Egg in the Basket
We are always looking for inexpensive, tasty, easy to make freezer meals. This one I learned from a friend last week. Thank you Sunshine! It is called Egg in the Basket. Freezer meals don’t always have to be a casserole you pull out of the freezer and bake. Most often, we pull ingredients out of the freezer to make a fresh meal. Then add fresh ingredients to it. This meal is called egg in the hole. Ingredients needed: Loaf of bread from your freezer (I usually store 4 in my freezer at all times), eggs and fresh toppings. I love avocado and salsa. My kids love maple syrup.
Step 1: Use a cookie cutter to cut out the center of your piece of bread
Step 2: Heat a frying pan, rub butter on the skillet or use cooking spray
Step 3: Place cut out bread on the skillet
Step 4: Crack an egg and pour into the hole in the bread. I usually use 1/2 egg per piece of bread
Step 5: Cook for 2 min then flip and cook the egg the rest of the way
Step 6: Serve warm with maple syrup or salsa and freshly sliced avocado. Enjoy!
Chocolate Chunk Pumpkin Bread
Today is the 1st day we turned on our furnace! Personally, I just love the cool air that lasts all day now and the smell of fall foods cooking in my kitchen. To celebrate the first day of Fall my girls and I whipped out 2 loaves of Chocolate Chunk Pumpkin Bread. I can’t even tell you how good our house smells! Smells of cinnamon, nutmeg and pumpkin pie. The Chocolate Chunk Pumpkin bread was so good that all we have left of the two loaves is about four slices. I’m going to have to make some more tomorrow! It is so delicious. Happy Fall!
Cinnamon Rolls for Now and Later.
It is a warm cinnamon roll kind of a day. The snow is 4 feet deep outside and it has been around for a very long time. I am 8 months pregnant and my two youngest girls are home with me painting and watching old Mickey Mouse cartoons. Fortunately two weeks ago I made cinnamon rolls and popped half in the freezer unbaked to save for a best friends weekend I hosted at my house on Thursday-Saturday. Unfortunately with all the excitement of having all the guests (11 little kids and 5 adults) I spaced pulling out of the frozen cinnamon rolls to bake for my best friends. Today I am glad I forgot though, because we could have fresh baked cinnamon rolls without all the work. This recipe is better then any recipe I have ever tried. I didn’t include it in my book “Fabulous Freezer Meals” because at the time I was assembling recipes, I was anti-shortening and anti-white flour. Now that I am big and pregnant and it is so cold outside, I am embracing shortening and white flour recipes…they just taste the best. Hope you enjoy. This is one of my very favorite comfort food recipes.

Most people don’t really hate cooking — they just hate the pressure and all the work of coming up with something for dinner every night of the week. You can build up a good supply of dinners in your freezer this way. Jenny says: “On the nights you feel like cooking, you can. But when you don’t feel like it, use those ‘frozen assets’ in the freezer. Along with more family time, freezer meals also help you save $200-$300 a month. Freezer meals save you time, money and sanity.”
