Since the start of the New Year I have been seeing lots of posts about meal planning on Facebook and blogs. Has your family had any successful meal planning menus? Honestly, I haven’t been very consistent. Last week I had a great week planning wise, I even went to far as to meal plan my breakfasts! Working midnights, maintaining some kind of eating schedule is my biggest challenge. I have started working on smaller meals throughout the day. On mornings I work I try to eat breakfast at 5am and that seems to set my schedule for the rest of the day. Last week I decided that I wanted more of a variety for breakfast. I saw this recipe on Mom on Time Out and decided to tweak it for my liking. I headed off to Big Y to get my supplies!
I got sausage, precooked bacon shredded cheese, eggs and 8-inch tortilla rounds. I started off browning half of the pork sausage roll in my pre-heated skillet.
Once the sausage was browned I lined a bowl with a paper towel and set it aside to cool. Next thing I did was get my scrambled eggs ready! I made my scrambled eggs with just American Cheese. Then I let these cool before I made my wraps.
I set out my tortilla rounds on wax paper so I could wrap them easier. I have yet to master how the heck to wrap up these things, these might be a tad overloaded.

Like I said I can’t wrap these things to save my life! Thank goodness these actually closed, there was much man handling and coercing for these to close. Next time I might have to watch a few YouTube videos on how this is actually done. This one actually doesn’t look too bad. I was quite proud of this one!
After I tackled the folding, I wrapped them in the wax paper, sealed them with tape, labeled them and threw them in the freezer.
To reheat these I placed them frozen in the microwave for 45 seconds, then I flipped them over and microwaved for another 45 seconds and they were perfect! I was so excited that these turned out to be so good. It’s a nice to have more of a variety to quick breakfasts than just cereal and chocolate chip muffins. What kind of quick fixes does your family do for breakfast?
