Weekday mornings can be a challenge – especially if you have kids and work. Most people are thankful to get out the door on time. Breakfast – if they have the time for it – is usually something that they can pop in the microwave or toaster while they’re searching for their keys. And often, they find themselves eating on the way to their destination.
Breakfast is the meal that helps fuel your day and keeps you healthy, so it’s important that you and your kids eat something of substance. With hardly any time to breathe, though, you’re likely wondering how you could possibly fit such a thing in. By dedicating a little time on the weekends – or whatever days you’re off – there are a few breakfasts that you can make ahead of time.
If you love the idea of waffles in the morning, you’re in luck. Make enough for your family, let them cool, and then place them in freezer bags. When you’re ready for them, pull them out and heat them up.
You can also make sausage, egg, and cheese or bacon, egg, and cheese burritos ahead of time. After they’ve cooled, roll them in individual paper towels, put them in a freezer bag, and let your family fill up all week.
Biscuits are another great option to premake and freeze. You can leave them plain or make sausage, egg, and cheese or bacon, egg, and cheese. You can also make and freeze gravy if you choose.
