1) Freezer Breakfast Burritos
For each burrito, I use 1-2 slices of cooked bacon, 2 scrambled eggs, shredded colby jack cheese (probably 1/4- 1/2 cup), and 1 flour tortilla (or use your own healthier homemade Soaked Tortillas).
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Lay out bacon on cookie sheet. Layer eggs and cheese on top of bacon (as if you were laying them inside a tortilla). Freeze about 15-30 minutes. Place frozen bacon mixture in the middle of tortilla. Roll up. Wrap well in aluminum foil. Label and freeze. When ready to eat, bake at 350 for 35-45 minutes. Unwrap and enjoy a hot breakfast burrito!
2) Mix up dry components the night before.
I make a German Apple Pancake on Christmas morning. The night before, I mix up all the dry ingredients in a tupperware container. I even slice up the apples and put lemon juice on them, and store in the fridge. I set my skillet on the stove and put my stand mixer on the counter (I use it to whip up the eggs). Then in the morning I only need a few minutes for prep time, and I can enjoy a relaxing Christmas morning with my family! The same thing goes for biscuits, pancakes, waffles, and muffins- you can easily mix up the dry ingredients the night before...
3) If you follow a Nourishing Traditions style diet, you should be soaking your grains. I've found soaked pancakes and oatmeal to be the easiest. For soaked oatmeal, just mix your oats, acid medium (1 Tbsp whey, lemon juice, or vinegar) and water in the pot you'll be cooking them, cover with a clean cloth, and leave on the stove overnight. In the morning, cook as usual.
