Save Time In The Morning With These Homemade Toaster Pastries

Morgan is a writer on the branded content team who loves breakfast food almost as much as she loves dogs.

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but between rushing to get the kids to school and running around to get ready for work, there’s never enough time to prepare a satisfactory morning meal.

Thankfully, chef Vanessa Cantave has come up with a recipe for a delicious breakfast that doesn’t eat up any time in the morning, and she is teaching us how to make it on this week’s installment of The Hostess Next Door.

To save time in the morning, Vanessa likes to whip up fruity toaster pastries over the weekend, filled with frozen berries and Smucker’s® Fruit and Honey™ Blueberry Lemon Fruit Spread. Not only does the Smucker’s® spread save prep time, it also adds a sweet kick to Vanessa’s homemade toaster pastries!

Vanessa’s toaster pastries will quickly become a family favorite. Plus, it’s easy to switch up the flavors with other Smucker’s® Spread flavors like Strawberry and Triple Berry!

These toaster pastries can be frozen for up to three months, so don’t be afraid to make a huge batch all at once and keep them on hand for breakfasts to come!

Check out Vanessa’s toaster pastries recipe below, and make sure to SHARE this recipe with fellow busy parents!
