Freezer Breakfast Ideas

We are always looking for new and inventive ideas for breakfast.  While Riley will always be content with cereal, Kolby and I need variety.  I have searched for many ideas for quick and easy breakfast.  Here are some great recipes I have found:

  • Breakfast burritos. Cook scrambled eggs and wrap in flour tortillas. Wrap up in tin foil or plastic wrap and warm up in the microwave.

  • Try a cooked sausage wrapped in a pancake. Freeze wrapped up in tin foil and warm up in microwave (take off tin foil first!)

  • Flash freeze french toast cut in sticks for breakfast. These are great for kids to dip into syrup or eat as is.

  • Freeze muffins warm up for breakfast and serve with fresh fruit.

  • Breakfast Rollups
    Ham, cubed1 tablespoon olive oilBunch of green onions, chopped2 cups frozen hash browns, thawed8 eggs1/2 cup salsa, optionalSalt and pepper 1 Cup shredded cheddar cheeseWhole grain flour tortillasIn a skillet, add olive oil, cubed ham, chopped green onions and hash browns. Cook until potatoes are browned. Meanwhile while potatoes are cooking crack eggs in bowl.  Season with salt and pepper and add salsa if desired. Stir cheese into eggs. Take potatoes out of skillet and set aside. Add egg mixture to skillet and stir and cook until done. In a tortilla spoon potato mixture and top with eggs. Roll up and wrap in wax paper or tin foil. Continue with the remaining eggs and tortillas. Place each wrapped tortilla in freezer bag. For breakfast, unwrap and warm several minutes. 

  • Egg Cupcakes
