Ready Made Breakfasts for One Week
The most difficult transition for low carbers is breakfast.
I'd like to come up with ready made breakfast items that can go in my freezer or pre-mixed/quick fix breakfast ideas that supply at least 20 grams of protein for a week. Mix and match ideas will be OK too.
I want the convenience of frozen waffles, english muffins and box cereals in low carb.

Hi Adrianna, hope you got some answers elsewhere, since there were no replies here. I haven't found any breakfast recipe to freeze, however, I do have a few that I cook up ahead of time and just refrigerate for about 5 days. In addition to hard boiled eggs, I scramble a dozen eggs and mix in either breakfast sausage or real bacon bits -- just heat up a serving each morning. A week ago, I made this quiche: (loved it)
Sausage Spinach Shroom Egg Casserole
1 roll sausage (Jimmy Dean…Hot, or whatever)
½ to 1 onion
1 large can mushrooms, or 2 small cans, (or fresh x 7, chopped)
1 chopped red bell pepper
1 bag frozen spinach (1/2 to ¾ of the bag)
1 Cup shredded cheese (I add more)
¼ C. cream
Salt and pepper, sprinkle nutmeg (I didn't add this - MS)
Add (optional) dried basil/oregano and top with paprika
Brown sausage and onion. Add mushrooms, spinach and spices. Cook until tender, drain, pour into a greased 9x9 baking dish. Beat Eggs, cream, salt and pepper. Sprinkle sausage mixture with cheese, pour egg mixture over and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
I sprinkled a bit of cayenne pepper on it to kick it up a notch!
I am ever amazed at the number of times in one lifetime that I can reinvent myself.

DH makes burgers and I heat one up, fry an egg, put that on top of burger with cheese. Breakfast burger! Also SFS pancakes can stay in your fridge for a week.

Bacon, bacon, and bacon. Fry a bunch up and put in the fridge, nuke it for 30 seconds on the day you want to eat it. You can even find microwaveable bacon at the grocery store.
I buy bags of microwaveable sausage at Wal Mart. Not ideal for every day, but keeps me from justifying a cheat for convenience.
I also love to make egg casserole in cupcake cups - I even like them cold.
And leftovers! Go ahead - live on the wild side and eat dinner for breakfast!
