked all the way through as well. I like to do the “toothpick check” to make sure the eggs are cooked all the way through.
Heat them up in the microwave before enjoying.
