Edited to add a picture of them all baked up and delicious!
Before we get into the Freezer Meal, don’t forget to head over to our Riverton Housewives Round Up to link up all your amazing creations! We want to see it all! As a bonus, if we get over 100 link ups at this party we will be doing a surprise giveaway for one of our awesome linkers! So get to linking up and spread the word!
Okay…on to the recipe!
This is for freezable Breakfast Rolls! These are very yummy, easy to put together and great for a quick, delicious breakfast!
To begin with I made my cinnamon roll dough in my breadmaker. If you have another roll or bread dough you’d like to use, give it a try! 🙂
While my dough is going I scramble 8 eggs and brown 1 lb of ground breakfast sausage. I used Farmland’s Best Original Pork Sausage. Also I bought shredded cheese, but if you have block cheese, use this time to shred it. I used about 1.5 cups…feel free to use more if you like extra cheesy rolls! 🙂 Then chop 1/2 of a green bell pepper.
So once my dough is complete I roll it out in to the best rectangle I can…which usually isn’t very good, but that’s okay! I rolled this out thinner than I do for cinnamon rolls.
Next layer on your sausage, eggs, peppers and cheese.
So here is the picture of my sausage all spread out…yeah, I could have SWORN I took a picture of the whole thing layered with the eggs, cheese and peppers too…apparently not! SORRY!
Now it’s time to roll it up like you would with a cinnamon roll. (Never rolled up a cinnamon roll before? Head over to this post!) Once you get it rolled up, use a serrated knife to cut your rolls. I cut them in smaller slices than I do for my cinnamon rolls. I was able to get 18 rolls, 6 in each pan.
Even unbaked they look yummy! When I do freezer meals I use my Pyrex glass pans. But once I run out of those, I head to the Dollar Store and stock up on their foilware. (You can also get some here) You can usually get 2 or 3 in a pack for $1.00. And the bonus is the round ones come with lids! 🙂
Get this bad boy covered up and pop it in the freezer until you need it!
If I’m not using my Pyrex I write the instructions on the lid or top foil of the meal. That way if I’m out of town (or my husband wants to be a sweetie and make breakfast or dinner for us. :-)) whoever grabs a meal out of the freezer knows what to do. For this one…
Put in fridge the night prior (to thaw), then let sit uncovered while oven heats to 400°F. This will give your dough a bit of time to raise. After that bake for 20-25 mins, give or take depending on your oven. I’ve never baked these from a frozen state, so I couldn’t tell you how long that would take.
We really enjoy these and hope you do too! 🙂
