Breakfast that can be frozen

baloney May 2, 2007 10:12 AM

Hey all! I am looking for ideas for breakfast foods that I can freeze and my mom can easily reheat. She enjoys sweeter stuff in the morning so I guess muffins and the like would be best. I would like to cook stuff in batches so she will have stock for a while and I won't have to bake constantly. Any suggestions?

    Cornbread muffins. They freeze well, and you can add other flavors if plain corn bread is too bland for you.

      Pancakes, as mentioned above, are a great idea. Rachel Ray actually has a really good recipe for oatmeal cookie pancakes. I was skeptical at first, but they're really really good, and they reheat very well in the toaster. The link is here:http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/recip...

      In lieu of bananas we use applesauce (though I don't remember the measurements) and substitute most of the butter with applesauce. NF milk and LF sour cream are also used with marvelous results.

        Banana bread.

          These scones freeze well as long as you do not glaze before freezing.
          It has been months since I made them, but when we had them on hand we would reheat and just smear whatever preserves, honey, or other condiment we had on hand. They're also good w/cranberries subbed in for the blueberries.

            when i make pancakes i always make a double batch and freeze the leftovers. they come out great in the toaster/toaster oven. my husband nukes them and says they're fine. but i don't do that. waffles work really well, too. i usually have bagels in the freezer, too.

              French toast freezes well.

                So do regular home made waffles-just pop them in the toaser-a la eggo, but better.

                I don't have any sweet ideas, but in the South Beach Diet Cookbook there is a recipe for mini quiches that you make in advance and freeze. They use eggbeaters, but I don't know why just using whichever quiche recipe you prefer with fillings wouldn't work. Bake them in muffin tins and they are a great reheatable breakfast.

                  Made strawberry scones the other day -- its only me and the BF so ended up freezing most of them -- they're great for breakfast, just pop them in the toaster!
