I mentioned a few weeks ago that I’ve been a little extreme with my breakfast planning.

For some reason, toast every morning no longer works and I’ve been preparing “more exciting” meals ahead of time.

Except I don’t want to be prepping breakfast and lunch every night for the next day.

I want my poached eggs and I want to eat them too!

Ok, poached eggs aren’t really a possibility but I’ve come up with a number of other breakfasts that can be made ahead of time and then frozen so that they can be enjoyed any morning! Breakfasts that come from the freezer, but not the store!

Here is a list of my favorite breakfast items that can be made, frozen and then saved for a later date!

Now I just need more glass tupperware…

Have any ideas to add to the list?

    Quiche or quiche cups (made in muffin tins), or breakfast breads/muffins… :)

    I do chia pudding sometimes, hard boiled eggs, Better Oats- they come prepackaged and I just throw them in a coffee cup and add hot water at work.

      Can you freeze the chia pudding?

        I have and it keeps the same texture.

    Great ideas as usual Em! I am not really a breakfast lover. I always eat something but mostly just because I know I should :).

    I love the breakfast burrito! Takes a bit of planning, but I love making them on Sunday and then just having them handy for the week. I need to get back into doing that!

    I’m liking this breakfast burrito idea! I can always eat a breakfast burrito. :) Those stratas that I made over the weekend actually reheat really well, too! (Plus they’re portion sized, even easier) I’m generally pretty horrible at thinking ahead for breakfast though, so that’s all I’ve got!

    Pancakes can freeze too!
    My other favorite make ahead breakfast is this crockpot porridge. I make tons and then freeze it in individual batces. It’s fantastic

    I like making breakfast egg muffins or mini quiches. I need to get back on that train. Quick breakfasts are the best.

      I should try freezing egg mcmuffins! If it worked my husband would be SO happy!

    I love a classic egg sandwich, or egg and tomato sandwich for breakfast. I need to try the burritos frozen. I got in a serious oatmeal rut a while back and have taken a much needed break. :)

    Great ideas! Sometimes it’s hard for me to be creative with breakfast because I wake up so hungry. I usually end up with PB toast or greek yogurt with a side of fruit. Question: how long do these items typically last in the freezer?

      Hi Amanda,
      I would make 1-2 months worth so that you eat everything within a month or two. That should ensure that the quality isn’t compromised.

    You could try breakfast cookies — I’m sure they would freeze nicely. :)
