Pre-Cooked Eggs (above)

You’d never know these jammy eggs topped with crispy quinoa came from a box. But this on-the-go snack  delivers quality food in a pinch. Perfectly pre-cooked free-range eggs from Peckish (from $3.99/2-egg pack) are paired with punchy seasonings like Everything Bagel, Salt & Pepitas, and Chili-Lime Rancheros.

Premade Pizza

Budding Bay Area pizzaiolos can use Vicolo Pizza’s cornmeal crust pizza (pictured, $8.99) as a blank slate. Cappello’s sheep’s-milk cheese on gluten-free crust ($14) will convert store-bought pizza naysayers nationwide

Pancake Mix

While people who make homemade batter swear they’ll never go back to store-bought mix, Old School Mill challenges them with a minimalist mix of flours ($5.99) that yields the fluffy old-fashioned buttermilk pancakes we all crave.
