DIY Breakfast Freezer Sandwiches

At my house, mornings are hectic! I have three children to get dressed, fed, and to school. I also help my husband get out the door in the mornings. Needless to say most mornings I feel quite overwhelmed.

 

The other day it hit me, why not try and make your mornings less hectic! I began to think of ways that could help my mornings when I realized it was breakfast that threw a hiccup in my day.

 

My two youngest will eat cereal (EASY!) but my oldest and my husband are not down with cereal in the morning. I usually find myself pouring cereal, then making a couple of breakfast sandwiches, making my husbands lunch, and finally making my son’s school lunch all while shouting commands. “GET DRESSED!” “EAT YOUR BREAKFAST” “WE HAVE TO GO!!!!!”

 

To say I was overwhelmed was an understatement. That’s when I decided to try my hand at breakfast freezer sandwiches.

 

 

what are breakfast freezer sandwiches?

As I have been scrolling through Pinterest I have seen pins on freezer breakfast sandwiches but I had never read them or even tried them, but I was determined to try my hand at them and to do them as cheap as possible.

 

So what exactly is a breakfast freezer sandwich? It’s exactly what it sounds like. A sandwich that you reach into the freezer, heat up, eat, and go!! Something that’s fast and easy! I also like the fact that I know the ingredients and that they are affordable!

 

On my last grocery shopping trip I bought all the ingredients for my sandwiches and I must say, they turned out great!! They came out to be just around.50 a sandwich. You can’t even buy a sandwich that cheap at McDonalds! And these are WAY better than any McDonalds breakfast sandwich.

DIY Seasoning mix for spaghetti

 

I grew up eating lots of spaghetti, chili, and tacos and in fact, they are some of the first foods I learned to cook. They were super simple and I could do it all by myself.

One common factor my mother used in each one of her recipes were seasoning packets. These seasoning packets are the ones you get at the store that cost between .33- $1.  You know the type where you follow the directions on the back and you have dinner in no time!

I have many childhood memories that circle around these dishes! When I became a mom, I wanted to introduce these dishes to my children. There was just one problem. A lot of these packets are so full of fillers, sodium, and even MSG! YIKES!!

I didn’t want to feed my family this mess so I knew there had to be a better way!

Easiest Eggplant Parmesan Recipe

When I first met my husband, he was pretty much vegan.

He would splurge and maybe have a dairy product but for the most part he was vegan.

Then he met me. The sweet tea loving, fast food eating, Mississippi girl. “You don’t eat what???? How do you get protein??? ” I’m sure those were a few questions I asked him!

 

However, after being with me a while his vegan ways went to the way side and he splurged and had meat with me every now and then.

But I also started to lean more towards a vegetarian life style. So I would always joke and say we were half vegetarians.

 

A few years pass and I realized that going vegetarian and eventually vegan is something that I want to strive and do for my family (still striving!)! We can leave this for another blog day!

 

So my search began for vegetarian/vegan ideas! At first it was hard, but it got easier as the days went on!

I’ll share more about our eating life style and some recipes I love to try another day, but today I want to share with you the most amazing eggplant parm recipe!

I mean it’s so amazing that my husband could almost eat the entire dish!
