Freezer meals. O's mamma 1 child; Springfield, Illinois 2455 posts
8th Apr '13

I am going to spend my next day off cooking and prepping meals for O. This way, when I drop her off at the sitters she's actually getting good food. I work 5a-2p so generally she eats breakfast and lunch. Sometimes snacks. For breakfast at home I always make breakfast burritos(egg,cheese,bacon in tortilla), stuffed crescent rolls(egg,cheese, sausage wrapped in a crescent roll), pancakes with sausage links, muffins, and little smokies wrapped in crescent rolls with cheese.
Lunches she usually has bratwurst, grilled chicken breast, grilled pork chops, pbj, and left overs from dinner. Snacks are fresh fruit and veggies, raisins, and hard pretzels.
My dilemma with food for the babysitters is I would like to cook a bunch ahead of time and freeze it and I've never done this with eggs. Any advice?

Breakfast burritos freeze well! I make about 2dozen at a time and have never had issues

Yay! (: I'm hoping the crescents do well then too. (: glad I'm not the only one who wants to have breakfast ready for when I want it. I am NOT a morning person. So cooking in the AM is out of the question. Lol

The crescents might get a little soggy but that can be fixed with a quick sit in a hot skillet if needed

Didn't think about that. That's what I do with my left over pizza tho.
