Weekday mornings can be hectic around here. Everyone is trying to get out of the house at the same time while I’m scrambling to find a nutritious breakfast for us to eat before we all leave.

A while back, I decided to do this one small thing on Sundays to make the weekday mornings go a lot more smoothly.  The solution you may ask? To make our weekday breakfast ahead of time.  I knew I needed the breakfast to be something that we would all love and be good for us.  It needed to be a hardy breakfast that could be eaten on the go; so, I came up with homemade delicious and nutritious pop tarts.  These are not the type of pop tarts you will find in any box.

Breakfast On The Go Pop Tarts

Hand held savory breakfast pop tarts made to each persons preference is the perfect solution. I use store-bought frozen pie crusts, spread it with Gold ‘n Soft and layer in their choice of ingredients; eggs, bacon, roasted veggies, and a variety of cheeses. The breakfast pop tarts just need to be wrapped with parchment paper and thrown into the toaster to warm up and everyone is out the door within minutes.

Choose from these ingredients or come up with your family’s favorites.

Spread the entire bottom layer with Gold ‘n Soft.

I love using Gold ‘n Soft because it is so easy to spread.  There is no wait time for it to soften and it goes on smoothly without pulling on the pie crust dough.

Add your filling, cover with the top layer of pie crust dough and crimp edges with a fork.

Bake in the oven and when cool wrap each in parchment paper.  Label with ingredients and place in the freezer.

Defrost in the fridge the night before you want to eat it.

Then just pop the parchment wrapped tart in the toaster to warm up!


The weekday mornings are much calmer (thankfully) and I can enjoy my mornings again knowing my family has a delicious breakfast that is also good for them.

Weekends are when I love spoiling my family for breakfast with french toast or pancakes and nothing tastes better than when they are drenched in Gold ‘n Soft.

Did you know Gold ‘n Soft spread has no cholesterol or hydrogenated oils, and has zero trans fats per serving, all while having the great taste of butter?  I enjoy how it is so very easy to spread even right after I take it out of the refrigerator.

I got my Gold ‘n Soft at Smart & Final click on the picture below to see what store carries Gold ‘n Soft near you.

You’ll be glad you did!

  2. Eloise says:

    This is awesome, thank you the the recipe… I’ve always wanted to try making homemade pop tarts but never took the challenge to do so. You have inspired me to make these for me and the kids ; )

  3. Cynthia says:

    Everybody wanting to get out of the house at the same time 😀 😀 it brought back memories when we were in school living at my parent’s house! I’ll have to give this a try, most days I’m having cereal or oats or yogurt, but I much rather have a savory breakfast like these pop tarts!

  4. Ashley @ GrowingSpangs says:

    Genius!! I love that I can put anything in them, and they seem like they’d freeze pretty well. I’m going to have to try this – getting a decent breakfast is a chore in this house at the moment, but I’m a big freezer meal prepper. Thanks!

  5. Tanya says:

    I used to love pop tarts – the bad ones – when I was a kid, toasted and slathered in butter. Now that I’m trying not to eat like a 12 year old, I love this idea! Thanks for sharing. ?

    I’ve had sweet pop tarts, but this takes it to another level. I’m getting hungry just looking at the photos. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Candy Rachelle says:

    Hey, this is really cool…making your own pop tarts! The store bought ones are so full of sugar. Making your own, you can add your own stuffing…whatever you want. I love it!
