If you’re anything like me, you’re always short on time in the morning. It doesn’t matter how early I rise — I either get caught up in the morning news, or assembling an outfit — and suddenly I’m left with little time to create a decent breakfast.

Check out these great morning meal ideas, some of which can be prepared while you’re waiting for your fresh brew to finish percolating:
