Freezer Friendly Sausage Biscuits

I'm on a quest to transform our breakfast table. 

I love feeding the family a hot, balanced breakfast before school, but it's become much more difficult with the new morning routine of this particular school year.  It would be much easier to have a fend-for-yourself, carb-heavy, quicky breakfast when everyone is eating at different times, but that's not going to prepare them for the long days with lunch times up to 7 hours after breakfast.

A healthy, filling balance of food groups, fast and easy to serve, and kid-friendly are my three wishes when it comes to breakfast.   I can achieve the healthy balance by preparing fruit and filling the fridge with milk, yogurt and juice on Sunday afternoon, but I don't want to spend my Sunday cooking and baking.

For the past few weeks I've been allowing myself  2-3 hour blocks in the kitchen for freezer cooking.  I've added breakfast foods to my rotation that includes sessions based around specific proteins. (You'll remember I just finished a beef prep session.)  Here I started with two double batches of my favorite Williams Sonoma biscuits.

Then I split the biscuits and tucked in a cooked, all-natural turkey sausage patty, courtesy of my local market.

I wrapped them in 3 and 4 packs in a fold top baggies and then a freezer bag.  If I remember the night before I pop a baggie or two in the refrigerator to thaw.  If not, it just takes a few seconds more to thaw them in the microwave. Heat thawed biscuits for about 30 seconds in the microwave, or about 1 minute in a toaster oven.

These sausage biscuits have already become a favorite with the kids, and the protein with the sausage helps them make it to lunch time without the distraction of a grumbling belly.

Any ideas on some other hearty make ahead breakfasts?  We like a little variety around here!

  1. I need to do this! My kids eat cereal almost every morning and I feel bad (of course, it's usually their choice), but I bet if I had these available they would eat them!

  2. These sausage biscuit look wonderful!! I love the idea of freezer breakfast items, but I've not gotten past breakfast burritos and smoothie packets! Thanks for sharing!
