    Peanut butter and jelly is actually pretty decent for breakfast, and is easily frozen. I buy one loaf of bread specifically for this purpose. I spread peanut butter on every single slice, assembly line style -- about 1 teaspoon on each piece. Then, only on 50% of the pieces (half) I spread a thin layer of all-fruit jam of some kind. Sandwich them together. The specific reason you want PB on every slice is that you want the jam *between* the layers of PB. I keeps the jam from getting the bread damp or sodden. I then put every sandwich in a wax bag, and put all the wax bags bake into the bread bag, and freeze it. Every morning I take one out (or the night before). They defrost very, very quickly. Certainly by lunch or a late breakfast. It's a perfect freezer staple and you know, no matter what, if you forget your breakfast or lunch, you've got a sack of PBJ sandwiches are thawed in 20-30 min tops (long enough to take a shower and get dressed, or, when you get to work, it's thawed by mid-morning and perfect at lunch. Very inexpensive when compared to uncrustables.

    Great ideas Barb, Jacob's 1st day at his new school is tomorrow and we now have a bit of a commute so it's going to be early mornings. Make a head breakfast ideas are perfect, especially the ones he can eat in the car on the way to school. Thanks for sharing

    I found your blog through the blog hop. I have been doing a little googling on this very thing recently since I'm about to enter the nursing program and need something quick in the morning with the idea of being able to freeze this. Thank you for this post!!http://faithhopeabound.blogspot.com/

    Thanks for gathering all these ideas in one place! Do you think the bacon for the bacon egg cups could be precooked a bit (but not till crispy) before putting it in the muffin cups?

    This looks so delicious! I love hot breakfast but in Germany we usually eat bread and some spread. Scrambled eggs and pancakes are for special days mostly. Now that my hubby is on his maternity leave (what is this called for the daddies?) - he is home one month so we can spend time together as a family - we have special breakfast more often. Thank you so much for that yummy collection! Reini from Germany

    Another good one that you can freeze is Breakfast Bubble Biscuits. <a href="http://richestoragsbydori.blogspot.com/2012/03/stuffed-breakfast-bubble-biscuits.htmlhttp://richestoragsbydori.blogspot.com/2012/03/st... />They are stuffed with eggs, hashbrown, cheese and bacon and can be frozen. Easy to make too! Love the ideas you posted.

    Wow! This is just what I was looking for Barb! We start school in two days and I was dreading the return to having to prepare faster breakfasts in the morning. At the end of last year's school year, I found myself whipping up smoothies day after day and the kids were starting groan a bit, missing hot cooked breakfasts. I am going to become a new follower! Thanks again.
