Friday 5: Freeze Ahead Breakfasts For School

5 Make Ahead BreakfastsHey Eveyone!!!  Ready for the weekend!!!  I know I sure am!!!  Monkey is so excited about school starting Monday that she is going nuts!  She is trying to drive me nuts!  So, tonight we are making some freeze ahead breakfast stuff that she can heat and eat before school.  We have made them in the past and they worked out well, except that we tend to do one at a time and burn out on them before they are gone.  To remedy this issue, we are doing a variety.  Smart thinking!  So, here is your Friday Five of Freeze Ahead Breakfasts you can make for the kids or adults to have before it’s off to the daily grind!!!

So: Weekend Agenda:  Make Ahead Breakfasts Baby!!!

Then all ya gotta do is stick em in the fridge the night before and you’ve got breakfast!  Heat and eat the healthier way!!!

These are great because you can put anything you want in them!  You can even slip in some veggies and the kids will love them still!!!

Oh, come on, you know you love those little expensive things!  Now you can make them at home, fraction of the cost and way less fat (should you choose, of course!)


 Either.  Both.  Doesn’t matter.  The great thing is you can add in chocolate chips, berries, nuts, whatever you like!!!  Plus, these don’t have to be thawed, just pop em in the toaster!  (or toaster oven)


To make the recipe I have and freeze, just pull it apart after it’s cooked and freeze individual servings!  Yummy!  Wrap the servings in plastic wrap after they’ve cooled and you are good to go!


5.  Muffins
Any kind!!!  Healthy or not!  You can even make mini muffins for the little guys!  They are great because the kids don’t even have to heat them!  Just thaw them overnight on the counter (it won’t hurt, but you can thaw them in the fridge too) and enjoy!

What’s your Monkeys favorite breakfast???

6 eggs

1 tsp salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

3/4 chopped onion, divided into 3

3/4 c chopped tomato, divided into 3

1/4 c fresh cilantro, chopped and divided into 3


  1. In a bowl, beat together eggs, salt, pepper and 2 tbsp water until blended.

How Do You Like Your Eggs? Eggtastic #Giveaway Ends 10/19

eggtasticEggs are probably one of the most popular breakfast item in history.  If you are from the country (or somewhere close) you can probably even find fresh eggs locally.  When I was young, my Great Grandfather owned chicken houses and I remember riding through collecting eggs as a child.  Nothing reeks quite as bad as a chicken house, but those eggs fresh are fabulous.

As an adult, having the time to cook eggs for breakfast has taken a distant back seat to needing to get my coffee fix.  Becoming a mother will reduce that even further.  Though as a mother, it is also very important that I maintain begin (let’s just be honest) good nutrition.  I am excited that the Eggtastic is going to help me with that, I can have an omelet in less than 3 minutes!  That is fabulous!Eggtastic Review & GiveawaySo I know there is a fun little infomercial that we are all super excited to see, but we also know that those infomercials don’t often give the results they are intended to.  Let’s face it, they call it TV magic for a reason!  However, after having had the pleasure of trying it out, I’m actually convinced.  While my omelet didn’t turn out as pretty as the ones on the video, it tasted fabulous.  I made mine with homemade salsa and I definitely plan to do so again!  In literally a minute and a half, I had breakfast while my coffee was still brewing!
