Freezer Cooking for Breakfasts

Posted By Jessica Fisher On July 12, 2010 @ 8:00 am In Freezer Cooking | 17 Comments


Breakfast can be a rough meal of the day. You know it’s good for you and your family to eat a good breakfast each morning, but getting it together can be a tough job to tackle.

Freezer cooking [5] can save the day!

You’ll be pleasantly surprised to see what great breakfasts you can pull off if you do some prep work ahead of time. Here are just a few ideas to get you started.

Here’s a run-down of my breakfast freezer meals this month:

[13]Over the course of the last couple days, my kitchen has seen some action. FishChick came down with a fever and my mom was here for a visit, so I didn’t do the concentrated all day cooking thing, but tackled things in fits and spurts.

  • Assembly-line mix-making resulted in the following: Instant Oatmeal Packets [14], Mix and Match Muffin Mix [15], Biscuit Mix [16], Brownie Mix [17], and Pancake Mix [18]
  • I found a loaf of Texas Toast on markdown at Sprouts [19] so I baked up some Oven French Toast. [20] I cooled it on a wire rack and then put it in the freezer in a 2-gallon freezer bag. I made some slices whole and cut others in half. I’ve got teenage boy eaters and itty-bitty, birdy girl eaters. So, now each has his or her own size.
  • I love having both a bread machine and a KitchenAid! I got both those babies doing double duty and made double batches of both Cinnamon Rolls [10] and Chocolate Butterhorns [21]. I flash froze them on every tray I own and then once they were solid, moved them to freezer bags.
  • Lastly, me and my food processor joined forces to make a huge batch of Raspberry Blueberry Scones. [12] These are so good! I cannot imagine what they would be like if I used heavy cream like the original recipe I tweaked says.

All I can say is that breakfast oughta be suh-weet around here in the coming weeks!

Curious about freezer cooking? Consider purchasing my cookbook, Not Your Mother’s Make-Ahead and Freeze Cookbook [22] from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or your local bookstore. It’s chock full with over 200 freezer-friendly recipes, planning pages, shopping lists, cooking plans, and basic and advanced how-to’s to making freezer cooking work for any home, family, and lifestyle.

What does breakfast look like at YOUR house?
