Cheap and Easy Freezable Breakfast Recipes

Once again….trying to spread out the paycheck.  I homeschool, so there is no “eat breakfast and lunch at school” and save money throughout the year….my kids eat.  They don’t just eat.  They E.A.T.  I am blessed with non-picky eaters and I am blessed with the fact that they are growing, but my budget stays the same…between $200-300 a month on groceries…if that.  So, I’m going to whip these things up, mainly because I have the ingredients, freezer paper and baggies and we are out of cereal LOL

EGG CUPCAKES

Grease cupcake tin and preheat oven to 350.

Melt 2 T. butter and saute things together that you like in an omelet (mushrooms, onions, broccoli, ham, turkey, etc).  Place the mixture filling 1/2 of muffin tin.  In separate bowl, lightly beat 9 eggs with a splash of water.  Pour the egg mixture over the veggie/meat mixture to top and bake for 10 minutes.  Cool and freeze.

FRENCH TOAST STICKS

Mix together 2 eggs, 4 tsp. milk and 1 tsp. cinnamon.  Lightly coat each side of bread and place on griddle cooking both sides.  Remove, cool, and either cut into strips or triangles.  Freeze.

MAKE AHEAD BURRITOS
