We’ve all heard the saying that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

But let’s face it. You’re a busy college student who’s got early morning classes, and you don’t have much time to make a trip to the dining hall for a sit-down breakfast.

But it’s no fun for students to sit through class with empty stomachs growling for all to hear.

You’ve got to eat something…but what? I mean, some colleges don’t even allow kitchen appliances such as toasters or hot plates

That’s why we’ve compiled the best recipes you can make for breakfast in a college dorm room using just a microwave and mini fridge. 

While you may not be able to enjoy your favorite avocado toast, you can nosh on more than just a granola bar with these easy breakfast ideas.

Although cooking opportunities may be limited when it comes to dorm life, that doesn’t mean college students can’t start the day with a delicious and nutritious breakfast.
