Freezer Breakfast Sandwiches!

Pin

Mornings in my house aren’t very fun. I work the night shift so I don’t get home until almost 7am. By the time I’m feeling human again, it’s time to get my little one up and get her fed, same with my hubby. But lets be honest, I’m not in the mood at 7:30am to do any cooking.  To the rescue, freezer breakfast sandwiches!

These puppies are so easy to make, and at $0.59 a sandwich, you really can’t go wrong!

Before you get too far into making these sandwiches, make sure you have space in your freezer to set the sandwiches.

Freezer Breakfast SandwichesMakes: 16 sandwiches (18 if you have extra biscuits/english muffins)
Reheat: Place sandwich on a microwave safe plate and heat for 30 seconds, covered with a paper towel. Heat in 10 second intervals until desired temperature is reached.

2- 8 Count Tubes of refrigerated biscuits
1 package of fully cooked, frozen breakfast sausage patties
16 slices american cheese

Bake the biscuits according to package directions and let cool. Once cool, slice each biscuit down the middle. Set out all the bottom slices on a large jelly roll pan or baking sheet that will fit in your freezer. Place one slice of American cheese on each bottom slice. On top of the cheese, place one piece of frozen sausage, then put on the top biscuit slice.
sandwiches

Put the tray or trays of sandwiches in the freezer for at least 20 minutes. My freezer had quite a bit of stuff in it, so I left mine in for 40 minutes.

Once they’ve been flash frozen, get out some plastic wrap or Press n’ Seal and wrap each sandwich individually. Place each sandwich into a freezer zip lock bag. I got about 6 sandwiches to a one gallon bag.

Hope you like these sandwiches! They are so quick and yummy, and I often find my husband asking if he can have an extra 😉

Oven “Fried” Chicken

done_pin

Growing up my Mom used to make chicken with Shake n’ Bake or cornflakes. It was one of my favorite meals and has now become a staple in my own household.

My Grandmother used to make fried chicken and it is toooo diiieeee for! But as much as any of us likes KFC or some homemade fried chicken, all that grease is definitely not good for you or your gut. To the rescue, oven fried chicken! You still get that crunch, without the grease. Personally, I think it tastes a little better than fried anyway.

Oven Fried Chicken

Oven at 425F for 35 minutes

One package boneless, skinless chicken breasts, thighs or tenders
3 cups Cornflakes cereal, made into crumbs or crushed
1 cup flour
1/2 cup bread crumbs
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup smoked paprika
2 TB Old Bay seasoning
1 TB Seasoned Salt
Salt & Pepper to taste

It might sound silly, but instead of buying the box of already pulverized cornflakes, I buy the big box from Walmart and crush it up myself. Just get yourself a gallon ziplock bag, pour in the cereal and get to squishing. If  you have little ones, this is definitely a job they would enjoy doing!

Find three deep dishes to use to bread the chicken. In the first place the flour, half the paprika, some salt and pepper. In the second, put the beaten eggs and milk. And in the last, place as much of the cornflakes and breadcrumbs in it and the rest of the seasonings.

Roll the chicken into the flour mixture, then into the egg mixture and finally the cornflakes. I usually press the chicken down into the cornflake breading  on each side to make sure it’s completely coated. The flour and egg make like a glue to help the cornflakes stick.

Place your chicken on a foil lined baking sheet and sprinkle with more salt and pepper. It might take more than you think, considering the cornflakes are rather bland.

Place in the oven and bake at 425 degrees for 35 minutes. Once done, let them sit for a couple minutes and then serve! We enjoy these with Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ Sauce. 🙂
