luvmyff--this morning I made breakfast pockets for the kids. I am sure they can be frozen and they don't take much to make. I have a sandwich maker, buttered two slces of bread, added cooked bacon, a beaten egg and some cheese. Cooked until they were done. These would be easy to freeze individually and just nuke it in the morning. My kids loved them. Even the little "I don't like anything" one ate them. I was proud of myself. (kind of like the night I made the corn dog cass. Everyone liked it---I bragged for 2 days!) Muffins also freeze well. Muffins, some fruit and milk make a good filling breakfast. (i use canned fruit when I don't have fresh and they love it just the same)

since everyone is talking about about we post our favorite ones??

I have a bread recipe that I turned into a muffin recipe and it is very good. I got this from

Applesauce Bread~makes 2 loaves
3 cups all-purpose flour
3 eggs
2 cups white sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
2 cups applesauce
1 cup raisins (optional)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup sour cream

1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour two 9 x 5 inch loaf pans.
2 Beat together eggs, sugar, and oil. Blend in applesauce, and then sour cream or buttermilk. Mix in flour, baking powder, soda, and cinnamon. Stir in raisins. Pour batter into prepared pans.
3 Bake for 80 minutes. Cool on wire racks.

I just put them in muffin tins and cooked for about 20 mins. My family seems to think that they are better than the bread. (I can't remember how many muffins I made though

LuvMyFF those Applesauce muffins sound soooo good, can't wait to try them. Have to get to the store to buy more applesauce today, DD takes applesauce and peanut butter sandwishes in her lunch nearly everyday. Never hardly wants anything different. I am terrible at making breakfast on the week-days but usually try cinnamon toast or cereal, just something to get them fed and out the door quickly for school. Our elementary school is doing free breakfast for all kids this year but DD won't eat their breakfast, don't know why, they have cereal, biscuits, eggs, bacon, sausage, 10 year old girls go figure?????

Here is a recipe I got from I don't remember where but you put it in the crockpot the night before and it is done for breakfast. haven't tried it yet but it sounds good.

Breakfast Casserole

1 bag (32 oz.) frozen southern style hashbrown potatoes
1 pound bacon, cut into pieces, fried and drained.
1/2 cup diced onions
1 green pepper diced
3/4 pound cheddar cheese diced
1 dozen eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
salt & pepper

Layer the frozen potatoes, bacon, onions, green pepper
and cheese in the crockpot in two or three layers. Finish
up with cheese. Beat the eggs, milk and mustard, salt &
pepper together. Pour over the whole mixture. Cook on
low for ten to twelve hours.

Serves 10

I tried the crockpot recipe. It wasn't too bad. It had a decent flavor. I had to drown my in ketchup, but anything with egg and hashbrown needs to be a rule of life around here. My oldest didn't like it, but everyone else did. The only problem with it is that it doesn't seem to reheat real well. Get kind of watery.

The casserole with bread does reheat better. It doesn't get so watery.

breakfast ideas

When my three boys were teens with HUGE appetites, one of their favorites for breakfast was a breakfast burrito (or two, or three)
I'd take leftover baked potatoes, cubed,;cooked bacon or sausage, scrambled eggs and shredded cheese. These ingredients, I would combine, reheat and wrap in a warm tortilla. You could add salsa or even catsup if they prefer a mild taste.

breakfast ideas
LUVmyFF the Applesauce muffins sound so good and I bet my homemade applesauce would work well in this recipe. As for quick breakfasts I am planning to make Breakfast sandwiches with sausage and freeze them. That way I can just heat in the microwave when we are having a slow morning. I have not tried freezing them,but have heard it works very well. I need to get moving as school starts on Wednsday !!!! I'll let everyone know how it goes.

I plan to make and freeze pancakes this week so we'll have school morning breakfasts. The only problem is that as soon as my DS finds them in the freezer, they're gone!

blushing I know what you mean!!!

I know what you mean. I make french toast and pancakes and put them in the freezer, but I know that they're there, and we eat them all the time. Then, they're gone. I guess that that is kind of the point, but they don't last long enough. I don't have a flat griddle to cook on, so it is kind of slow going in a traditional frying pan.

I love all of these ideas, please keep them coming. I have 2 small children with another one on the way, and I work at home in the mornings, so I need food that I can feed the boys fast and get right back to work (or not even stop). Thanks for all your help guys!!!
