Freezer Scrambled Egg Wraps

One of my favorite things is a quick meal, even better if it is made ahead and ready for a heat through and serve.  I recently put together these super easy scrambled egg wraps.  They came together so fast I wish I had thought of them years ago!  They freeze great and warm up fast in the microwave.  It has been awesome having these on hand for a simple breakfast on the go!  There are a lot of mornings where I just don’t have the time to cook for myself and make sure the kids are fed and happy!   These even make a great low fat snack for any time of day which is also great for me and this little bit of baby weight I’m still working off! So the process is simple.. First start with eggs, milk, tortillas, cheese & sausage (optional) Then scramble your eggs and milk, cook. While your eggs are cooking, set up your tortillas. I took my cutting board and lined up the tortillas, then placed a single slice of American cheese on each. Once I was done with that I cooked my sausage according to the directions on the package. Then I cut up my sausage into small chunks.  By now the eggs were done so I added the sausage to my eggs. Now I took the sausage & egg mixture and brought it over to the tortillas. Now all that was left was to take a spoonful of the sausage & egg mixture and place it on each tortilla.  I tried to spread out the mixture as even as possible.  And, I tried to keep each spoonful in the center of the tortilla, right on top of the cheese. Once I had spooned out all my mix, I wrapped them up with parchment paper and popped them into the freezer!  My thought here was that the parchment paper could be microwaved which works great when reheating.   I used small pieces of white duct tape to hold the parchment paper closed. Then I put together this cute little directions tag for my husband because, let’s be real here..  I’m not a morning person. I put all the wraps in a favor bag because, that’s what I had on hand but a gallon zip lock is great too.  And vuallah, breakfast for the week.  So simple. This is how they looked fresh out of the freezer.. And the best part, they are super yummy and taste fresh every time!!  #winning Print Freezer Scrambled Egg Wraps Ingredients 6 eggs 6 slices american cheese (optional) 6 soft tortillas 4 breakfast sausage (or bacon, slices of ham, diced sweet peppers, etc) splash of milk salt & pepper spray cooking oil Instructions In a large mixing bowl, scramble your 6 eggs and splash of milk.

Summer is here and it is hot!  When the air conditioner is cranking all day long the last thing I want to do is turn on the stove.  I love to break out the Crockpot in the summer because it is convenient heat free cooking!  I love the idea of freeing up my day to play outside with the kids and not having to worry about cutting our fun short to make dinner.  There is zero part of me that ever wants to break away from the nice weather to come inside and stand over a hot stove!  This recipe takes only 5 minutes to set up then you can just walk away until dinner time.  That to me is meal perfection.  You can even choose between a 3.5 or a 6.5 hour cook time.  Perfect for those beach days or aquarium trips, however you choose to spend your summer days!  This recipe makes a light and creamy slightly tart lemon sauce with a subtle garlic bite.  There will be enough to smother your chicken and also your sides which trust me, you will want to do.  Honestly, this sauce is delicious!  My entire family loves it.  The chicken pairs very well with white rice or stuffing and green vegetables like string beans or broccoli.  Bonus if their garden fresh!  Happy Summer 🙂 Print 5 Ingredient: Crockpot Lemon Garlic Chicken 5 minutes 3 hours, 30 minutes 3 hours, 35 minutes 4 Ingredients 4 Bonesless Skinless Chicken Breasts, thawed. 1 (10.5 oz) can Cream of Chicken Soup 1 (10.5 oz) can Cream of Mushroom Soup 3 Minced Garlic Cloves Juice from 1 Lemon Instructions Cook chicken in Crockpot (covered) on HIGH for 3 hours (tip: looking for a longer set and forget time? cook on LOW for 6 hours) After 3 hours on HIGH (or 6 hours on LOW) drain the juices from your Crockpot Mix together Cream of Chicken, Cream of Mushroom, Minced Garlic Cloves & Lemon Juice Pour mixture over chicken and cook on HIGH for 30 minutes (covered) or until done Serve with a side of white rice and green beans or stuffing and broccoli ENJOY!
