When I’m not feeling sickly for months at a time (stupid morning sickness!) I try to make breakfast on the weekend atleast a couple times a month. On days where I have a little extra time I make a big breakfast with plenty of leftovers that I can freeze for later. This has been a huge help now that I don’t feel like doing anything, other than the fact that we are running out of almost everything!
I love freezing muffins because no one in my house really appreciates muffins as much as I do and if I freeze them they won’t go to waste!
Freezing Method: Just put them in a Zip-Lock bag and Freeze!
Reheating Method: Microwave for about 30 Seconds each

We love making breakfast burritos, but we are stuck just making our favorite- Bacon, Egg and Cheese. My grandfather is the king of breakfast burritos, he makes a mix of ‘breakfast burrito stuff’ and eats it for breakfast everyday for days on end. His burritos are different every time, he uses whatever ingredients he has on hand. One of his main ingredients is potato chunks.
Freezing Method: Lay finished burritos on a cookie sheet or flat surface and freeze for an hour or two. After that time transfer the burritos to a Ziplock bag.
Reheating Method: Microwave for 2-3 minutes, until heated throughly
Our Breakfast Burrito Recipe:
- Package of Bacon
- Dozen Eggs
- 10 Burrito Size Tortillas
- Cook the bacon and Scramble the Eggs. Season the eggs to taste while cooking. Crumble bacon into small pieces and mix with eggs. Set Eggs and Bacon aside.
- Cook tortillas on the pan that the bacon was cooked in, just for 30 seconds-1 minute on each side.
- Put a few spoonfuls of egg and bacon mix into the center of the tortilla and sprinkle a generous amount of cheese on top.
- Fold the burrito closed, and enjoy!
We love pancakes here. Not only are they super easy to make, it is easy to make a huge batch (especially if you have a huge skillet) and be able to eat them whenever you want afterwards!
Freezing Method: Lay flat for 30 minutes in the freezer, then transfer to a ziplock bag. Refrigerate extras until you have time to freeze all of the pancakes.
Reheating Method: Microwave for 30 seconds for each pancake.
I love making hot pockets, but I also take the time to make my own dough. Making the dough is super time consuming so I don’t make these very often. If you buy premade cresent rolls dough or puff pastry it can be a really easy breakfast to make and freeze for later. My husband loves eating these because they don’t take long in the microwave and taste delicious. There are better instructions on my Berry Recipes post- go check that out for the full details. What I didn’t list over there (because I just did berry ones that time) was the many other combinations of what we put in them.
Eggs, Bacon and Cheese
Lunch Meat and Cheese
Nutella and Peanut Butter
