Every Friday I feature a small round-up of five delicious recipes from here and around the web. This week’s topic: 5 Easy Breakfast Recipes to Make Ahead and Freeze.
Mornings are the worst time to try to get a satisfying breakfast into that sleepy belly of yours. But you’re hungry! And you want to eat right, and you want your family to eat right too! But you have exactly two minutes to make that happen. Guess what? You’re in luck! If you’ve got a little extra time on the weekends and a freezer in your life, you can assemble tasty breakfasts ahead of time and stick them in the freezer. A little thaw and those harried mornings are made. Good morning, belly!
Now if only someone would invent a coffee robot that would deliver fat mugs of strong coffee right to our nightstands. We keep hoping.
Grab & Go Bagel Breakfast Sandwiches
These are terrific for making in huge batches and having ready in the freezer. Bonus: they can totally be customized for vegetarians and carnivores. Bacon for him and none for me, thanks. Next time I’m going to add some chopped spinach.
Make-Ahead Breakfast Quesadillas from Oh My Veggies
With black beans and scrambled eggs, these delicious numbers boast a serious boost of protein. My kind of breakfast!
Freezer Breakfast Burritos from Handle the Heat
What’s more awesome than a breakfast burrito? One that’s already made and waiting for you in the freezer! Love that these can be customized to individual tastes.
Cheddar Corn Quinoa Mini Frittatas
Three cheers for healthy protein! Super-healthy quinoa makes these portable little frittatas ultra satisfying. Another option: Mini Margherita Quinoa Frittatas.
Vegan Aussie Bites from Oh My Veggies
A lot of trial-and-error went into this hearty muffin/granola hybrid recipe that I created for Oh My Veggies, so our freezer was full of Aussie bites. Until I went to grab one and what had been a stuffed-to-the-brim gallon-size bag was now just one lone, single little bite. Turns out my husband had been dipping into the freezer every morning before work. These freezer-friendly bites are satisfying, delicious, and – maybe best of all – perfectly portable.
And a couple more breakfast ideas for the freezer …
Hearty pancakes and tasty muffins both freeze extraordinarily well. We just pop pancakes into the toaster; muffins just need a bit of time at room temp or a quick zap in the microwave.
Those grab-and-go bagel sandwiches sound amazing! That is totally my kind of breakfast.
Thank you, Karen! This is a great collection of recipes. I love freezer cooking. These breakfasts look great for busy mornings or for when company is visiting. Pinning now. Thanks, again.
Great ideas here! I’m almost always scrambling int he morning. These will be great!
I’ve always had a hectic life but my husband just started a new job where he works 12 hour shifts. He has so little time in his life that we’re on the lookout for easy breakfasts (and lunches, and dinners) for him to take along. This collection looks great. Thanks for sharing!
Yummy! I love the sound of those Aussie bites! Grab one or two of those and a cup of yoghurt and your day is sure to be off to a great start! Thanks for the great ideas to break me out of my breakfast rut and give me some more time in the morning!
