You need two small 6 cup muffin tins, about 8-9 eggs (maybe less), a pound of ground sausage, and 12 strips of bacon (we use turkey bacon).

Whisk the eggs together and brown the sausage. Spray the shit out of the muffin tins, wrap a piece of bacon around the inside of each tin, pour some eggs and browned sausage into the tin. Don't fill them up all the way with egg because it WILL expand. Put the tins in the oven at 350-375 or so until the eggs have cooked and then just wrap them in tinfoil and freeze them. Take them out and heat them up in the microwave when ready to nom.
I am going to the grocery store after work, for this specifically.

I'd be pretty tentative on eating 4 slices of even turkey bacon consistently..that's...a lot of sodium.

edit: Yeah they're surprisingly filling. My metabolism has been pretty crazy lately and even then, I'll get through one and still be pretty satisfied for 3-4 hours.

Microwaved egg, toasted bagel, and cheese. It's fast and portable. Plus if you want you can add a couple other things to it depending on how much time you have in the morning and how you feel.

I have such a good porridge recipe:

Ingredients:
A handful of frozen, banana slices*
1 cup of milk
1 cup of oatmeal
1 egg
Optional:
1 tsp cornmeal

1.)Pour milk and place banana slices into pot. Heat on medium high. Break up the banana slices with a wooden spoon if they are clumped together.
2.)The heat should start to melt the banana slices. This process should take 2 or 3 minutes. Stir occasionally so it does not boil over.
3.)Once the banana slices have mostly melted. Turn the heat to low. Add the egg, and the oatmeal. Stir continuously.
4.)As the porridge starts to cool down it should thicken into a custard. If you are impatient, you can add 1 or 2 teaspoons of cornmeal to speed up the custardization process. Serve in a medium sized cereal bowl.

*Slices taken from a ripe banana are the best and will melt quicker.

I know you said no oatmeal, but I'm gonna link to this refrigerator oatmeal anyway. You can make it ahead of time, it's hefty and super healthy with the chia seeds (which also absorb water and make you feel full longer), you don't have to cook anything, easily customizable for whatever flavors you want, and it comes in its own container, so you can just grab it out of the fridge and go.

I've been meaning to try it myself, but haven't yet, so full disclosure there. I'm really similar in the morning in not wanting to cook or do anything, so I've been excited to try this.

This is riffing off of RB's breakfast cup idea, but these look awesome!

my morning ruotine is either oatmeal (I keep a big thing of old fashioned oats at work) little bit of butter, and honey, good to go. Yogurt, banana or orange, 1 babybel cheese for more protein

sometimes if I am on client site they have a snack bar it's $2.50 for a granola thing with 2% milk and fruit is free

I have to wait an hour before I eat so I take my pills at home, go to work earlier and then eat

after I eat I have my Alive liquid vitamin mixed with a little bit of OJ 4 oz, some lemon juice, and 18 oz water.

Stone ground slow cooking oats take a while on the stove top, but I'm not sure if I'd want to leave them unattended while I took a shower. Once cooked you can mix in all sorts of stuff like jam, fruit, raisins, honey, Nutella and have a super-filling breakfast.

Cottage cheese topped with fruit is surprisingly filling.

Or you can make a breakfast casserole. There are dozens of recipes for these online. One basic version is to cook sausage ahead of time, line a large baking dish with bread, then top with cheese, beaten eggs, and sausage. Refrigerate overnight then bake for around 30 minutes. Some other versions use potatoes instead of bread. Hot, yummy, and filling.

Sometimes I make a whole mess of oatmeal and nuke it as I need it for breakfast. Also, cheddar cheese in COMPLETELY PLAIN (i.e. nothing save water and *maybe* some butter) oatmeal is really tastey. It's like eating semi-healthy grits.

I usually have a bagel and cream cheese, or buttered toast with honey drizzled over it.

Delicious.

you want an omelet ? prepare your fillings the night before, it will take less than 5 to cook that in the morning. I make one every morning, I cut the veggies that morning it takes less than 20 minutes, but I make coffee and clean up too.

Dont want to cook in the morning make a fritatta (sp?), an oven baked omelet the night before or make a big one and have it last a week.
