Frozen Homemade Breakfast

I try hard to prepare any food ahead of time than can be prepared in advance. It saves time in the long run and I feel less stressed. Here are some ideas in the way of breakfast foods:

  • Pancakes - The next time you make pancakes for your family double or triple the recipe. Cook the extra pancakes and freeze them. They're easy to pull out and heat up, either in the oven or the microwave, and they're still homemade.
  • Muffins - Muffins are easy to prepare but take time to bake. Make several batches and keep them in Ziplocks in the freezer. When you want one for breakfast take it out and microwave it for no more than 20 seconds on high. Muffins are also a great way to add wheat bran, wheat germ, or other healthy ingredients to breakfast.
  • Breakfast Burritos - These make for wonderfully filling breakfasts. Scramble tofu (I suppose you could use eggs), black beans, cheese, veggies (onions, peppers, whatever you want,) and salsa or hot sauce in a pan. Fold into tortillas and freeze. I usually wrap these in foil so I can put them directly in the oven from the freezer. Remove the foil to microwave, though!
